Ever wondered what the employees of World Music Network do all day? Well, aside from all the hard work, World Music Network’s record collection is on high-rotation on the office stereo all day long. Ever thirsty to drink up sounds, both new and classic, we like to listen to a huge range of music from all corners of the globe. Each month we pick out our favourite albums and review them in the What We're Listening To section of this website. Check out our most recent listening recommendations and let us know what you think. We always include some interesting YouTube clips and information on where you can buy the albums too. Look, listen and enjoy!
The latest additions to the list include:
An excellent compendium of the complete works of the ultimate Afrobeat king, Fela Kuti.
Marseille-based band Watcha Clan entertained us greatly with their dance-hip hop-experimental sounds on new album Radio Babel.
A collection of Art Rosenbaum’s field recordings from the American south is a fascinating historical document of folk syles: from soulful blues and gospel to chipper bluegrass.
Mercedes Peón's album SÓS is influenced by Galician music and experimental electronic music.
Boston bluegrass band, Crooked Still’s new album, Some Strange Country features layers of acoustic string instruments that mould an appropriately Appalachian soundscape.
