Good music often comes from the most unlikely placeshellip; ALARM 35presents a plethora of unique voices from todayrs"s thriving musical underground, whether they come from a faraway land or just up the street.A group of disabled musicians from the Congo empowers the underdogs of its community. On the peninsula of Portland, Maine, a folk collective concocts warm creations around the kitchen table while a neighboring metal band looks to the surrounding ocean for the depths and caverns of its colossal sound. A helmet-clad, guitar-slinging Arizona ex-pat discusses his world travels from his current home in Australia. A number of equally heavy but distinctly different bands rise out of small towns across the American south. Music can come from places so deep within that the songs and the emotions they provoke seem to appear out of thin air. A talented rock band from the sprawling metropolis of New York City is so insular that it is genuinely surprised that people like its records. A Swedish songstressrs" dark mystique conceals gentle musings about her children, while in a desert across the globe, a lonely songwriter channels his sense of isolation into electronic pop. In the information age, the floodgates known to previous generations have been blown up, bridging music and art across time, place, and genre like never before, giving music lovers new sounds such as British dub fused with ancient Chinese instrumentation, San Francisco post-punk with Indonesian percussion, and a cross-hemispherical dance collaboration that defies definition.
