Black Qualls
by Thundercat feat. Steve Lacy...
(81 plays) | (0 fans)

"No more living in fear..." Thundercat said, "Steve Lacy titled this song. 'Qualls' was just a different way of saying 'walls.' And black walls in the sense of what it means to be a young black male in America right now. A long time ago, black people weren't even allowed to read. If you were caught reading, you’d get killed in front of your family. So growing up being black – we're talking about a couple hundred years later – you learn to hide your wealth and knowledge. You put up these barriers, you protect yourself....You gotta know who you are. It's about this idea that it's okay to be okay."

In The Stone
by The Goon Sax
(46 plays) | (0 fans)

The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane, Australia. https://thegoonsax.bandcamp.com/album/mirror-ii In a press release, band member Louis Forster shared a statement about the origins of this song: “In the Stone” is set in Berlin where I moved with my partner at the time, just after finishing school and recording our last album 'We’re Not Talking' at the end of 2017. We were both exploring ourselves—accepting each other’s changes and celebrating flux—but also reckoning with the complicated need for a solid sense of self and the person we loved. Musically the song was influenced by what was playing in the background of our conversations which often took place in Ubers, supermarkets, outside parties etc. So it probably bears more of a subconsciously absorbed modern pop influence than anything else we’ve done as a band. https://bit.ly/3yxnjpY Watch the lightning flash as the band plays in the live video for "In the Stone": https://youtu.be/GB2pvElMXgs
