    Dream A Little Dream

    At the time of Dream a Little Dream's release, the von Trapp family was more newsworthy than it had been in a while: The Sound of Music Live!, a television adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical, was a ratings success when it aired in December 2013. More poignantly, Maria von Trapp, the last surviving member of the original Trapp Family Singers, passed in February 2014 at age 99.


    On this collaboration with Pink Martini, Sofie, Melanie, Amanda, and August von Trapp -- the great-grandchildren of the von Trapps immortalized in The Sound of Music -- continue the family tradition with beautifully harmonized versions of songs ranging from Johannes Brahms' In Stiller Nacht to the national anthem of Rwanda, Rwanda Nziza. Working with Pink Martini was an inspired choice, as they almost always bring out the best in their collaborators -- along with the unexpected, like Kuroneko No Tango, a version of the Italian song Black Cat Tango inspired by Japanese singer Osamu Minagawa's 1969 rendition. The group sounds just as natural backing the von Trapps as they do working with their usual vocalists, and Dream a Little Dream bears the same mix of kitsch and sublime beauty as one of Pink Martini's own albums. Die Dorfmusik sounds like it could have strolled in from The Lawrence Welk Show, while the version of ABBA's Fernando sounds like it came from a Swedish Carnaval parade thanks to the involvement of the Lions of Batucada.


    The inevitable Sound of Music inclusions are handled in a similarly playful fashion, with Wayne Newton taking the lead on The Lonely Goatherd and Charmian Carr (who portrayed Liesl in the film of the musical) joining the von Trapps for a sweet version of Edelweiss that recalls Pink Martini's work with Phyllis Diller on their previous album, Get Happy. The von Trapps balance Dream a Little Dream's quaint and quirky moments with more contemporary-sounding tracks, three of which were penned by August. Storm and Friend recall '60s folk in their acoustic earnestness, and the Chieftains give the closing track, Thunder, a pretty, if somewhat out of place, Celtic twist. As is often the case with Pink Martini's albums, the most intimate moments here are among the best.


    A softer-than-soft rendition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's Hushabye Mountain captures the exquisite poignancy of vintage children's music, while the delicate Le Premier Bonheur du Jour and a starlit version of the album's title track cast a similar spell. Ultimately, Dream a Little Dream is an entertaining blend of both parties' strengths, showcasing Pink Martini's globetrotting pop and introducing the next generation of von Trapp music.

    Cry Baby

    The Cry Baby album is a softpack with a full-color 32-page storybook written by Melanie Martinez and illustrated by Chloe Tersigni.


    Melanie Martinez wants to tell you a story. It's fictional, but it's also about her, in a way that's somewhat exaggerated and darker than reality. The tale traces through Melanie's debut album Cry Baby, a collection of pop songs that draw inspiration from singer-songwriter folk and hip-hop and follow a character who learns to be more comfortable with who she is. The journey of the character, who Melanie dubbed Cry Baby, mirrors the musician's own.

    No Deal Remixed: Presented By Gilles Peterson

    Internationally renowned DJ and radio personality Gilles Peterson has called upon some of the most exciting names across the jazz, electronic and indie worlds to rework Melanie De Biasio's acclaimed album No Deal, including EELS, The Cinematic Orchestra, Hex, and Seven Davis Junior.


    EELS haunting, orchestral reworking of opening track I Feel You is the first ever remix by Mark Oliver Everett (AKA E), who fell in love with De Biasio's music when she supported EELS at the Royal Albert Hall in June. The Cinemantic Orchestra give I'm Gonna Leave You an intense reworking, while beat maker C. Crisci, a.k.a Clap! Clap! gives the same track an afro-beat slant. Seven Davis Jr gives title-track No Deal an old school house flavour, while LA's Jonwayne coats With All My Love a lush balm of hip-hop. Japan's Toshio Matsuura (AKA Hex) adds an impressive urgency to The Flow, whilst France's modern classical composer Chassol provides a downtempo and discordant take on Sweet Darling Pain.

    No Snare

    Melanie Valera's third full length album moves away from some of the more exuberant dance oriented songs of past years into a darker and more melancholy direction. What No Snare retains is Valera's emotional clarity and eloquence. Her lyrics remain light on their feet, moving with ease around the complexities of her compositions, her vocals rolling hard with the strength of conviction.

    For the last three years, singer-songwriter, musician and producer Jesse Mac Cormack has collaborated with many artists on the Montreal music scene, including Emilie & Ogden, Melanie Boulay and Rosie Valland.

    Modern Nature

    THE CHARLATANS:- Tim Burgess, Mark Collins, Martin Blunt and Tony Rogers - release their twelfth album, MODERN NATURE on BMG Chrysalis. The album comes after a brutally difficult year for the band following the death from brain cancer of their old friend and drummer Jon Brookes last year. Rogers says that they were determined to carry on, to honour Brookes' memory - Jon was adamant that there was going to be another Charlatans record, and you have to put that into your own thoughts. The band went into their studio Big Mushroom in January 2014 and as Tim recalls We were aching for the summer when we wrote it. It was freezing and we were trying to write songs that made us happy. " The result is Modern Nature. Featuring eleven new tracks, including the recent limited edition 7" single and 6 Music A List record 'Talking In Tones', the album was produced by The Charlatans and Jim Spencer and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Portishead). The album features a cacophony of contributors from their three temporary drummers - Pete Salisbury of The Verve, Stephen Morris of New Order and Gabriel Gurnsey of DFA's avant-disco group Factory Floor, to Kate Bushs' backing singers Melanie Marshall and Sandra Marvin, strings by Sean O' Hagan and brass courtesy of Dexys' Big Jim Paterson. Q have already described the album as "one the finest of their career."

    No Deal (Out Of Stock)

    Melanie De Biasio is a graduate of the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles and already an acclaimed artist in her home country of Belgium and in the neighbouring Francophone nation to the south. Initially heralded as a new voice in jazz, albeit jazz d'autres univers, other-worldly, so to speak, her first album A Stomach Is Burning was closer to the smoky, smouldering sound you dream of stumbling upon in a jazz cellar. Preferably in Paris or New York in, let's say, 1959.


    No Deal, her sophomore album, appears almost monochromatically minimalist at first, A simple cover shot. Melanie has cut her hair. Miles Davis A Kind Of Blue typography. Seven songs, through which her own voice drifts gracefully, at times disappearing altogether. Like a tintype photograph, this record needs time to develop, for the details to become clear, as if by magic.


    No Deal comes in at 33 and a third minutes, which could be mistaken for a nod to the golden age of the jazz LP. And yet its brevity (or succinctness) is genuinely hard to believe. It reverberates, echoes an resonates. Throw a stone into the lake and the concentric ripples seem to go on for ever.
