I'm sure they're friends of hers and it's just a way of upping the profile of the thing

she's doing something as Lo Down Loretta Brown here in SF in a few weeks at the Mezzanine, I think...? I won't be able to make it. also the flyer is terrible.

there's what sounds like a new badu/flylo track here, around 20:00 - http://www.gorillavsbear.net/2011/08/05/mp3-thundercat-shenanigans-pt-1-mixtape-mixed-by-flying-lotus/

The one after "Get Munny"? That's from Shafiq Husayn's album.

(Great track, btw.)

ah, thanks. never checked out that record.

hardcore oatmeal (Jordan), Friday, 5 August 2011 18:36 (3 years ago) Permalink

The vocalist sounds a bit like Badu but it's Noni Limar.

There's an alt mix of that album's "Major Heavy" in the mix, too.

Shafiq En' A-Free-Ka is one of my favorite albums of the last few years.

Still sinking into it. It seems waaaaay denser than, for instance, Sa-Ra's last one.

third-generation stripper (Eric H.), Friday, 5 August 2011 19:35 (3 years ago) Permalink

"Dust & Kisses" seems by far its most accessible track.

Temporary hijack. I don't think Erykah would mind (seriously beautiful video):

I complete forgot about that Shafiq Husayn album but it is super dope.

I'm in love with Nuclear Evolution. I'm as of yet just intrigued by Shafiq En' A-Free-Ka.

GQ: What's next thing for you?
Erykah Badu: I'm recording an album right now, with [experimental music producer] Flying Lotus. I'm touring. But things are slowing down now 'cause my children are in school again. [Badu has three children: a son with Andre 3000; a daughter with rapper the D.O.C.; and a daughter with rapper Jay Electronica.] This is the time of year when we all nest in our little home in Dallas and cook breakfast and all those things we been doin' on tour, just in one place. I'm kind of a recluse when it comes to going outside.

GQ: How did you and Flying Lotus hook up?
Erykah Badu: We were talking to each other on MySpace years ago when MySpace was a thing. Social networking was how we hooked up. I told him I'd be in L.A. and he came over to Steve Wilson's house—Stevie is a psychedelic guitar player, a great musician. If both of our worlds can meet and we feel good about it, it's going to be something dope.

I hope this really works out

Haha, I'm guessing this is a case of similar names here, but that would be kind of awesome Porcupine Tree guitarist Steven Wilson was involved in this too.

new song featuring erykah - really nice, jazzy, gonna check this project out when it drops (think robert glasper's been working with king as well)

gonna see glasper with bilal and co. (fingers crossed maybe erykah or lupe and folks) in late feb; looking forward to that show a lot.

Was on Letterman this week doing something fucking awesome.

Interview also says that her next album comes out 4th Quarter 2012 - so we should probably expect it by February 2013.

Somewhere between Fergie and Jesus (Alex in Montreal), Friday, 17 February 2012 21:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

they're probably regretting printing the sleeve on such oil-resistant card though, right

john-claude van donne (schlump), Friday, 17 February 2012 21:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

hm?

the original recorded version has Yasiin Bey/Mos Def on it also.

Somewhere between Fergie and Jesus (Alex in Montreal), Friday, 17 February 2012 21:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

i wonder what her next record is. like the flying lotus one i guess, sooner than loretta brown? & when the Cannabinoids record is.

xp oh i just meant that letterman holds up a grossly fingerprint smudged lp sleeve

john-claude van donne (schlump), Friday, 17 February 2012 21:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

this whole setup is super lame, but she sounds great:

40oz of tears (Jordan), Friday, 17 February 2012 22:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

Are the Cannabinoids just her back up band? Or is there like an ALBUM she is specifically making with them?

Somewhere between Fergie and Jesus (Alex in Montreal), Friday, 17 February 2012 22:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

reviews from the shows say that they're playing remodelled erykah jams & a bunch of their own stuff. some stuff that erykah does sorta non-authorially doesn't totally do it for me even though it ticks a lot of boxes, like the letterman thing above or the recent blue note thing, which was super nice but just didn't have the focus of her records. like hearing that she's in a group w/tony allen & damon albarn makes me feel like it'll be some nice sounding record that doesn't do anything for me, but who knows, i'm maybe just less into her guest spots than some ppl

that interview is awesome; thanks Alex for posting it

the whole robert glasper album is excellent, surprised there hasn't been more discussion on ILM

what, even the Nirvana cover lex?

Number None, Friday, 23 March 2012 13:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

yes! the second cover of that song i love. totally transforms the shitty original

lex pretend, Friday, 23 March 2012 14:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

i talked a little about it on a jazz thread, but it's kinda boring and safe. i'm happy to listen to chris dave play beats for an hour, but it seems like it's in this weird middle ground between a 'real' song-focused r&b record and a jazz/musician's record where the trio gets to go hard, so it's not quite satisfying in either sense. it almost feels like a demo reel for them to get even more gigs backing up great vocalists.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Friday, 23 March 2012 15:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

maybe i need to give it another shot

40oz of tears (Jordan), Friday, 23 March 2012 15:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

jordan you are the first person i've heard who agrees with me about this! i like it but i don't love it, and i've thought it was my fault until now. not enough variation, i think -- for me, esperanza spalding's 'radio music society' is what 'black radio' thinks it is.

I listened to the first song and was not wowed, and meant to get back to it but haven't.
