Default Vote for a FAIR album before May 31

Every two weeks the Folk And International Roots Album Club votes for an album that they will listen to and discuss in the coming weeks.
Anyone can vote in this poll, but if you vote, please follow through and be ready to discuss whichever album wins the poll.

Here we are again, back after the break, with some fresh albums to consider :-

Newer release from a prolific English folky.

Songs From a World Apart - Lévon Minassian and Armand Amar.

Solar Shears by Shooglenifty (2001)



Shooglenifty do more than just add an electronic gloss to Celtic-sounding music, they create a convincing marriage of techno and traditional elements to produce “hypno-folkadelic” or “acid-croft” music. Play it loud to hear all the delicious details, and to understand why this band chose, for their name, a Scottish word that means “shake or agitate”.

^ According to fazstp, MB`s very own V.M.Bhatt expert, this album is better than his more publicised collaboration with Ry Cooder, "A Meeting By The River" .

Fly,Fly, My Sadness by Huun-Huur-Tu (1996)



This starkly beautiful album is not for the faint-hearted. Uplifting and uncompromising, you have to hear it to believe it.
Although it`s a bit late arriving, there`s still plenty of time to cast a vote in this poll before it closes!

I'll vote for Shooglenifty in a post, since the poll appears to be closed.

That's because the poll closed yesterday ;D

I wanted to vote for it too, though. Based on the album art and description.

Counting in the late-arriving votes from Frownland and Mrd00d, makes the poll totals :-
Shooglenifty: 2
V.M.Bhatt and Hun-Huur-Tu: 1 each

So, if no-one objects, we`ll make Shooglenifty the winner. We have until June 7 to track it down and give it a play, then a discussion thread for their "Solar Shears" album will be opening up.
See you there, I hope.

No objections. Just doing a bit of a Google and found out they played here just up the road in March. I'm so out of the loop with live music around here.

What a pity you missed them, stp ! You might`ve had a night to remember, and a first-hand concert report would`ve been very interesting.
Thinking about it though, "just up the road", which means 10 minutes away to an Englishman, might not mean the same thing in Australia :-

More FAIR related Googling turned up video of a meeting between Huun Hur Tu and Frank Zappa. I think it was pretty informal from the footage I saw but if you're interested try searching Frank Zappa Salad Party 93.

LOL, yeah just up the road in the outback takes on a whole new meaning but here in suburban Victoria I was about 5 km away from the Shooglenifty gig.
