Whale Dance on Rocketpoll

For a taste of new age/easy listening/fantasy, tune in to Rocketpoll and check out "Whale Dance" by Tanzu. A judicious use of synths, and surprisingly no guitar, takes you on a deep sea journey with these giant titans. Check it out on Rocketpoll.

Tanzu enters the Forbidden Forest

Artist Tanzu's latest post on Rocketpoll is "Forbidden Forest," featuring a liquid guitar track over shummering Rhodes piano; Tanzu's signature. What's remarkable about the track is the rich fat and slightly saturated tone of the guitar, run through a set of vintage tubes. Check it out on Rocketpoll.

Ratcliff Bailey Rises "Above the City"

The great rock duo Ratcliff Bailey shines once again on Rocketpoll with one of its most contemplative and romantic offerings so far, "Above the City." The sparkling guitar riffs are reminiscent of early Byrds, and R_B's signature vocals conjure up Tom Waits. A very sweet guitar solo resurrects the great George Harrison. Bravo, guys! Check it out on Rocketpoll.
