Sudan Archives – Confessions

Here is some fresh R&B featuring a prominent violin. You can also listen to the full album.

Deichkind – No Party

Hilarious video for Keine Party (No Party) by the popular hip hop and electro band Deichkind. The concept is obviously inspired by Kap Bambino and Techno Girl. Nevertheless, I like this stuff. The sophisticated dancer is non other than famous actor Lars Eidinger.

MC Tha – Rito de Passá

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.
