Welcome to harmonia mundi, United Kingdom store
- 180g LIMITED EDITION VINYL LP
Rattling with the sounds of migration from the cauldron of New York City, Hazmat Modine returns rejuvenated with a new album, serving up the bones of American music on a platter of silver, brass, reeds, electric guitars, violin, and vocal harmonies, and as always, presided over by the dashing harmonica wizard Wade Schuman.
Musically, the inspiration is drawn from Memphis and rock steady, garnished with the sounds of Egyptian Afro-pop, American roots and Tuvan soul. Set to simmer, it's blended and distilled into a distinctive Hazmatian stew. The emphasis is on tight vocal harmonies that ring with gospel overtones. The arrangements are crisp and elaborate in a style that can only be referred to as Baroque Blues. The Tuvan throat singing group Alash guest on two tracks.
