Xylouris White - Daphne

Xylouris White - Daphne
A passion for exploration comes naturally to Xylouris White, the ruggedly visionary duo formed of Cretan lute player George Xylouris and Australian drummer Jim White (The Dirty Three).

For their debut album, 2014’s 'Goats', Xylouris White compared themselves to the titular animals, wandering fearlessly through rough-hewn terrain. Two years later, they showed how far their horizons could reach on 2016’s majestically expansive 'Black Peak'.

The duo’s exploratory instincts drive them further onwards still on their third album, 'Mother', released 19th January, and named to denote “new life”. As Xylouris puts it, “Mother is the extension of Goats and Black Peak. Three things, all part of a whole. Goats are mothers, Zeus was raised on Amaltheia’s milk, Black Peak is Mother Earth… Mother Earth is the mother of everything.”

Produced by Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, the album is an extraordinary accomplishment from two supremely seasoned players who’ve kept a close kinship with the richly, rewardingly inquisitive instincts of their youth. “It’s the natural maturity of fruits as they ripen. As fruit matures by the rhythm of nature, so the music grows at its own pace. So, here are two maturing fruits giving the taste of their present maturity– and they’re still children.”

About this track...

A moody, hypnotic meditation that gradually builds to a thunderous climax. The latest offering from the collaborative duo of George Xylouris, a virtuoso lute player and singer from the Greek isle of Crete, and Jim White, drummer of the Australian instrumental trio the Dirty Three. It's transportive, psychedelic folk music.
