This track is amazing, why have I not been paying more attention to this woman?

Um. So the Euro edition of Complex Simplicity had a Truth Hurts/Raphael Saadiq featuring remix of Be Your Girl that samples Juicy Fruit?

Was this something we all knew about except me?

yup, always loved that - feels like a quiet, understated triumph in contrast to the original's pleading neediness. the UK album also had this excellent song on it, if anyone's not heard it

Both of these tracks are news to me, but I'm always learning things from ILM.

along the lines of 'still your girl' there was also this exactly what you'd expect but still dece mix of 'you'll never find' interpolating 'everybody loves the sunshine'

kinda dressed itself as a bootleg but as tvt themselves put it out on the low i would suspect it's canon

this link to a mix it's in still works:

just lookin at discogs i'd forgotten ne-yo had a hand in a lot of complex simplicity before he'd got big

makes excellent sense obv

did not know that! is he credited for anything besides 'vocal arrangement' per wiki? seems like such a lost opportunity that he hasn't gone back and worked with teedra more since then

not per discogs - do have the cd in a box somewhere but i doubt anything else is there to be found really

http://www.songwriteruniverse.com/ne-yo.htm

in this interview he says he met scott storch while working on it, and then came 'let me love you', then etc

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 14:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

I didn't know about Ne-Yo either!

More reasons to love Complex Simplicity.

Tim F, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

something i didnt know wot i only learned today: according to wiki ne-yo "...helped with the musical arrangement on the Teedra Moses debut Complex Simplicity."

cool huh

Is that Teairra Marí album any good? Really liking that song.

gulp

um guys i just tried putting complex simplicity on, yknow like we all do once a year

and uh my brain is all is this katy b? idk man, sounds a lot like katy b

this is shaking me to my core

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's katy b.

yah but stick 'caution' on tho

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

Thanks, Lex; checking it out right now.

And I think I've said this before, but I'm pretty sure Katy B is not a thing that exists in America.

Evan R, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

haha well katy's been going on about what a genius teedra is since forever! so i have had these thoughts. it's more apparent in the songwriting, you know that deceptively casual way of phrasing something then dropping a really startlingly poetic image in the middle of it, than the singing

lex pretend, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm pretty sure Katy B is not a thing that exists in America.

it took a while but lots of US journalists started talking about her last year.

lex pretend, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've heard "Lights On" on US radio.

oh wow so she has

ULTIMATE CULT HEROES
5. TEEDRA MOSES
Chosen by: Katy B
When I was about 15 my friend’s dad was always in touch with new soul records. He put his daughter onto Teedra Moses and we rinsed the life out of ‘Complex Simplicity’. She’s been out of the loop since her record label went bust, and has been writing for other artists and releasing mixtapes. But you know what? I want a new album, Teedra!

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

they're singing does seems similar though in that they both have a remarkable clarity in their voices

prolego, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

^ yes. it's also true what lex said about the songwriting but you can also hear little moments where the capabilities of their voices converge and theyre just alike

seems very obviously an album katy has been karaokeing since forever

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah but Katy B is a boring, middle of the road Noxzema girl pop singer, while Teedra Moses is, you know, interesting and talented

Evan R, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

do i have to break out snoop.gif for the second time today?

TALiB KWELi SODMG (The Reverend), Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah guess she can't push the envelope to its very bleeding edge like miguel does every single time huh

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

i was just about to type almost exactly that sentence except with grimes, though miguel works too

lex pretend, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

hahaha, ok, I'll back down from the Katy B bashing. I shouldn't try to troll too hard about an artist I clearly don't understand (and probably wasn't meant to understand) anyway.

Evan R, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

miguel is amazing tho. please leave the playing yourselves to evan.

TALiB KWELi SODMG (The Reverend), Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

girl u know i love miguel, doesnt change the fact that what evan said about him was snoopgif-worthy

r|t|c, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah, I would hate to see my precious miguel/grimes get caught in the crossfire because of my own impudence... snoop.gif me, but let the music go free

Evan R, Wednesday, 4 April 2012 21:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

That Teairra Marí album is really nice; definitely going to order one of the $0.24 used copies of it from Amazon
