#192: Bedouine, “Bird Songs of a Killjoy”

Azniv Korkejian’s first album as Bedouine, drawing in equal parts from 60s folk music and the easygoing vibes of LA’s Echo Park (some sort of 21st century Laurel Canyon?), got us hooked for weeks. We can already tell the same is bound to happen with her second LP, “Bird Songs of a Killjoy”, finally released last week. Plus: new songs by The Hold Steady, Illiterate Light, Frankie Cosmos, Jesca Hoop, Mega Bog, Palehound, Black Belt Eagle Scout, Courtney Hartman, Erin Rae, Slaughter Beach, Dog, Los Retros, Bamboo, Chelsea Wolfe, Leslie Stevens, Honeysuckle, Rickie Lee Jones, Don DiLego, Jacob Faurholt, Paper Beat Scissors, Alan Power, Calexico and Iron & Wine, and Jamestown Revival.

Festival Sinsal 2015

Three days, a boat, water. This is a big part of what we already knew about this year’s edition of Festival Sinsal, a small festival which takes place every summer in the even smaller archipelago of San Simón, a couple of islets in the middle of the Ría de Vigo only accessible by boat. The lineup (which is practically the same on the two days of the festival) is unknown to the visitors until the first boat arrives in the island. The fact that Saturday’s tickets sold out some days before the festival hints at the trust that festivalgoers have on the organizers of the festival, the kind people at Sinsal, an organization that has put out dozens of concerts in Galicia (northwestern Spain) during the past eleven years.
