Land of Kush: The Big Mango

Sam Shalabi’s latest offering on Constellation Records features cascading and propulsive female vocals vying for position with a 20-person-strong orchestra, channeling the chaos of Cairo.

Bill Orcutt returns to the electric guitar; shreds with Chris Corsano

Bill Orcutt and percussionist Chris Corsano have just released the bruising album The Raw and the Cooked, a 25-minute live set which Pitchfork calls “so consistently exhilarating that it matters little whether the pair are playing slow or fast.” A former member of the 90s noise band Harry Pussy, this is Orcutt’s first full album on the electric guitar in over a decade, and his fiery runs are complemented well […]
