A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: EL AMBIENTE BIEN BABES Y BEAN DE URUGUAY: VOLUME 2

El Ambiente Bien Babes Y Bean de Uruguay Vol. II

Hello all, what follows is Volume 2 of two very special mixes I made upon returning from the motherlandUruguay. Truly, this was the best trip I’ve ever been on. Here I try to capture the atmosphere and sentiment of me and my wife’s experiences through the sounds we listened to while there, as well as with what I was inspired to dig up and look into upon our return.

I have come to realize that for the foreseeable future I simply will not have time to reproduce something akin to what I accomplished with the post for Volume 1. However, I feel that I must post this now with the season being just perfect for these tunes to be heard–as this two-volume mix is best enjoyed when under the warm sun; so be sure to break it out a few times over the course of the summer! If you enjoy any of the artists represented here I strongly encourage you to explore their work and lives further, as many remain relatively unknown outside of that wonderful little country nestled between the massive Brazil and Argentina, settled on the banks of a river as wide as a sea: Uruguay.

O, and don’t forget to revisit Volume 1, as they certainly work best together as a whole.

You can go directly to the download for Vol. 1 –(HERE)–

I am fairly confident that these two mixes are all you would require for the summer!

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: —- —– – – — — — – — – – POOR MAN’S TRINKETS

TRUEDT

Hello All,

This post was to be a sort of continuation of the easy-breezy opiate sounds featured on the last MixTape, Easter Censer, but that will simply have to wait, as today I present to you my own take on “Fan-Fiction.” Having just recently finished binge-watching the first season of the HBO series True Detective, I was, to put it lightly, completely impressed.

Through and thru these eight episodes are a work of art: the subtle yet skillfully complicated performances by all the actors and the chemistry between them (particularly, it goes without mention, from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson); The sensitive exploration of certain facets of the human-condition through writer Nic Pizzolatto’s narrative structure and dialogue; and of course the exquisite revenants that are the visuals provided by director Cary Joji Fukunaga and cinematographer Adam Arkapaw–the scenes are phosphorescent in their putridity.

True-Detective

However, another element of the show that netted me immediately was the soundtrack; particularly in the first episode with the use of a long-loved-by-me Freewheelin’ outtake by Dylan called “Rocks and Gravel” in a scene where Cohle speaks with the gaming girls at a truck stop bar. I was not surprised to find out afterwards that the man responsible for the music selections is none other than T Bone Burnett.

Along with being a fantastic musician, producer, and songwriter himself, the man has made an award-winning career out of having exceptional taste in music, an intuition for adding depth, and tact when creating the appropriate atmosphere.

Throughout the whole series Burnett’s selections are perfection; none more so though than with his choice of closing episode seven with the haunted tone of Townes Van Zandt‘s austere “Lungs.” The song arrives like a sharp blade through brambles: full of purpose even as it drives on ahead into mystery and sorrow.

Well, won’t you lend your lungs to me?
Mine are collapsin’
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe
Up the time that’s passin’

Breath I’ll take and breath I’ll give
And pray the day is not poisoned
Stand among the ones that live
In lonely indecision

Well, fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you’ve found
You fool it’s only moonlight

If you stop to take it home
Your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
Try to find another

Salvation sat and crossed herself
Called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
Who’ll kill the raging cancer

Seal the river at its mouth
Take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries
Bathe in fiery answers

Well, Jesus was an only son
And love his only concept
The strangers cry in foreign tongues
And dirty up the doorstep

And I for one, and you for two
Ain’t got the time for outside
Keep your injured looks to you
We’ll tell the world that we tried

————– —         –   —  ————    -  –
So, as I said, here’s my version of Fan-Fiction, which owes its inspiration to the work of T Bone Burnett on True Detective as much as it does to anyone else. I invite you to imagine your own scenes and narratives to these tunes.

To my mind this MixTape, Poor Man’s Trinkets, is the soundtrack to a lost episode buried somewhere within the seventh of the actual series. This would be one where Detectives Rust Cohle and Marty Hart rework the murder of Dora Lange from scratch, and thus are forced to revisit once again their own personal histories as well. Admittedly, this recapitulation of the entire series thus far wouldn’t make for very exciting television but through the filter and tension of atmospherics (and car-ride conversations through Richard Misrach‘s “Petrochemical America) it could further explore the show’s central yet elusive themes of patriarchy and its inheritance; the cyclical nature of existence; perceptions of manhood and responsibility; the art and guile involved in all forms of storytelling; companionship and male friendship; and the presence of Grace. This mix also corrects what I saw as the one flaw in Burnett’s work—not including anything by Mark Lanegan (because pretty much anything off of Bubblegum would’ve worked beautifully).

If nothing else, in my opinion, my mix makes for a pretty great soundtrack, no?

Well, as always –Enjoy Yourself—

‘CAUSE IT’S A MOTHER

funkydrummer

 

FUNKY DRUMMER——-(CLICK TO LISTEN)

(Like it? Buy it)

Hello All,

Today I present a song that I’m sure the majority of you are familiar with in one form or another. I say that with confidence because as hip hop and other sample-based electronic music came prominently onto the scene over a decade after this track’s initial release, this extended vamp by James Brown and the JB Orchestra has gone on to be one of (if not) the most-sampled recordings in history.

However, if you’ve never actually listened to “Funky Drummer” in its entirety you certainly should, as it is a rhythmic expression of pure joy, and an exceptional one at that!

Recorded on November 20th, 1969 at King Studios in Cincinnati, Ohio, “Funky Drummer” was originally released as a two-part 45 in March of 1970. In the period between 1965 and 1975, Brown had 65 songs in the R&B top 40, and 44 of them reached up into the top 10. Over on the pop charts for those same years, Brown had 37 top 40 hits, 6 in the top 10 (Sisario, 2011). As “Funky Drummer” only reached No. 20 On the R&B charts, it was somewhat of a forgotten tune before being revived with its aforementioned prevalence as a sample. With this revival came its first album release, in its 9:13 full-on funk form with the 1986 compilation record, In the Jungle Groove.

In The Jungle Groove

James Brown introduced the world to his “funk-bag” when, incorporating second line feel and “The One Beat” into his R&B sensibilities, he “subordinated harmonic development and traditional pop song form to the increasingly dense rhythmic fabric of the groove” (Doleac, 2013). And groove it does!

(photo by Dan Quest Studio, 1969)

Every now and then a clear harmonic cry gave new suggestions

of a tune that would someday be the only tune in the world and

would raise men’s souls to joy.”

–      Jack Kerouac, On the Road, Part 3, Ch. 10

Can you not feel that joy?— as the band—flowing along with the little forward hops of “Sweet” Charles Sherrell’s bass and the ring-a-ding-licks of Jimmy Nolen’s guitar revolving within the slow-pour carnival of Brown’s organ while the intervals of Maceo Parker’s tenor saxophone sway out from the interlocked click-clack-grace of Stubblefield’s drums and the reliable swagger of the other horns (Eldee Williams, Fred Wesley, Joseph Davis, Richard Griffith)—all together perform a nimble side-step out from the gyral patterns of rhythm and finally succumb to James Brown’s insistence that they:

Turn Over

Turn Over

Turn Over

Soulful Rover

Take me in the change

Take me in the change

Take me in the change

 

They land right back in that loop, but it’s different. They make a deft somersault in place (nothing too flashy); one that surreptitiously takes the ground beneath their feet with them so that even though the whole world has turned, you might have missed it if it weren’t for that sudden swell of elation. James Brown once said of himself…although he wasn’t truly talking about himself at all:

“JAMES BROWN is a concept, a vibration, a dance. It’s not me, the man. JAMES BROWN is a freedom I created for humanity.”

JB drummer “Jabo” Starks has said, “So many things that were done weren’t written, because you just couldn’t. You couldn’t write that feel. Many, many times we’d just play off each other, until James would say, ‘That’s it!’” (Weinger & White, 1991). J.B.’s’ trombonist Fred Wesley would later say “The first rule when you went to work for James Brown: watch James Brown” (Weinger & White, 1991). This rule is demonstrated by the song’s most celebrated moment, which arrives roughly four and a half minutes into the recording and which supplies the tune with its namesake. James Brown tells the band: “Fellas, one more time I want to give the drummer some of this funky soul we got going here.” Brown then turns his attention to eighteen-year-old drummer Clyde Stubblefield, who modern drummer extraordinaire  Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson has called “the most effective drummer that James Brown has ever utilized” (Sisario, 2011). Ever in charge, always directing traffic, James Brown soulfully suggests: “You don’t have to do no soloing, brother, just keep what you got… Don’t turn it loose, ’cause it’s a mother.” And with that, break beat history will be made!

There is nothing demanding about this tune, there is no challenge put before you. You get the sense that they could do it all day and never get bored; somewhere, after the fade-out, the group is still vamping along. It’s easy. It’s all simply an invitation for you to strut your stuff, feel good and go for a stroll—and if this doesn’t help you stroll on over to the other-side of this frost-coated mid-week hump, then I don’t know what will.

As a bonus—for those interested in learning a bit more on how a 7th grade drop-out raised in a whorehouse in Augusta, Georgia went on to become Mr. Dynamite, then Soul Brother No. 1, before eventually being hailed as The Godfather of Soul—here’s Jeremy Marre’s excellent 2003 documentary for PBS’s American Masters series: James Brown: Soul Survivor.

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: ON THE GOOD BLOOD (VOL. 1-3)

Hello All,

Well I’ve got another triptych treat for you here today!

A friend recently asked me to create roughly four hours worth of appropriate tunes for an event she was helping to plan and present. Unfortunately, at the last minute she couldn’t use them. However–despite being put together on some short-notice and the fact that the majority of my albums are still packed up in boxes from a recent move–what I got left holding are what I consider to be some real dope MixTapes with a nice and easy forward groove going for them.

And that’s exactly what I’d like to share with you all.

Hopefully they’ll help you bend your knees, bop your head, and swivel your hips a bit on through this whole supposed “…in like a lion and out like a lamb…showers/flowers…” business we’ve been going through.

YOUR SCENT IS STILL HERE IN MY PLACE OF RECOVERY

Nirvana (photo by Youri Lenquette, Paris, FR. 02/14/94).

 

I had a brief, almost instantaneous glimpse of the real way the world worked and of tunnels criss-crossing under the universe and a sense of infinitely deep abysses folding in upon themselves, I felt my glass slip from my hand, though I no longer quite knew what a glass or a hand were, I could see nothing – rather I saw a lattice-work of silvery metallic threads crossing over and under, over and under one another and filling my whole field of vision. I swayed on my feet, but somebody, probably Paul, caught me by the shoulder. Then the centre of the metallic lattice-work started to thin and break apart and I thought that I glimpsed tall black shapes wavering in a submarine cavern. But this soon resolved itself into a large room filled with pictures and people, although I recognized nobody and nothing. Then I recognized some of the people, but I did not know what they were doing in that place. Finally, I came fully to myself. I was facing Paul and Caroline and I felt as though my brain had just been opened and given a good scrubbing with a wire brush before being closed up again.

A MOUTHFUL OF PENNIES PRESENTS: TULPA HONEY (VOL. 1-3)

—————————————————————————————–                                                                                                     ———————————————

Music can take a man along the Path. Music is the image and the foreshadowing of the harmony that pervades the world and organizes its secret hierarchies. The motions of the spheres in the heavens are in conformity to harmony and proportion, so that, though their passage is made in perfect silence, that passage is musical. The Adept who seeks to make his life a work of art will comport himself in conformity with the harmony that is in all things. Even today’s debased popular ditties, redolent as they are of vaudeville shows and dance halls, speak of higher truths. As Sir Thomas Browne put it, music “is a Hieroglyphical and shadowed lesson of the whole World.”

—Dr. Felton in Satan Wants Me by ROBERT IRWIN (1999)

HELLO ALL,

I’ve got quite a treat for you today! Emanating from and expanding upon the last mix—A Prayer For The New Year of The Tender HorseI present the triptych: Tulpa Honey. Bouncing upon that liminal spot where what-could-be and what-should-be converge with what-is, these three mixtapes also address a whole lot of what I’ve had rolling around in my head lately.

Be sure to snatch up all three for the full thought-form experience!
