Sita Sings The Blues

Has an interesting mix of animation, Indonesian shadow puppet work and 1920's era jazz. Animator Nina Paley's indulges us in her own interpretation of the Hindu epic Ramayana
"the greatest break-up story ever told" and set it to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw to imaginative effect...The eclectic cultural tapestry that is Sita Sings the Blues, is an 82-minute feature that combines autobiography with a retelling of the classic Indian myth..Betty Boop rocks and you know it!

Be Strong

First heard dropped by that crafty casual DJ Ross Allen, a cracking piece of jackmyfunkysoul house muzik with bags of humour and a big bouncy bassline from out of the woods Sarf London lads Joe Goddard(Hot Chip) & DJ Raf Daddy (AKA the2bears). Their debut EP on Southern Fried Records includes 2 original tracks with 'Be Strong' a nod to London soundsystem culture, that's rockin' all over the mt@o HQ and a stunning rework of Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me” and a cover of Sade “When Am I Going To Make a Living”. Excellente! my dear bears..

What if we all stopped paying taxes!

So the financial crisis afflicting Greece and the rest of Europe is spiraling out of control as our so-called leaders agree to a nearly $1 trillion, yeah you read that right, ONE FREAKING TRILLION DOLLARS rescue package of taxpayers money aimed at helping out the weak Euro economies..and as we keep printing money out of thin air the only result will be hyper-inflation on the same scale as Germany in the 3T's...It's gonna get rough out there people.

So what if we all just stopped funding our Governments who in turn are bending over backwards for the criminal banksters to shaft us some more?.....Just a thought!

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings sum it up perfectly..

Prior to their recently released LP 'Speculation' - To Rococo Rot had a limited edition/500 copies only, remix EP out on Domino containing mixes by Shackleton & Traversable Wormhole and including their own album version of 'Forwardness'. Here Shackleton who has been carving out his own brand of eclecticism on numerous releases, delivers a deep dubbed out snaking percussive driver of a tune and possibly his finest remix to date..Apparently the remix was mastered at the world famous Dubplates in Berlin....Now that's worth it!...

Keep On Dreaming

Dreamer Keep On Dreaming EP on Musique Risquée is the 3rd and brand new offering from the producer, The Mole..and "Last Ditch" is the sort of warm minimal house muzik that grooves me right now...taking an inspiration loop from Earth, Wind & Fire and riding the storm with it.

Anyone know the EWF sample? comments please.

"Oh my stomach" sounds like a moodyman/parish soul chugger and is the right one for some late night funky business....nice!
