TONIGHTS TRACK

February 22, 2010

Sufjan Stevens – The Majesty Snowbird – Live Oct 5, 2005 – NYC Truly gorgeous song and brilliant with a full orchestra. Ive seen Sufjan 8 times over the past 5 years. No live version that Ive experienced beats the evening at the Brooklyn Academy of Music when they featured Sufjan Stevens BQE Experience. The power behind the song, and a stage full instruments, was breathtaking. I had a bit of an obsession with this song. And it wasnt necessarily the need to listen to the song but, I incessantly searched for an mp3 to put into my pocket – vs. having to stream from a blog. Ive learned that there are no proper studio cuts available out there – only live recordings. This is one of the better recordings out there. Oh, and if you can find a decent mp3 of this song, please send it along! Photographs by: Vincent Cornelli Photographed for: brooklynvegan.com

TONIGHT’S TRACK – SONDENS – INERTIA

TONIGHT’S TRACK – SONDENS – INERTIA

Sondens is an old German friend of mine, based in Vienna.  He’s not only an exceptional musician and DJ, he rocks many European galleries with his thoughtful and complex installations…and he’s damn good.

Tonight’s Track is from my friend Benoni, otherwise known as Sondens.

The first track is really new and amazing, with Violetta Parisini, but I especially enjoy the second track – Inertia, and the forth track – someonewontresist.

Here’s a pic of Benoni’s work, and a link to his website: http://tinyurl.com/yk3eut8.

But hit up those tracks, I think you’ll enjoy.

TONIGHT’S TRACK – NEW LALI PUNA JAM – REMEMBER

February 1, 2010

TONIGHT’S TRACK – NEW LALI PUNA JAM – REMEMBER

I have to say, I was originally disappointed when I heard this track.  It’s been such a long time since Valerie Trebeljahr, the brains behind Lali Puna, has put out any new music.

I mean, having a child changes priorities naturally, and that’s wonderful.  But it was more of the same.  It wasn’t seeing it as impressive, or really relevant.  I thought perhaps that the music would evolve subsequent to such a momentous occasion.  I thought for a second that perhaps music to her was more mathematical…more logic than feeling.

And I quickly countered that thought with reason, noting…her music is emotive just as it is.  And shit, more of the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  It breathes, and it’s refreshing to go back to something familiar…but still different.

Lali Puna

Do I expect a lot from the artists I love the most?  Absolutely.  It’s the same with how I value my friendships and relationships with anyone.  The closer you are to me, the more I expect from you…and that’s the same high/intense level I operate on in return.  Perhaps it’s a flaw.  Perhaps that sets you, and the people you love most in the world, up for failure.  I dont know.  But I guess we’re all still learning – we better be.

In this case though, this is not the first time I’ve been let down by this artist.  One of the reasons I went to Iceland in 2007 was to hit Iceland Airwaves, a 5 day music festival. It was predominantly because one of my absolute hidden favorite band’s was Valerie’s band, Lali Puna. I sacrificed my final night of music festival to see Lali Puna.  While I was meeting people all over the place, I was alone most of this trip.  It’s nice to be free on your own sometimes.

But on that final evening of my 11 day trip, I passed up seeing the FM Belfast and Chromeo show with 3 other Americans I met randomly in the greatest of Icelandic places – people that would soon become the closest of friends in my life.  And, Im sorry…after 3 or 4 years of not touring (and she hasn’t toured since), it was a disappointing flat-energy show.

But…after a second, third, fourth and fifth listen of Remember.  I really dig it.  And, like it’s title, it brings me back.

Lali 2

When I first came across Lali Puna in 2004, right when Faking the Books was released, it couldn’t have been better timing.  I found that first album…and I went back for the other 2 full lengths, and an EP. It fit the winter, it fit the introspection and it worked so well into the late spring.

She became a phase, and her music was a soundtrack for that period in my life…quite similar to my Serge Gainsbourg obsession…that’s another story for another day.
