Songhoy Blues says of this song: 'Badala' translates to "I don’t give a sh*t / f*ck / damn," and is inspired by the youth in Mali, especially young women, who are pushing back against patriarchy & societal controls. "They are empowering themselves & taking ownership of their voices, their bodies & their futures. This song celebrates that courage, fearlessness & agency through the story of a woman ending her relationship, and choosing her own destiny." https://songhoyblues.com/

Like a Girl
by Lizzo
(12 plays) | (0 fans)

"“Woke up feelin’ like I just might run for President” is definitely a vibe these days. Lizzo isn’t the first or the only person to throw out a sentiment like this in the last week or two, but she has been the first to follow it up with a smashing song worthy of streaming through the roof. As the second track off of Lizzo’s new album, Cuz I Love You, “Like a Girl” brings up the energy of the album about 10 notches, which is saying something, because it already starts off at around an 11. Following up on the explosive orchestra of the album’s title track, “Like a Girl” propels the album from the realm of the romantic (“I’m cryin’/ ’Cause I love you”) into the world of individuality and power." https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/04/song-of-the-week-lizzo-like-a-girl/

Derek Carr is a name known by few and far between, with only a handful of vinyl releases in the early 2000s, he built a worthy reputation for putting together stunning deep techno.

"ODD CURE is less an album than a humanistic hip-hop musical journal on adapting to life under the early months of the global COVID-19 pandemic."

""Pepper" is an intense psychedelic song, harkening back to the Beatles at the height of their White Album noise, the Velvet Underground at their most incomprehensibly noisy, and to the '60s flower-child scene in general. Tricky ear-candy here includes an electric bass being played with a bow and a portion of the chorus being played backwards. There's also a stark contrast between the rapped verses in a distorted voice and the chorus opening up louder and flashier with each refrain." https://www.songfacts.com/facts/butthole-surfers/pepper

Your Love (Déjà Vu)
by Glass Animals
(5 plays) | (0 fans)

The new track is Glass Animals' first release since 2019's "Tokyo Drifting" -- itself a continuation of the band's ongoing "Fresh Fruit" experimental series of collaborative releases with the likes of Joey Bada$$ and Denzel Curry. “I think we’ve all found ourselves in messed up relationships that make us feel sad and helpless," Bayley said in a statement. "Not necessarily something romantic -- maybe it’s with a family member or a friend. A relationship that we know on some level is going to keep breaking our hearts. We let that person back into their lives over and over again, even though it always ends the same. Maybe you don’t confront it because you hope it’ll change with time. Or because it’s easier to let it slide and never set boundaries. Maybe you think you deserve that unhappiness. Or maybe you find some strange comfort in the chaos.”

Groove Is In The Heart
by Da Lata
(34 plays) | (0 fans)

"In a dance music world fractured into sub genres and micro niches, there are two things that unite global clubbers in love and admiration: a well organised cloakroom, and Deee-Lite’s ‘Groove is in the Heart’, which celebrates its 30th birthday this year. The New York group’s classic track is infectious, euphoric, nigh-on impossible to dislike. Slice ‘Groove is in the Heart’ in two and it bleeds good vibes and rubbery, melodic funk. What makes it all the better is how utterly unlikely the song is, a work of pop art that sounds perfectly of its time and eerily prescient. ‘Groove is in the Heart’ is a patchwork quilt of influences, from funk to house, pop to jazz, that shouldn’t work together but somehow do. Its sample-delic Technicolour sound sits beautifully with the collage art of De La Soul’s 1989 album ‘3 Feet High and Rising’, but also foreshadows the cut-and-paste production puzzles that The Avalanches would make their own two decades later."
