!! OMG, SHAKE YOUR HABITUAL ASS: The Knife’s ‘STH’ interview !!

tk_miu8xiAJzX1r7rh3ao1_500.jpg
Beginning with a mesmeric swingy swing and the footage taken from their album teaser from last December, The Knife’s album ‘interview’ expands upon this very album teaser blurb and their later released album manifesto [also after the jump], questioning systems of fame and school institutions that they see as failed and championing those systems [the ecosystem, the soundsystem] which they still believe can instil change.
Scanning through relatively mundane images [people dancing, birds feeding, doorways and windows, railings and walls], Olof and Karin narrate a new process-heavy-shake-up of old habits:

“we approached each other…through the language of others…and we play…and we played and we played and we played…to let go of what we already knew about music and explore what we didn’t know…letting go…we want to question the knife”

“we used homemade instruments, or played traditional instruments in non-traditional ways and tried to find non-tradional ways of creating traditional sounds…making a bedspring sound like a voice, or a voice sound like a bedspring”

They discuss protest songs [against monarchy and the nuclear family] and the power of safety in collectivism. They use the “commercial homogenisation and extreme hierarchical conservatism” of the music industry as a metaphor for societal shifts in Europe, and set aside their previously worn masks which questioned ideas of “fake tanning” fame and identity, but then became commercial institutions in themselves:

“I think there are no real ‘us’, behind the masks there are other masks”

I’ve popped the video after the jump due to some non-nuclear titty sucking near the end so jump in and SHAKE YOUR HABITUAL ASS !

“it’s time to move…to fall…to fly”

!! 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 !

!! OMG, brother grimm: Mykki Blanco on his Poetic Roots !!

mykki_1033413.jpg
It runs true that a gender-exploratory rapper such as Mykki Blanco would have his/her feet heeled in poetry and performance art roots.
Mykki spoke to dazed about her/his early ventures into performance art [through the Paint Unconsciousness collective], an fetal love of ‘fringe biographies’ [Bette Midler, Oscar Wilde], and his early ventures into poetry which s/he describes as “Brothers Grimm turned on it’s head”.
You can read her/his interview HERE, and see one of Mykki’s earlier backing-tracked poetry readings of ‘From the Silence of Duchamp to Noise of Boys’ HERE.
