Wildlight’s The Tide acoustic redux invokes a sound and era that can be overlooked within our technologically-fueled society. The delicate performances harken back to a period and lifestyle rooted in the past; yet at once paving a path back toward lost innocence and social responsibility. This album serves as reminder that we can exist in that paradigm today. Reimagining the tunes from their stimulating sophomore opus as a stirring blend of global instrumentation, folk sensibilities, and indigenous influence, Ayla Nereo and David Sugalski (The Polish Ambassador) have crafted a statement bathing in sonic serenity.Listen to the album below.In tandem with the artists’ reverence, The Tide places a glistening spotlight on the earth, community, gratitude, healing and romance. Sugalski enlists a vibrant team of collaborators to facilitate an energetic transformation; The Tide’s formerly meditative dance music evolves elegantly into a softer, medicinal archetype. The creative ingenuity of lead producer Ryan Herr is a revelation. Sugalski’s compadre courts a courageous cavalcade, among them Tyson Leonard and Jesse Hendrix. The dexterous multi-instrumentalists employ a myriad of organic sounds to soothe and serenade with savoir-faire: banjo, violin, accordion, saxophone, flute, toy piano, melodica, duduk, mandolin, djembe, didgeridoo, kalimba, acoustic guitar and upright bass. These assembled artisans in antiquity deliver the listener to an intersection of love, hope, and awareness.Ayla Nereo’s multi-faceted melodies give rise to Wildlight’s impassioned vision and focused mission, the promise of our better tomorrow. From start to finish, Nereo’s femininity is found summoning the intrinsic power of her expressive voice. “Rain” and “From the Ground Up” feature poignant pleas in siren song: her angelic vocal tones calling to the spirits, these are soundtracks to the garden we have dreamt. On “The Crucible,” Nereo unveils a resolute rap and hauntingly gorgeous refrain, at once emotive and inspiring.”Ours to Give” is a soothing, warm lament on the benevolence within us all. “Holy Dust” features her aching, arching soprano, while “Grace, Fully” finds Nereo’s layered vocals basking in a bed of blissful banjo and lulling violin.Wildlight has created an organic, chilled vibe in rewiring their own previous brilliance. Filled with mystifying traditional music, this testimonial transmits a clear and focused intention; to empower community, heal wounds, celebrate love, and awaken the heroic human spirit. Full of evergreen hymns tuned to the magic of mother nature, The Tide (original) is revival strong enough to move mountains. Stripped of bass and bombast, this riveting reprise stays sublime in shadowed valleys.

“I am happy with that part of our game, we are creating chances, we are playing well,” he said. “The only thing I would like the team to do more is shoot. Sometimes we are waiting too long in clear-cut situations which is not always necessary. Sometimes you need to try your luck. “It’s sometimes difficult to create the chances which will put you one-on-one against the goalkeeper, and we have the players who are very dangerous when they shoot in training from 20 or 25 yards. That’s what I’d like to see us do more.” While Jose Mourinho’s wilting champions will arrive in east London in a lowly 12th place, West Ham are flying high in fourth. Bilic has so far tried to play down expectations at the club but, ahead of the cross-London clash, even the laid-back Croat admitted things are looking good so far. “I don’t know how long we can stay there, we’re going to try to continue to play good, or better, and with a little bit of luck and if we stay away from injuries we have a chance in every game,” he added. “Where that will bring us in a couple of months, or at the end, I don’t know. “We are realistically optimistic. We are playing good; on one hand we can improve in all things but on the other we know this is the Premier League and every game is extremely difficult.” Press Association The Hammers have rattled in 20 goals already this term – only Manchester City have more – with Diafra Sakho, Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and even right-back Carl Jenkinson chipping in. But ahead of Saturday’s visit of the Blues, Upton Park boss Bilic said he wants his sharp shooters to take aim even more often, just like they do in training. Chelsea are finally showing signs of life, having beaten Aston Villa last weekend before a battling goalless Champions League draw at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday. “They played good game in Kiev, they were very solid, like the old Chelsea from last year,” said Bilic. “I watched the game, and I wasn’t happy after the game because they looked really good as a team; they were sharp, with great individuals. “Some of the performances from players who didn’t play that good recently, they played really good. And they are Chelsea!” West Ham may be the Premier League’s second-highest scorers but Slaven Bilic wants them to adopt a shoot-on-sight policy – starting against Chelsea.
