Hello All! Hello World!

I said well hello there.

It’s certainly been a rough week or two around here, but here we are with another 80 minutes of music compiled & mixed by A Mouthful Of Pennies; yes it’s the new MixTape: Royal Jelly. As Jack Kerouac once wrote: “We seek to find new phrases; we try hard, we writhe and twist and blow; every now and then a clear harmonic cry gives new suggestions of a tune, a thought, that will someday be the only tune and thought in the world and which will raise men’s souls to joy.”

To me the trio of Prince tunes (all associated with his 1984 masterpiece Purple Rain as b-sides, and to my ear, other than the backing vocals by Sheila E., it sounds like Prince is performing all that you hear on these tracks) that open this MixTape perfectly exemplify what I wrote and quoted in my little essay about this genius back in MAY 04 2016:

Prince had plenty of confidence and little hang-ups. That’s one thing I’ve always loved about listening to his music, he was telling you that there was a true spirituality to celebrating this thing called life with “dance, music, sex, romance” or “D.M.S.R.” His former tour manager Alan Leeds was recently quoted as saying “For him the love of God and the sexual urges we feel are one and the same somehow. For him it all comes from the same root inside a human being. God planted these urges and it’s never wrong to feel that way. The urge itself is a holy urge.”

Or as Touré (author of I Would Die 4 U: Why Prince Became an Icon) put it: “[…] for him there was no need to separate the things we do on Saturday night from the things we do on Sunday morning.”

Plato said: Eros leads to Gnosis. As I recently read on the website, plotinus, Eros should be seen as:

[…] a liberating agent who releases and activates the creative process of the mind. Eros inspires and opens the channel of intuition to the higher and abstract understanding and communion with beauty and truth. The myth of Eros and Psyche describes in detail the inner process of transformation. In fact, Eros cannot be separated from his beloved Psyche, since they are united by a secret and sacred bond, invisible and unconscious in man. In fact, man’s psyche remains filled with erotic, sensual, carnal desires that keep him and his mind trapped on the physical plane along with his emotions and consciousness. But a seeker must transmute the attraction of Eros and awaken the bond with his psyche so that he can rise towards the “beloved,” the invisible golden thread that links his consciousness to the universal qualities of beauty and love.

The gifts of Eros affect the emotional and thought processes of humanity, especially those of a seeker who has to learn how to open up and integrate these gifts in his psyche. From the lowest and most physical levels of consciousness to the most spiritual ones, Eros remains forever present, gradually transforming the inner fire into pure light. Eros operates in every living creature, and Greek poetry and philosophy describe how nature partakes of the gift of Eros. Hence we could say that Eros’ contribution to humanity is not only inherent in man’s psyche, but that it is also involved in the process that awakens the ego to its true nature, the beauty and unconditional love of the soul.

Eros implies a yearning for unity, harmony, and completion.

Yes, most of Prince’s work was concerned with sex, but then again most of it was concerned with spirituality as well. These seem to be things he had no trouble reconciling. Yes, by others’ standards and ethics he was vulgar. Remember it was Prince’s music (“Darling Nikki” and its reference to female masturbation in particular) that was used by Mary “Tipper” Gore and her Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) as an example of unsuitable content when pushing for the use of a Parental Advisory label for recorded music. However, with Prince the erotic might be visceral, explicit, but it was rarely truly crude or misogynist. When it came to women (and God) he was always seeking to find “the answer to the question of u.” He adored and respected women and felt a sense of wonder in their presence. Particularly Prince respected women as artists and for their intelligence. He respected and acknowledged female sexuality. Prince wanted to make love with them; Prince wanted to fuck them. Like he says to the woman in question in the eight minute epic “Joint 2 Joint”: “You’re making me proud to be a human being.”

That is not negated by his lustful follow through and the come-on:

And if we’re ever naked in the same machine/I’m gonna lick it, baby, joint 2 joint

Above all, what I love about listening to his work is that yes he wanted you to believe he is a sexy motherfucker, but I think he wanted you the listener–no matter what or who you are–to fully appreciate that yeah you’re a sexy motherfucker too!

Also on this here mix you’ll hear another song from Alela Diane’s brand new and truly wonderful record, Cusp. Of the record she has said,“This music is about motherhood. Even just by saying that, it feels like people will write you off. It’s like you’ve suddenly lost the charm of being youthful and even attainable––you’ve been commoditized as available. There is not a big place in the music industry for 30-something women with kids making music. Maybe we can create that space.” I highly recommend this one.

All The Night Without Love” the 2006 tune by Elvis Perkins features not only some lyrics that I adore, but more so I’m always amazed by the cadence and phrasing he uses to deliver such lines as:

 
“Touch 
me” 
the graphic reads
on the 
magnetic 
athletic insole sheet
and it goes 
all its life without love
Tell me can you 
imagine going to
“Got milk? 
dot 
com”
Do you go 
all the night without love
without love?

There’s the abrasive “Long Way Home” that closes the 2001 LP ShangriLa Dee Da by Stone Temple Pilots. Despite its caustic sound I’ve always appreciated Dean DeLeo’s contorted guitar that accompanies the song’s fade and Weiland’s repetition of:

Tell me
Is it more of the same and
Where can I find it?
Tell me
Is she fighting for air and
Where does she come from?
Tell me
 

Oh and there’s two sonic oddities by the musician Anon, who also sometimes went by the moniker Wynn. His great new project Hidden Beams is just making its debut and you can listen and learn a bit more about that over here.

Well, there’s all this and a whole lot more! So…
