And now for a post with actual content! What better way to start off a blog known as "The Song of my People" then with a few choice selections of music found across the internet? (Let it be known that all videos posted are officially supported by the artists contained therein and the copyright is, of course, theirs in its entirety.)
Morcheeba- Blood Like Lemonade
Morcheeba is an artist duo that I just recently found out about and, I must say, I am quite taken aback with how lovely the lyrics in their songs are as well as the haunting nature of the tunes as well. Blood Like Lemonade is a song of their new album of the same name and it is a wonderful bit of musical artistry that tells the story of a once holy man who's wife has sadly passed away. Morcheeba is excellent about telling stories with their songs and the music videos that accompany their work are masterful just the same. Definitely a must see/listen for those from all musical walks of life!
Caspa- Marmite (Doctor P Remix)
I'm a man who loves his dubstep. It is a musical genre that I have recently gotten into and I must say that I truly love how hard hitting, liquid, and truly jarring the genre is. Listening to the Doctor P remix of Caspa's Marmite on a nice, bassy subwoofer is an experience I feel that few should forego in their lives, even if they don't really care for electronic music. It is one of the most amazingly dirty and smashing songs I've ever heard; truly a fine example of how to do dirty electronica right!
And for now, dear reader, I leave you. I hope I have broadened your musical horizons somewhat and gotten you to listen to something that might be somewhat outside your normal musical spectrum!
