toshi ichiyanagi

Toshi Ichiyanagi - Flowers and Others - Opera from the Works of Tadanori Yokoo (1970 reissued Bridge Inc., 2005)

Puro deleite visual y auditivo. Gracias, Neno:-)

flaviola e o bando do sol


Flaviola y su banda del sol tocaban canciones de psicodelia folk brasileña, dulces y diminutas, allá por los años setenta. El resultado es un disco saltarín, más discreto en repercusión que el de Satwa o el de Lula Cortés y Zé Ramalho, y que estoy segura haría las delicias, como ya dije, de Devendra Banhart. A veces melancólico y triste (noite o Canto Fúnebre), y otras exultantemente alegre (Asas, a ritmo de carnaval). Disco olvidado del año...

Flaviola [guitar] , Ze da Flauta [flute] , Paulo Raphael [eletric guitar] , Robertinho[eletric guitar], Fernando Amaral [bass] , Neuza [autoharpa] , Lula Cortés [tricordio and dulcimer] , Icinho [bongo] and Dicinho [bass].

chicago



I fell in love again... all things go, all things go...drove to Chicago... all things know, all things know, we sold our clothes to the state... I don't mind, I don't mind, I made a lot of mistakes... in my mind, in my mind...

Sufjan es como el Capitán Soledad de Paperhouse, al mando del timón de un yate como el de Vacaciones en el Mar, mirando ilusionado hacia un horizonte como el de Barrio Lejano. Con esa cara de panoli, tiene toda la pinta de ser un perfeccionista. Chicago es el himno de Illinois, pletórico de tristeza y felicidad, de coros, de vientos...cuanto más la escucho, más me gusta. Después de un viaje tan corto e intenso me quedo con esa agradable sensación de haber soltado, por fin, el lastre. Sólo espero que el vuelo sea real, y tan bonito al menos como el iniciado por el calcetín del cartel.
