Faith Healer
by Julien Baker
(35 plays) | (0 fans)

"Put most simply, I think that ‘Faith Healer’ is a song about vices, both the obvious and the more insidious ways that they show up in the human experience,” Baker explained in a statement, adding that the song is over two years old. “There are so many channels and behaviors that we use to placate discomfort unhealthily which exist outside the formal definition of addiction. I (and so many other people) are willing to believe whomever — a political pundit, a preacher, a drug dealer, an energy healer — when they promise healing, and how that willingness, however genuine, might actually impede healing.” https://www.stereogum.com/2102881/julien-baker-little-oblivions-faith-healer/music/ https://julienbaker.bandcamp.com/album/little-oblivions Watch Julien Baker sharing a live performance recorded exclusively for KEXP and talking to Cheryl Waters.

M/A/R/R/S was a one-off collaboration between members of A.R. Kane (Alex and Rudi Kane) and Colourbox (Martin and Steve Young), both veteran 4AD artists. They took their name from the four collaborator's initials plus that of label boss Ivo Watts-Russell, who suggested they get together. Those four are the credited songwriters on the track. --- This song is made up of about 250 samples. The line, "Pump Up The Volume" came from "I Know You Got Soul" by Eric B. & Rakim, which was released earlier in 1987. Other samples include Coldcut's 1987 song "Say, Kids What Time Is This" and James Brown's "Funky Drummer."

This Oakland duo’s second album is a well-crafted set of dreamy dance-pop inflected with disco, tropicalia, psych-pop and other styles, combining shimmering synths, lush strings, percolating conga drums, airy vocals and soothing melodies.

According to Cherry Glazerr’s Clementine Creevy, “The lyrics came from feeling like I was growing apart from someone who was close to me in my life, and the song is essentially about heartache, but it’s euphoric at the same time.” - https://bit.ly/3uszjax https://cherryglazerr.bandcamp.com/track/big-bang Brand new single from Cherry Glazerr! https://www.cherryglazerr.com/ Enjoy Live Video from Cherry Glazerr's 2019 KEXP In-Studio, hosted by Cheryl Waters: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-zNwHUO3Sg.
