Default Vote for a FAIR album before January 14

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.

After a Christmas lull, we are back with five albums to choose from.
( As more than half the nominations are from stp, he still has a special dispensation and is entitled to vote for one of his own albums if he wants.)

Kef by Aram Bajakian (2011)



Three musicians who can`t decide if they`re a traditional Armenian wedding band, a jazz combo or a rock power trio, so they just put it all together in one album. This instrumental album is noisier and less traditional than most FAIR club nominations, but it retains just enough roots to be included here I hope.

So on to my next attempt...

Dos Cafundós - Capitão Coração (2012)

If Zappa was Brazilian I would imagine it would sound something like this. He is cited as an influence by the band and it is certainly apparent.



Thanks as always to the people who make the effort to share their enthusiasm for FAIR music here.

Now let`s get voting ....

What was the winner of the last time we did this? I've forgotten and I don't think that I checked out the album to begin with.

Thanks, Vanilla ! It`s an honour for us to have a visit from you !
The winner by a landslide is Dos Cafundos, so on January 21st, we`ll be opening a thread to compare our impressions of it. In the meantime, if you have any trouble tracking it down, let us know.

Would you mind please giving me a mediafire upload? And I'm honored to come join the club. I hope I can have some interesting input for you all.

Yes, I`m sure you`ll have something interesting to say, Vanilla ! I hope you`ll like some of the music we listen to here.

At the moment, I`m just listening to Dos Cafundos on Soundcloud, here:-
Dos Cafundos - Capitão Coração

If I find another format I`ll let you know - or, who knows, perhaps someone else can help ...
