Xavier Rudd is an Australian folk artist. He plays many instruments, and he shines on the Didgeridoo. Here is a live concert from 2004, a perfect showcase of Xavier’s talent. My particular favorite is his song Let Me Be, a tune I’ve had stuck in my head for years now.

Rho – October Turncoat
A nice little EP that sounds reminiscent of Boards Of Canada or Orange Crush. Mellow electronica grooves with acoustic guitars and chilled, downtempo beats. A nice, relaxing EP.
In Chains – Dead Heart Bloom
I guess you would call this folk, but it has a dreamy, ethereal quality about it that transcends genres. It’s just good, relaxing music that will make you fell a bit better about the world. The third track, Halfway Gone, really reminds me of a song by the Beatles, but I can’t put my finger on which song. They’ve somehow invented what can only be called ‘ambient funk’. At any rate, all five tracks on the EP rock. This is definitely one of the best finds so far this year (even though we’re only one month in).
