!! OMG, RIBBIT!: Bobby Womack’s ‘It’s Been a Long Night’ !!


When I listened to the first line of Womack’s new release and I heard him croak “computer”, I knew this meant I was going to get either ‘teaching grandpa how to use Coral Draw‘ or ‘Kate Bush’s Hagrid Coltrane addicted to internet porn ‘Deeper Understanding’ super duper’!
Luckily it was the latter; as soon as the verse kicked in, with it’s low-fi keyboard jabs under Bobby’s CROAKY SOUL-TOAD SING-A-LONG it was impossible not to -as Mary ‘Poppers’ once said- “step in time, step in time”.
I’m not a big fan of the chorus but it’s never long ’til the verse comes back around.

“you were warm, sheets were cold, I didn’t have to be TOAD”

…erm, Bob, do you mean “told” or are you referring to the fact that you are the king of the croaky soul-toads?!

!! OMG, did you say Golden Shower?: Prince Innocence’s ‘Golden Hour’ !!

princeI_1000.jpg
Boyfriend/squirlfriend duo Josh McIntyre and Talvi Faustmann, known collectively as ‘Prince Innocence’, set aside an hour, once a week, when they watch reruns of The Golden Girls and make GOLD MOH-PEE-TOS or WARM PEEPEE-COCO if it’s nearly bed-time!
It’s so relaxing and a focal part of their success as a work/play modern-day couple.

Edgar Gonzales on Soundcloud, part-way through the introductory faux-trumpet intro, describes the song as sounding “like tron had gay sex…it’s great”…sounds about right. Well put Edgar, and so say all of us; it does, and it is great!
‘Lapse – EP’ drops on April 28th.

!! OMG, are you? ‘Waiting Around For Gold’ !!


Gentleman Reg released today the video for their song “Waiting Around For Gold” from the 2012 album Leisure Life. Directed by Jeff Scheven, the video is guaranteed to draw you in with catchy hooks, melancholy vibes, and a sparkly, nude male torso.
We’ve had Leisure Life on frequent rotation since Gentleman Reg started releasing it Robyn-style as three separate EPs last year. The whole album is now available on iTunes here.

!! OMG, dust-it-off honey: Daniel Franke’s ‘Unnamed Soundsculpture’ !!


The dancer was set the task of moving in reaction to the score of Machinenfabriek’s ‘Kreukeltape’, as three ‘Kinect’ depth cameras, captured a separate set of motion data points, which were then compiled to create a 22’000 node 3-dimensional point-cloud.
Taking out the images of the dancer’s body leaves only the sense of movement, ie. the dance, not the dancer; and as the data points fall away, you are given the impression that what you are watching is transient, and impermanent as though each node creates its fleeting movement before being won-over by gravity.
Now I know what drag queens mean when they say another has dusty knees…this girl, she AAAAALL DUSTY!

!! OMG, She WAS somebody: [ft. Octavia St Laurent] House of Wallenberg’s ‘Be Somebody’ !!

octavia_m41p654HAD1qf3qk5o1_500.jpg
Somebody who knew a thing or two about being somebody was trans singer Octavia St Laurent, who you may recognise from the seminal ball-scene documentary ‘Paris Is Burning’.
Octavia died of cancer in 2009, having also spent a large portion of her life battling AIDS.
Her vocals and memory are captured in House of Wallenberg’s self-directed video for ‘Be Somebody’, featuring voguers from the ‘Homes’ of Ninja, Evisu and Milan, and a homeless man who also knows something else about being somebody.

The single is due to drop on March 18th and will include a B-side ‘Be Somebody Part ll’ featuring fellow Sweden-based Buffalo Stander Neneh Cherry [love love love] !
Work me god damn it !
