We've got the post-festival blues, however there are some fantastic shows coming up soon to cure us. Check out Sway Machinery's CD release party at Great American Music Hall on March 9th.

The Sway Machinery's new album, THE HOUSE OF FRIENDLY GHOSTS, VOL1, features soaring vocals from Khaira Arby, straight from Timbuktu. In January 2010, The Sway Machinery traveled to one of the most remote music festivals in the world, the Festival in the Desert, in Mali. Their new album documents their remarkable journey and collaborations with masters of Malian music.

This Brooklyn-based all-star collective performs music inspired by ancient Jewish Cantorial music, blues, afro-beat and rock. Check out their recent showcase on NPR 'All Things Considered'. Available now at a special pre-order discount.
