Might just gotta try it out Why not? Might just gotta try it out Why not? I just might just gotta try it out Try it out. Why not? Try it out Folklore summons coming from the farthest reaches sound the horn, ha Hoards for the stomping of the scorched earth harvest of the corn, ha Gather round, gather round Call to the lost and the found And he wears a five-spiked crown, tell ‘em From the top of the cerebellum Initiate the god sequence  MLD come to officiate the off-seeing  Slick hawking but I'm not Steven  Serve a swerved curveball, topspin like Venus or Serena Williams Millions and millions of fine filaments simmering In the path of the Mistral, Marseille to Languedoc Forecast gale force non-stop Better summon all your flock to the rock when the bomb drops   CHORUS Why? Why not? Try it out Gather round, gather round Call to the lost and the found And he wears a five-spiked crown tell ‘em From the top of the cerebellum Thick Honey glazed symphony  Sun rays glisten on the surface of the ancient sea Wind whistles over waves like a melody  Age of the centipede … M-L-D Coming through your city murder them gently Got plenty plenty bangers and the natty bottles Just to make your fatty wobble wrote it like a trashy novel We keep it knocking like a sassy brothel,  Eat Pakistani waffles, I see you've swallowed all the tangy awful Soon or later get your granny ogled wearing these new brandy goggles Sing it like a modern day gospel a la Andy Warhol, go pick up your sandy golf ball CHORUS Why not? Might just gotta try it out Why not? I just might just gotta try it out Folklore summons coming from the farthest reaches sound the horn Hoards for the harvest of the corn Stomping the lawn to build the foundation   Calm is the sea As he holds a handful of pomegranate seeds Still water runs deep, low-tide coast-liner Part-time ghostwriter, full time gold miner Old timer, still hate po-niner, Co-sign a deal to hit em with the clothes-liner Iron out the ting, heads are now about to ring Slept on the announcement yo, a Jester cannot joust a king CHORUS __________ More on #ASM #ColorWheel #CMR

Aziza Brahim - Hada jil (official video)

CD/LP: Digital: Release Date: 15/11/2019 Glitterbeat Records On the front cover of Aziza Brahim’s new album, Sahari, a young girl poses in ballet shoes and a glistening white tutu. It’s a common childhood scene, but it’s tipped upside down. She’s not privileged and the backdrop isn’t a comfortable suburban home. She’s an exile, living nowhere near her homeland, and behind her stand the tents and buildings of a refugee camp. There’s a desert on the ground and a burning sky above. Yet even in this bleakness, she has optimism. She believes in a better future. The music Aziza Brahim makes reflects both the sorrow and the hope of these people. She grew up in one of those camps in the Algerian desert, along with thousands of other Saharwai who were removed from their homes in the Western Sahara. The refugee camp was the place that formed her. It lives in her every heartbeat. Her grandmother was a famous Saharwai poet, her mother well-known as a vocalist, and they passed their strength and fearlessness to her. Now, as one of North African most lauded singers, Brahim uses her position to make the plight of her people known – and of the refugees across the world who have no choice but to exist in the camps. Sahari is for them as much as it’s for her own family. The political remains intensely personal for Brahim. She lives in exile, in Spain, and the music for Sahari – her third album for Glitterbeat - was written there. And while her songs remain grounded in her homeland, her gaze is increasingly global. To achieve that, Brahim worked with the acclaimed Spanish artist Amparo Sánchez of the band Amparanoia on the album’s pre-production, and the collaboration has made a transformative impact on the music. The focus is broader, with programming and keyboards a vital part of the new sound. “Amparo is an artist I’ve always admired,” Brahim observes. “She suggested introducing electronics, and that meant recording in a different way. Before, we’d record everything live. This time we all worked in different studios then put the pieces together. I produced the album, the first time I’ve done that since Mabruk in 2012, and it was a very difficult job, a very interesting challenge: to work in a new way yet make your own songs sound exactly as you want.” When Brahim began as a composer, her work reflected her own reality, growing up in the far, rocky desert known as the hamada. These days she’s become a voice for refugees across the globe, and what she sees every day on the news has inevitably affected her writing. “The normalisation of injustice is something that the Saharawis know well,” she observes. “By addressing that in the songs, I’m trying to fight against the prejudices some people have. We all see tragic news caused by the policies of reactionary governments. Of course that’s influenced the writing of the songs on this new album. How could it not?” And one of the most powerful pieces on Sahari is a cry for home from someone caught in the flux of exile. “Ard El Hub,” Brahim explains, speaks of “the impossibility of returning to the homeland for us. The lyrics of the song are by Zaim Alal, a great Saharawi poet. I saw him the last time I was in the refugee camps, and he wrote this poem for me to sing.”

Sam Lee - The Garden of England (Seeds of Love) | Official Music Video

The Garden of England (Seeds Of Love) taken from the new album, 'Old Wow', out now: Follow Sam Lee: Instagram: Facebook: Twitter: Official Site: Directed by Jon Kwan With thanks to Corin Stuart & Windyridge, Forest Row, Sussex THE GARDEN OF ENGLAND (SEEDS OF LOVE) Lyrics We sowed the seeds of love We showed them how to sing Grown with a knowing of something in their blood Where ceremony begins When the apron string unpinned My garden was forsook To weigh in on industry Raised beyond the altar, under oak and ash I grew to a bony rowan tree Freely in my own country But some oak trees won’t twist For they’re brittle beneath the bark Better that limbs be broke and brought to ground And service the light to dark We’re just servants unto the dark For the gatekeeper can’t stand by For they must be bound to be free Lightworking the liminal, listening to the land Fingering at mystery Not Sally, fee and easy Oh grief, oh grief have I For the songs they go to decay The garden of England once bloomed it’s sound assault Now destined for some bouquet No roses in this display For the rose it bore a thorn A spritz of wilful spark But taming its temper to never pierce the palm We’ll never touch the heart, the heart No poison tip to the dart We sowed the seeds of love We showed them how to sing Grown with a knowing of wildness in their blood More than the sum of the everything The old wow never wears thin... Sweet as the birds in the spring Home is when the heart sings The songs that tell of our own kith and kin The old wow never wears thin... Out of decay new life springs As the anima sheds its own skin While this pebble rolls its big rings The old wow never wears thin The old wow never wears thin Some of my favourite things The old wow never wears thin #OldWow #TheGardenOfEngland #SamLeeMusic
