I saw him live last year at First Avenue and have been a fan ever since. The new album is pretty wonderful. He's from Somalia and based in Toronto. Where will he go from here?

My take so far:

classic. haven't heard the new one, but the previous one was great.

the lexx of extreme metal (Ioannis), Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:06 (thirteen years ago) link

New one is even better, I think so far.

xhuxk, Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:08 (thirteen years ago) link

awesome!

the lexx of extreme metal (Ioannis), Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:12 (thirteen years ago) link

I was a little nervous, because I thought a couple of the duller tracks on Dusty Foot Philosopher (which I reviewed for emusic) were ones that had apparently been added since its initial Canadian release a couple years before, indicating that he may have peaked real early. But apparently not.

xhuxk, Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:14 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, I think it's an art-record-pop-record progression, with the pop record being the better art.

Pete Scholtes, Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:54 (thirteen years ago) link

I like it less now than I did in August. Some of the beats and music are fresher than the rhymes, which often devolve into second-tier Eminem.

The Screaming Lobster of Challops (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:56 (thirteen years ago) link

You mean the debut, Alfred? (I actually heard more second tier Eminem on that one than on the new one, I think.) Do get the idea that the new one may work in less African music (which I guess is part of what made the debut "arty"); not sure if that's a good thing.

xhuxk, Wednesday, 11 February 2009 17:58 (thirteen years ago) link

his 2nd-tier Em was pretty darn good, tho. too bad about the lack of African sounds on the new one, if that's actually the case.

the lexx of extreme metal (Ioannis), Wednesday, 11 February 2009 19:19 (thirteen years ago) link

There's plenty of songs from the African sounds, though: "The African Way," "Hoobale," "Until the Lion Learns to Speak."

Those are from the Dusty Foot Philosopher that was reissued this year, but came out first in 2006. Then he put a live cd out in 2007, On the Road. The new new one Troubadour has some African music elements on it but not alot. Chubb Rock is on one song, Damian Marley on another, Adam Levine, and Mos Def also.

I CAN'T TAKE THE RONG!!! (The Reverend), Tuesday, 24 February 2009 03:01 (thirteen years ago) link

The half of the album I listened to is pretty good!

I naturally want to lump him in with softest-serve ecleftic white-guilt critical picks like early Black Eyed Peas and K-Os and Arrested Development, because that's clearly the type of audience he's gonna get in America. But, a) it's really hard to do that since his shit is gritty as hell and about gun violence and how it's even shittier in Africa than in American/Canadian inner cities. And b) the half of the album I listened to is all upbeat and party-centric and not a bunch of hippie shit.

And besides, i'll fuck with a little Black Eyed Peas and K-Os and Arrested Development in small doses because the real problem with those groups isn't that they suck or anything, it's that there's a group of nerdlingers who go OMG HOW CAN YOU LISTEN TO JAY-Z WHEN WE HAVE THIS?! that create instant backlash from hip-hop heads and ruin it for everyone and make it embarrassing for ringtone cru type people to even approach stuff like that on a critical level beyond LOL PATCHOULI.

The album is way better than those covers let on, dude is clearly trying to make every song a hit, and I actually feel bad for sleeping so long. Sorry, K'Naan.

That's how I break it down to an extent.

Pete Scholtes, Wednesday, 25 February 2009 21:38 (thirteen years ago) link

Both albums have a bunch of stuff that just sounds silly to me, but I think the original version of "If Rap Gets Jealous" is great, in the kind of the genre-less way of "We Will Rock You" or "We Care a Lot" or even "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand". Sadly, I think the Hammett-adorned remake is almost definitively charmless. But man, if that first version could be on a 45 with the new album's "Fatima" (half "Biko", and maybe a quarter "Luka") as the b-side, and I were 14 again, it'd be the great thing I ever heard for at least a month.

glenn mcdonald, Thursday, 26 February 2009 02:18 (thirteen years ago) link

So, wait, how much of this new album incorporates The Dusty Foot Philosopher, or does it include totally unfamiliar/rerecorded material?

The Screaming Lobster of Challops (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Thursday, 26 February 2009 02:31 (thirteen years ago) link

I've been bumping the old one in regular rotation for weeks and the new one is just n/l. The first half-dozen or so are straight, as the kids say, fire, and the back several take it home. Sure, if rap gets jealous is very production-y, not as organic as the better original, but it's still a great tune. And yeah, I love that dude doesn't care about rules and goes melodic without even wyclef's self-consciousness. Best thing I've heard in a while.

double bird strike (gabbneb), Thursday, 26 February 2009 02:48 (thirteen years ago) link

Loved Dusty Foot Philosopher. The cleaner production on the new one and the distillation/removal of the blatant African sonic influences was a bit jarring at first, but whatever Troubadour lacks in comparison to the first album, it makes up for in droves with creativity, sonic inventiveness and the pure-wtf-ness of the Kirk Hammett version of "If Rap Gets Jealous".

xxxxp Plus, k-os isn't that bad once he drops his self-important save-rap-from-gangsterism somewhere in the murk of Joyful Rebellion/Atlantis and just starts making straight up hip-hop/rock/pop/disco/whatever fusion tracks.

Has anyone else heard/seen the mixtape? It's called You Can't Buy This (and you can't--I got mine off a windowsill at a local CD shop), 8 songs, 33 minutes. The obvious favorite is "Kicked, Pushed," about racist police brutality in Amsterdam (and, duh, using Lupe Fiasco's beat).

More Xgau:

K'naan
"Troubadour"
(A&M/Octone)

What makes K'naan's hip-hop Somalian is less the authenticating stories he tells than the atmospheric samples he claims -- after a snatch of Marley ska, the borrowed stuff is all Buda Musique swing from up Addis Ababa way. But lest you think him a do-gooders' rehab project like Emmanuel Jal or Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars, be hereby informed that when this ambitious and optimistic fellow talks "song hook," he knows whereof he speaks -- just as he does when he rhymes in the English he learned as a teenager, though I hope he outgrows "Somalia"'s -ation rhymes. Chubb Rock and Mos Def cameos are about it for his hip-hop cred, but Damian Marley-Adam Levine-Kirk Hammett is a pretty good pass at pop cred. Not that they guarantee sales. But after what K'naan has been through, bless him for trying -- the ebullience he extracts from a life much tougher than North Americans can know is worthy of soukous, mbaqanga, the highlife of Ghana's most punishing inflationary spiral. Spiritually Afropop, rhythmically Ameripop -- instead of hip-hop, maybe we should call it rap. He likes the word fine himself.

I love the new album. I think from tracks #3 -> #12 are a pretty perfect run. I don't dig ABC's or 15 Minutes Away quite as much as the rest of the album.

Also, against my better judgement: Has anyone else noticed the Jewish lyrical references throughout the album? Not, as someone suggested, the ubiquitous Rastafarian-styled Old Testament references, but actual post-Biblical Jewish references (Bar Mitzvah, dancing the hora (not as sure about this one), L'Chaim... On "Bang, Bang," he rhymes: "A very Western toaster, / She ain’t nothing Kosher," tho that might just be for Adam Levine's benefit. I'm curious though where all these more-or-less Ashkenazi lines are coming from. (Maybe his lawyer? I remember him mentioning his lawyer with a very Jewish-sounding name on one of the tracks. Like Sam Grossman, or something.)

The-Reverend (rev), Tuesday, 10 March 2009 19:05 (thirteen years ago) link

I don't generally complain about Pitchfork reviews (and I won't here), but I think there's something very telling in today's review in terms of how people tend to deal with "foreign" music, and particularly with K'naan. In particular, the complaint seems to be that K'naan doesn't allow listeners to be tourists, and Joshua Love complains that "Still, I wish I left Troubadour feeling like I knew more about Somalia than I did going in, and I'm not entirely sure that's the case," as though K'naan's obligation is to teach his fans about Somalia, and not just that he's an artist who incidentally comes from Somalia.

Mordy, Friday, 13 March 2009 15:03 (thirteen years ago) link

Josh is a friend, so you don't have to accept this defense, but the review points out how K'naan's talent for conjuring Somali life in his other work led Josh to expect something similar here.

The Screaming Lobster of Challops (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 13 March 2009 15:10 (thirteen years ago) link

I don't see why expectations deferred, or subverted, are necessarily a critique.

Why not?

The Screaming Lobster of Challops (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 13 March 2009 15:21 (thirteen years ago) link

I take issue with "necessarily."

The Screaming Lobster of Challops (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Friday, 13 March 2009 15:21 (thirteen years ago) link

I guess I just feel uncomfortable with the formulation. K'naan is either being colonized as a Somalian (please give us a tour thru Somalia and teach us about your country) or as an artist (please fulfill my expectations: I want A, please deliver it), but I expect more from a music critic. At least a willingness to play with the album on its own terms. And I think the language suggests this when it says, "What's worse, someone decided this coming-out party needed a dose of star power..." as though K'naan is at the mercy of his handlers and would he be allowed to simply make his own album we'd have a wonderful native thing. But since he's been corrupted by "someone [who] decided" and this "star power," his Somalianism is being undermined.

Mordy, Friday, 13 March 2009 15:26 (thirteen years ago) link

And it's totally bizarre that he describes "Fatima" as a Slumdog-esque song when, as far as I can tell, there's no Indian-pop in the song. So he's noting a love story narrative in a war zone. But certainly Slumdog isn't the first (or most striking) example of one of those. But both India and Somalia are somewhat exotic places for a US listener.

Mordy, Friday, 13 March 2009 15:28 (thirteen years ago) link

good review; lousy closing line. that's how i'd rate that Pitchfork piece. i mean, c'mon, it's not like K'naan's obliged to school us poor, deprived westerners re: the horrors of living in Somalia (then or now). "a cheap holiday in other people's misery" anyone? why yes, i'll take two, thank you very much.

\m/ suggest ban to hell \m/ (Ioannis), Friday, 13 March 2009 16:24 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, that is a terrible last line. The rest of the review, though, was pretty great. I like some of the songs Mr. Love doesn't, and don't like some he does, but we're precisely agreed on the general nature of the album, and I thought he got the characterizations of each of the cameos he mentions spot-on.

At's OK; at his best K'naan's as good as anyone. Somehow I hope BIG SUCCESS eludes him for a while yet so he's got some genuine material left for the difficult third album and it's not all about the gold cadillac he gave to his third ex-wife in six months... but I don't see how it can - "Dreamer" sounds like the monster hit of Summer '09 to me.

staggerlee, Friday, 13 March 2009 23:52 (thirteen years ago) link

seven months pass...

Troubadour persisted through the summer. Saw him live twice a few months back and he and his band really have good chemistry. They let a lot of the numbers stretch out into longer jams. Not afraid to slow them down/switch them up/totally rewrite them/turn them into poetry slams live, as the crowd and his whim dictates. His self-proclaimed debt to Fela Kuti really shone through at moments in the best way possible. Also, the band was really tight.

Anyway, revived more to ask if any of y'all have heard his new mixtape series with J. Period, The Messengers. It's a three volume tribute to Fela, Bob Marley and Bob Dylan where he remixes a bunch of their stuff with new and old verses, contextualizes his influences and throws them all together into a mesmerizing soup.

Mordy, Tuesday, 13 October 2009 02:59 (twelve years ago) link

(More than potentially! I'd been idly jamming them volume by volume but they just released the all-in-one thing and it's really something else. about 50/50 new/old verses from K'naan but it's really next level, and something that balances out my initial unease with the pristine & sanitized feel of Troubadour)

Mordy, Tuesday, 13 October 2009 03:13 (twelve years ago) link

You Can't Buy This wasn't designed AS a mixtape per se...more of an odds'n'sods collection

It had the original version of Troubadour's 'Somalia' that he decided was too depressing to put on the album, an MTV Live song he improvised w/ Nelly Furtado, his website-only Kicked, Pushed freestyle and some tracks that he featured on from other people's albums (Amadou + Mariam, Mos Def, M-1).

This is a coherent listen front-to-back, much more comparable to say....Rhymefest's Man in the Mirror or other mixtapes that are designed to be heard as albums and not as disparate collections of leaks or leftovers. So yes, better, but also very different.

actually, not just a live thing. great ear for a pop hook and a constant willingness to experiment. maybe that makes him npr-rap or HEY GUYS I'M WHITE-bait, but like...he has a strong voice and the tunes are good enough that i don't give a shit. ymmv.
