More than a year after the concept album And so sing the black birds, Ending Satellites is coming back with a new 3 musics elpee called The lost tapes Vol. A.
You can of course find this elpee on Free music archive.
First try of a b-sides collection, this Volume A – which contains three musics – highlights the warm melodies of a flamenca guitar, far away from the first productions of the project. You can see this elpee as a musical escape from the two first Ending Satellites albums, 7 billion passengers | Only one flight & And so sing the black birds.
You can download a deluxe edition (contains musics, pics and digital material) of The lost tapes Vol. A by clicking here.

This is the single from the new Nick Rivera's album called "Zamalek". Zamalek is an island in Cairo in the middle of the Nile. But also a neighbourhood, something in between.
This album is about the sky you can't see from this island and the things that swim in it.
Zamalek is a warm cuddle from your trusted friend, a fist in the nape from your best enemy.

This new release collects the material composed between 2012 and 2013. The songs have been strongly influenced by the musical scenario of Berlin, where I have been living in the last two years. Almost without realizing it, I have re-interpreted what I have seen and heard, while sifting in the fleeting personal feelings. The listeners of this CD will find evident quotations from other musical genres: it’s up to you to find out…But there’s more to it: my pieces of music are tales and records of emotions where reality constantly intertwines with imagination and, hopefully, each of you will see fragments and parts of your own life in them. This release is a landing place but, as such, it is also a new starting point towards something yet mysterious and, at the same time, captivating: something that is worth discovering.

Tashi Dorji conjures incredible sounds from a prepared acoustic guitar. His spirited improvisations—recorded live without any loops or effects—evoke a composite of influences from Derek Bailey to Mauritanian pulaar to the traditional music of his native Bhutan.
"Growing up in Bhutan with little access to music except random bootlegged cassettes and shortwave radio, I listened to anything i could find," Tashi Dorji writes in an email interview. He learned guitar by ear because "we didn't have music school, TV or internet back then in Bhutan, so we had to use a lot of imagination and improvise what we thought we heard off of a tape player."
Tashi Dorji arrived in Asheville, North Carolina as an international student in 2000. He quickly fell in with the vibrant punk rock community, which flowed into free jazz, noise, experimental and other avant garde music. The Appalachian mountain town has become a real hub for experimental music thanks to longstanding acts like Ahleuchatistas, resources like Asheville FM, the shop Harvest Records, tape distributor Tomentosa, and labels like Bathetic and Headway Recordings.
Guitar Improvisations, released on cassette by Headway last year, sold out quickly but is available to download from the FMA along with his release sêp. This week, the label unveiled Tashi Dorji's self-titled follow-up, and it's streaming after the jump. Tashi Dorji also has a forthcoming release on Turned Word Records out of Belfast ME, and much more on his bandcamp.
Bhutanese traditional music is an oral tradition consisting of many marginal, isolated communities across the country, and much has yet to be documented. But for those interested in hearing some examples, Tashi Dorji points us towards a nascent archive hosted by the Bhutan Broadcasting Service.
