Remembering Archie Roach (1956-2022)
Took the Children Away
Archie Roach was one of Australia’s most treasured performers. He recorded award-winning albums for nearly 30 years. From his debut album, Charcoal Lane, to his latest release, Archie Roach: The Concert Collection 2012-2018, he continued to write songs that get to the heart of what it means to be human. Archie, a singer, songwriter, and champion of First Nations, praised as a “courageous” and “powerful” truth-teller, by many political leaders and artists, left us on 30 July. The death of the much revered Gunditjmara-Bundjalung elder was confirmed by his sons Amos and Eban Roach. Goosebumps guaranteed.

The Meridian Brothers
El Grupo Renacimiento (Documentary)
and Metamorphosis
Not only musically valid but full of subtle humour, the Meridian Brothers, one of the most underrated groups of the Columbian salsa scene of the 1970s, introduce us to their world. Though they captivated the hearts of Bogotá’s youth, their provocative and danceable melodies have been largely buried since. In 2022, the Meridian Brothers teamed up with El Grupo Renacimiento to unearth their catalog and reintroduce it to the world on their new album Meridian Brothers & El Grupo Renacimiento.

Maggie Rogers
Anywhere with you
«I found a reason to wake up. Coffee in my cup. Start a new day. Wish we could do this forever and never remember mistakes that we made. I told you I loved you when we were just friends. You kept me waiting and I hated you then. Gave it a few years. You settled your debts. But I never got over the secrets I kept. It all works out in the end. Wherever you go that’s where I am.» Maggie Roberts, born 1994 as Margaret Debay Rogers in Eastland, Maryland, has a way with words, and with rock ‘n roll. She also holds a degree from Harvard Divinity School. (sgs)

Carly Rae Jepson
Beach House
How’s about a bit of fun? Summer’s coming to an end, or I’d be dancing to the cheeky sound of Carly Rae Jepson all night! Jepson is Canadian, born and raised in Mission, British Columbia, one of the 25 oldest communities in the province. Aa a child, she had a passion for musical theatre and, in 2007, finished 5th in Canadian Idol. She continued her studies at the Canadian College for the Performing Arts and moved to Vancouver after her graduation. By May 2015 she had sold 15 million records worldwide. Her 5th studio album, The Loneliest Time, from which ‘Beach House’ is outsourced, is out on 21 October. (sgs)

Miles Davis
That’s What Happened 1982-1985: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 7 [Columbia/Legacy]
All I can give you here is a teaser of a CD set yet to be released. After that, however, there’s the delightful
Tutu (That’s What Happened), performed live in Munich, in 1987. From the mid-fifties to his death in the early nineties, Miles Davis was universally recognised as one of the most innovative musicians working in Jazz. He was also one of the most popular with his albums regularly breaking into the pop charts and he picked up a total of eight Grammy Awards. He also launched the careers of many jazz musicians including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Billy Cobham, John McLaughlin and many more.
