Ela Minus' debut album is a collection about the personal as political and embracing the beauty of tiny acts of revolution in our everyday lives. Throughout the album is a sense of urgency and a call to arms mixed with this love and appreciation for reality - because even revolutionaries need to leave space for simple human interaction. https://elaminus.com/

"Cloudbusting" is about the very close relationship between psychologist and philosopher Wilhelm Reich and his young son, Peter, told from the point of view of the mature Peter. It describes the boy's memories of his life with Reich on their family farm, called Orgonon where the two spent time "cloudbusting", a rain-making process which involved using a machine designed and built by Reich - a machine called a cloudbuster - to point at the sky. The song was inspired by Peter Reich's 1973 memoir, 'A Book of Dreams'.

Sun More Often
by Beabadobee
(12 plays) | (0 fans)

Where'd the name come from? You may wonder. Bea Kristi, the British singer-songwriter behind Beabadoobee, says “Long story short, I obviously didn’t expect any of this to happen, so when it came time to put [mysongs] online, my friend Oscar was like, ‘You have to choose a name,’ and I didn’t have one, so I told him to use my Finsta name, Beabadoobee. Now it’s with me for the rest of my life.” Oops! More info in this Variety piece on the artist: https://variety.com/2020/music/news/beabadoobee-coffee-in-your-head-1234806561/

I can't stop watching the video for this track. This YouTube comment summarizes it pretty neatly: "Came for Snake Plisskin, stayed for the bat-lacrosse-motor-derby-foot-murder-robo-ball." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DgAfs4FutI
