FBA Mixtape Vol.1


Posted on : 01-11-2009 | By : festinhabobanoape

Muito antes do grunge e do selo “mtv acústico” o Violent Femmes já abria caminho para estas sonoridades com “Blister in the Sun” , de 1983. Folk, Rock, Punk, tá tudo junto ali…Depois de 9 anos sem aparecer este ano lançaram um cover de “Crazy” de Gnarls Barkley. Ouça aqui.

Em “Gronlandic Edit” a banda filosofa sobre religião (leia a letra abaixo). Logo após soltar um “I just want to hold the divine” a melodia é levada às alturas procurando o tal divino uma oitava acima na escala apoiada numa polifonia harmônica como num coral de igreja.

“Winchester Cathedral” foi gravada por músicos de estúdio contratados. Quando a música atingiu o 1º lugar nos charts americanos Geoff Sthephens teve que contratar as pressas uma banda de aluguel para conseguir excursionar.

(The surrealists were just) nihilists with good imaginations

I am satisfied hiding in our friend’s apartment
Only leaving once a day to buy some groceries
Daylight I’m so absent minded nighttime meeting new anxieties
So am I erasing myself? Hope I’m not erasing myself

I guess it would be nice to give my heart to a god
But which one which one do I cho-o-o-o-ose?
Oh the church is filled with losers, psycho or confused
I just want to hold the divine in mine and forget, forget,
forget all of the beauty’s wasted

Let’s fall back to Earth and do something pleasant
We fell back to earth like gravity’s bitches
Physics makes us all its bitches

I guess it would be nice to help in your escape
From patterns your parents designed
All the party people dancing for the indie star
But he’s the worst faker by far
In the set I forget,
forget all of the beauty’s wasted

Guess it could be nice show me that things can be nice
You’ve got my back in the city you’ve got my back
‘Cause I don’t want to panic
