High Alone
by Sevdaliza
(19 plays) | (0 fans)

"High Alone" is from the Iranian-Dutch singer/songwriter's forthcoming EP 'Raving Dahlia,' which is dropped yesterday! "'Raving Dahlia' is a physical creation, born out of frustration, pressure and unmeasurable expectations of a female artist whom needs to endure a career during her development as a woman. Sevdaliza spent the last two years building a physical robot to conceptualize the harsh truth about navigating in the music industry as a woman who does not confirm to the industry standard. Dahlia is the perfect artist." https://bit.ly/3BzQV8l https://sevdaliza.bandcamp.com/ https://sevdaliza.com/

“Fireworks is about resisting the race to extinction. The way life is depicted in media pits us against each other in an archaic battle over resources. If you ingest enough of the age-old tactic divide and conquer, you start thinking singularly when the reality is we are stronger together. You can be part of the race and hope for a good result for yourself or you can remove yourself from it and work together to find ways of living that are sustainable for everyone” https://tresleches.bandcamp.com/track/fireworks

Australian artist Hatchie (Harriette Pilbeam) will be at Neumos on Saturday, May 21st, 2022. -- She says '“Quicksand” is about dealing with the realisation that you’ll never be satisfied. I was feeling guilty and ungrateful for not being happy about a few different things in my life that were technically going well. I had to work through some tough learned thought processes and emotions that had been working away for years to try to understand how to be happy with my present, and stop fixating on my past and future.' : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP5yeegZEsE

On “Rockstar”, Momma sing about the allure of the music industry. “Etta and I wanted to write a song about making it big, and becoming rockstars. We didn’t want to take anything too seriously, lyrically or musically. We just wanted the song to sound big,” the band’s Allegra Weingarten said in a statement. “We thought it would be cool to have our own little rockumentary condensed in a 3-minute music video. It’s also kind of like a manifestation – I think we shamelessly want all of these things to happen in our careers.” https://www.stereogum.com/2177087/momma-rockstar/music/

This 1984 track was Depeche Mode's first hit single in the US. The percussion on this song incorporates various culinary implements. Lead singer Dave Gahan explained: "We used to go into studios, and the first thing we'd do, we'd ask where the kitchen was - literally for pots and pans and things that we could throw down the stairs, and record the rhythms they would make crashing around, and then make it into loops.": https://tinyurl.com/4b5fqksq

You Should Be Dancing
by Bee Gees
(12 plays) | (0 fans)

Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills and Nash played percussion on this track. He recalled to The Independent August 17, 2013: "We were in the studio next door making a CSN album and David (Crosby) was all full of himself and saying this is going to be the album of the year. I went, "No it's not, that's being recorded across the hall," 'cause I'd heard some of that Saturday Night Fever stuff and I knew it was totally unique and going to be a monster. So I played timbales and for a long time that was my only platinum single." https://bit.ly/3tbDvgL Dance dance dance! https://youtu.be/_JoZS6LgqYI
