There are a whole lot of reasons why it’s cool to work for Elephant Journal. One of them is the opportunity to be exposed to music I might not have otherwise come across. Little Wolf Band’s Prayer to the Mystery is one example.
Fusing Native American rhythms and sounds with modern beats and instrumentation, this album nicely bridges the gap between traditional and modern. I’ve actually had a really hard time not listening to this disc; the music is complex and varied without being overwhelming or muddled, and I find myself hearing something new every time I listen to it. The tracks are a beautiful combination of haunting and soothing, and gives new definition to the phrase “ambient music.” Reminiscent of the work of Robbie Robertson, this is a cd worth every penny you’ll invest in buying it or downloading it from the New Earth Records website. New Earth Records prints all of its cd materials on recycled paper using vegetable based inks, and their Eco-Audits from Save-A-Tree Paper can be found on their website.
