Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto

I’ve been a fan of Ryuichi Sakamoto since the 80’s. he worked with another artist whom i really like too. David Sylvian.
I discovered Alva Noto (German composer)more recently and fell in love with his music. ended up buying all his albums and EP’s.
his sound is very unique…he doesn’t use instruments, he uses sounds.

…but when the collaboration with Sakamoto happened there was a perfect match of electronic noise and bleeps combined with the organic piano music of Sakamoto. this combination really works well.

SND – Atavism

i don’t expect anyone to like this music, or even call it music…but i love it.
Glitch music has been popularised by Aphex Twin and Autechre, but both these excellent artists require a certain amount of effort on the listener, to absorb the music.
SND are different, in that, their music can be absorbed by relaxing and allowing the music to flow over you.

As i said, i’m not really expecting others to enjoy this music as much as i do.
SND are Mark Fell & Mat Steel.

Carmen McRae / How Long Has This Been Going On

‘Neath the stars, at bazaars
Often I’ve had to caress men
Five or ten, dollars then, I’d collect from all those yes-men
Don’t be sad, I must add, that they meant no more than chess-men

Darling, can’t you see?
‘Twas for charity?
Though these lips have made slips, it was never really serious
Who’d have thought, I’d be caught in a state that’s so delirious?

I could cry
Salty tears
Where have i been all these years
Listen you, tell me do
How long has this been going on?

What a kick
How I buzz
Boy, you click like no one does
Listen sweet, i repeat
How long has this been going on?

Dear, when in your arms I creep
That divine rendezvous
Don’t wake me if i’m asleep
Let me dream that it’s true

Kiss me once, kiss me twice
Then once more, that makes thrice
Come on lets make it four

What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been going on?

What a break, for heaven’s sake
How long has this been going on?

du hast – rammstein

You, you hate
You hate me
You, you hate
You hate me
You, you hate
You hate me
You, you hate
You hate me

[Refrain]
You, you hate
You hate me, you hate me
You hate me to say, you hate me to say
You hate me to say and I did not obey

[Verse]
Will you until death does sever
Be upright to her forever?
Never, never!
Will you until death does sever
Be upright to her forever?
Never, never!

Lane 8 – Loving You (In Session with Lulu James)

Lane 8 is easily my favorite musician…

Are we gonna be here forever after
Captivated for a moment, an end in time
Would you leave me if I crossed the line

Are we gonna be here forever suspended
Treading on water, treading on water
Drowning out together
Drowning out together

I’m a fool for love
I’m a fool for love
I’m a fool for love
I’m a fool for love

I’m a fool for love
I’m a fool for love
I’m a fool for love
I’m a fool for love
