Experiment

I’m in love with Breton‘s music:

Temptations

This is how I chose to understand the lyrics to Theme Park‘s new song:

Found it in me to be your lover
Found it in me to be your friend
But I’ve got a home, a place for another

An idle, a wheel

I’m going to do whatever I do, and if I don’t do this and can’t find something else and lose all of my money and become broke, then I’m going to have some hard times. There will be new people that I’ll meet, and I’m to be excited about that. I know that I’ll be having new experiences and traveling to places.

That is how Fiona Apple sees the future and it is refreshing and reassuring and I’d love to be able to feel like that all the time too.

 

Garotos

When you love so long
That the thrill is gone
And your kisses at night
Are replaced with my tears

Lyrics by Bat For Lashes,

Picture by João Viegas

Future

How reckless is stupidity diverted to oneself?
How many of the same mistakes is one entitled to make?
How careless does one need to be before becoming one’s own bait?
How far into the past does one need to see before being freed from its shelf?

Kuduro is a type of music and dance from Angola.

Titica is a transexual kuduro performer who’s won support through her career.

M.I.A. has defined the modest origins and therein the strength of kuduro:

“It initially came from kids not having anything to make music on other than cellphones, using samples they’d get from their PCs and mobiles’ sound buttons. It’s a rave-y, beat oriented sound. Now that it’s growing, they’ve got proper PCs to make music on.”

Music always makes one stronger.

First person singular

There was something in the bass you gave me
I was losing all my self control
I can see that I was acting crazy

Didn’t I tell you, didn’t I tell, you didn’t I tell you?
Not to be so kind to me

I want to live in this melody.

Reptile

I’m creeping out of crumbling ideals and trying to create something hopeful.
Like music, like beauty.

My newest melodic solace: Citizens!

Don’t let your blood run cold

Hail to M.I.A.

M.I.A. is the only popular artist out there who is political and fun simultaneously.

I know of no other persona who has so shrewdly inserted Arab aesthetics and culture into mainstream pop without becoming tiresome.

Fighting prejudice can be really interesting.

Fertile

Now you do, now you do

Baby, now you do

Leisure Time

Meeting & greeting & being nice

I somehow feel very enthusiastic about it.

I usually tend to keep to myself, you see

One, two, three

I’m still having a hard time getting back on track with the posts: for that I am sorry.

I shall attempt to use music as my fuel.

Slow Magic is my band du jour:

Time to sharpen our senses.
