Ornette – Sur Le Sable (feat. Mike Ladd)

Tant pis pour moi,
j’ai pas sommeil,
j’attends le soleil…”

It has been a week since I returned from a self-imposed French exile, and this song has been on repeat since I landed in the homeland. French singer Ornette was one of the many things those cool pareeseans taught me. Her follow-up EP Crazy Friends, which was released in april, has a bunch of lovely surprises (like, say… children’s voices accompanying the chorus of a track and a funky cover of Justice‘s On and On). The claps keep this track steady, and Ornette’s loopy voice make a nice contrast with Ladd’s quick raps.

I demand nothing but simply to hold ya’ hand, Goddamn!”

Do us a favor and play this song, remember how good it is to strut aimlessly though the sand and say adieu to the usual Monday headaches. My love goes out to Paris, and all the great people and things that city has to offer.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Avril 2012

t w e n t y o n e songs of Le Miel du Mois! What the f%*k is a Monday blues?

Steph is back with this installment of LMDM and it’s another wonderfully eclectic blend of everything you didn’t even know you loved. Stephs all-embracing approach to music is one of the reasons why LMDM has been and continues to be one of the most interesting mix tapes on any side of the globe. I don’t know about you but I get bored quick fast listening to the same music or style over and over. Musical monogamy is not a concept I can get behind. Our minds are capable of processing anything we throw at it so to limit yourself to just one style of expression or one type of artist is a crime of the highest order. Thankfully, once a month Steph delivers like that perfect lover everyone dreams of – unpredictable, surprising, interesting, risky and totally in tune with your wants and desires at the moment without you having to say a word. Gotta love it.

I have listened to Youth Lagoon on repeat more times than you should really repeat anything in one hour/day/week/month. Same for The Drums,  who are playing in New York this Sunday if you are in NY, go. Other monthly obsessions include the sun and no-reason car rides so I can listen to whatever I’m listening to (probably Youth Lagoon) longer before having to go inside. And here we go…
