REVIEW REBLOG – FETTER – FETTER (The Ego Album)

Wanted for some time to post something about Fetter aka Jessica Tucker and now I can thanks to Yeah I Know it Sucks. Try to visit her site as it has much of her creative sound, video and installation work on it.

Yeah I Know It Sucks

Artist: FETTER
title: FETTER (The Ego Album)
keywords: electronic, experimental, floating, singer-songwriter, tripping, melodic, amsterdam

Jessica Tucker produced, composed, played and sang for you to create a very ear pleasing lovely album under her moniker named ‘Fetter’. It starts very pretty with a melody and all-round sound full of love, warmth and it really works as a lovely welcome. You automatically feel at home and slipped off your shoes at the front door even without someone asking for it.

Settled in a comfortable comfort ‘Fetter’ continues to impress with a well balanced dreamy mixture of trip rhythm and her vocal mixed through each-other to form a clone of Jessica Tuckers to create the perfect glow to tuck yourself away in.

From here it’s time to do something in return, and it’s kind of our task to provide Fetter with what she is singing about in her next song. ‘Feed my…

MONDAY REBLOG – World Listening Day 2015: Mendi + Keith Obadike’s “Blues Speaker [for James Baldwin]” (2015) #WLD2015

It’s Monday reblog time and here is a recent post from Sounding Out in celebration of World Listening Day 2015. I have been following the work of Mendi and Keith Obadike for some time as their art looks in detail at Race and Sound in America. I will repost the previous piece above from SO! Amplifies – recommended. Courtesy to Sounding Out for this post.

Sounding Out!

World Listening Month3For World Listening Day 2015, Sounding Out! is honored to debut Mendi + Keith Obadike’s  new documentary video about their recent large-scale urban installation at The New School’s University Center in New York City, “Blues Speaker [for James Baldwin]” (April 2015), dedicated to writer and public intellectual James Baldwin (1924-1987). –JS

As Mendi + Keith describe, “For Baldwin sound, music, and the blues in particular were sources of inspiration.
