I can't write anything about Prince right now because all I want to do is listen. This radio station is streaming his work in chronological order.
Go check it. I can't even believe I am posting this.
I missed out on sharing some things on social media while I was entering the new world of motherhood. One of the big ones was the passing of Malik "Phife Dawg" Taylor recently. Okayplayer recently announced this full release of the single, "Nutshell", with a final collaboration of two great artists, Dilla and Phife.
Listen, watch, enjoy. Me and my six-week old have been bouncing to it together. May you fly free and may your music live forever, Phife. Thanks for bringing magic to this world for me and countless others.
This party was a staple for me and many of my friends a few years back in Brooklyn, NY. They played some of the best funk and soul found on the planet, they were all from Ohio (where I am also from) and in addition to the amazing shirts created for each party, you were guaranteed to see some serious getting down.
Thanks to Ohio Party vet, David Osborne, for sharing this at a time when my nostalgia for all the good things about NYC is at an all-time high. You made my day, my week... and a lot more. Long live Ohio Party.
this is a delicate and purposeful album i just caught wind of from gilles peterson's instafeed... after a quick run-through listen, i highly recommend you go check her out as well. absolutely beautiful.
We lost a great today. Let's remember him well.
Happy New Year! Guets Neus!
I'd love to take a little detour from "the yoga" for a moment and share two things I love: music and aesthetic. Oh, and vinyl. My own collection is a sad fraction of what these collections offer, but it is amazing to see these and the care in which they are presented. My pals over at I LOVE VINYL have some collections that truly challenge some of these on both scale and beauty, but alas they were not featured here. Please take a look and, oh, how about Haruki Murakami's jazz collection?!?!? What?!
Loscil has long been one of my favorite artists to "pop in" and press play during practice, due to the super subtle and ethereal nature of his work; a perfect backdrop of open sound in which to practice asana (or meditation perhaps, though I haven't tried that). Last month, Scott Morgan (Loscil's real name) released Adrift, an app for iPhone and Android that offers four "tracks" of continuous play. This is my review as a yoga teacher and lover of music.Read More
