hi I'm tyler farrar, quitter of team garmin-transitions (cozen), Friday, 16 July 2010 21:00 (ten years ago) link

some discussion of them here: itt: kinda out there, maybe kinda experimental, maybe kinda pretentious modern r&b

Mister AOR (The Reverend), Saturday, 17 July 2010 09:30 (ten years ago) link

I like this. Such an Andy K record!!

Tim F, Saturday, 17 July 2010 09:44 (ten years ago) link

love this, it's about all i can stand to listen to during the more traumatic summer hangovers - tremendously soothing and restorative

driving today in 90-plus heat, this was the perfect soundtrack. all cool and melted.

As I mentioned in some other thread where Quadron was brought up, people don't be sleeping on Robin Hannibal.

Parallel Dance Ensemble "Weight Watchers" (which actually contains the exact same members as Quadron)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQRJTVraV1M

And also Owusu & Hannibal, Non + and other various remixing and production work.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 24 July 2010 23:49 (ten years ago) link

Oh, I just found a Non + video (that's hard to search for on youtube)

Feeling this

They just played in San Jose last week and I totally slept. Kicking myself.

yeah, this is total jaxonbait

"Weight Watchers," haha:

Really dug a few songs on Living With... when it came out, but something about the Quadron album unlocked the whole thing.

Andy K, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 11:52 (ten years ago) link

Yeah, Living With... wasn't perfect by any means. But now that he's kind of refined the idea with Quadron, I'm really excited about whatever the next Owusu & Hannibal album is.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 11:53 (ten years ago) link

Play "Weight Watchers," "Candy Man," Dam-Funk's "Candy Dancin'" simultaneously -> Rick James will come back from the dead

There's a new Parallel Dance Ensemble ep. Here's the single:

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 24 March 2011 23:50 (ten years ago) link

I clearly missed something here. Will keep it in mind when shopping tomorrow...

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 24 March 2011 23:52 (ten years ago) link

All this time I thought the Coco in Parallel Dance Ensemble and the Coco in Quadron were the same Coco. Turns out they aren't! Robin Hannibal just likes to work with talented women named Coco it appears.

Finally listening to the new PDE thing and it's great. Hope people don't sleep on it.

i am utterly smitten with Hey Love, probably played about two dozen times this past week
they're playing in Central park this season, looking forward.

How did I miss Hey Love, I will have to go check it out.

i also missed this! it's good, bit more forthright than i was expecting

flamenco drop (lex pretend), Monday, 22 April 2013 20:43 (eight years ago) link

huh you know when you hear a song and then you like it and then a few plays later (inc a watch of its amazing video) you realise you're head over heels with it, that just happened

flamenco drop (lex pretend), Monday, 22 April 2013 20:57 (eight years ago) link

wasn't huge on the first album but i *love* this song

Salt Mama Celeste (donna rouge), Monday, 22 April 2013 21:18 (eight years ago) link

Between this and Rhye's "The Fall", dude seems to have a thing for "La Ritournelle".

brb buying poppers w/my employee discount (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 23 April 2013 04:21 (eight years ago) link

can we talk about how much fun the video looks as well

i think my favourite bit is the sudden tempo switch at 1:47

flamenco drop (lex pretend), Tuesday, 23 April 2013 11:54 (eight years ago) link

not to continue to go on about this song but it literally made me dance all the way down the street in the sunshine just now

Ned Raggett, Monday, 29 April 2013 19:04 (eight years ago) link

I always liked these guys but this new single seems to be taking it up a level.

This version of "Ex Factor" is stunning:

Whoa, I missed the last bump. Great song. I assume another album is coming?

Michael F Gill, Monday, 13 May 2013 02:52 (seven years ago) link

Yeah, it's due on June 4. Here is a really good acoustic version of "Hey Love" (you would think I was on a street team or something):

good lookin' out.

okay, i love this

monotony, Wednesday, 29 May 2013 05:11 (seven years ago) link

yeah, i'm enjoying this as an album. a few clunkers but overall worth repping for.

i didn't even give much of a fuck that you were mod (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 29 May 2013 05:24 (seven years ago) link

Yeah this is great. I didn't really get into the first album apart from a few tracks (mainly Slippin') but this one I enjoyed all the way through. A couple of times her vocals reminded me of Syreeta which is obviously no bad thing.

Kitchen Person, Wednesday, 29 May 2013 06:25 (seven years ago) link

ah what a pleasure this album is

r|t|c, Tuesday, 4 June 2013 22:56 (seven years ago) link

what a splendid voice this lady has. so expressive and rich.

monotony, Wednesday, 5 June 2013 02:39 (seven years ago) link

yeah this album is just lovely basically - a bit unlike the debut which worked really well as an overall mood piece (several of the strongs were song obv but none overshadowed the album, and i always listened to it as a whole); here, "hey love" is the obvious Big Tune and the mood is much less heavy/sultry, more playful (ie i doubt this'll be my go-to album for summer hangovers like the debut was). but it's great, yeah

Ha, I just came here to say that I like "Hey Love" just fine, but it's not the highlight of the album for me.

Murder in the Rue McClanahan (jaymc), Monday, 8 July 2013 22:05 (seven years ago) link

I really like the album, it is a lot better than the Rhye album. She can *really* sing.

on board!

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 23 July 2013 21:21 (seven years ago) link

Ok I like hey love now but my fave joints are still the first 2 + the Kendrick song

suggest bando (The Reverend), Tuesday, 23 July 2013 21:43 (seven years ago) link

all about that beating heart of 'neverland' and 'it's gonna get you' 4 me

kendrick showing kinda breaks the spell a lil bit imo

r|t|c, Tuesday, 23 July 2013 22:07 (seven years ago) link

saw them tonight in the park and they were great. Even better live, like by far.
I worked a bit negotiating press with Coco and gave her a bowl. I got a hug and a nice Facebook photo.

sassy, fun, and RELATABLE (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 28 July 2013 03:23 (seven years ago) link

This album is creeping up my albums of the year list every time I play it.

2.25 into Crush is probably my favourite bit of music this year. It's Gonna Get You is possibly my favourite song, it reminds me so much of the first two Syreeta albums. Avalanche is another great one, beautiful end to a really great album.

Kitchen Person, Sunday, 28 July 2013 04:42 (seven years ago) link

three months pass...

saw them tonight in a tiiiiny venue in belleville. woah! coco can saaaang. she did an incredible cover of lauryn hill's "ex-factor". also went on a strange rant early in the show thanking everyone for letting her music spread via word-of-mouth and not through her "getting naked on a wrecking ball".

album is still v. enjoyable.

monotony, Thursday, 14 November 2013 22:02 (seven years ago) link

coco is a monster live no doubt.
i gave her a bowl i threw when she played out at $ummer$tage and got hugs. def high point of the season.
pottery.

Not only is Coco such a star but she has great taste in men too.

Was in a coffee shop in Salt Lake City last week, glorious spring day, some kind soul playing the second album on repeat.

bentelec, Tuesday, 29 March 2016 01:45 (five years ago) link

I used to play Avalanche a lot in the coffee shop I worked in at the time of its release.

Hey (Extended Mix), Tuesday, 29 March 2016 04:19 (five years ago) link

i've been listening to rhye way more in the last year than i ever thought i would

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 29 March 2016 04:39 (five years ago) link

totally forgot about rhye

just sayin, Tuesday, 29 March 2016 05:10 (five years ago) link

I saw Rhye in concert about six months ago and they were really amazing, including a dude playing a violin like Nile Rodgers

Tim F, Tuesday, 29 March 2016 06:43 (five years ago) link

oh shit they played in sydney too & i hadnt realised :-/

Avalanche is just about a perfect record. I'm ready for more.

So - it looks like Quadron are on hiatus for the time being, but Coco O. put a 2-song EP called Dolceaqua out on Friday.

The arrangements are probably just a little too temperate for my taste but at the same time she's the sort of singer who sounds nice over anything.

This is really sleepy stuff.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 27 May 2018 13:43 (two years ago) link

She is also on the first track of the last CTM record which is quite good. A bit like a mix of Bark Psychosis and FKA Twigs.
