Doesn't a South African fireworks show start off black, go white for 50 years, then go black again?
I'll just whistle and back out of the room and go post this somewhere else
Hey, Nilpferd. I loved that. I didn't know what to expect (after work, tired, few glasses of wine, just trying to sneak some listening in before the mad dash to boys in bed), and the song and video just killed me. Do you know anything else about her? The name seems so familiar. Just watching it again. Beautiful.
Saneshane posted a few songs of hers in the dropbox a month or so ago. You ingrates.
wot he said.@nilpferdWheels In Motion by her features Roots Manuva.tis good.Blimpy kinda said she was a Guardian music reviewers wet dream ( I might be paraphrasing)And I missed her at Latitude because - umm might have been watching Fever Ray or Lykke Li, can't remember.
Haha, sorry Shane. That's why it's so familiar. D'oh d'oh d'oh. I did love it though, and watched it a few more times. Sigh. Sorry shane. I'm old, I can't keep up with all the music you youngsters post.
Love the music; much more interesting than I would have expected (from my admittedly limited listening). I find it hard to relate to the vocal, though: I'm not keen on talk-sing and I'm very fed up with the accent, thanks to Lily Allen & co.But, yes, lovely sounds.
Ha ha, sorry shane, I don't download anything from dropbox and I've been a bit distracted lately so I missed that, I just "discovered" that track last night on Ninjatune.net because it was the audio clip of the moment.("for myself", as I used to say to my brother when there was an authorial dispute on who said what first)I will try to pay more attention in future.You really ought to put up a post with flashing lights and a "nilpferd might like this" tag next time. LARGE TYPE or at least CAPITAL LETTERS would help.
Steen, I felt the same watching the video- it's incredibly warm and affecting. The selector sessions version is an interesting contrast, perhaps even more intimate, although I do like the oboe and sax in the release version.Read about Speech Debelle here.
¡¡¡¡¡¡NILPFERD!!!!!! There are some Tony Allen related goodies in the dropbox for you and Steenbeck.
*Nilp secretly gets to work writing up a post claiming to have "discovered" 3 cds worth and a 256 page edited booklet of great Tony Allen tracks*
Hey, thanks EJ!
Oh boy! Thanks, ejay!
You're welcome, folks.
Really enjoyed the Tony Allen, EJ, I only had two tracks of his until now. Interesting how important the bass and guitar/rhodes is to his sound- gives it a relaxed, loping feeling compared to Fela's "hotter" sound- a bit like comparing the e-bass heavy early electric era Miles (Allen) to his earlier, sixties, horn focused bands (Fela).
I think I find him easier to listen to than Fela, possibly for these very reasons, which I hadn't thought about.
I tried to download and it got stuck. Don't deletet it yet! Can't wait to listen.
OK, I'll wait. You have ONE hour!Re your iphone/itunes/music/capacity issue, I don't know if your fancy iphone works like my rickety ipod, but you know that screen when your phone shows in itunes, there might be a music tab, along with movies photos, etc. There you should be able to choose which playlists are synced with your phone. All you need now is to make a special 'Spill playlist in itunes.
I think Tony Allen's music with his own band is more about the groove, he is creating a particular sound, so I think of In a silent way or Ghetto Walk, On the corner, or Herbie Hancock's Headhunters. Fela's music was messier and complex, here I think more of Miles' abstract quintet in the sixties, still driven by the pulse, obviously, but with other elements of call and response, tension and release, and more message driven.
EJD and Steen, plus anyone else interested, I just added my two Tony Allen tracks- actually three, but No discrimination is already there- to dropbox.. Never Expect Power Always, and Road Close, both from the 1984 N.E.P.A. EP.
Hey, I didn't even have time to get the songs!
Not sure what happened there, EJ- it looks like they are back in now... let me know if you need them re-uploaded..
I re-uploaded them. Steenbeck, turn off the lights and delete the files when you're done.
I do have Lagos Shake: A Tony Allen Chop Upwith Diplo/ Bonde do Role / and another 9 doing mixes.. but my computer isn't working properly..so steen will have to leave the lights off.
I'm at work, my dears, it'll have to wait till tomorrow. I have allthe original ta & ar that were in the folder this morning, though.
*ahem* NILPFERD (OK, Saneshane) tips Mercury winner two months in advance..
