A bewitching collection of songs that journeys from lush, beguiling storytelling to uplifting, punch-the-air anthems. Allowed to mature and breathe without losing the widescreen, multi-textured kaleidoscope of sound that marked their debut, Let the Cards Fall refines The Breath's unique Manchester take on alt-folk.
Bokanté + Metropole Orkest (Conducted by Jules Buckley)
Bokanté traces the blues from its roots in Africa and the Arab world throughout the diaspora and into a modern context. Band leader Michael League (Snarky Puppy) plays everything from oud, Minimoog and fretless acoustic bass to bendir, riq and daf frame drum. The album features Guadalupan vocalist Malika Tirolien and is a collaboration with the Metropole Orkest and arranger/conductor Jules Buckley.
