Obscurity Points // “Yearning and Harmony”

April 25th, 2017 | Features | 0 Comments

I found Tri Atma‘s bonkers 1982 album Yearning and Harmony while paging through the used records at my ever-beloved all-time favourite record store in the world, Academy Records in Greenpoint. The cover and especially its back-cover were just too classic: a German new age guitar-tablas band that teamed up with a crazy old synthesizer dude to make a record in 1982. Please, Adult Swim, do something like Live at the Necropolis with this.

Of course, I wouldn’t be writing about it if the music weren’t very close to exactly what I wanted to hear. The guitar and tabla work are solid, but top marks here go to Klaus Netzle for exceedingly melodic and beautifully kosmische┬ásynth work.

Nova Scotia’s┬ábeloved Joel Plaskett teams with his dad Bill for a wonderful album showcasing the father-son team’s love of Canadian maritime celtic music, English folk and indie-pop/rock: Solidarity.
