    Mindless Records is pleased to continue Wingless Angels: The Podcasts, a set of programs exploring the musical and cultural world of Wingless Angels.

    Episode 3 - 'Shady Tree' and the Ancient Weave is available on iTunes.

    Written by Justin Hinds and Locksley Whitlock, "Shady Tree" is one of only a handful of original songs by Wingless Angels. The group's material is largely adapted from Christian church songs and shares some percussion traits with the Afro-Christian "revival" group tradition. But "Shady Tree," with its beautiful chant and tasty guitar and heartbeat rhythm, is the group's own creation. This program, we're looking at how "Shady Tree" is representative of the Rasta tradition of nyahbinghi music and how, through the harmonica and guitar parts, it finds its own direction.
