what it means to be heard

Rearranging albums from the last year over the weekend. Gave a good kick-off for the upcoming days. If you still haven't heard, make sure you do hear it now. Akua Naru. Powerful music espresso under 3 minutes. That's what I call a new start. Monday vibes.

The video was directed by Double Rush. Make sure to get Akua's The Miner's Canary album here.

molam | singing expert

Soundway never lets you down. Closing the week with the North-East Thailand sounds.

North-East Thailand, the epicentre of Molam and Luk Thung Isan music. The term molam is actually two separate words pushed together: Mo meaning ‘expert’ or ‘doctor’ and lam meaning ‘to sing’. Hence the literal translation means ‘singing expert’. Many molam records have extended intros that allow a vocalist to establish the theme of the song, as well as flex their improvisational muscles. Luk thung (literally ‘song of the countryside’)is a much broader, rural style that had a bigger impact nationally. via Soundway

space pop

Revisiting works of Yoshi Sodeoka. Unmistakable. As always. Here he's teaming up with Ice Cream Cathedral. Now I'm in serious need of some gigs. LIVE. MUSIC. NOW.

ps. And I just realised that's actually my 500th post in here. Now... let's dance.

new flow | insular

Kick-off of the year. Good company. Aesthetics of  Aline Frazão. In an insular manner.

The video was directed by Pablo Blanco.

decidi voltar atrás
desistir nunca dá paz
a beleza insular
não chega sem partilhar
