[tweetmeme] [fbshare type=”button”] A couple of days ago we reviewed TELESMA, now we’ve found Anchorage Alaska, another band who make music you can see.
Now bear in mind I said you music you can see…and not watch! Watchable music is that horrible rap genre with lots of tits, bums, chains and flashy cars. See-able music is the type that conjures up and infinite amount of colorful imagery in your mind while listening.
Most people would call the music that Anchorage Alaska make, world music, because of it’s widespread roots and global extraction. I simply categorize it as cinematic. Music you can see. Just like a movie, only there’s no Spielberg or Ridley Scott to conjure up the magic. These tasks are left to Kristy Mcduff on vocals, Graham Fielden on bass, Calum Cameron on drums and percussion, Danny McCafferty uillean pipes and low whistle and Paul Taylor on piano and guitar.
Anchorage Alaska are solid craftsmen, they never push their creativity over the top, with exhausting layers of meaningless music and stretched out instrumental solos. Everything is neatly and tightly packaged where you expect it to be, never too little, never too much…just the right amount to keep you coming back for more. Exactly like a Spielberg movie!
