Music Monday: That Swing + Music Matching with Alex

musicmonday

I haven’t had much time for recording and I keep flitting from one writing project to another because I’m mainly focused on my parents coming up with my grandmother to visit for a week and I want the apartment perfect. So while all that other stuff might come out as one big sneeze I can at least make some time for a music group that I’ve been meaning to talk a bit about here.

Today our ears and eyes will be graced by the musical and dancing styles of Caravan Palace, a band that blends electronic with 1930’s swing band in a way that’s weirdly natural and coolly hip. Nobody told me about them, I didn’t hear them at a party, and I didn’t go to a performance. No, this musical discovery was made by one of the three ways that I typically come across interesting music these days: someone provided me with a link to a music video which had more videos in the recommended sidebar, which had more videos in the recommended sidebar, which led to a music video played over anthropomorphic animals involved in a bar fight at a strip club.

Yeah, I probably had to check out more work from this band, and so I did. It’s all good but the lyrical information is usually for the album version of any given song, which isn’t as reliable for the videos as they tend to utilize a shorter mix. But give it a listen if you’re into fusion and, hey, if you’re not then try a new splash in your coffee. 😉

Get into the swing of it!

Sassy sisters,
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.
Silly swingers,
Get your feeling under spell.
Sassy sisters,
Come and taste as sweet as can be.
Silly swingers.

Hey man, what’s the matter,
What’s he doing standing up there shaking like that?
Ah, well the boys are gonna tell you what to do.
Listen to ’em.

Dressed in nothing.
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.
Listen to ’em.
Dressed in nothing.
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.
Dressed in nothing.
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.

Dressed in nothing.
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.

Sassy sisters,
Dressed in nothing but silk underwear.
Silly swingers,
Get your feeling under spell.

Come and taste as sweet as can be.
Silly swingers.
