#Cmontigre The name Afroamericans gave to this dirty style of music was funk in reference to the body odor produced while in a state of excitation. That's what we do.
Tradition and experimentation are two familiar territories that C'mon Tigre, a duo who find their identity by working with musicians from all over the world, can balance between very well. As they did for their debut album (2014), they have put together a multicolored collective for their second record "Racines", out on February 8, 2019 for BDC /! K7.
The title is a French word that means "roots", referring to the musical roots in which C'mon Tigre's feet, head and heart are im-mersed, and from which their contaminated tracks sprout to create unusual and original sound environments. In their new album the sounds of the Mediterranean - the sea of their land - intersect, intertwine and overlap with a kaleidoscope of other sounds and a new approach based - they explain - "on the type of work we had done when we rearranged the first album for live shows, by em-phasizing the synthetic part of our tracks ". This time around they did it from the very beginning: "The composition of the pieces im-mediately included the use of machines and synthesizers as a basis for acoustic instruments. The goal was to reprocess the terrain of Mediterranean influences that was undoubtedly our starting point ".
The ten tracks of "Racines" were born in moments of intimacy: for C'mon Tigre the initial core of compositional ideas must strictly belong to the dimension of instinct, of naturalness. But then there is that urgency to let the nucleus explode and give life to other ideas and suggestions, and for this to happen the exchange with other musicians and the creation of an extended and geographically sprawling family is fundamental. Hence the involvement, in "Racines", of Danny Ray Barragan aka DRB, Mick Jenkins, PasqualeMirra, Beppe Scardino, Mirko Cisilino, Marco Frattini, Jessica Lurie, Amy Denio, Tina Richerson, Sue Orfield, Alessandro Rinaldi, Henkjaap Beeuwkes.
Imagine a work in progress where bass and guitars interact with woodwind, synths, percussions, vibraphones, dipping the listener into a sensual and hypnotic musical journey. Sailing from the Mediterranean basin and being guided by the fascination for Africa and the Middle East, C'mon Tigre give rise to a personal language, made up of mixtures with jazz, afrojazz, the rhythmics of hip hop, funk, 70s disco. All without ever confining their songs to one style, but pushing the exploration as much as possible, into a dimension that every journey worthy of this name should encompass. "With the musicians we work with the exchange and experimentation continue till the end, the songs can take different directions at any time".
The result is a mixed, cosmopolitan record, which escapes from any label for the affirmation of a free attitude. The attitude that led C'mon Tigre to seek a connection with dancefloor culture, even if considered only as an evocation to revisit in an absolutely personal way. "For the first time we used synthetic voices, but treated in the primordial way, not with vocoder, but with some old talk boxes that gave us the chance to modulate the words by piloting the sound". This goes with lyrics that have the flavor of a film script, no matter whether it is the noir story of "Underground Lovers" - song about a love obsession that ends in drama - or the retrofuturist one of "Behold the Man", on an adult man who lands in the world without having any knowledge and is forced, therefore, to learn everything, including the meaning of the word "freedom".
#Caveiras deal in obsessive rhythms and low frequencies, infusing punk with Afro-Brazilian vibes. Their spiritual birth can be traced back to a visit to Favela Rocinha: while watching two young boys improvise a batucada with a bucket and a bin, band members became obsessed with the possibility of an occult alliance between Rio de Janeiro and Einstürzende Neubauten's Berlin. Back home, Caveiras made a blood oath, vowing to channel the dark side of samba. Armed with an electric bass, scrap percussion and a machine-gunning sampler, they began to butcher Brazilian standards with a wild and iconoclastic attitude. Songs are dismembered, contaminated and reassembled, in a continuous cultural short circuit: claves and rhythms of the Brazilian tradition are heavily treated through electro-acoustic techniques, dub-oriented bass lines strip melody down to the bone, while screams cross the line separating punk's rants from Quimbanda's curses.
Lady in the Radiator
#LadyintheRadiator Sara Parigi and Lorenzo Robin Frosini make music in the guise of Lady in the Radiator.
Before starting this project, both Lorenzo Robin and Sara make previous musical experiences (Bad Flow, Fantastic Bra, Ioni, Horses). Now, between the rehearsal room in Agliana and the house in Vaiano, they create a world together
made of ethereal voices and scratchy guitars, wet caves to discover and woods to get lost in.
Following the addition of Walter Bellini to percussion, Lady in the Radiator are preparing the first album under the supervision of Alessio Pepi.
