Chicken on a Raft
Which Side Are You On? [MP3]
     


I Got Your Ice Cold Nugrape [MP3]
     


“Chicken on a Raft is Thom Moore (Moore Brothers, Nedelle and Thom) and Tommy Carns (Billy Talbott Band). Sharing a mutual love for traditional folk music, the duo began playing music in the tradition of the Watersons, reviving folk music culled from wax cylinders and the Library of Congress. Their debut album is a collection of American Traditionals, ballads, and popular tunes that have passed down from generation to generation, each iteration providing it’s own input to the meaning of a lyric and melody. They tell stories of loves lost, political intrigue, and lingering mysteries that are as true and applicable today as when first sung by a long forgotten minstrel. ”—Antenna Farm Records

Billy Martin and John Medeski
Crustaceatron [MP3] from Mago
     


Organist John Medeski and drummer Billy Martin celebrate almost two decades since their first musical meeting (a duet session at Martin’s Brooklyn loft back in 1989). Finally, they made the record they vowed to do before their popular band, Medeski Martin and Wood, kept them so busy. The first and last tracks are expansive free-flowing spontaneous compositions they do with such grace and passion, but the majority of the tracks are filled with head-nodding booty-shaking grooves that only they could have created.
