On The Turntable

Posted by paul on August 25, 2012 at 8:20 AM

What are you listening to right now?   Shawn has been sharing his record collection with us.   What's on your 'turntable' now?  


Right now my favorite song is Dark Star, by Polica.   According to Wikipedia, Polica is a fairly new indie band from Minneapolis.  

 

What is mine

What is all mine

Not my child not my child

Hold you just a little while

I'm gonna give her all my life

Until she's until she's

Swooped up by the sea of love

Ain't a man in this world who can pull me down

From my dark star dark star

I will remain there

It's done me good so far

What is mine, what is all mine

Not my child not my child

Hold you just a little while

I'm gonna give her all my life

Until she's until she's

Swooped up, swooped up, by the sea of love

Ain't a man in this world who can pull me down

From my dark star dark star

I will remain there

It's done me good so far

What is mine, oooh

What is all mine

Not my child, not my child

Hold you just a little while

I'm gonna give her all my life

Until she's, until she's

 

       Swooped up by the sea of love


It seems a very eighties song, by a sort of noise band meets ska band meets Stevie Nicks disciple, but with a mood that is very contemporary...


live version

I'm a hiphop-head, so I'm not entirely sure you guys would like my music selection. I've been listening to a lot of Lupe Fiasco recently, especially All Black Everything. However, other genres find a spot in my playlist as well. I've been playing some of Clutch's Electric Worry recently.

Wouldn't you call Mos Def hip-hop, GeeZee? I would, but I know it's like any genre in that different people define it different ways..

It is, isn't it? But the rest of their stuff seems to sound a lot the same, only not as good. Love the Doors,of course. I used to listen to the Beatles Abbey Road and the Doors first album, I think, as a pair.

Mos Def:

"Revelations, hatred, love and war.
And more and more and more and more
And more of less than ever before
It's just too much more for your mind to absorb

It's scary like hell, but there's no doubt
We can't be alive in no time but... NOW!!!

Whoa this is pretty different. I don't mind it though. It's kinda neat.

It's a real head space, isn't it? It reminds me a little bit of Portishead.

What are you listening to Jlil?

Fiasco:

So no matter what you been through, no matter what you into
No matter what you see when you look outside your window
Brown grass or green grass, picket fence or barbed wire
Never ever put them down, you just lift your arms higher

Clutch reminds me a little of ZZ Top. Thnx - hadn't heard of them before, GeeVee.

Oh it definitely is. It's just that I've mostly been alone among my peers regarding my musical tastes, so I've gotten used to that.

By the way, the song you quoted back there by Lupe, The Show Goes On, is one of my favorites by him.

The idea there is profound, isn't it? If we could fully appreciate the miracle of life, we'd never fear any situation, because we'd always find a way to embrace something about it. I don't mean that taken to an extreme, of course, just that it's not appreciating life itself that causes folks to be so fearful of what they might 'lose', or so disappointed by what they have, as opposed to what they don't have, that they become paralyzed, depressed, etc.. It's a lot to think about...
