WWTB: September 23rd, 2014

Some really solid releases this week. Can’t get enough of the new alt-J.

theworldatlargewzly:

On September 20th, 2014, Lily Allen, with opening act Samsaya, played at House of Blues Boston.  The crowd was filled with young and old, all fans of Lily alike.  Only three rows from the stage, I had a spectacular view of the stage and performers.  The opening act, Samsaya, hails from Norway and last night was their final performance of the tour.  Bouncing around in banana-patterned pants, lead singer Sampda Sharma got the crowd pumped with the help of her bandmates.  Their performance charged the crowd, and their enthusiasm was tangible.  Eventually, Lily, looking fabulous in a short pink crop top, a baby-bottle-embroidered skirt, and black heels came out with her backup dancers.  Despite having a sore throat, Lily did not come close to disappointing.  Strutting around stage with a jug of what was perhaps lemonade and smoking an e-cigarette, she talked openly about the state of the world as she sees it, her two children, and her husband.  Her performance was unforgettable, as her costume changes spanned from four-leaf clover pasties with a black bikini and lacy poncho-dress, to a onesie of clashing colors and shapes with massive platform boots.  In what was the fastest turnaround for an encore I’ve ever seen, she appeased the crowd’s chants of “LILY LILY” with one more song, this time her backup dancers dawning dog masks while Lily explains how hard it is out here for a bitch.  After the show, I had the pleasure of meeting all the members (but the drummer) of Samsaya, and they were lovely and gracious.  Lily and Samsaya put on a terrific show, one that I won’t soon forget.

When last asked to describe SPLASHH to a friend, the best description I could come up with was “Pixies, but with sand in their hair.” I still think is the best description that anybody’s come up with thus far (except for Ben Homewood’s on Beat mag, when he said that their music “makes you want to kiss things” – which, yeah, I totally get).

Check them out in their tripped-out, technicolor joyfest video for All I Wanna Do, above, and then get ready to make eyes across the room with your last summer love on September 26th at 8 PM in Alumnae Ballroom (it’ll be free if you go to Wellesley, and $5 if you’re an off-campus guest with college ID).

Come to WZLY’s general meeting! Mandatory (in the groovy, groovy way) if you’re a DJ. Also mandatory if you wanna become one.

It’ll all be happening at 8 PM tomorrow (Sunday, 9/14) in PNW (that’s Pendleton West, kids) 212. Especially bring your first year friends so that we can indoctrinate them good and early. Thanks!

XOXO, WZLY

Ibeyi - River

Ibeyi is made up of twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz. Cuban-born but raised in Paris, they sing in English, Spanish, French and Yoruba. Ibeyi means “twins” in Yoruba and in West Africa, where their father was from, it is four times more likely for twins to be born.

River is steeped in Yoruba tradition, from the use of a Batá drum, to the lore woven into the lyrics. But the song isn’t merely a celebration of heritage, the bass line plucks with electronica and their voices are tinged with static. It is a kind of representation of these unreal women.

Their expansive hair, bare faces and wide open eyes are entrancing. It’s hard not to stare directly at their paled lips as they sing, raspy sweet harmonies. But it’s misdirection—you almost miss the hands of the men, one clutching the t-shirt, the other behind their heads. You begin to notice that every time one of the Diaz twins sings it is the hand that pushes and pulls her out of water. Are they being cleansed—baptized? Or drowned?

If you want more background into the twins, their influences and their heritage, I highly recommend you check out the post written by okayafrica about them.
