Fiona Talkington presents an eclectic selection of music, including an exclusive session from American dobro-player Jerry Douglas and Norwegian accordionist Stian Carstensen, recording together for the first time and creating tracks specially for Late Junction.
Farmers Market seems to be a passion project solely dedicated to making the music the band finds interesting to explore at the time, without greater worries about how to sell the album.
To celebrate the show’s 4th birthday we bring you one of our best ever shows as we catch up on some of the wonderful new releases from the first 2 months of 2013. It’s a two-hour mega music fest with full length tracks from Steven Wilson, Lifesigns, Farmers Market, Syzergy, Neal Morse, Votum, Godsticks, The Custodian, T, The Living, La Desoorden, Taurus and Echoe.
Farmers Market stick out like a sore thumb in a world of po-faced indie rock groups and braggadocio-enamoured hip-hop superstars, but the thumb is pointing all the way up – their live show must be a treat.
yet another band I was previously unaware of until immersing myself in the Marianas Trench of esoteric prog that is the reviewers pile here at DPRP Towers. This band, whom I am listening to right now at a wife-annoying volume (luckily for me, she’s out at the moment) and without the benefit of a press release to hand, appear to be a Mahavishnu influenced world music progressive band with exotic instrumentation aplenty, occasionally topped off with female Indian (?) singers. It shouldn’t work, but it does…oh yes sir-ee!
We’re mastering the new CD.
Stian and Knut Bjørnar (masterpool).
