Amplifier Lyrics

Pupajim - 'Amplifier'

Galang my selector

Turn on the bass and the amplifier

Play that tune on the turntable

Fresh dubplate for the people

Galang my selector

Turn on the bass and the amplifier

Play that tune on the turntable

Fresh dubplate for the people

Can you feel the bass line from the speakerbox?

Everybody move and rocks

On the dance floor

Can you feel the bass line from the speakerbox?

Everybody move and rock

On the dance floor

Galang my selector


Galang my selector

Turn on the bass and the amplifier

Play that tune on the turntable

Fresh dubplate for the people

Galang my selector

Turn on the bass and the amplifier

Play that tune on the turntable

Fresh dubplate for the people

Get up stand up and rock x2

Get up stand up and rock Pupascotty's on the block

Get up stand up and rock, Three Musketeers are on the block

The best soul LP I've heard in years...

Modern soul (though you couldn't tell it's not late-60s) from the The Menahan Street Band/Budos Band/Daptone gang with a killer vocal performance from Charles Bradley. It brought me out of blogging semi-retirement just to post this gem.

Broken Social Scene - Forgiveness Rock Record

I'm happy to say this record is everything I had hoped for and more. It still has the classic jams, pop songs, and aural controversy, but now the gang sounds like they are branching out a bit, experimenting in the studio with new textures. Amazingly they all hold together as 'songs' so I can imagine that they may gain a few fans. The John McEntire influence (Tortoise, Sea and Cake) does not go unnoticed - in a good way. It sounds like Broken Social Scene, just a little more grown up. Amazing.

BTW, wish John a happy birthday to John on April 9, he turns the big four-oh.

A great collection of fuzzy Matador Records tracks.

ROCK - Peter Wolf Crier

The first thing I thought of when I heard this record was the sounds of clean Swedish pop bands put through the crunchy filter of White Stripes or the Black Keys. Quite good. I think they are self-published

Losing My Edge - Basic Channel

Coming out of Detroit techno of the late 80s, two Berliners Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald created a style super-influential minimal dub-techno that has continued to morph into their fantastic Rhythm & Sound reggae influenced work. I was glad when LCD dropped their name since these guys have been so great for so long. A real piece of history for music fans.

Rock - The XX

I feel a little mainstream posting this but if you don't know this record you will probably hear it in some Ossington dinner joint and wonder what the hell it is. Pretty easy to like. I guess easy is a bit vanilla but once and a while you just want some music without the big challenge. Know what I mean?


Jazz - Sun Ra

A stellar Mingus style record that is actually two records, We Travel The Spaceways from 1956 and Bad and Beautiful from 1961. For Sun Ra, this is extremely easy to get into, and is freaky good fun.


AfroFunk - Legends of Benin

Another stunning release from Analog Africa. I am seriously freaking out right now. A good mix of deep funky African grooves, James Brown breaks, and deep Latin track thrown in for good measure. This is a must.


Rock - zZz

It seems like someone loves Death From Above 1979. Who doesn't? Stripped down to drums and organ. This is a pretty interesting and varied record. Maybe a sprinkling of Jim Morrison? Straight outta Holland. Thanks Henan for the tip.

A crazy cockfighting art video for Running With The Beast - youTube it.

Rock - Surf City

It's funny that when I hear a fantastic song these days I'm thinking to myself 'this would make a great iPod commercial song'. Well this whole EP is like that.

Basically 'The Strokes' go surfing. Love it crazy time.

See also: pavement, sonic youth, the clean, velvet undergound, the jesus and mary chain, the beach boys, the zombies, the boredoms


Lo-Fi - Kurt Vile

Man I love this record. Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Arthur Russel's World of Echo... this is a gem. Not everyone will get it, but I love its simplicity and devotion to a single riff. Basically just vocals and guitar with occasional drums. Plenty of echo and reverb.

I love the fact that the entire album sounds like it was recorded in one go.

Rock - Dark Was The Night (compilation)

Wow this is a great comp! This is a must-have. I haven't even gotten to every track yet since I keep replaying over and over the first cd. I'm assuming that this is the only place you can find these tracks, since they are probably one-offs for this long-running benefit compilation. Kev, you once again manage to give me a little more info than I'm comfortable with.

Come on: Kevin Drew, Feist, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Arcade Fire, Yo La Tengo, Iron & Wine, Cat Power and more... For real?

ROCK - Anne Soldaat

Great rock band out of the Netherlands, courtesy of my friend Henan, this is a great effort, a solid pop record. Some songs like Pray For Delay remind me of REM if I actually liked them, others like Runaway remind me of mid-70s Bowie/T-Rex/Supertramp, and finally Teenage View has a sick early-90s hook in the chorus.

ROCK - Animal Collective

Don't stare at this too long....

Yes, I know I need to get out more, find some bands that DON'T remind me of my love for mid-70s Beach Boys but hey, they are probably my favorite indie outfit going these days. Amazing production, so inventive, you have no idea where they are going, but you are happy to be taken on the ride.
