This is such a great song. I hear echos of Radiohead, Jose Gonzales and Jeff Buckley and yet it is a very original magnificently written and produced track with heaps of voice and guitar layers. Repeat!
This is how I “Bloom”…in mourning mode. Again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. Guess what keeps me alive…Naima Joris, Facebook
This is not just a cover of a beautiful song (which I consider one of the best ever by Radiohead), this is so full of emotion, so real, so painful. Naima Joris is a great artist!
When I heard this on PBB (I think, but it might have been WorldWide FM as well) I thought it was a nice hat tip to spiritual jazz of the sixties & seventies, but it turns out it’s a cover/ remake of a tune that was originally performed by saxophonist Albert Ayler (mostly known as free-jazz saxophonist and protégé of John Coltrane) and written (and sung) by his partner Mary Maria Parks back in 1969.
Over 20 years have passed since first seeing Magnolia which not only was a beautiful movie, but also a testament to the great songwriter Aimee Mann is. “I see You” is a song from her new album “Queens of the Summer Hotel” and it is just as great!
Just when I was starting to get a good old-fashioned cold I heard this on the radio while in the car. It didn’t stop me from going into hibernation for a couple of days, but man what a great tune!
Having (had) lazy eyes myself I cannot help but sympathize with this band of Aussie youngsters. And “Where is my Brain??” is some crazy psychedelic motorik-beat (with a fill) driven piece of geniousness.
OK, that might be somewhat of an exaggeration, but look & listen carefully headphones on and the volume turned to 11!
Last Sunday-evening while making the beds, listening to Charlotte Adigéry’s very enjoyable radioshow on Stubru, I heard “At last I Am Free”. Turns out Robert Wyatt actually covered this pretty uncharacteristic Chic-song, but I prefer his version:
Wat een boek …
Coming of age, de buitenwijken, New York, Noorwegen. Muziek, toneel, schilderkunst. De oorlog in Vietnam de oorlog die Coppola’s film over de oorlog in Vietnam was. Communisme, kapitalisme. Eenzaamheid, vervreemding, maar ook liefde.
1230 pagina’s en ik zou direct opnieuw beginnen (en ik ben stukken aan het herlezen), ondanks de soms zwaar op de hand liggende beschouwingen over toneel of schilderkunst (maar vooral de stukken over toneel zijn nu zoveel relevanter).
Wat een boek!
Voor de muziekfreaks; een YouTube playlist :
Phoebe Bridgers was everywhere this year; Better Oblivion Community Center with Conor Oberst, her cover of The Goo Goo Doll’s “Iris” with Maggie Rogers to celebrate Trump’s defeat, but most importantly her solo album with this impressive multi-faceted and deeply touching “I know the end”.
