The Great Coronaholio. Bring him your TP.
I thought your song was going to win! I loved it. I was actually listening to the full Tom Misch album yesterday.I did not realise we were getting coronavirus education till halfway through the ceremony.
A couple in isolation won
Happy to get 3rd, I honestly didn't even expect top 8 with the competition but it's definitely one of my favorite 2020 album releases. Thanks to all the voters.
It is a very refreshing album. I've been consumed with that Nightrider single for a while now, the dreamer I am. I call this kind of thing soundscaping, appeal to imagination using sounds. The drum work by Yussef Dayes is quite underrated too.I thought your song was going to win! I loved it. I was actually listening to the full Tom Misch album yesterday.
Have you read their (Misch & Dayes) interview, or just thought this had a Radiohead vibe? Good catch. Just read one interview where they mention Radiohead being an influence for this project. Listening to Festival again... yes, the drums have a Radiohead type sound/programming and then the eerie/drowsy 'oohs and aahs'. 'In Rainbows' type vibe.Me and Barbara will lose to the Radiohead song lol.
Tom: That’s the thing about collaborating.
Yussef: Yeah, I’m into a lot of jazz, obviously. My dad’s Jamaican, so reggae music too, but at the same time I’m into bands like Talk Talk and Radiohead and just bringing those different elements of what I’m into in this record really takes it into a different direction.
Tom: I think the collaboration does work well because we do have similar influences, but we also have different ones. We agree on certain things, but some things I wouldn’t have done without Yussef. I reckon he’s probably into darker stuff, and that brought out a darker side in me. I do have that in me; people just think that because Geography is so summery, I don’t have that in me. Collaboration brings out different things.
So who were you listening to during the creation of the album? Who were you channelling?
Tom: We were channelling so many different things, and it was very day to day, like what’s happening in the studio right now: Yussef’s playing these drums, that sounds cool, I’m gonna try adding some reverb or some other stuff here. It’s like an experiment. I think we channelled a lot of Radiohead, some ‘80s and ‘70s music, the way they recorded their instruments in that era.
Yussef: Yeah, there were a lot of different influences. Obviously, a lot of hip-hop influences—we’ve got Freddie Gibbs on the “Nightrider” track. We recorded that with a guy called Miles James in his studio, kind of getting that analogue sound. Even Bill Withers was an inspiration. But each track is its own thing—no one track is the same.
Hello! Well, we simply have the gypsy version of this song. I have just found it before the game and found it very interesting. Ajda Pekkan has some high quality stuff.
does it have to be addressed at someone or generally about love/eros?I decided to pick the theme "Love Songs" 😁💚 because its Valentine's day in Brazil next friday.
The rules are basically two:
Hope you dont hate the theme mwahaha.
- Any style of music is allowed (rock, country, rap, noise-rock, whatever), but the song must have lyrics (no instrumentals allowed).
- It t needs to be related to romantic love, eros. Eros refers to "passionate love" or romantic love. So its forbidden philia, storge or agape love (between family, friends or selfless love (charity).
No, just tell the manager why the song is about romantic love.What if a song is in a non-English language? Are lyrics/ translation obligatory then?
Doesnt need to be adressed, can be about love in general and it is allowed songs about sadness, breakups, euphoria, murdering your ex-husband etc, as long it is associated with romantic love.does it have to be addressed at someone or generally about love/eros?
i've sent a few killers on TF now ehh...
