Vula Viel - Do Nor Be Afraid (VVCD1950 and VVLP1950)
Forward thinking UK trio Vula Viel present their sophomore album, continuing their unique musical journey centred around Bex Burch's Gyil (Ghanaian xylophone). Described as 'Ghanaian minimalism', with the ability to blur the lines between atmospheres, Vula Viel's sound may nod to Steve Reichian jazz but also has echoes of Bill Laswell and Arthur Russell. Bassist Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland, Melt Yourself Down, Rokia Traore) and drummer Jim Hart (Cloudmakers, Ralph Alessi, Electric Biddle) introduce a rough, post-punk edge to the band's aural palette.,
