Bob Dylan
Modern Times
Ain't Talkin'

Artist website: Bob Dylan
"Modern Times" is Bob Dylan's first all-original album in five years. Dylan sings the blues with style, in "Thunder on the Mountain." He embodies the mature romantic crooner on "Someday Baby." His anthem to the workingman hits home in today's economy. Sounds a warning of eminent tragedy with, "The Levee's Gonna Break." but it is the style and context of "Ain't Talkin'" that fast forwards listeners from the 60's to the present day.

Banco de Gaia
Farewell Ferengistan
White Man's Burden
notes from Toby Marks, under the pseudonym Banco de Gaia, has spent most of his career focusing on issues that he finds bewildering by expressing his thoughts and observations through music. He wrote his critically acclaimed 1995 album Last Train To Lhasa to highlight the plight of the Tibetan people and successfully mixed electronica with a braver vision. Farewell Ferengistan captures the spirit and mood of Last Train To Lhasa but this time Banco de Gaia's concerns are much closer to home: what are we doing to ourselves? Where is our materialism taking us, would it not be wise to consider our position?
