Listen Here! Arkansas Artist Offers ‘Work Of Heart’
“Bonny Light Horseman”
Bonny Light Horseman
Bonny Light Horseman — the trio of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson (Fruit Bats) and Josh Kaufman (Muzz, Craig Finn, The National) — are celebrating their two Grammy Award nominations for their self-titled debut album, released Jan. 24. Among myriad proclamations placing “Bonny Light Horseman” on “Best Albums of 2020” lists, the debut garnered Grammy nominations for Best Folk Album and Best American Roots Performance for single “Deep In Love.”
Produced by Kaufman, “Bonny Light Horseman” finds the group re-imagining traditional songs and co-writing new ones based loosely on specific sources. From Wisconsin festival fields and a German art hub to a snowy upstate studio and everywhere in between, the astral folk outfit mixes the ancient, mystical medium of transatlantic traditional folk music with a contemporary, collective brush. The resulting album, “Bonny Light Horseman,” is an elusive kind of sonic event: a bottled blend of lightning and synergy that will excite fans of multiple genres, eras and ages.
“Neighborhood Love Dealer”
Arkansas hip-hop artist Jeremiah Pickett, otherwise known as Baang, is an artist who finds value in creating work that challenges thought. His sound reflects the perfect fusion of poetic storytelling over vibey instrumentation. “Baang is my nickname, it’s who I am,” he explains. “It’s actually an acronym for Believe Aspire Achieve Now Go.”
On Nov. 2, Baang released his official sophomore album, “Neighborhood Love Dealer,” which has been called “a work of heart.” On this project, Baang demonstrates growth — both personally and musically. “This year has been a vulnerable time for many of us. We can choose to let fear drive us or we can find peace in the midst of chaos,” Baang offers. “‘Neighborhood Love Dealer’ is an attempt to promote self love, honesty, connection, and openness.
“May everything I create inspire and encourage others to be and love their full self.”
Oslo four-piece Das Body, fronted by the eccentric Ellie Linden, released their debut album “Peregrine” on Nov. 20. The album’s inspiration comes from the ancient meaning of the word itself — the sensation of feeling alien and foreign — and does not shy away from dealing with the messy complexities hidden within the ties we share with other people. “Peregrine” also inherits its more literal inspiration from a peregrine falcon the band discovered flying around their studio in Økern, Norway while writing the album.
Das Body saunter within an immutable space that isn’t quite hope and isn’t quite nothingness, where feeling alien is the comfortable norm even if the cause isn’t quite clear. The Norwegian quartet’s world filters through a handful of genre touchpoints, each unraveling in a different direction: woozy electronics, soulful R&B, toothy post-punk, pop swagger. Confident uncertainty runs throughout their debut album, showcasing their chaotic unity and sublime disarray. Their lyrics keep a constant eye out for an emergency exit flickering somewhere in the distance: a way out of a relationship, your head, your own mortality.
The Fader calls the debut “chic neo noir dance party for one.”
Grammy Award-winning Doug Beavers is of the stature of NYC’s top jazz aficionados who fearlessly push the boundaries of the genre itself while honoring the legends that have paved the way. An ace trombonist for Eddie Palmieri’s legendary “La Perfecta” band and the current lead trombonist for the awe-inspiring Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Beavers has humbly commemorated on his solo recordings the foremost Latin jazz arrangers (“Art of the Arrangement”) as well as the unsung heroes of trombone on “Titanes del Trombón.” On his new full-length studio album, “Sol,” out Dec. 4, Beavers steps into the spotlight like never before.
Recorded in New York City during the global pandemic, Beavers sought to produce an empowering album to help rekindle connections, build community, bridge divides and return to values centered around kindness and compassion. At the heart of “Sol,” Beavers revisits the sounds of the 1970s when addictive bass riffs, sophisticated horn arrangements and African rhythms dominated the charts with funk/soul hits. It wouldn’t be a Beavers recording though if it didn’t have a powerful punch of Latin jazz and the best salsa players/singers NYC has to offer performing on the tracks. Hence, “Sol” dives deep into an organic alchemy of salsa, jazz and R&B.
With not enough live music to fill a weekly listing, this spot will be filled by news and reviews of new albums, both local and national. Send information about your new releases to Jocelyn Murphy at email@example.com.

Our view: The incredible work of United Way volunteers
First things first. While the Lubbock Area United Way’s announcement earlier this week showed the organization was short of its goal, the amount of money raised may be one of the best reflections ever of the community’s incredible generosity.
Despite persistent and unpredictable headwinds throughout the campaign, the local United Way still raised more than $5.3 million, according to a news release from the organization last Tuesday. That is worthy of celebration in and of itself, raising that kind of money during the better part of three months in a time that COVID-19 has dominated almost every aspect of life. We know people everywhere have been hit hard by the pandemic and its impact during the past nine months.
It has been and continues to be a difficult and uncertain time for many – one more reason to celebrate the work done thus far.
We congratulate Campaign Chair AJ Martinez on his outstanding leadership this year as well as his commitment to the community. Campaign chairs work tirelessly for most of a year coordinating the largest annual fundraising undertaking in the city. Martinez and literally hundreds of volunteers pulled together throughout what may have been one of the most challenging campaigns in the organization’s history that dates back almost 75 years.
They would also be the first to tell you their work is not yet done. The amount raised is impressive, but it represents just more than 93 percent of the anticipated goal for 2020. As a result, Martinez announced the campaign will continue with a final tally to be revealed at the organization’s Annual Meeting in January.
We wish to extend our thanks to everyone who has contributed to this year’s United Way campaign. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, the needs are greater and more widespread than ever before. Nonprofit organizations have found themselves challenged on two fronts. The virus has forced cancellation and postponement of numerous fundraising events while others have transitioned to a virtual format.
At the same time, many organizations, including a number beneath the United Way’s umbrella, have been stretched thin because of significantly increased demand for services. That has caused agencies well-versed in doing more with less to do even more with even less in some cases.
As a result, if you have not had a chance to contribute to this year’s campaign, it is not too late. Every contribution makes an impact, and every gift matters. Your generosity through the years has helped the local United Way’s community partners literally change the trajectory of Lubbock and the surrounding area.
“I want to recognize the faith and hope that went into every penny given so far and the hard work of all of our volunteers,” Martinez said during the organization’s recent virtual event announcing the total raised so far. “I also want to recognize the thousands of people who have given during these uncertain times. We are not through yet.”
Funds raised in the annual campaign help support 23 community partners. Many of these are familiar to the public: The Salvation Army, American Red Cross Serving the South Plains, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lubbock and YWCA of Lubbock. Others may not be as well known such as Upbring, Family Counseling Services and Communities in Schools on the South Plains.
But each of them is important, and each does vital work in the community, standing in the gaps and speaking up for people who may not be able to speak up for themselves. They are populated with staffs committed to making a difference, and just like so many others, they are working through this pandemic the best way they know how.
Donations given through the annual campaign go toward the work of United Way and those community partners who are dedicated to shining light in the darkness. Their calling includes helping people with needs such as affordable childcare, crisis situations, character development, adult literacy, job training and youth mentoring.
“We are committed to the work of our community partners and to our South Plains communities, and we’re going to keep working alongside you to reach the goal,” Martinez promised.
To support the campaign, call (806) 747-2711 or visit www.liveunitedlubbock.org for information.
The United Way’s mission is Giving People Hope. This year’s efforts affirm that important work, and we salute those – volunteers and donors alike – who have worked so hard delivering hope to those who need it most.
