Because best things in life aren't things.
Archive for October, 2011
I have gone marking the atlas of your body
with crosses of fire.
My mouth went across: a spider, trying to hide.
In you, behind you, timid, driven by thirst.
Stories to tell you on the shore of evening,
sad and gentle doll, so that you should not be sad.
A swan, a tree, something far away and happy.
The season of grapes, the ripe and fruitful season.
I who lived in a harbor from which I loved you.
The solitude crossed with dream and with silence.
Penned up between the sea and sadness.
Soundless, delirious, between two motionless gondoliers.
Between the lips and the voice something goes dying.
Something with the wings of a bird, something of anguish and oblivion.
The way nets cannot hold water.
My toy doll, only a few drops are left trembling.
Even so, something sings in these fugitive words.
Something sings, something climbs to my ravenous mouth.
Oh to be able to celebrate you with all the words of joy.
Sing, burn, flee, like a belfry at the hands of a madman.
My sad tenderness, what comes over you all at once?
When I have reached the most awesome and the coldest summit
my heart closes like a nocturnal flower.
By Pablo Neruda

American vocalist Marlena Shaw has performed Woman Of The Ghetto at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1973. It has a very soulful and honest feel to it.

Richard X’s remix of Saint Etienne’s Only Love Can Break Your Heart (which itself is a 1990 cover of Neil Young) is melodic ride that resembles the experience of being love-struck. It is beautiful, naive and kind of expected. The euphoria fogs up your judgements and cleanses your senses of all objectivity that, the naive cheesiness of the track actually enhances the overall experience. I heard this heavenly remix very recently as a set opener and I was completely hooked from the very first second. I personally believe the instrumental version gives one the chance of appreciating the melodic subtleties and is also much better suited for dj sets.

Today’s organic track can be considered an oldie in the fast paced electronic music microcosm. It’s from legendary groove-maker Theo Parrish’s Sound Sculptures Volume 1 LP which turned out to be an instant classic. Soul Control, with its dark & hypnotic Detroit-house groove, is one of the most passionate pieces of electronic music I’ve ever heard.
