A WGOM debut. Mrs. Hayes & I saw the Sons of Kemet in the People’s Republic in October 2018. They were touring in support of their album, Your Queen is a Reptile, which was one of my favorite albums of 2018. Shabaka talks about the idea behind the name of the album & each track in a brief commentary at the end of the video.
I watched this, so now you have to too.
I probably listened to less new music this year than I ever have before. I'm going to try to remedy that some in 2018. But this is one I've been digging a lot. This version is kind of crazy... I mean, there's a tuba. But the song proper is awesome.
As I've tried to suggest, there is so much simple joy to be found in music. That's why, when the time comes, this is what I want played on my way out.
we had a sesame street VHS at the preschool i used to work at with various songs. one rainy day, i saw this track when we put it in (for my first time), and it was then stuck in my head for a number of days. also, happy birffday, O.
(sorry, AMR, but you have to admit this is worth more than 1 star, yes?)
