Not only for Emma

May 6th, 2009

This is another artist everyone loves to write about, but I love his 2 recent albums so much that I have got to include something about him here on Lofiles. His unique guitar tuning and down playing and falsetto vocals, and beautiful little are a big inspiration for me.
“Justin Vernon began recording under the nom de band Bon Iver following the breakup of DeYarmond Edison, an indie folk group similar in tone and manner to Iron & Wine, Little Wings and, to a certain extent, Bonnie “Prince” Billy. Vernon’s solo project took DeYarmond Edison’s introspective, folky sound and embellished it with squinchy, quirky orchestral touches that nodded to Sparklehorse and a drifty optimism reminiscent of the Flaming Lips. Vernon moved back to Wisconsin the winter following DeYarmond’s demise, setting up camp in a remote cabin in the north woods for three months. It was a hugely generative period for Vernon; writing and recording songs in 12-hour bursts, he found himself with a nine-song debut album by spring. He dubbed the project Bon Iver (an intentional misspelling of the French for “good winter”), and the disc, For Emma, Forever Ago, was released on Jagjaguwar in early 2008. Joined in his live shows by Sean Carey, Vernon toured throughout the eastern U.S. and Canada throughout the remainder of the year, sharing the stage with like-minded singer/songwriter Elvis Perkins. As the year progressed, the album became quite popular with both the buying public and critics, eventually landing on a number of “Best of 2008″ year-end lists. In January of 2009, Bon Iver returned with an EP of old and new songs titled Blood Bank”. Written by Margaret Reges

Mend a broken heart

May 3rd, 2009

It has to do with broken hearts and expectations, disappointment and shattered dreams, a big big hole deep inside that cant be filled, real life and the world of fantasy, and about things that are forbidden. This song by Crescent is the soundtrack to all that….

Soul tune factory

May 3rd, 2009

A good friend of mine is in Japan and he sent me a link of this band he saw last night. I like them a lot
Soul tune factory Myspace says:”Based on the concept of “filmusic”, a form of entertainment mixing film and music, Soul Tune Factory have been active around Tokyo since 2006.
“filmusic” can be “A film you watch with your ears”…
It can be based on an experience…
It can be instinctive…
It can be a story…
Be it music genres or forms of _expression, various styles are considered for every ‘filmusic’. Soul Tune Factory have been working actively to develop new forms of entertainment.
Some of the members play instruments, some are film writers, some are actors, some are dancers and some are designers… This is a strange group which can’t simply be categorised as a band.
We don’t know which ‘filmusic’ will be played at which show. If it’s your first time, it will be something totally different. Once you have experienced it, the next show will reflect other aspects of the entertainment. So don’t judge us because you saw us once. It would be great if you could stick around for a while”

Land of forgotten funk

May 1st, 2009

After attending the best funk school for 11 years, making them funky hip hop records and working with the hottest hard core east coast producers and artists ( Easy mo bee, DJ premier, Guru, MC lyte, Lord Finesse and others), I got my funk diploma. I am telling you all that not to bragg or show off, just to prove I am able to recognize good authentic funk when I hear it, and this is gggggggggoood funk. It is a compilation and is called “Nigeria Special“.

This a review written by Jon Lusk and is posted by the BBC.
“Shortly after the disastrous Biafran war and before the profits from Nigeria’s oil boom were completely squandered, laundered, sequestered or stolen, Nigerian music was on a roll. By the mid ’80s, the home grown recording industry would be in serious decline, but this entertaining 2CD set reminds us how vibrant things were, mining a vein overlapping that of Honest Jons’ 2005 releases, Lagos Chop Up and Lagos All Routes – with the added bonus of informative sleeve notes that you can actually read, and reproductions of colourful cover art. Compiler and label boss Miles Cleret avoids the obvious juju/apala/Afro-beat scenes also very active at the time, concentrating as the title indicates on the rather psychedelic, ‘western’-influenced Afro-rock and the more gentle, loose-limbed highlife typical of the period, mostly by musicians from east of Lagos. Even serious Nigerian music heads will know only a few of the bigger names such as Victor Uwaifo, The Funkees and Celestine Ukwu, but the lesser known artists are in no way overshadowed.
Highlights are multitudinous, but the first track that really catches the attention on disc 1 is the surging Amalinja, by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination with its insistent sax work. The Funkees weigh in with the funkily chugging Afro-rock Akula Owu Onyeara, boasting prominent bass, searing vocals, wah-wah guitar and noodling organ. Dele Ojo and His Star Brothers band are rootsier; Oja Omoba being a percussion-rich treat, while the swinging highlife of The Harbours Band’s Koma Mosi may be the model for King Sunny Ade’s Easy Motion Tourist. Other standouts include gloriously mellow highlife from St. Augustine & His Rovers Dance Band and The Sahara All Stars of Jos, whose “Feso Jaiye” floats along on a languid groove decorated with sweetly muted trumpet, sax, sublime vocal harmonies and what sounds like a vibraphone. To close, there’s a smouldering Afro-jazz instrumental by The Tony Benson Sextet, featuring the kind of luminous organ solo that might have been ground out by The Spencer Davis Group or suchlike a few years earlier.
Disc two opens with the slinky, Fela-influenced Asiko Mi Ni by The Nigeria Police Force Band. The bass-line strongly suggests Dave and Ansel Collins’ reggae smash Double Barrel (from two years earlier) and the organ solo is straight out of bedlam. Opotopo’s jaunty Belema features Fatai Rolling Dollar, who recently made a comeback working with Tony Allen, and then there’s Dan Satch & His Atomic 8 Dance Band of Aba, who sound like they learnt a thing or three from New Orleans funkmeisters The Meters. Two other highlights are Collins Oke Elaiho & His Odoligie Nobles Dance band – whose hypnotic Siminyi-Yaya features yet another monster bass line and an infectious vocal hook – and The Hykkers’ Afro-rock instrumental I Want To Break Thru, with its wonderfully crazed guitar grooves.
One could go on, but there wouldn’t be room to write even half the bands’ names. This compilation pulls off the trick of being a fine place for the curious novice to start, but also of great interest to specialists.

This is “Take your soul” of the Disco Funk vol. of the “Nigeria Special” compilation series.
