Hey Hey Stranger
I hear that they call you the lone ranger
They say you love to live in the saddle
Is it true you want to high ho my silver
Giddy up you can try lawd have mercy
I will take that ride with you
I’m mighty thirsty

For love any kind of love but I do prefer
That it be good love
Hey hey stranger
I hear I fear my heart might be in danger
They say that you’re a fast shootin’ papa
And when you want it you take it just like an outlaw
Giddy up you can try lawd have mercy
I will take that ride with you I’m mighty thirsty

For a man any kind of man but I do prefer
That it be a good man
Hey hey stranger
I hear that they call you the lone ranger
They say you love to love in the saddle
Well when I’m through with you
You’re ridin days will be over
Giddy up you can try lawd have mercy
I will take that ride with you I’m mighty thirsty
Giddy up you can try lawd have mercy
I will take that ride with you I’m mighty thirsty
Giddy up you can try lawd have mercy
I will take that ride with you I’m mighty thirsty
I will take that ride with you I’m mighty thirsty
Is it true you want to high ho my silver
Is it true you want to high ho my silver
It’s so good it’s so good

Sampha

Don’t fail me now, I need your wishes, wishes, wishes
Don’t fail me now, I need your wishes, wishes, wishes
I imagine those golden skies
Window down and we’re caught in flight
You can let the breeze, let the breeze cool you
And I hope the wind blows out those fires of doubt
If there’s a monster inside of you
Well, I’m gonna keep it clear
I wish it would take all its things and go
There’s no more we need to know
But fade out lover, yeah
We need time to recover, yeah
Or you can have a wish, have a wish on me, me, me
(I know it makes you feel at ease, how could I disagree)
If there’s a monster inside of you
Well, I’m gonna keep it clear
I wish it would take all its things and go
There’s no more we need to know
We suppress concerns habitually
You take away that apathy
It means you mean somethin’ to me
I need assistance beyond my dreams
A fire beneath the dream
A calm sea in anarchy
How do you smile, you smile at ease
My desire burns beneath
Don’t fail me now, I need your wishes, wishes, wishes
Don’t fail me now, I need your wishes, wishes, wishes
If there’s a monster inside of you
Well, I’m gonna keep it clear
I wish it would take all its things and go
There’s no more we need to know

Mbongwana Star

“Mbongwana Star (‘Mbongwana’ meaning ‘change’) are a newly formed band from Kinshasa, Congo. Tired of the pre-conceptions around African music, they’re creating their own identity, fusing traditional Congolese rhythms with post punk and electronics. Full of energy and utterly original, here’s a brand new track from their forthcoming album.”

Liking the trippy psychedelic grooves. On the wish list.

It’s great to learn that Congolese musicians are fighting against ‘pre-conceptions’ about African music.

And what, with all the heinous activity happening out it’s great to hear such well crafted music. Enjoy!

Developed the ‘Push and Pull’ ting some more. Quite like where it’s going, getting darker, a real challenge today considering I was in such a good mood.

Headphones, don’t bother playing through tinny speakers. As requested have put more of a beat behind it. A lot of tidying and quantising to do, sonically too, everything is competing. Got a session with a mix down pro. Can’t wait!

holidays

Spent the month away from the Midlands.

Started southside in Hastings with my beautiful friends Debs and Ben. I taught EFL in a beautiful school, swimming twice a week early each morning in the outdoor pool. I went from coughing, spluttering and wheezing (after just two lengths) to a much improved front crawl (and a minimum of 10). We visited Brighton, ate at a Thai restaurant set in a bookshop, made loads of nice veggie food and went on nice country walks. I am trying to be vegetarian. This is not easy.  Continue reading “holidays”
