Director's Statement:
The concept for the video was born from a line in the chorus: "we experience the love that we think we deserve". It's a simple and eloquent lyric, one that I felt evoked a powerful sort of reflection and consideration. I was interested in how that line transcends the idea of romantic love, how it pushed the listener to consider the idea of love in much broader and more complex terms. To communicate this idea visually, the idea of nakedness came to mind immediately. Nudity is almost always sexualized in any sort of popular media, however the content of this track provided an opportunity to subvert that expectation – the focus instead placed upon nakedness in terms of honesty and vulnerability. I wanted these static nude portraits to act as their own relatively neutral canvases, creating the space for the viewer project the idea of the refrain –  "we experience the love that we think we deserve", onto these people, to consider/imagine the type of life these people have had, who and how they love and have been loved (friends, family, romantic partners), and ultimately, to come back to themselves regarding this same consideration.

“I wanted to expose the two sides of the human struggle with religion. On the one hand, religious thinking is ridiculous and antiquated – it’s a destructive, divisive force – and, on the other hand, humans desire to believe in something higher than themselves and to relieve themselves of responsibility or the burden of a futile existence,” he said. “When you first remove religion or even just the vague idea of God from your life, it can be a huge existential struggle. This song is about that struggle, or rather my own struggle of trying to fill the spiritual void with other meaning.”

The last time we ft Desampa on the blog was in 2013
wow, time flies!
No matter who you are, if your soul shines through a mask,
then you've got a gift that's called humanity.

São Paulo-based singer and songwriter, DESAMPA premieres the music video for his
track "Waiting", off of his third release, "/// EP" (2015). The video is a visual guide to a
dark and dance track produced in collaboration with English producer iMC.

In the video, the artist wanders through infamous areas of São Paulo, his birth city, such
as Paulista Avenue (busiest avenue) and Minhocão (a bridge that sits above the city). He
dances and moves in front of the city and its inhabitants, like there was no one else

The track “Waiting” talks about an unrequited love, not because there is no attraction
between both people, but because they are in different dimensions. The video was
directed by Marlon Brambilla (Estúdio Carne), with costume by Mario Francisco, of the
Brazilian label Der Metropol.

“I wanted the clothes and the masks, in connection with the city’s lights, to translate what
I envision of a São Paulo from a not so distant future. But that may never come to be
so.”, says DESAMPA.

The 24 year old musician, works with an infusion of R&B, Soul and electronic music,
creating what’s called “Future Soul”. He is one of the four Brazilians that will attend Red
Bull Music Academy, to be held in Paris this year. 

Yesterday I was running,
running with the clouds I could nearly touch, out the window. Light sparkling through my face,taste buds bursting,filled up with pure white cotton candy.
It was the most beautiful naturalistic memory I was trying to hold on to. Stormily sunlight came again today with this album flowing through the heart of my ears.

"The story of Thunder Lay Down in the Heart begins with the poem “A Boy” written in 1956 by John Ashbery, well before he became the world renown, Pulitzer Prize winning poet we know him as today. In a rare collaboration, Tignor recorded Ashbery reading the work in his Chelsea apartment, surrounding it with his own original musical setting for strings that opens the record. A line from this poem became the title of Tignor’s twenty-minute work for string orchestra, electronics, and drums, featuring eminent Boston-based ensemble A Far Cry. The album’s B side continues the process of reinterpretation as Tignor electronically reimagines and remixes the title piece into “The Listening Machines” and “To Draw a Perfect Circle”, creating spellbinding ambient adventures derived directly from the tapes of this ensemble’s gut-wrenching virtuoso performance. Ending as we began with collaboration, the record’s final remix, “First, Impressions”, was created with composer / pianist Rachel Grimes (of Rachel's).

In the 90’s Christopher Tignor immersed himself in minimalism, working as an assistant for LaMonte Young while learning sound engineering on the job at a New York contemporary music festival produced by Philip Glass. He went on to refine his skills mixing live sound for bands at two of New York’s seminal clubs, CBGB’s and Brownies. During this time Tignor also studied computer science, developing his unique software instruments for processing sounds. He released, composed, and produced 3 albums with his band Slow Six, and two albums with his high-energy duo Wires Under Tension. Tignor has also contributed his skills as violinist and string arranger both in the studio and on tour to This Will Destroy You, John Congleton’s Nighty Nite, and Lymbyc Systym.

“Thunder Lay Down in the Heart” is Tignor’s second LP released under his own name following his much acclaimed 2009 Core Memory Unwound. This album explores the natural link between numerous musical disciplines including contemporary classical, ranging from John Adams to Aaron Copland to John Luther Adams, melodic rock, ambient drone music, and electronic experimental artists such as William Basinski."

 You stripped the message
You changed the frame
Washed it whiteAnd stole our name
Tried to slip away
Out the back door
Did you pull it off?
You cant be sure
Cause confusion
Hide behind
Lies impliedHollow out the cultural tieReplace it with your signifiersSo keep on down your ragged Mile
‘Cause we won’t be too far behind

And when you fall you’re gonna want to know who
Who it really was who took you downAnd when you fallWe’ll be there waiting for you
No- there’s no exit. You can’t turn around

When you got itYou forgot it was never yoursYou won’t know how but when it falls down
You’ll know exactly who we are

While you’re spending yourself,
We’re saving.While you’re playing yourself
We’re planning.
While you’re folding your hand,
We’re holdingWhere you’re ending yourself,
We begin.
While you’re sleeping on us,We’re stalking.When you jump at the gun,We stand. Still. (We’re still standing).

And when you fall you’re gonna want to know who
Who it really was who took you downAnd when you fallWe’ll be there waiting for you
There’s no exit. You can’t turn around

When you got itYou forgot it was never yours
No, you won’t know howBut when it falls downYou’ll know exactly who we are.

A message from the Directors:
An oscillating stream of light attempts to intrude on an arid natural landscape, abstract light and a living environment merge, reacting to the dynamics of the music.
The luminous abstract forms are produced by a light painting machine that, frame by frame, draws in a real environment the 3D animated figures.
This is an experimental video created by Pablo Barquín, Junior Martínez, Nathan Grimes and Anna Diaz Ortuño.

"I spent months trying to scan all these images & letters, most covered with ocean dirt, and in doing so discovered what people often find in their family's past: that they are a hell of a lot like those who'd come before," says Kolenik. The chorus of standout "Boys Life" echoes this sentiment with the refrain "pictures of youth/picturing you," over a track that itself was an old demo re-discovered by accident by the band, during a late night jam session at a cabin in Upstate NY.

Drawing from the leftfield avant-pop of Arthur Russell and Talking Heads, progressive disco of Nile Rodgers and contemporary ambient electronica, Retiree channel these influences through their own pervasive aura of rum-drunk antipodean sunshine. The result is music that is in equal parts lush, thoughtful melody and meditative tropical rhythm.

The EP sees joint international release between Rhythm Section International and Plastic World - purveyors of southern hemisphere groove-driven underground pop (GL, Savoir). 

I'm so happy to see Andras collab!
I could tell from the vibes....
