Birthdays….for real

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Was working on some graphics while listening to Mating falls this morning and that`s what I came up with ( visual above). This is an EP by the Fmly collective`s Sammy Yager and his Birthdays venture. One couldn’t help it but compare the groove and overall feel and melody lines to Animal collective, but personally, I like this bedroom version better. I dig it when its spontaneous, raw, with a ‘we don’t give a f..’ attitude, or maybe this is what you do when you are  young, I don’t know, but hey, who gives a damn….this shitt is workin. Go ahead and download some reel real music…here and there

Atiba song

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Everybody writes about Panda bear, and it is our decision for the longest, not to write about songs you are going to find out on every site. Not to say we don’t appreciate nor love his doings or Animal collective`s, but usually we try to expose the hidden. The only difference this time is that his new song got this clip using this new Panasonic SLR new camera, and personally, it interests us. This was shot by the Lumix GH2 DSLR, full HD, only compressed for web needs. Enjoy both.


Get Back Guinozzi’s! video for new single ‘Carpet Madness’ – out yesterday!

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Following the October release of their identically-titled debut album, ‘Carpet Madness’ is the second single from FatCat’s latest signing, Get Back Guinozzi! Full of colour and character, it comprises a unique blossoming of hybrid sources – infectiously poppy, quirky and breezy, with a strong French slant and a wide range of influences taking in the likes of Talking Heads, The Feelies, The Smiths, early B-52′s, King Sunny Adé, Lee Perry, Rip Rig & Panic, Ariel Pink, The Slits, The Cure, Animal Collective, Jonathan Richman, and Serge Gainsbourg.

A-side ‘Carpet Madness’ is a mischievous, West African-influenced example of the band’s ability to craft a rewardingly eccentric idiosyncrasy from deceptively simple pop structures and rhythyms. Backed with the sweet and perfectly formed, electronically modified ‘Out Of The Loop’, a previously-unreleased track taken from the ‘Carpet Madness’ album sessions, this single faithfully represents the odd, enchanting and wholly unique songwriting that exemplifies the insatiable charm of Get Back Guinozzi!

Now comprising a 5-piece band based between London and the South of France, Get Back Guinozzi! is driven by two French friends, Eglantine Gouzy and Fred Landini. The roots of Get Back Guinozzi! lay in Fred composing fifteen brief tracks for a contemporary dance company, using a minimal set up of guitar, rhythm box, and only one keyboard sound. Having already collaborated with her on previous material, Fred sent London-based Eglantine instrumental versions of two tracks to work on and the pair were so excited by the results that they decided to form a band. More tracks were sent across the internet during Winter 2007, with Eglantine adding vocals, keyboards, percussion and odd electronics, until an album’s worth of material was formed and dispatched to us. Following further meetings and conversations, tracks were sharpened, more songs recorded, and the resulting album was re-mixed by Michael Beckett (alias Schneider TM’s Kpt. Michigan) and released in October 2008. A five-piece band was formed with the addition of Regis Laugier (bass), Luc Benito (drums) and Fabrice Giuisiano (guitar, keyboard), and GBG played their debut shows in September.

With lyrical meaning often partially obscured (Eglantine refers to her singing “English in a baboon style”), Fred describes Eglantine’s lyrics as being replete with fantasy and a kind of dark humor. “It’s Eglantine’s view of the world. It’s an attempt at Zouk or tropical music with these lyrics that are a little bit spooky.” Influenced by singers like Ari Up (The Slits), Pygmies, Laurie Anderson, Serge Gainsbourg, Allison Staton (Young Marble Giants) and Donna Summer, Eglantine likes “to imagine my own little movies where I can be different characters. I can make doubles of myself, I can transform myself – a real schizophrenic, sometimes within the same track.”

Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit’s the Very Best project B side with Yalira, sounds to me like an African Fleetfoxes meets Animal collective. Listen to the vocal arrangement. Awesome
