Federico Albanese: capturing the fleeting majesty of magic hour “There is a particular moment when opposites are very close, almost touching one another. When there is still light but not quite darkness. A world between, where all things are uncertain, vague, floating into shade.” For those lucky enough to capture the gradual transition between day and night, it always instills this wondrous sense of bewilderment. For Italian composer Federico Albanese's second album The Blue Hour, twilight is the visual catalyst for his airy and cinematic piano-based pieces, which are graced with gentle electronic textures and icy atmospherics. Or, as Drowned in Sound simply put it: “One of the most hauntingly beautiful record you’ll ever hear.” Federico Albanese plays Le Guess Who? 2016 on Saturday, 12 November. Watch him perform 'Stellify' live from The Blue Hour:
Why you should know mystical jazz singer Patty Waters, according to Tom Carter: "'Patty Waters Sings' is a flaming beacon at the pinnacle of the ESP-Disk' woodpile. On it, Waters manifests the formidable triad of her talents: her melancholy songs (a neglected yet astonishing page in the American songbook); her chilling whispered delivery; the harrowing blast of her full-throated cry (an aspect fully developed in the interstellar spaces of her other ESP LP, 'College Tour'). Her poise and mystery and voice, so well-displayed on these and later recordings, remains undiminished -- and will no doubt rearrange the ears on your head." Patty Waters will give a very rare performance as part of our 10th Anniversary Edition on Sunday, 13 November. Tom Carter performs on Thursday, 10 November, as part of the program curated by Wilco.

Hip hop/jazz hybrid Digable Planets: finally realigning after 20+ years. In the 90s, Digable Planets sampled past visionaries like Art Blakey and Curtis Mayfield to create a unique and futuristic hybrid of jazz and hip hop, resulting in half a million record sales and a Grammy Award. The NY-based trio unshackled hip hop from its repetition-based framework on debut ‘Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time And Space)’. Then on follow-up ‘Blowout Comb’, they employed jazz instrumentation to hip hop’s modernistic inner-city vigor. Fast-forward twenty years, and nobody came remotely close to sounding like Digable Planets, barring founder Ishmael Butler’s equally brilliant Shabazz Palaces, that is. Watch a video portrait of Digable Planets on their long-awaited reunion, via Vibe (magazine): The band will play an exclusive Dutch show at our 10th Anniversary Edition, on Saturday, 12 November.

Why you should know mystical jazz singer Patty Waters, and what she means to Circuit des Yeux's Haley Fohr: "She is a high flying bird, and the first I ever heard, that could conjure a full spectrum of emotion through voice. Her ability to remain fragile and open, exploratory, inviting, free, (but not flashy) makes her one of the most accomplished vocalists of our time. I wish that more people were privy to her talent. I love the record "College Tour", where I feel her spirit floats the most, but recommend "Patty Sings" for those unfamiliar. She invites you in like a full moon on a hot summer's night on side A, then successfully sends you into a mind trip on "Black is the Color". She is truly a one of a kind musician and I just can't wait to see her live." Patty Waters will give a very rare performance as part of our 10th Anniversary Edition on Sunday, 13 November. Haley Fohr will perform as Circuit des Yeux as well as with her new project, Jackie Lynn. Both performances are part of the program curated by Julia Holter, on Saturday, 12 November.

Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou: otherworldly piano improvisations from Ethiopia, performed by Maya Dunietz as part of Julia Holter's curated program After spending three years of political imprisonment in Italy, Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou (1923) began studying violin in Egypt. Sadly, a promising musical career was cut short when emperor Haile Selassie denied her from leaving Ethiopia. She spent the following decades reclusively in a monastery, sporadically recording for her own pleasure: an otherworldly form of improvisation rooted in her love for classical music. After Selassie's reign, and the death of her mother, she left Ethiopia for Jerusalem (where she now lives on Ethiopia Street). Here, she was discovered by Dunietz, who became the primary catalyst for Tsegué-Maryam's overdue success. Listen to her solo piano pieces: stream Ethiopiques Vol. 21 in full:
