If you need more proof that Dennis Quaid is a cool dude. And a great singer. This is from the Amazon series Goliath season 3 which I would recommend.
Samba-esque funky pop from Brazil. I don’t pretend to know what’s going on here, but I like what I see and hear. Apparently, some of the scenes depict an authentic Umbanda ritual. I enjoyed it so much that I listened to the whole album (Youtube, Spotify).
I quote a translated snippet from Rolling Stone Brazil:
“Rito de Passá”, by the voice of MC Tha, is a powerful act of celebrating the constant movement, the constant transformation. It seeks the understanding of the now, too, be it painful or euphoric. Nothing is static, everything changes.
Check out the Coffee Beak Sessions for some very cool funky world music from the 1970s.
Amazing how Kadavar can recreate that 70s rock sound.
Instrumental post-metal/rock. Very cool live video. Check out the full album.
Chinese orchestra version and an English version of the crowdsourced anthem for Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.
Jasmin from Jess and the Ancient Ones has released a solo album under the moniker Jess by the Lake. It’s a solid bluesy rock album with some hints to Jess and the Ancient Ones, but more grounded and without all the psychedelics. I think Under the Red Light Shine is a particularly strong song. Great buildup.
