I wish I was a priest. I wish I wore buffalo horns and an ivory orb as a mitre on my head. High holidays and times of despair- what to do and more importantly what to wear decided, unyieldingly glam, form untraceable beneath the pooling blue. I wish I had that far off look, holding up a white flag to the crazed fertility coming between me and the great, pure ocean. ————————————– Laura Cronk called us from New York, NY.

Outside my therapist’s office, three men are planting ferns, pruning bushes, cutting back the tangled vines that twine across the building’s bricks, covering them in green, and when I reach the door one of them has risen, and nods his head, and it seems a nod that verges on pity, as if he’s seeing into the room I’ll enter to empty myself of grief and wants to offer one gesture before turning back to the roses, a projection I should share but never will. Inside, I settle in the chair across from her, the woman I see each week despite my fear of being seen. Have you thought over, she asks, what we talked about last time? She’s trying to get me to forgive myself. She wants to free me of the song I play over and over in my mind, which governs every part of me: nerves, veins, fingers, ego. I sing myself my sins: Clear, dry gin. The man I loved (my roving heart). The fringes that I occupied. My father in his hospital bed and I too late. What severing it must take to let this go. And now she says, moving a little closer to the edge of her chair, really seeing me, or wanting to, I had a patient once, in a place far from here, who, in the impenetrable fog of her disorders, and guided by some sick version of herself, killed her three little sons. And when she came to see me, after the fever of her sin had burned the memory to fine dust, she didn’t even know what she had done. And I had to decide—do I tell her what she did? And now an ambulance goes by outside. I follow the noise of its thin siren dragging itself down the street until it’s gone, and those men, I suppose, are finishing their work, satisfied by having given life to that garden, and the garden, content in being tended to, everything green and free to bloom. She says: I didn’t tell her. ————————————– Chelsea Bunn called us from Albuquerque, NM.

Désormais, tout est permis : on peut être fan du label néerlandais de techno hardcore Thunderdome et apprécier l’énergie du rap le plus provoquant, celui de LIM par exemple. En mélangeant le gabber (une forme particulièrement tapageuse de techno batave) et des a cappella rap français, Evil Grimace a créé un genre baptisé « Frapcore » : des punchlines scandées a tue-tête, des basses d’une violence foudroyante, et l’acharnement des drums comme des claques dans la gueule à répétition… Il dissèque ici son hymne des free partys, le morceau emblématique et générationnel « 3 Litres ».

You can tell a lot about someone from the way they treat the animals in their lives. When storyteller Cristal Willcox's beloved cat Kashmir passed away, her friends gathered for the kind of midnight funeral that could only take place in Louisiana. In another time and place, storyteller Randall Ross embarks on a lovelorn holiday acid trip during which a talking feline encourages him to commit cat burglary. It's a weird episode.

Le rap est devenu la nouvelle pop music, Myth Syzer élabore des beats acidulés et synthétiques comme des bonbons Haribo. Pour la série Beatmakers, il fait d’abord l'inventaire de ses influences 90’s, du R&B de R.Kelly au boom-bap de J. Dilla qui lui a inspiré son nom. Il décompose les pistes de son fameux single « Le Code », le premier track ou il assume pleinement de chanter au micro, mais aussi celui où il démontre vraiment que son rap est soluble dans une pop « à la Etienne Daho ». Muddy Monk, le rappeur Ichon et l’excentrique Bonnie Banane le rejoignent sur ce tube aussi doux qu'imparable. Du rap qui chante l’amour, avec glamour. Autres extraits de l’épisode : - Aaliyah : « At your best (You are love) » - Joke : « Kyoto » - Sade : « War of the Hearts » - Etienne Daho et Françoise Hardy: « Et si je m’en vais avant toi » Dans cette deuxième saison, dix nouveaux producteurs français (King Doudou, Laurent Garnier, Trackbastardz, Don Nodey...) racontent le « making of » de leur plus grand tube.
