Ditching Sony: a 28-day program, part three

I’ll start off by saying that Sony is finally falling in and doing what they’re supposed to. However, if the experience has left a bad taste in your mouth, feel free to boycott Sony all you want. In fact, you’re even free to boycott the Big Four in the world music market.

To aid you in this task, I’ve decided to recommend a different completely independent artist every week for a month. Last week it was Nickel Creek, prior to that it was Laura Love.

This week, it’s The Revolutionary Snake Ensemble. Drawing on a heavy New Orleans second-line influence, they stir together the backbeat of funk with distinctly Latin-flavored horns. It’s an amalgamation of genres, but the music is always clear and precise. If you dig it, check them out.
