Sven Wunder’s third album in three years is out now on Mr Bongo. After exploring 70s Anatolian rock and Japanese min’yō in his last two fusion jazzy tomes, “Natura Morta” draws from still life paintings and its relationship with nature.
Robert Finley’s story as a musician that finally has their breakthrough on their 50/60s is not unique – see Charles Bradley or Seasick Steve – but always impressing to hear about. After decades of obscurity, blues/soul songwriter Finley was spotted busking outside a music festival in Alabama, and the rest is history. His second album, “Sharecropper’s Son”, produced by Dan Auerbach, is out now. It’s our album of the week.
