Maddy Prior & The Girls - Under the Covers (England 2005) - @VBR~256

What do Shania Twain, Chrissie Hynde, Keane, Sting and Sinead O’Connor all have in common? They are all artists that appear on ‘Under the Covers’. Maddy Prior, Abbie Lathe and Claudia Gibson harmonize their way through some well-known compositions. Maddy’s wonderful, accompanied by two other fantastic singers, reinterprets the material, demonstrating that the gap between folk and mainstream music is not as large as some may think.
Maddy explains: “We set off on this project with certain ideas in mind, but as I have discovered over the years, projects tend to have their own agendas and will defeat your best endeavours. So we end here with a completely different outcome from that expected- two discs instead of one.” CD 1 Under the Covers is more or less the album the trio intended to make- a selection of songs from the musical mainstream they love to sing, while the second, shorter CD entitled Pensive maintains a more reflective mood.

Ilgi - Seju Veju (Latvia 2000) @320



"...pure "postmodern folklore" by the group Ilgi. Steeped in tradition, these performers also are no strangers to rock; along with traditional Latvian instruments, you will hear percussion, guitars, accordions, electric bass and youthful sensibilities in touch with both the 15th and 21st centuries... Ilgi's distinct Latvian verses offer linguistic rhythms and punctuation that perfectly complement the accompanying instruments, whether the traditional bagpipe or the backbeat of bass guitar and trap drums. One could reach and compare the sound to other familiar European folk-rock bands but that would shortchange this well-executed album."

Den Fule - Lugumleik (Sweden-1993) [Folk-Rock] @256



Den Fule (meaning "The ugly one") was formed primarily from veterans of the 1970s Swedish folk rock scene. The band produced two albums through Xource Records in the early 1990s then disbanded. Their first album Lugumleik met with immediate critical acclaim and won the Swedish Grammy for "Best Folk Music Album of the Year 1993". The album was described for the Swedish Grammy awards as a blend of jazz, rock, funk and traditional folk music.

Although the band's music is largely adapted from traditional Nordic folk music, it crosses numerous genres, combining R&B elements with rock riffs and jazz phrasing. The melodic component of the music is dominated by flute and saxophone; numerous tracks are instrumental but male and female vocals are occasionally used.
