Music for 12/3/19!!! Lido Pimienta, Woolworm, Sudan Archives

@@@ Lido Pimienta: No Pude (Anti-, 2019)  I got to this Latinx single via a music publicist email but Anti- has been putting out a lot of interesting non-white folks music.  I don’t see this track up on Apple Music and I do hate listening on the GooglePimpTube but that’s life.  It’s an electro track in Spanish and there’s a very nice contrast between the beautiful singing and the rather mundane percussion (including a few farts) that percolates and emits underneath her vocals.  This combination is quite fresh as the percussion is both earthy and quite energetic, I dig this tune and I would listen to more of this record if it follows this fresh formula.  There are other sounds in here including a sweet and fat bass pulse, some trumpet, some synths, a lot of vocal tracks and electric sonic goodies.

@@@ Woolworm: Awe (Mint, 2019) #1 on CFUV’s weekly playlist email which I don’t believe has been shat out for a few weeks.  They have a lot of small indie releases on their playlist email so don’t say I don’t give folks tips.  The first tune, the title track (clipped below) is classic noisy guitar power indie.  A sound very familiar with a pleasant if not slighlty detached male singer.  The second tune, Dogman, raises the tempo and the pressure and there is most definitely rocking going on here.  Very Neil Young and Crazy Horse vibes going on.  It’s an energetic rendering of a classic American rock formula.  I’m not super into this classic vanilla flavor but we know for sure there are fans of it out there.  If you want some holiday guitar rock that lies just beneath the mainstream have at it!

@@@ Sudan Archives: Athena (Stones Throw, 2019)  Also off this week’s CFUV playlist email.  I caught a pre-release single that I really dug and I chose this track Athena because I’m just finishing up The Odyssey which I highly recomment to all you ghetto culture fiends.  For those who have not peeped the goddess Athena makes a lot of appearances in the Odyssey.  As I digest the opening bit of the first tune (clipped below) this is a great example of high style r&b.  The beats and bass are foundational and solid but the sauce is the aspirational singing style and the electronic sounds.  It’s funky and high minded.  This notion is further confirmed by the third tune, Black Vivaldi Sonata, and the violin bits on the second tune which was the pre-release single I grooved on.  The singing is potent partially due to it not being overdone but the combination of sounds makes it unique.
