New releases for 12 February 2016

There are some unusual and fine releases for 12 February: Freakwater’s Scheherazade is neither folk, bluegrass or blues but somehow a mix of all three; Rokia Traoré’s beautiful Né So (‘Home’) is a great introduction to world music if you haven’t yet dipped your toe in that water; Fay Hield has produced a captivating, compelling album in Old Adam, Gazpacho’s debut gets a welcome reissue from the home of prog, Kscope; the Tedeschi Trucks Band continue to plough their singular blues/soul/rock furrow to great effect. You may not have heard of The White Buffalo, but if you watch ‘Sons of Anarchy’, you know his music! Vince Gill also brings us the magnificently titled Down to My Last Bad Habit. Release of the week is Dying Surfer Meets His Maker by All Them Witches, which builds and builds into I don’t know what, except that I love it!
