Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know

“Somebody That I Used To Know”

 

[Gotye:]

Now and then I think of when we were together

Like when you said you felt so happy you could die

Told myself that you were right for me

But felt so lonely in your company

But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness

Like resignation to the end, always the end

So when we found that we could not make sense

Well you said that we would still be friends

But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing

And I don’t even need your love

But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

No you didn’t have to stoop so low

Have your friends collect your records and then change your number

I guess that I don’t need that though

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over

But had me believing it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna live that way

Reading into every word you say

You said that you could let it go

And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]

But you didn’t have to cut me off

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing

And I don’t even need your love

But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

No you didn’t have to stoop so low

Have your friends collect your records and then change your number

I guess that I don’t need that though

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

[x2]

Somebody

(I used to know)

Somebody

(Now you’re just somebody that I used to know)

(I used to know)

(That I used to know)

Braids — Blondie

See me running here ??? through the sunlight of the mind
See me running towards the sunny of the muggy crowded side
Friends love the sun, they said they can’t stop loving his blond hair
He’s about harbor, he’s above the, when the coast is clear

And I, I find the way
And I, will leave this space
Are we sneaking, lonely peeking
I want much this to share
So I push you off I push you
??? starts to swear

Boy it’s nothing, it’s not disaster
Nice to throw you on despair
Push you slower, make you sleep on
Think I’m living, you don’t care

And I, I find the way
And I, will leave this space
And I, I find the way
And I, will leave this space

I know, I know, I know, yeah
See you running, desolate
Sun might cast upon my head
See you running from the place
Where I thought I could hide
See you running, this and this
All our fuss beyond this place
See you running, this and this
From the sun locked up from mine

Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld – Never were the way she was | Music Review | Tiny Mix Tapes

Experimental Indie rock Senza categoria

Much to the blessing of low-frequency drone and sad clamorous metronome lovers everywhere, Colin Stetson continues to thrive. The unfailingly singular approach to the sound that he has carved out never feels like mere indie novelty, even with Justin Vernon crooning over it. The man’s music is sorrowful and soundtrack-friendly, but there is always an element of imperfection, of adjustment and sweat and lag and lope. He mercilessly tweaks his repetitions, even as they are deploying their nec

Jose Gonzalez – Heartbeats

José González

IN OUR NATUREThe music of José González is hardly reminiscent of fireworks and confetti, but still that’s exactly how his last album was received – all over the world. His low-voiced, serious and introverted music has almost been hugged to death by everything from the indie crowd to your grandmother. José himself is more than anything surprised. Now it’s time for the album In Our Nature.It is four years since Veneer, his first album, was released. During that time a lot has happened: record breaking sales, European, North-American, Asian and South-American tours, a shower of awards and the song Heartbeats being featured in the Sony Bravia commercial. That particular song quickly made José González known outside of the indie circuit around the world, and most people that heard it wanted to know more. A couple of years earlier Sweden major morning paper DN reviewer Malena Rydell wrote: “The songs of José González have something that instantly makes you react”. And that’s just how it went; a lot of people seemed to react to the song that was being played during the commercial breaks. Following this, Heartbeats got an almost exaggerated amount of attention, especially in England, Ireland and Australia. From the outside it looked as if José González became famous overnight and that it was a song (and what’s more is that it was a cover song) that was his main asset. Fortunately that’s not the way it was.Rather, José’s music rests on a foundation that has been built from long-term work, starting many years ago. As far back as six months before the commercial Veneer was being praised by a unanimous European press. You could compare the construction of his music with the research he was doing when Veneer was released, at which time he was educating himself to become a researcher in biochemistry at the university of Gothenburg. He attacks his music almost in the same way: patiently, methodically and with great interest in finding unexpected angles. The work with In Our Nature was to a great extent about bringing out different approaches.- I didn’t want to write about love but find other, though equally universal themes for the songs. These are things I have always been thinking about. But the last six months I became a lot more interested in it after I read the book The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. He’s an evolutionary biologist. But the lyrics are far from biological, I’d like to point that out. It’s mainly the theme that interests me, José González says.In his teens he learned how to play classical guitar and some time later, when he was part of one punk band and one hardcore band, he sat at home writing low-voiced pieces on his guitar. That range of expression, or maybe that contradiction in expression, says a lot about José as a person – and about the new album In Our Nature.It is an album that on the one hand is very accessible and speaks easily, and on the other has a darkness and a seriousness that more than often borders on what should be considered healthy.- I like playing with symbolism. On this album I’ve wanted to bring out the primitive aspects of human beings, José González says.In Our Nature is sonically similar to the debut album, though it’s more open and more focused on melodies. Everything is recorded on tape in Gothenburg, but not before José had practiced everything very thoroughly. When the songs sounded good on the voice recorder he dared to record them for real. After that it happened quickly: it didn’t take more than two weeks to record the ten songs.Factoid:Age: 29Lives: Haga in GothenburgFamily: His mother and two siblings live in Sweden. His father has returned to Argentina.Playing on the album are:José González, guitar and vocals, Erik Bodin, percussion, Yukimi Nagamo, backing vocals. The album art for In Our Nature is done by Elias Araya.Has played in Against the Wall, Renascence, Only if You Call Me Jonathan, and is playing in Junip.Sources of inspiration:Chet Baker, Geoff Farina, Low, Fela Kuti, Elliott Smith, Broadcast, MF Doom, J Dilla, Konono no 1, Nina Simone.Veneer, the debut album, has sold over 700.000 copies in total.Awards:European Border Breaker Award 2006.The Swedish government music export award 2007 (for sales in 2006).Swedish Grammy in the category Best New Artist 2004.Award for best Swedish songwriter of the year from SMFF (Swedish Music Publishers Association).Award for Singer/songwriter of the year at Manifestgalan.Sales awards:Platinum in Sweden and Great Britain.Double Platinum in Ireland.Gold in Australia and New Zealand.Has toured practically all over the world during the last 4 years.In Our Nature will be released simultaneously in 35 countries;Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Central and South America and South Africa among others.The Story:José González’s story is rare in modern pop – a heartening case of the artist resisting the vicissitudes of musical fashion to carve out a unique, intimate style that is all his own, then defiantly following his muse all the way to the top of the charts.An established star in Scandinavia, José’s critically adored album Veneer is currently bedded down in the UK Top Ten while his single ‘Heartbeats’ continues to trouble the sharp end of the singles chart – and it’s a similar story across Europe. It’s uplifting then, in an age of spin, hype and wall-to-wall hyperbole, to note that José’s music has required no lavish production (he records on basic equipment, at home) no exotic packaging or gimlet-eyed marketing strategies, to make it cherished by thousands. For once even the Sun got it right: ”In a world of musical clones, the Argentinean Swede is a thrillingly original new talent”.In purist rock connoisseur heaven, it should always be thus, but, let’s face it, when did the last genuine solo troubadour (as opposed to drippy acoustic balladeer) go so swiftly from critical acclaim and cult adoration to international stardom, while still retaining every inch of credibility? Even Bob Dylan had a few problems with the latter! Ultimately, José’s success restores faith in the power of the song and the lone vigil of the singer-songwriter, laying himself bare for our empathetic pleasure. That José is still in his mid-20s makes his achievement to date doubly impressive – and his future one of appetising prospects.Relying simply on his own masterfully eloquent classical guitar and a voice that marries mature assuredness with poignant delicacy, José has been creating his inimitable sonic world since the late ‘90s, though his recording career didn’t begin in earnest until 2003. His achingly emotional melodies and thought-provoking lyrics – all sung in perfect, crystalline English – combine in a manner at once familiar (think Nick Drake, Tim Buckley, Will Oldham) and subtly exotic (shades of Brazilian Tropicalia – early Silvio Rodríguez, Cuban Nueva Trova). His songs are so timeless – you feel like they’ve always been around – yet there’s a clean freshness to José’s music that makes repeated listening an endlessly revivifying delight.Born in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1978, José was bought up in a house that teemed with all kinds of music. His Argentine-born father’s natural taste for Latin American music was only rivalled by a penchant for American and UK pop classics – and the eclecticism rubbed off on his young son. After these fledgling dalliances, José followed his own path, initially playing bass in Black Flag-inspired rock combo Back Against The Wall, before flirting with hardcore in Gothenburg’s Renascence and dipping into indie rock with the unlikely sounding Only If You Call Me Jonathan… But these rites of passage only led him back to the voice and six-string, and, after a series of lessons in classical guitar, the beginnings of a very personal style. Vocally, José admits to the influence of some appropriately intimate-toned forebears: Eliot Smith, Geoff Farina and Songs:Ohia’s Jason Molina among them. He’s also happy to point out the positive effect on his music instilled by listening to such disparate artists as Cat Power, Tortoise and Joy Division.After these tasteful and diverse influences had done their work, José’s rise was meteoric. After untrammelled Scandinavian success in 2004, José signed to London-based indie Peacefrog, releasing his UK debut, the EP Crosses, in February ’05. Press hosannas and some jaw-dropping, heartstring-tugging UK shows set off the proverbial buzz and by the time the debut album Veneer was released in April, word had spread like wildfire. With the press salivating, radio went into meltdown, with more plays on BBC Radio 1 than a play-listed record! Sessions were recorded for everybody from XFM’s John Kennedy to Radio 4’s Loose Ends and there was also a rapturous live session for Radio 1’s Zane Lowe that culminated in a wondrously singular reading of Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’.Touring in support of the album, Jose reinforced his magnetic qualities, tantalising his live following with another magnificent make-over – Kylie’s ‘Hand on your Heart’, which has to be heard to be believed. By the time he embarked on another major UK tour in February ’06, Jose had capped twelve months of incredible live shows including a support slot to the Dalai Lama in Sweden – which may just have pipped other bills shared with the likes of Arcade Fire and Juana Molina…Meanwhile, another cover, ‘Heartbeats’ (originally by Swedish band The Knife and a Veneer highlight) was gaining wide UK currency thanks to its use in the high profile Sony Bravia TV campaign, helping usher it into the upper echelons of the UK chart in January 2006 (it was even a ringtone Number One!). José’ played ‘Heartbeats’ on Top Of The Pops in January and was the subject of a Channel 4 TV documentary titled Orchestra Of One in early February.Still full of energy, José is currently hunkered down with his other project, the band Junip, working with a premier league UK production duo (details to be unveiled in the very near future). The words ‘world’, ‘his’ and ‘oyster’ spring to mind…(text by Peacefrog)

Lyrics:
Hey you,
you don’t seem as loud
as the rest of the crowd.
Don’t you
find it kinda lame
that I don’t know your name yet?
And most of the words are just floating around,
but the feeling is such that I must make a sound.
And all the time I spend with you it all goes to waste now,
and whenever I’m with you I just want a taste of.
Pouring out my soul again,
the sound of twenty million men.
The way that I believe in makes
me bound to do the same mistakes.

Sean Hayes – “Powerful Stuff”

Powerful Stuff

Oh yes this is powerful stuff
Got me circling like the moon round the sun
Got me acting like a fool on a drunk
Hear me this is powerful stuff

No way for you to give this up
It is in your body
It is in your blood
Tear you down
Lift you up
Keep you turning like it’s never enough

All right then let us turn it up
Everyday do like a flower does
Sun rises and she opens up
Sun rises and she sings

Hit me

This is powerful
Powerful
Powerful

Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
When a thing is so strong
You can’ t give it up
Won’t give it up

Got you
Turning
Yearning
Burning

Can’t give it up
Won’t give up
Even when your
Turning
Yearning
Burning

Can’t give it up
Won’t give it up

Ooh ooh ooh oh oh…

Sleep now under my skin
Make sure you’ll try to
Conjure the wind
And ease my mind

Ooh ooh ooh oh oh…

Somebody call out to your brother
He’s calling out your name
Ooh ooh ooh
Hiding under the covers
With no one else to blame
Ooh ooh ooh
You couldn’t help out your own neighbour
You couldn’t tell it to his face
You were fucked up by the blame

You cower in the corner
Confide in your father
Let it out and say
Let it pass away

Sleep now under my skin
Make sure you try to
Conjure the wind
And ease my mind

And I said
Ooh ooh ooh oh oh…

Somebody call out to your brother
He’s calling out your name
Ooh ooh ooh
Hiding under the covers
With no one else to blame
Ooh ooh ooh
You couldn’t help out your own neighbour
You couldn’t tell it to his face
You were fucked up by the blame

You cower in the corner
Confide in your father
Let it out and say

You cower in the corner
Confide in your father
Let it break your day
Let it out and say

Wait there
Pull yourself out of this state dear
Acknowledge you were a fake here
From there on you might just grow
Ooh ooh ooh

Somebody call out to your brother
He’s calling out your name
Ooh ooh ooh
Hiding under the covers
With no one else to blame
Ooh ooh ooh
Oh, you couldn’t help out your own neighbour
You couldn’t tell it to his face
You were fucked up by the blame

Well same old Bobby, same old beat
Well yeah they got nothing on me
The same old clutch, same old streets
But yeah they got nothing on me
And easy come and easy go
Well yeah I’m sure I told you so
Well they just want you for your dough
Man I’m sure I told you so
And with your dead-end job
That’s been eating away your life
You feel a little inside
The trouble and strife
And now you spend your evenings
Searching for another life
And yeah I think maybe
I think you’ve got them in your sights

(Chorus)
Well, easy easy
There’s no need to take that tone
Well easy
I’m on the telephone
Man just leave us alone

(Verse 2)
Ow no I should’ve kept my receipts
Cause the sandwich I bought
Yeah it’s been off for a week
And ‘low Tesco’s stealing my money
When positivity seems hard to reach
I keep my head down and my mouth shut
Cause if you going through hell
We just keep going

From Wikipedia : Life and career :

Marshall’s childhood was divided between his working-class, tolerant mother in East Dulwich and his strict father in Peckham. He claims to have suffered “a lot of weird shit” during this time, and at age 13 he began refusing to go to school. His parents were threatened with prison terms if they could not get him to attend again; he did not until his father dragged him there. He implied in an interview with The Guardian that he was diagnosed with at least one mental illness during this time and hated the medical system as a result. He also had insomnia, leading him to stay up late at night listening to The Pixies and The Libertines, which inspired him to create “soundscapes.”
