AUTORRETRATO MUSICAL


Pussy Galore me ha pasado otro meme (bonito detalle, yo tambien deseo descuartizarte y meterte en bolsitas del Caprabo. Gracias).
Esta vez se trata de hacer una especie de "autorretrato musical" contestando a un cuestionario con titulos de canciones.

¿Eres hombre o mujer?
Soy un hombre enfermo (Del Tonos)

¿Como se sienten las personas cerca de ti?

azul (Muchachito)

¿Cómo te sientes?

Idiota (Los Ronaldos)

¿Cómo describirías tu anterior relación sentimental?

Si tu... Si yo... (Kiko Veneno)

Describe tu actual relación con tu novio/a o pretendiente:

me pasaria horas (Drexler) .

¿Dónde quisieras estar ahora?

En el bar de la esquina (A.Pla)
o
en tu casa de terrassa (La Cabra Mecánica)

¿Cómo eres respecto al amor?

Soy un truan. Soy un señor (Julio Iglesias).

¿Cómo es tu vida?
Asi (K. Johansen)

¿Qué pedirías si tuvieras sólo un deseo?

Lo que yo quiero es ponerte en cuatro (amigos Invisibles)

Escribe una cita o frase famosa:

Estoy harto (Daniel Higienico)

Ahora despídete:

Adios papa (Los Ronaldos)

Cualquier parecido con la realidad es pura councidencia

Equinnocio

Esta semana la he pasado en incógnita, todos los animales y las personas han alcanzado la categoría de signos del enigma. Desarrolle manías y obsesiones nuevas como nunca lo habia hecho. Si alguna vez me he preocupado sinceramente de cederle a la locura ha sido aqui y ahora. La inmersión en los estigmas, los objetos, las visiones... yo necesito. Necesitamos, y deseo tanto.
Si pronto pierdo la cuerda definitivamente espero quedarme sonriendo, como los borrachos o los idiotas. Y de profesíon, ladrarle a la gente en los supermercados.

Solitary Woman

I know that the account of this kind of solitary imprisonment is insufferably tedious, unless there is some cheerful or humorous incident to enliven it,—a tender gaoler, for instance, or a waggish commandant of the fortress, or a mouse to come out and play about Latude’s beard and whiskers, or a subterranean passage under the castle, dug by Trenck with his nails and a toothpick: the historian has no such enlivening incident to relate in the narrative of Amelia’s captivity. Fancy her, if you please, during this period, very sad, but always ready to smile when spoken to; in a very mean, poor, not to say vulgar position of life; singing songs, making puddings, playing cards, mending stockings, for her old father’s benefit. So, never mind, whether she be a heroine or no; or you and I, however old, scolding, and bankrupt;—may we have in our last days a kind soft shoulder on which to lean, and a gentle hand to soothe our gouty old pillows.
-William M. Thackeray, Vanity Fair, XXII. Eothen


Therefore, if taken seriously, a Bitch is a threat to the social structures which enslave women and the social values which justify keeping them in their place. She is living testimony that woman's oppression does not have to be, and as such raises doubts about the validity of the whole social system. Because she is a threat she is not taken seriously. Instead, she is dismissed as a deviant. Men create a special category for her in which she is accounted at least partially human, but not really a woman. To the extent to which they relate to her a a human being, they refuse to relate to her as a sexual being. Women are even more threatened because they cannot forget she is a woman. They are afraid they will identify with her too closely. She has a freedom and an independence which they envy and challenges them to forsake the security of their chains. Neither men nor women can face the reality of a Bitch because to do so would force them to face the corrupt reality of themselves. She is dangerous. So they dismiss her as a freak.
-Jo Freeman, The BITCH Manifesto

From Middle East With Love


So I've been invaded with some sort of Middle Eastern bug... I just can't seem to get enough of those beautiful Turkish/Arabic/overall Middle-Easter tunes. It all began thanks to my dear friend Funda from the beautiful city of Ankara, Turkey... gee thanks Funda... now I can't stop listening to the CD you sent!

Well, now that Squashed has refused to provide me with the brand new musical obsession he promised me oh so long ago, I had to go along by my little self and find some new material to obsess over. Fortunately, that obsession didn't take long to impose itself on me, Funda introduced me to Emre Aracý and Rabih Abou-Khalil, I then found out I had some Mohammed Rafi stuff lying around in my computer! And while snooping around other blogs such as Undomondo I came across 2/5bz, a real treat *wink wink*.

I'm going to have to be brutally honest here... I know almost nothing about Emre Aracý, I tried to google him, but alas... all the sources I found were in Turkish....and I do not speak Turkish. All I know is that his music is right out amazing! He works the classical ottoman music very bravely, making it sound a tad erie in some points and in others a bit magical. While listening to is CD "Boðaz Ýçi Mehtaplarý" I sit back and imagine stories of dancing sultans, love scenes under olive trees and that famous Turkish sunset over the Maidens Tower in Istanbul. Once again, thank you Funda.

Emre Aracý - Cemile Sultan
Emre Aracý - Osmanlý Saltanat Marþý

Ok, so next up is Rabih Abou-Khalil. This Libanese musician/composer takes an interesting approach on Libanese folk music, adding a jazzy twist to the concotion. Just listen!

Rabih Abou-Khalil - Snake Soup
Rabih Abou-Khalil - Bat Dance

Next, 2/5bz. These Turks put an edge on classic Turkish music and add a twist of electronic beats and bobs. I passed this song on to Funda, and she told me that they use parts of very famous classical Turkish songs, add some culture humor and mix it all up into one big song. I wish I could speak Turkish to fully get it...*sigh*.... (For better literature on these guys, visit Undomondo)

2/5bz - Karabesk

Last but certainly not least Mohammed Rafi. Rafi was probably one of the most famous playback singers in the Bollywood scene in the 70's. Rafi was a multifacetic artist, his songs ranged from religious to patriotic to just plain fun. This song is definetly on the fun side.

The devil told us to do it

Debe ser la ominosidad de los tiempos que se vienen, pero de veras que qué ganas de fiesta nos dan por estas fechas. A los niños no les queda más remedio que fumarse un camello o atragantarse de diversas bebidas para soportar el placer. Al final solo quedan sonidos, vibraciones, recuerdos, quizá algun ligue y polvo, mucho polvo. El censo "clubber" no acaba de tener el encéfalo de un Hegel pero a la prensa les da por rebuznar tanto sobre el estigma de "lo psicotrópico" que ponen a los dancers a la altura intelectual de un Chomsky. Les confirmo que el cuenco de vitriolo no es un arma precisa. Palabra de una conciencia y venas limpias, a mí solo me gusta ver como parpadean las luces.

Moviendo el tema unos grados, el día de hoy les ofrezco unas joyas de retachas de cosmic y house minimalista (no me explico como este año me han salido tantas adicciones a los sintetizadores y a los bpm) que me han hecho las últimas noches insoportablemente deliciosas. Disfruten su fin de semana.

Our sundays in bed III

It's 1:13 pm. I just woke up and I could use a warm bath and a cup of coffee (someone is taking care of this futile demands of mine while I'm writing this). In the meanwhile, I leave you with 6 artists I found this week that balance their sound between indie, pop and electronic + a song from Charlotte Gainsbourg's new record that was written by french duo, Air and a Looper remix by Pulp that's a bit old (1999) but I feel it fits well within the context of the post (check out the shoegaze influence on the intro and the unmistakeable Pulp touch on the last minute of the song). All of them come highly recommended. For more info on each one and additional mp3's please click on band link.

Kama Aina - hotaru
Andrea Liuzza - elephant serenade
Detektivbyrån - dansbanan
Artisan - I hold my breath (amether remix)
Charlotte Gainsbourg - the song that we sing
Fontan - beautiful bastards
Looper - up a tree (pulp remix)
Samuraj cities - saturday is never fair to everyone

Photo: John and Yoko. It seems they could use a warm bath too.

We share a map of the piano I

Un playlist dedicado al piano. La mayoria de las canciones le coquetean al drone, al minimalismo, a la melancolia y al constante ulular.
La ejecucion de las piezas es lenta. Esto siempre me ha parecido favorable al escuchar piano, inclusive tengo la mania de bajarle el pitch en mi estereo a los discos de Janacek, Debussy y Satie de mi padre para que las canciones se escuchen aletargadas. La razon a esta mania es que en general yo soy de reacciones lentas y asi creo se puede exagerar y apreciar mejor el peso de las teclas, la respuesta de los pedales y como el sonido se desplaza dentro de la sala donde se encuentra ubicado el instrumento.

Brian Eno & Daniel Lanois - always returning
(Apollo: atmospheres & Soundtracks, 1983)
Akira Rabelis - Gymnopedie 1
(Eisotrophobia, 2001)
Goldmund - door of our home
(Corduroy Road, 2005)
Max Richter - written in the sky
(The blue notebooks, 2004)

Lapping It Up with the War Junkies

It was just a secret gathering of the power elite.
- Jam Nation


Out of me unworthy and unknown
The vibrations of deathless music;
"With malice toward none, with charity for all."
Out of me the forgiveness of millions toward millions,
And the beneficent face of a nation
Shining with justice and truth.
I am Anne Rutledge who sleep beneath these weeds,
Beloved in life of Abraham Lincoln,
Wedded to him, not through union,
But through separation.
Bloom forever, O Republic,
From the dust of my bosom!
-Edgar Lee Masters , Anne Rutledge

Krautsüßigkeit

Teutonic sounds for a weekend that came a tad late for me. Most of the songs feature a steady motorik beat set to replicate the experience of motorway driving through the autobahn... or just bouncing on your living room alone at 4 am.

Intermission: We Bring You Indie Tracks

Recent indie artists that I like. They a mix between near dreamcore (Tomihira, Bel Auburn) to bunch of Oneida-esque sound (Supersystem, Chad VanGaalen) and A solid punk from Australia (Gallucci). Yes the mix is a bit quirky and all mixed up. But they are solid new indie artists. And this is meant to introduce new artists. Click on them, if you like it, go see their webpage. Plus, you can ask Moka for nice smooth list. She has a nice one in the making. haaa ...


"What the hell, I don't even think I wanna"

-----------Flatline-------------


Flatline is a term I have become quite attached too these last days. I began to use this word for a specific playlist I created in my ipod, in this playlist one can find mellow music that borders on mellancollic but dosen't quite get there. I guess you have to listen to the songs to truly understand what I'm trying to explain here. But anyway, I've found myself listening incessantly to Calexico and Iron & Wine lately, I believe they're perfect 'flatline' material.

The notes, rythms and textures of these two bands blend perfectly with a with a silent retrospective mood. I personally like to enjoy these songs on my own, or quietly with a special someone. I actually think they can even fit into a 'farewell summer' playlist.

Either way, I hope you enjoy this mellow playlist as much as I do.

With love,
Lotus.

Calexico/ Iron & Wine - Burn that Broken Bed (In the Reins EP, 2005)
Calexico/ Iron & Wine - Sixteen, Maybe Less (In the Reins EP, 2005)
Calexico - Sonic Wind (Hot Rail, 2001)
Iron & Wine - The Trapeze Swinger (In Good Company OST, 2005)

Bonus tracks:
Pram - The Pawnbroker
Ane Brun - This Voice
Lady & Bird - Walk Real Slow

Note: 'In the Reins' is a collaboration between Iron & Wine's Sam Beam and Calexico. The songs in this album explode with Beam's mellodious voice backed by Calexico's exotic blend of evocative horns, retro reverb guitars and profound harmonies. A real treat if you ask me

"One single black rose, lies in bleak beauty."


"Forets solitaires et sombres"

01. Josquin Des Prez - Deloration de Ockegem
02. Pucini - Asturiana : Suite Populaire Espagnole
03. Manuel de Falla - Asturiana : Suite Populaire Espagnole
04. Orinda - Forets solitaires et sombres
05. My Brightest Diamond - Gone Away (rp)
06. Feist - Gatekeeper
07. Paavoharju - Tavataan 12-7-2004 (rp)
08. Eliane Elias - Tropicalia

Note: A simple mood list made after Joanna Newsom's leaked tracks (Y's). I thought all of her tracks are a little meandering and not as good as she could have. Clearly she is trying to incorporate operatic work but the works felt directionless and hastily put together unconvincingly. (see JN hypemachine ) List above: It opens with a medieval track, Pucini (Madame Butterfly).. progressively moving into more recent works and complicated rythm section. At the center lies My Brightest Diamond balancing beat and melody and ends with Eliane Elias upcoming album with bossa nova. It's a little unusual list, but imagine facing chilly breeze in a wide open air field, facing the coming season. Enjoy.

Mini Review: Gone Away is from My Brightest Diamond debut album 'Bring Me The Workhorse'. A song album heavily influenced by Opera and classical works. Read interview here. I felt 'Bring Me The Workhorse' is one of the better work this season.

My Brightest Diamond - Something of an End
My Brightest Diamond - Disappear

Our last days of summer.

Something for the last heatwaves. The whole playlist is mostly balearic and downtempo sounds where dreaming guitar lines usually play the leading role.

Also, if you enjoy the Arrial, his whole album is available for free download here.

05. Kuniyuki - earth beats (percussion dub)
(Earth beats, 2005)
06. Lindstrom & Prins Thomas - feel PM

sometimes i just want to be hugged

we all know that the process of covering a great song is not quite the easy feat, as to top the magic of an original is highly impossible. however, it sure is interesting to listen to artists that surprisingly work in their very own way. id like to share with you, three of my personal favorites, enjoy~


blue monday
now i stand here waiting
i thought i told you to leave me
while i walked down to the beach
tell me how does it feel
when yr heart grows cold
original:: new order

one more cup of coffee
yr sister sees the future
like yr mama and yrself
you've never learned to read or write
there's no books upon yr shelf
and yr pleasure knows no limits
yr voice is like a meadowlark
but yr heart is like an ocean
mysterious and dark

how can this be?
there's nothing left here
