Wildlight Goes All-Acoustic In Reworking Of ‘The Tide’ Album [Review/Full Stream]

first_imgWildlight’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.last_img read more

Joshua against Wilder remains a key clash at heavyweight, says Froch

first_img Loading… Anthony Joshua against Deontay Wilder remains a key fight in the debate about the world’s best heavyweight and Oleksandr Usyk has more to prove, says Sky Sports expert Carl Froch. He boxed that journeyman in his first fight in the division and I wasn’t really impressed. You’ve got to have Andy Ruiz Jr in the top five because he firstly defeated AJ before losing to him. His only previous defeat was against Joseph Parker on points. You cannot say Daniel Dubois yet and I’ve got my reservations about Oleksandr Usyk, just purely because he’s not a natural heavyweight and he’s not beaten any of the big names. He boxed that journeyman in his first fight in the division and I wasn’t really impressed. He did what he needed to do, but his opponent was hapless. Fury is just in front of Joshua in the top spot. Part of my reasoning for this is because he was a lineal champion, beating Wladimir Klitschko a few years ago to become champion and never lost the titles in the ring. He came back when everybody thought he couldn’t beat Wilder and I thought he won the first fight, even though he got dropped. The rematch was so one-sided, so conclusive, and I just think you’ve got to put him at No 1, above AJ. Read Also:Whyte accuses Joshua of ‘pretending’ to want rematch It’s him and AJ, one and two, and if you think to yourself, logically who wins between AJ and Fury? I think most people, the general consensus would be that Fury wins that one, but the only way to end any debate would be to see them share the ring. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 It would be good to see Joshua fight Wilder, that remains a decent match-up, even though Wilder was outclassed by Tyson Fury. I still want to see that fight. It would be a measuring stick to see where Joshua is – and it would be a good test to show that he can beat Wilder as well. A win for Joshua over Wilder builds the Fury fight even bigger. At the moment, Fury seems to be a top dog after taking the WBC title from Wilder. They are going to meet again in a third fight and both will remain big names afterward, regardless of the result. Why not put AJ against Wilder at some stage and really show that Joshua means business. There’s a good crop of heavyweights at the very top. You might also see Dillian Whyte taking on Wilder and then he could target the Anthony Joshua-Tyson Fury winner. We need to see Whyte back at his best because he wasn’t in peak condition for his win over Mariusz Wach in December. We’ve seen him looking good beforehand, particularly against Oscar Rivas, I was impressed with that, and his victory over Joseph Parker. Whyte is definitely in the mix, but he just needs a really big fight. He’s beaten everyone they’ve stuck in front of him, apart from AJ, but that was early on, so you’ve got to put Dillian up there.
