Still feeling like the world is a tad out of sync, at least today. Yesterday wasn’t so bad, it was a good day of writing and the song I’m working on with Shairah is coming down the final stretch. Got about 1/4 of the lyrics finished up. Should be able to get them finished somewhere in the neighborhood of Thursday.
Meanwhile, papers that were signed last week have come back with a counter offer on the tour funding. Let’s say that it’s so menial that it puts me back at square one again. It’s like a cruel joke at this point. Spending all this time working and working on putting proposals together, signing papers and making things right – only to get 1/10th of the amount?!? ARGH!
So while, I put my dancing shoes back on to start chasing a new angle around the floor, I’m going to leave you with today’s selection.
E.S. Posthumus. Rather bizarre name for a project, or group. That doesn’t stop them from creating a rather dense piece of music here. The initial attraction for me was the use of vocoder on the vocal. It reminded me a little of Imogen. Of course after she had a hit with that effect, it’s gonna get compared to her despite many people having used it for lots of years long before she came along. Hell it didn’t stop me from starting a song using it either.
I have zero idea what the lyrics are saying. I actually have no idea what language it’s even near. But with the production that rivals Enya or even Enigma, I’m not gonna care. There’s something extremely soothing about all those cats and Posthumus as well. There’s a wall of sound coming out of my laptop. It’s huge on small speakers, that’s awesome.
Any listeners/readers aware of the language? What is she singing about? It’s got me intrigued. How about you?
Go get the album. Go get the song. Purchasing the CD at CD Baby will yield you a ton of remixes as well as the originals. That’s a bonus.
p.s. – Speaking of remixes I’m in the process of having Hero Unexpected remixed for me by a couple of cats. Remixes are added spice to the music life.
