A bright and "funny" song. Les Brigandes, "Démocratie"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQ-js5CcX0E

(my quick translation)

In democracy we should not worry
Everything is allowed, there are deals to be done
The elected, they hold us spellbound
And if it's not by the dog, you're eaten by the 'female of the dog'

A hit to the right, business is restarting
A hit to the left, no jobs
When we were young we were told at school
There's nothing more beautiful than democracy

On election day France is spellbound
But the biggest liar remains the champion
His face is put on the newspapers' first page
Since he has bought the medias and the polls

A hit to the right, business is restarting
A hit to the left, no jobs
When we were young we were told at school
There's nothing more beautiful than democracy

When I'm tired to go for nothing
Now I send my dog to vote
He can guess the candidate
That will be president
By the smell of crap

A hit to the right, business is restarting
A hit to the left, no jobs
When we were young we were told at school
There's nothing more beautiful than democracy

It's Plato who said
That when democracy
becomes too rotten
then anarchy will follow

We call a tyran
the providential man
who no matter how
has fallen from the sky

A hit to the right, business is restarting
A hit to the left, no jobs
When we were young we were told at school
There's nothing more beautiful than democracy

There'll be repression and immigration
Always more problems and few solutions
Whatever the trend is
The new president will
Certainly give France the finger

A hit to the right, business is restarting
A hit to the left, no jobs
When we were young we were told at school
There's nothing more beautiful than democracy

And another bright and funny one, this time published on December 14th 2018.

Sorry no translation. Although bright music and visuals that should to many political figures.

The two songs above are no longer available on youtube. The people writing those songs were criticizing strongly the French government, they were increasingly popular (millions of views in total) and so, their youtube account was terminated by youtube.

There is an alternative source from Germany (with German subtitles) :

"Demokratie"

"Nennt mich Bitte nicht den Präsidenten"

Recently I finished re-reading Mind Models by Roger Reynolds, the original 1975 edition. At the end of the book he presents analyses of a series of pieces that were unique in that day, at least one of which - Penderecki's Threnody - has become a "modern classic". Among the others I was especially captivated by Robert Ashley's "in memoriam... Esteban Gomez". Although I couldn't find Hornpipe by Gordon Mumma, I did find other works of his that I enjoyed. So I've spent a lot of the week listening to music by Robert Ashley, Gordon Mumma, Roger Reynolds, Salvatore Martirano, and Ben Johnston. Unusual music by some unusual suspects.

Best,

Snarky Puppy is a jazz/rock fusion band. Half the fun of this album is the videos of them performing the whole thing in a studio; you can tell these folks are really into their music: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=O ... 1IA_VeFBoo

Yep, Snarky Puppy is pretty good. At least those clips.

People who like Snarky Puppy might like also Jaga Jazzist from Norway:

Do you like big, jazz bands ? Here's Shibusashirazu, an eccentric, colourful, and jazzy, 'big band' from Japan. Often combining live various artistic expressions such as dancers and painters:

The Hungarian progressive rock icons After Crying in a live performance with orchestra:

Another live one from AC, out of their 25th anniversary concert, in which we also find Ravel's "Bolero" modulated in nice ways, as well as a famous King Crimson riff.

The music starts after the monologue about the life of the soul, at 02:45.

Kit Watkins and Coco Roussel - In Time. Here are three tracks from the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y63Aa3BcdVo

I found this album years ago by accident, at a public library sale. Apparently no one ever checked out the CD, so they put it up for sale. I had never heard of it, or the artists, but I read through the liner notes and saw that they were using midi and synthesizers in the early 80's and decided to give it a listen. When I got it home I was amazed, and it has been one of my favorite albums ever since.

Kit Watkins and Coco Roussel used to play together in a progressive rock band called Happy the Man, and apparently this album was a spin-off from that collaboration. There are some videos online of the two playing live together, but as far as I know "In Time" is their only studio album. It is completely instrumental.

The album is musically and rhythmically complex, as you might expect from two former members of a prog rock band, but it it extremely listenable and at times really beautiful and moving. The sound engineering and synth work is absolutely fantastic, but as good as the album is technically, this is overshadowed by the strength of the composition and virtuosity of the performance. And Roussel plays acoustic drums, which gives the album a really nice, organic feeling despite the fact that all of the other instruments are electronic.
