Michael Jackson – Man in the mirror (Hed Kandi remix) (GPF)
This is a bit cheesy but I kind of like it’s energy. The reason I was reminded of it was that I shared a enjoyable couple of pints with a fellow blogger tonight. They mentioned an entry they had posted “revealing” the fact that Michael Jackson is in fact Nani’s father. Outlandish and humourous stuff!
Tinariwen are a group of Berber musicians from Northern Mali (which I have been reading is a pretty fractious place at present). This is a remix by London DJ Four Tet, who I posted earlier in the year. It is taken from the 2011 release Tassili.
I don’t think I could have conceived a scenario where I would be listening to music like this before starting off my blogging journey. One of the great things about it is that it has taken me to so many places I could never have imagined going to.
Cat Power is an American singer-songwriter who makes music that is both minimal and sometimes melancholic. I had heard lots of good reports about her but nothing had really moved me too strongly before now.
However, I really like this. It is a remix by American-Chilean DJ Nicolas Jaar and is taken from Cat Power’s upcoming album Sun. It is mellow yet full of gravity, it has been soothing my racing mind this week as I continue to adjust to my new surroundings.
