Barnes enlisted an all-star cast of his notable friends, all musicians sensitive to a comedian’s aesthetics: Jimmy Vivino (Conan OBrien show) on guitar, Will Lee (David Letterman’s CBS Orchestra) on bass, Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live) on drums, Bette Sussman (Bette Midler’s musical director) on piano, and Steve Guyger (Jimmy Rogers Blues Band) on harmonica.
Liad Abraham is an Israeli acoustic guitarist and musician. For the last few months he has formed a duo with the very talented violinist/singer Ariella Zeitlin. They have just released a beautiful Game of Thrones medley for guitar, violin and looper, and it is unlike anything you have ever heard.
39 year old Liad Abraham was born in Israel and has studied guitar from the age of 14. He studied in Jerusalem's music academy concentrating on classical guitar and has been teaching and playing ever since, only on steel string and nylon string acoustic guitars ("no electric ones for me" he says!).
Ariella Zeitlin was born in Baltimore and studied violin from the age of seven. She moved to Israel at 17 and studied at the same music academy as Liad a few years after he originally did. She also participated in the last season of The Voice Israel.
They have been working together for 4 months, building a beautiful set list and touring the country with them. They play a mixture of Irish music, folk songs, virtuosic arrangements from film music, and of course some original compositions.

Lee describes “So Free” as sticking to her “rootsy soul sound,” implementing R&B elements into an acoustic instrumental. “I wrote ‘So Free’ at a time in my life where I was being so weighed down and consumed by worrying about what everyone else thought about me, and focusing on what others thought I should be doing with my life instead of listening to what my heart was directing me to do,” says Lee. ”’So Free’ is my anthem of that moment I decided to no longer live with the burden and to let go and be free of caring about all the petty bullshit that ultimately doesn’t matter in this life.”

Billy Bragg’s albums have always contained material with the strong political slant of classic folksingers in the Woody Guthrie/Bob Dylan mold. This release shows him at his most muckrakingly fervent and angry. Only “The Marching Song of the Covert Battalions” has music actually composed by Bragg — and that selection contains a lengthy quote of the tune “When Johnny Come Marching Home.” The rest are covers of songs (some of them pre-20th century) that either overtly or covertly deal with revolution, radical politics, or pacifist sentiments. The arrangements are a real departure for Bragg, and are most unusual and effective. “I Dreamed I Saw Phil Ochs Last Night” and “Nicaragua Nicaraguita” are for unaccompanied voice. “Marching Song of the Covert Battalions” features prominent clarinet and recorder passages supported by organ, accordion, and revival-meeting bass drum/cymbals combination. “Red Flag” is an energetic reel set sparsely for voice, whistles, percussion, and minimal guitar. The title track is given a grand, traditional, all-stops-out treatment, arranged for chorus, large brass ensemble, and percussion. The album’s best selection, “My Youngest Son Came Home Today,” is a dirgelike antiwar number that is very moving and effective. This album is a committed, deeply felt manifesto well worth a listen. Original pressings of this record came with a wide-ranging and enjoyable promotional 45 containing selections by Bragg, Clea & McLeod, Caroline Trettine, and the Young Fresh Fellows.

Jeff Buckley was a mess of contradictions: a perfectionist who believed in spontaneity, a man who was at once humble and vain, a musician who shunned his father’s tumultuous legacy while creating one of his own. These are some of the reasons why he took his time writing and recording the material for his second album, laboring over many songs for months at a time. Given such painstaking methods, it shouldn’t have been a surprise that recording was an equally fastidious process. Buckley recorded enough material for an album with producer Tom Verlaine, but deciding that the results weren’t quite right, he scrapped them and moved to Memphis to record the album again. He reworked a few songs as home demos as he prepared to cut the album, but it was never made — Buckley died in a tragic drowning accident before entering the studio. As a way to enlarge his legacy, his mother and record label rounded up the majority of the existing unreleased recordings, releasing them as the double-disc set Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk. Excepting a few awkward moments and middle-eights, it’s hard to see why Buckley rejected the Verlaine productions that make up disc one. The material isn’t necessarily a progression from Grace; it’s more like a stripped-down, edgier take on the sweeping, jazz-tinged goth folk-rock that made the first album so distinctive. Neither the nearly finished first disc nor the homemade demos and re-recordings on the second disc offer any revelations, but that’s not necessarily a disappointment. Sketches adds several wonderful songs to his catalog, offering further proof of his immense talent. And that, of course, is what makes the album as sad as it is exciting.

[Track recorded by Joseph Lamont and Palmer Keen, mixed and mastered by Joseph Lamont.]
Location: Tenro Hamlet, Bontolempangan Village, Buki District, Selayar
The island of Selayar is easy to miss on a map, dwarfed by the massive peninsulas of Sulawesi to the north. Zoom in, though, and you’ll see it clinging on to Sulawesi’s southern arm like a cleaner fish, a fifty-mile sliver on a perfect north-south axis. It’s an obscurity even to most Indonesians, but it’s known by folks in Sulawesi’s southern corners for its rich array of music found nowhere else.
Dide' may be Selayar's most distinctive style. At first glance, it seems like nothing special: rebana frame drums and vocals, a genre found in literally every corner of Muslim Indonesia. But this first glance is deceiving, as dide’ has a wonderfully idiosyncratic aesthetic - all it takes is one listen to know that you’re in a special new world.
Dide’ is found in only two villages in Selayar, each with its own sound. I didn’t get a chance to hear the version in Sariahan in the island’s south, so we’ll focus on the dide’ tradition of Tenro, a small village in the mountains rising out of Selayar’s west coast. Tenro is famous for closely adhering to adat, or local traditions and customs, which may explain why dide’ continues to be played there. The music is closely tied to the annual a’dingin-dingin ceremony in which villagers splash each other with water from a holy spring and bound together the results of the corn harvest. As villagers work together to tie up the corn (pemotokan), a group of men and women ritually play dide’.
In a typical dide’ performance, a group of women sit facing a group of men. Each musician is armed with a large rebana frame drum, resonant goat-skin heads stabled to a rounded body crafted from the trunk of the coconut palm (although, in a bit of island ingenuity, some of the rebana now being played are crafted from plastic buoys salvaged from the masses of detritus washed up on Selayar’s western shores!) Each group takes turns singing poetic verses called kelong in both the Selayar and Makassar languages, the uniquely strained pentatonic vocal lines spliced and supported by booming, unison hits on the rebana. As each verse comes to an end, rebana beats from both side merge in a strange kind of cross-rhythm until the next verse follows, often sung at a higher pitch than the one before.
A Chinese-manufactured plastic buoy makes for a good body for the rebana frame drum.
This call and response can go on for hours as the musicians spontaneously choose a fitting sipappa’ or verse to respond to the message sung by the other group. Dide’ musicians have hundreds of these sipappa’ memorized, but the order in which they are sung is improvised in the moment: upon hearing a particular sipappa’, one side will quickly conspire and choose an appropriate verse in response, and so on.
These verses are known for their very specific form (four lines each, the first three with eight syllables, the last with five) and their poetic filling, full of pathos. One example goes: “I’ve wanted to leave this world behind/ but I found nobody to follow me/ no one to notice my departure.” Another: “If there’s no floating log to clutch in the middle of the sea/ I will rescue you/ As this world is sinking.”
Dide’ is considered one of the most asli or original of Selayar artforms, dating back at least to the Dutch colonial era, when Bugis sailing ships would pass by Selayar on the way from South Sulawesi to the Spice Islands of Maluku in the east. Starting in the 1970’s, though, it was nearly forgotten, outshined by the similar but flashier style called batti’-batti’. Today, batti’-batti’ still competes with dangdut and Western pop for the ears of Selayar people, but dide’ has been almost completely forgotten, dragged out only for the annual corn harvest and occasionally played for regional government festivals.
The future of this music, I’m afraid to say, is looking bleak. “Kids these days don’t want to learn dide’,” lamented one Tenro villager. “They think it’s weird. When they hear dide’, they laugh. They just want to listen to dangdut.” There’s clearly a generational gap here, a shift in culture: the younger generation often can’t even understand dide’s obtuse, literary kelong, especially when the words are stretched and strained as they are. Then there’s the issue of transmission: there are hundreds of sipappa’ to be memorized, something the older musicians managed by sheer exposure back in the days when dide’ was more commonly performed. Now, with performances rare, a new breed of musicians would have to sit down and deliberately memorize a book full of verses. Who’s got time for that?
The key, folks insist, is in government support. In these times of decentralized government, even remote regencies have generous budgets with which to support the arts. Funding always ends up going to more cosmopolitan sanggars (“arts groups”) in Selayar’s biggest town, Benteng. Dide’s torchbearers are just ordinary folk, not professional musicians or even hobbyists, and they admit being out of their element when it comes to dealing with the government and all the bureaucracy that entails. Still, they complain, the Selayar government is busy promoting the region’s gorgeous white sand beaches and tropical reefs while ignoring the cultural riches of Selayar’s interior. Something’s got to change, they say, or within a generation this incredible music will be gone.
The world of Selayar is turned upside down. Almost the entire island lives off of a single road spanning the north-south stretch of its western coast; when locals are following the coast south, they say they’re “going up,” and heading north is “going down.” Take the ferry north to “mainland” Sulawesi and you’re “descending” or “getting off.”
It was in this topsy-turvy world that we drove “down” from Benteng, Selayar’s only proper town, following the coast to Tenro in the north. After a serendipitous connection with local government employees in town, my friends Jo, Logan, and I had been offered a ride in a comfy government SUV, gliding our way in air-conditioned bliss along the coastal road. As we descended, so to speak, we took in the view: wooden stilted houses and forest on the right, trash-strewn beach on the left. Selayar’s trying to become a new beach destination, but in one way it’s got its peculiar geography working against it: the island slices right through the strong ocean currents of the Flores Sea, picking up flotsam and jetsam like a sieve. Six months out of the year, each coastline gets bombarded with micro-plastics, Indomie packages, and the detritus of a thousand passing ships.
To get to Tenro, we had to turn inland from this coastal dump and climb briefly up Selayar’s mountainous spine. The village was like many others in this part of Indonesia: lines of delapidated but regal stilted houses, goats, palm trees, and corn. Families gathered in the cool shade beneath their houses, watching this motley crew roll up in what may have been the first car of the day.
We quickly found ourselves in a living room strewn with rebana frame drums; family portraits and a kitschy framed poster of galloping horses hung over rarely used sofas. The dide’ gang was already waiting for us: the men, Sahibo’ and Sattu, were decked out in their most formal sarongs and peci caps; the women, Marwani, Mariati, Sitti Ati, and Sulaira, were looking equally smart in their lacey kebaya blouses, flowery sarongs, and multicolored jilbab headscarves.
Maybe they’d been waiting for hours, or maybe it was the presence of authoritative government personnel, but for whatever reason we made record time between initial smiley handshakes and music filling the room (not that I’m in any hurry!). Despite the abundance of sofas, we set up on the floor, the four women and their rebana on one side of the room, the male duo not far away on the other. With a few strong hits to the goatskin to clear the air, we were ready to go.
The men began with a whisper. I later learned they were choosing the first verse to sing, with Pak Sahibo’ whispering a potential first line and Pak Sattu nodding in recognition. The verse’s meaning was lost on me until later translation, but the sound of their voices hit hard, the sound rich and smokey. “Excuse me, ladies and gentlemen,” they sang, “Excuse me, lords and noblemen/ If there’s any wrong in our song/ Please forgive us.”
They’d clearly chosen a verse suited for greeting distinguished guests, far more distinguished than the three beardy foreigners sitting in this living room. The tone had been set, though, and the women responded with their own verse after some quick whispering of their own: “Because we’re exchanging verses/A feeling of mutual respect/ Will bring good for you/ And for us.”
That’s my own poor translation, based on my friend Ibu Andi’s own translation from the Selayar language into Indonesian - the original, Bu Andi assured me, was rich in nuance and metaphor. The mutualism of the lyrics was a reflection on the community spirit of the harvest ceremony in which dide’ is usually performed: dide’ benefits us all, it says, and brings us together, just as we work together to gather this year’s corn.
While most of the Selayar language words had washed over me as pure sound, one word had stood out in each verse: dide’. These two syllables were acting as a filler, stretching the syllable count to accommodate the rigid kelong verse form. In another way, though, the musicians were subtly repping the style like a name-dropping rapper. It’s as if they were saying: This is dide’, and don’t you forget it!
Huge thanks to Mawank and Pak Ben for hooking us up that day, and to Ibu Andi for the Indonesian translation and invaluable cultural insight. Also to Jo for his usual mixing mastery, and Logan for his awkward Indonesian jokes that I got to laugh at again as I played back the interviews for this session.

Cale Tyson spent his salad days in Nashville among the honky-tonks and bars of lower Broadway and East Nashville, playing countless late-night gigs where he served up a cocktail of country covers and originals steeped in the stylings of the old masters.
But Tyson was never a country boy at heart despite his Texas pedigree. He fell in love with country music during his years at Belmont University, and learned to communicate three chords and the truth from his own pen with an adroit hand.
Having grown up on punk, metal and Bright Eyes, Tyson soon felt the urge to expand his palette beyond country. Without fully abandoning the high lonesome sound he spent years honing, he found his way inching toward a more “soul” vibe, which found full expression in his forthcoming album Careless Soul, a project he recorded in Muscle Shoals that features guest turns from Swampers bassist David Hood and Nashville’s Caitlin Rose, among others.

Miranda Lee Richards’ fourth album, Existential Beast, follows 2016’s Echoes of the Dreamtime by just a year, a quick turnaround for a songwriter who’s gone several years between records in the past. It comes with a lusher presentation, too, edging deeper into psychedelic folk-rock while hanging onto a country influence and her distinctly Laurel Canyon-esque sound. It’s also, at least in part, a protest album, with songs motivated by the 2016 U.S. presidential election, an inherited necessity for activism (“Ashes and Seeds”), and the killing of Cecil the Lion (“The Wildwood”). The title track, which she has said was originally inspired by watching a biopic about Nelson Mandela, gets at the larger question of how to arrive at peace. A slow-drifting rumination, it has organ,gently twangy guitar, piano, and spare drums under Richards’ wispy vocal line. It picks up fuzzier guitar and, later, saxophone in the choruses but never climbs out of hazy contemplation (“And why must there be a wrong before right?/And why must it take so many lives?”). Songs like the ultra-trippy “Golden Gate” and bucolic “Oh Raven” are more concerned with self-improvement, such as learning to trust instincts. The closer, “Another World,” though, returns to protest in an epic way; it’s a 12-minute acoustic folk song that pays tribute to her home state of California while addressing a myriad of American political issues with all of the peace-loving presence of a Judy Collins or Joan Baez.
