Rachel and The Soul Criminals – Plain and Simple

https://babylonburnradi0.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/rachel.jpg?w=300

http://www.myspace.com/thesoulcriminals

Origine du Groupe : Germany

Style : Soul , Funk

Sortie : 2010

Twenty-year-old singer Rachel Scharnberg, obviously anything but a sixties kid, presents herself as an artist deeply influenced by original soul and funk music from way back, by the warm and
intense performances that made us admire Aretha Franklin and Donny Hathaway, the sound being kept alive by the likes of Daptone Records today. “Plain & Simple” is all about pure, hand made
music. No samples, no gadgets, nothing but vintage instruments, an amazing voice and analogue recording gear. In case you ever wondered what makes vinyl records and analogue techniques so special
– this is a perfect demonstration of the raw, uncut sound of Soul.

Equally vital to this album as Rachel is, there’s Soul Criminals trombinist and bandleader Michael Theissing-Tegeler (MTT) with his compositions and his unique way of producing. A few years back,
he teamed up with The Shack Band and delivered “Geb’s auf” (“Give it up”), a funky gem embraced by DJs, vinyl collectors and soul lovers alike, and now he finally returned to recording. Tegeler
draws his inspiration from Daptone mastermind Gabriel Roth’s manifesto “shitty is pretty”, a guide to analogue recording techniques aiming at the intense sound that only a reel-to-reel tape
recorder is able to capture. Unpretentious yet sophisticated, Rachel, MTT and the Soul Criminals are on top of their game, young musicians who have spent half their lives on stage and have worked
with German greats as diverse as Curse, Tom Gaebel, Sarah Connor, Brings, Stefanie Heinzmann, Denyo or Luis.

This record is driven by honest devotion to music. Music that touches you, makes you want to dance – music that simply feels good. The Soul Criminals are based in Cologne’s Parkhaus-Studio, which
itself is widely renowned for distinct, unconventional productions. Soulplex Recordings and online radio station soulsender.de, both highly respected players not only in Cologne’s music scene,
have teamed up with Rachel and the Soul Criminals in order to spread the word: It’s “Plain & Simple!”

Handsome Boy Modeling School – White People

https://i0.wp.com/images.uulyrics.com/cover/h/handsome-boy-modeling-school/album-white-people.jpg

http://handsomeboymodelingschool.com

http://www.myspace.com/handsomeboymodelingschoool

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handsome_Boy_Modeling_School

Origine du Groupe : North America

Style : Alternative Fusion , Rap Fusion

Sortie : 2004

Here at the Handsome Boy Modeling School, your image is your face is your friends is your life. We have beauty in the steps, in the lips, in the threads; you will be the chic all over the street;
all the peoples will look at you and nod and murmur sweet nothings to the air you pass through, you little darling. This is our objective at Handsome Boy Modeling School, and you will know
nothing else. You will be immersed in all the metropolitan styles; it will ensconce you like a cultural mousse of rich chocolate. You will be delicious!

It hurts to say it, no, it causes little friggin’ fork stabs of pain to traipse down my tongue and larynx, but my favorite track on Handsome Boy Modeling School’s White People is “Breakdown,” the
track that features none other than, um, Jack Johnson. Shit. I confess and beg absolution. The piano notes and the squeezed fat opera woman, the scratches and the whistling, the damn egg shaker
percussion, and Jack Johnson’s best Damon impersonation… I just can’t say no. I can’t say no.

Wholeness and integrity are things that don’t exist in the modern state of man. We are disparate elements of materialism and Freudian psychology and a hierarchy of needs struggling to find some
spiritual or philosophical way to come together, but that quest is impossible and foolish and such a bore. Exist in glorious, decadent excess and make it your beauty. Focus all your efforts on
simply becoming a model upon which all may pin labels of adoration. Image and style are the most universal standards of social appeal; only through the pursuit of them can you become everything
to everyone, and only through becoming everything to everyone can you become anything to yourself. Handsome Boy Modeling will make this your reality.

Damn, and my second favorite track on White People is probably “Greatest Mistake,” featuring John Oates and Jamie Cullum, which is sort of pathetic when you think about it. It’s not that
production whizzes Prince Paul and Dan the Automator have completely lost it; it’s just that they seem to have haphazardly thrown together a collections of skits and singles with about as much
rhyme and reason as Sole on barbiturates or the middle section of Gilliam’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas adaptation. Indeed, White People could very easily be called the sound of Prince Paul
and Dan Nakamura playing Duke and Dr. Gonzo with their eclectic cast of cameos in psychedelic tow: Chan Marshall, RZA, Bixler from Mars Volta, Lord Finesse, Dres of Black Sheep, that Franz
Ferdinand guy, Mike Patton, Tim Meadows shooting his “Ladies Man” shtick all over the place, hell, where’s Master P’s mom?

Polish your nails into a brilliance that shadows the sun! Curl and lotion your hair until its waves are strong enough to erode the stoniest of hearts! Practice that accent! Affectation of status
and popularity shows desire; what you desire most, you will have… with the help of white people and the Handsome Boy Modeling School, of course.

Sure, the album contains at least half a dozen solid tracks, but I should be careful lest I cast the impression that this motley crew of material makes for one wild, zany ride. Even the most
daring songs here are glossy and safe enough to chart on the billboards for their respective genres; White People puffs its chest boldly only in its apparent contempt for cohesion and
consistency. The schizophrenia on display here is not of the dramatic sort that intrigues or interests; it’s a very real disorder that befuddles and annoys the listener. Swinging with conceptual
neglect and fashion wax, the Handsome Boy Modeling School’s latest attempt to cover all the bases flies apart at the seams.

We will blow you up, boy!

More new treasures from the Nubian culture vaults presented by Berlin-based Mahmoud Fadl and his group Salamat. A wealth of delicacies from the voluptuous garden of North African tradition –
earthy rhythms and oriental melodies, recorded in Cairo with the stars of the Nubian New Wave scene. A modern tribute to the glorious past of a lost civilisation which nonetheless remains vibrant
through its music. Shake your roots!

Lloyd Miller & The Heliocentrics – Lloyd Miller & The Heliocentrics

Origine du Groupe : North America , U.K

Style : World Music , Psychedelic , Instrumental

Sortie : 2010

Né en Californie en 1938, Lloyd Miller commença à jouer du piano très tôt. Curieux de nature, il devint rapidement un multi-instrumentiste de renom. Il séjourna plusieurs fois en Europe ou il
joua avec les plus grands : Bud Powel, Kenny Clark, il découvrit avec ces artistes une ouverture culturelle vers les musiques du Moyen-Orient, il n’aura de cesse depuis ces rencontres de mêler la
tradition orientale et la modernité du jazz. C’est aujourd’hui avec The Heliocentrics  qu’on le retrouve pour un coup de maitre, il reprend ici son Spirit Jazz et grave une poignée de plages
où éclatent sonorités indiennes, balinaises, persanes. La grande qualité de cet enregistrement réside dans le respect que The Heliocentrics accordent à l’univers du maitre, sagesse héritée de
leur passé de backing band au coté de Madlib ou encore Shadow. Une bien belle rencontre a mettre au compte du non moins excellent label Strut.
