KANA NDOD KURAMBA MURUME




RARE SPRINKLES ON THE DONUT

GREETINGS FROM THE WARMER CLIMATES OF THE WORLD

these tones suggest a convenient relationship with the world around us. if only we looked for the interconnectedness at all!

what a trip when we listen to the sounds of the world instead of our own backyard.

:55 little shaker wants to contribute!

1:15 WOW hey friends! what beautiful voices you have whyd you stay quiet for so long. absolutely spirited music

just like drinking spirits with friends on the dock of the bay!!

its great to hear word without knowing them. its like playing a game of PANTOMIME with friends! WHAT are they trying to tell us. we can only listen and feel the message in the bottle, (the bottle being a song, in this case)

the playful droning of the MBIRA never seems to tire on my ears!

they sing for JOY
they sing for SUNSHINE
they sing for TOGETHER
they sing for SONG!


J S T S

JOY SUNSHINE TOGETHER SONG!!

my little heart smiles at their great music.

3:36 WEEEOOOOO A ROLLER COASTER DROP! lahahahah she just went DOWN a big hill! she took us with her! thanks young missus. i dont speak your language but i still feel what your saying

5:35 and a comfortable tinkering. our friends have perhaps gone away or to rest.


RATING - CAUTION : MAY CAUSE DANCING AND SMILES










UROMBO


:33 gentle singing.

:45 the melodies that weave in and out of this music are fully and functionally BREATHTAKING!!! the phrases, the arcs, the interwoven..

this is not a song


this is an aural TAPESTRY OF AFRICAN SOUNDS

1:37 how can you not fall in love with that?!

1:43 TELL ME!!

this is great! the HONESTY and RARITY

2:07 YEEOEOHH!!!! YA YA

1:35 BOO BO OB OBOBO OBOOBO!!!


1:55 the MBIRA has something to add

2:25 YES TELL ME

the people in this music seem utterly blissed with the idea of singing with there friends. and wow what sounds when friends come TOGETHER and SING there LITTLE YET EFFECTIVE Hearts into the world.

TRACK 1 TUNDRA

like a large bumbling bee we are introduced to SPIRIDON!!

on we ping. humble vibrations of the mouth instrument which we may know as something like the OZARK HARP or JEWS HARP vibrations.

this instrument seems to ring in harmony with itself, like a complete spectrum of all MUSICAL IDEAS at once.

like white light, it contains all sounds at all times.

2:15 AND ALL OF THAT WAS JUST A WARM UP HERE WE GO

THERE IS NO SPECIAL EFFECTS HERE FOLKS !!!!! SPIIRRRRIIDDDONNN!!!!

is it possible to compare this to any music in the west? NO we must NEVER do that , WOW! so exhilirating, these is RARE the skill of this musician... ahhh...

3:04, a great ascension to the upper most of our imaginations....


3:28 not even the most recent DUBSTEP material could contrast the amazing frequencies of this man and his small tool for music, perhaps this is less music and instead a direct translation of  SOUL to SOUND



RATING - IM ALL SHOOK UP













TRACK 4 LENA WALTZ



1 2 3 1 2 3

grab your partner by the hand

1 2 3 1 2 3

AMAZING vibrato displayed by this fellow....

when we hear new sounds we are inclined to want to compare them to sounds we know, but when we leave them as they are we are welcomed into a world of INTENSE wonderment

where the ground is made of rainbow things
where the brains of many know no hate
where the desert comes before the meal but you can always have room for more
where GREEN is the prevalent colour.

RATING - TASTES LIKE KIWI (ear taste, i mean)













TRACK 13 MIRROR OF THE POND


one fizzling note..

joined by more "yoyoyooyoyooyoyyo"....

the yo yo note.


a rare note

only played

on

this

harp





1:50 and the party begins

i realize now this i believe must be music for meditations. i hope i am not devaluing it by adding words to its mystique. one should enjoy this only in a dark room, in utmost silence with the eyes closed. i understand now.
RATING- . . .  . . . .  .

a smaller cello in an even smaller guitar: BRENT BEATLASH and HA!MAN

WHY: no reason, just because
WHO: BEATLASH + HA!MAN
WHERE TO LISTEN ALONG: http://beatlash.bandcamp.com/



what do a CELLO-IST and a GUITARER have in common?

nothing

lets see what happens

//MJ








1/3

the tones.. small rain drops...?? but these rain drops are of strange colour and texture.

BEAUTY

is in the voice

of this singer.


ahhhhh

the gentle pitter pattering of these gobbish drops slowly fall and KERSPLOOSH onto the street.

:56 WOW a cello a voice a throat singer? what UNIMAGINABLE GENTLENESS

1:11 oh ... this..... it sounds like an indigenous music. a music native to all and every man. this is folk , this is classical and un classist, this is togetherness. i am the putty and these sounds mold me , each vibration traveling into my brain and riding the rhythms of new neural passages ...

i actually feel PHYSICALLY COMFORTED.

2:32 sing on you crazy amethyst


RATING - who needs a rainforest when BEATLASH and HA!MAN fall from the sky of sound


2/3

a similar embarkment. this music could be very old or very new, i am not sure.

:46 sinking and sorrowful melodies clamor on

YOU the listener, do you not feel like a you are once again a child, a baby, and all you have to rely on is your imagination? before you had "knowledge" of the world around you, you relied just on instinct and creative thoughts to explain things. i feel this is what this music is, like a creation story to explain how we got here, only im not yet sure what it wants to explain. what does it explain to you? there is somethign very important here

this is a wonderful embrace. the lack of a STEADY BEAT (BEATLASH?!) really takes the foundation away its like BEING ALIVE IN THE SKY ON THE FOURTH OF JULY?

2:20 CRUNCH that guitar makes some wonderful vibrations.

RATING - hold me a little longer



3/3


i regret to inform our listeners this is the LAST STOP!! lets enjoy what we have



guitar monologue

:32 SUCH SORROW in one note?? how is this possible


:45 some sounds, i feel like i am there


:52 the guitar raises the voice


1:00 OH ITS LIEK THAT!! the piano LITERALLY GIGGLES at its smaller friend, GUITAR

1:20 PIANO SAYS "HEY WHY NOT? I HAVE MY OWN CAR ILL GIVE YOU A RIDE FOR FREE"

SMALL GUITAR ANSWERS BACK

1:40 "BUT HOW CAN I TRUST YOU"

P- because i am very steady

G- i am afraid, i am used to other ways

2:06

P- but i am so beautiful for a stranger, trust my adventure

2:16

G- im just not used to this! you are going to fast! allow me to slow down

2:30

P+G-lets be gentle right now



2:48

P- HAHAHA I STEER CRAZY!!! I am in control but you get afraid!

G- yes i am timid dont hurt me! i trust you though!

3:12

P-THEN JOURNEY WE SHALL! NEW SOUNDS FOR YOU TO LEARN FROM


(the little guitar was scared but he knew to learn he had to open his ears to become everything he could the secrets of the journey was to trust that which he was always afraid to - himself ((and the piano)) the piano was his friend now, was not sure if he would see him)

3:50

G- i am strong enoguih to sing on my own in a NEW WAY i have USED THESE RARE LESSON THAT PIANO HAS SHOWED ME and have become a better version of me! NO MORE TIMID! I AM PROUD

4:30

G - WHAT IN GOOD GOLLY IS THAT?!

*ENTER THE OWL*

O- I AM A MALEVOLENT OWL SENT FROM THE SKY TO WRONG DO YOU , ARE YOU AFRAID?

G -  i will sing on you may not corrupt me

and so the owl knew that GUITAR was strong willed and turned into a cellist

RATING - SING AND REJOICE AND THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOUR


*******************************
*******************************


wow friends. wow.

when i listen to this new music i always take the same journey with you and i NEVER know what to expect anymore. when listening to this music i think all the clocks in the world stop and EVERYTHING existed in a pure moment for once.

i very much hope HA!MAN and BEATLASH would make and deliver more music to my ears.

if YOU have HONEST AND RARE music please send it to me here or at

we found A GIRAFFE .... UNDER A TABLE?

WHO: A GIRAFFE
WHERE CAN YOU HEAR IT : http://agiraffe.bandcamp.com/album/under-a-table


these guys, i took a quick sampling when this one was sent in and new i had something RARE and HONEST. this is PERFECT for MUSICJUSTUS i thought. we dont normally get a chance to hear such heart stirring musics, but MUSICJUSTUS is willing to go there, he will always weed out the jungle for the most RARE and EXOTIC fruits and fruit flies.


do yourself a favour and give this one MULTIPLE LISTENS. A GIRAFFE presents us UNDER A TABLE

LETS GO!!!!

//MJ












A RANGER MAN


CHORDS!!! MAGIC!!! EVERY CHORD A FLICK OF WAND CONJURING UP NEW FEELINGS AND GESTICULATIONS!

:24 groovin high and i am REALLY excited for whats inside of me now thanks to A GIRAFFE

this is incredibly thoughtful music

:47 ok, decrescendo, lowering in intensity a little, the texture thins out

1:03 BEAUTIFUL sax solo starts sweeping in, it's like a leaf blowing in the wind only to be caught in the thumb and forefinger of a small child and he runs, and he makes a mask of the leaf, and he protects the leaf, he flies it through the air, he trows the leaf up high and it again, and again it continues its journey

2:12 the piano hints at new serpentinissimo ideas. WOW what a live concert this would be. these are real musicians reallly making music for the RARE heads out there.

the DRUMMER here, we should all take note of his tremendous ability to fill out the pallette without blowin hot air. his tenderness on the drums, where as most treat the set like they are tenderizing meat, this drummer uses his sticks to coax out RARE TONES

RATING - some sort of POWERED RANGER man




539

amazing sticking pattern acts lie a propeller as the melody makes navigate some interesting terrains.

this is a MODERNIZED DAVE BRUBECK , precisely worked out, meticulous in its craft, yet free its spirits. this is why jazz and classical music no longer need to be two different things but instead share in the gifts and become the new music

the new music is free and meticulous

the new music comes without judgement from the listeners because it is not a genre, it is everything.

1:31 angular things tickle the piano keys

1:45 STABB STABB STABBING this piano man has quite a nice sense of things

2:01 THIS SAX PLAYER THOUGH!! he makes a joke out of these lurching rhythms and creates beautiful music atop the rippling waves of a harmony.

2:46 another beautiful gesture of low intensity. the TRUE MUSIC comes with fluctuations of intensity and rawness, few understand this, i am very lucky to have found this

3:19 GROWWWWWLLZLZLZZ!!!!! HAHA

absolutely proper.


RATING - FIRST DATE (if she likes cocained kisses)




UNDER A TABLE

TITLE TRACK!!

its the big one, here we go.

clustered chords act like colonel mustard in the library acting scary with a cluster of berries


the sax lingers..

this reminds me of a perverted mansion. like that scene in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST where all the tea cups spin and candles dance like men

its just like that except everything is deathly ill and wants you to pay some attention to it.

the piano has been drinking, type idea.

1:26 these CHORDS!! you should relish! especially if this style of music is new, RELISH in those RARE sounds , you dont usually get to treat your ears to such exotic delacacies...



3:21 the sax will simply have its way with you today as the drums beat on . a perverse ritual. there was mercury in his beverage and he was never quite the same after that

3:45 the bass instrument wonders what happened to everyone? its kind of like an orphaned baby as it has internal confusions.

wow.

just very very pretty much. like gold and silver, rare gems.

******************
*****************

what a fantastic chance meeting we had with A GIRAFFE UNDER A TABLE

these guys are masters of their craft i would not hesitate. they have done the work and we all get to benefit from what they found in their internal music caverns.



SEE YOU WEDNESDAY

drifting along with POOR MAN'S FANTASY (rare music)

WHO: POOR MAN'S FANTASY
LISTEN ALONG: http://poormansfantasy.bandcamp.com/

today im excited. this appears to be a thoughtful and RARE album, people told me to listen, so here i am , i listened and im here with you now. im going to be your host as we invite POOR MAN'S FANTASY to give us a lexture in aural things.

i update every TUESDAY and SUNDAY join me back then and we can keep learning about new music.


DISCLAIMER : MUSICJUSTUS STRIVES TO OPEN OUR MINDS AND HEARTS WITH NEW AND RARE MUSIC, PLEASE APPRECIATE THIS OPPORTUNITY HE HAS GIVEN US!!









SHORELINE

IM EATIN MY PIZZA STARTING WITH THE CRUST MOM! last track first lets see what the closing statement says about the piece

//i click play

the GENTLEST of guitar arpeggios tickles across itself, rocks hopping on a pound and our vocalist join in.

a very nice texture of GUITAR AND VOICE


FUN FACT: the guitar was actually the first instrument ever made (????)

we navigate many shifting harmonies we are the boat on an ocean with the waves of today gently guiding us

the melody is serpentine weaving through...

this is like a lost radiohead track?!?! LISTENERS! TAKE NOTE OF PRODUCTION - one might choose just to have a solo guitar in support, but add in some synth lots of echoing vocals and some backwards talking and that RADIOHEAD GUY would try and steal this for his BAND hahaha

AHH! the sounds of water... shoreline... home... we are home now...

RATING - NOT FOR FIRST DATES









DRIFTER

MORE MORE guitar. the picker has skills and the guitar goes "DEEDLE DO!!!" at key moments. this is hypnotic. PARSELYYY SSAAAGEEE ROSEMARRY AND THYYMEE

oh a moist orator arrives, telling me where to go. THE SPACE he uses for his..

:56 WOW THE WHOLE PLEASANT JUNGLE JUST CHIMED IN!!!

REALLY enjoying this texture its very smooth but busy, reminds me of small insects buzzing about , not dangerous, but makes one curious

again this PRODUCTION.....

POLARIS PRIZE? why not.

wow does anyone else feel like they are on a long drive to a new place or ... ? you can sit in the passenger seat, POOR MAN'S FANTASY will do all the driving and point out interesting things..

2:20 a beautiful sound melodizes... ahh.... im sad... i see that the song is over soon? to be honest i wanted to drift for MUCH LONGER...

musicians need not be afraid of 10 minute songs.. ahh, drifter, SO NICE!








WOLF FEEDS

WOW the timbral changes are nice, we go from very smooth of the last track to a jagged CLIP CLOP of a horses hooves.

minor chords are heard

feelings of  ... hmm.. i feel introspective..

oh WOW the two chords we bounce between are just lovely the stringed instrument, perhaps a 12 stringed guitar, is doing an EXCELLENT job of singing its praises while the singer ....


1:30 and we hear VERY nice sounds, im VERY taken aback by these rich textures... so much is going on but never does a sound take away from another

these sounds function a lot like a rainbow.. yes we can appreciate each element but we are in awe that we get to see them all together as the most beautiful message from the world.



RATING - IF THE FIRST DATE WENT POORLY !!!









RILEY PARK

one more!

wow the songs just blend together its VERY difficult to tell them to stop,, this is music at a pure form JOURNEY ORIENTED not just catchy chorus material its VERY important to just open your ears and resist re-listening to a favorite song and just HEAR what happens next.

oh wow this percussion section, HOW can you say no? haha we couldnt!

1:45 and the melody is joined by some interesting synth sounds .. the vocals are washing more into the  texture

2:03

WOW GOOSEBUMPS! this is what i live for this is beautiful this is beautiful im done talking just listen


2:55 and an ascent to the depths of ... somewhere, some where RARE and HONEST

and the single strings pluck out acapella almost..

JOINED! bass... basss.

RATING-  these textures  ladies and gentleman, are the warmest blanket you have ever had.

T H O M A S ????????

WHO: T H O M A S
LISTEN ALONG: http://www.myspace.com/isthisthomas


not too long T H O M AS released their most recent ideas on an album, GET IT HERE:


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GH09TU/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1318007897&sr=301-1


i found their older work is a nice place to warm up...
swing batter batter here we go






ITS NOT SO GRAVE

some very subtle wooo in the left, gentle..

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHORDS KISS MY EAR GENTLY BRUSHED BY THE THUMB OF SOMEONE WHO JUST WANTS TO REACH OUT.

is there lyrics
is there love
is there longing

what is this about. he's REACHING up into that PEACH BASKET OF NOTES and pulling out the ripest, most tender peaches for us to taste. this is very VULNERABLE and VERY HONEST

ok

1:45 and some neighbours join in, we he MR PERCUSSIO and the yung CINDY SYNTHWELL. the texture thickens but the message remains. SO FAR SO GOOD. musicians are obsessed with repeating things so when i hear something that just CRUISES STRAIGTH FORM EARTH TO THE MOON i am tickled. a journey...

3:07

we have some great development, i didnt realize i had wings before this very moment! GOOSE BUMPBS at 2:26 with those back up vocals.

and a no idea happens, we have some LOVELY HARMONIC MOVEMENT!! i never know where we are going to land this is INCREDIBLY THOUGHTFUL And HEARTFELT.

that this THOMAS is doing to us, we like this idea. we accept our place with this idea. do you? i encourage your open ears to open up your mind to these great sounds.


RATING - PUMPKIN PIE FOR DESERT!!











SAVE ME

some fuzzy percussive elements and we are met with that same tender whisper tone of a voice. it glosses through the pussy willows and swims atop swampy lakes. TENDER COTTAGE.

:35 and some new harmonies whisk us along with this breathe of air. WOW THE.... WOW! that a sandwich of people female harmony vocals just stopped by and CHANGED THE SONG COMPLETELY!

1:35 and we drift back and forth between urgency and understanding... WHERE... when we listen to music this vulnerable WE OURSELVES HAVE TO GIVE UP and just let it take us, try VERY HARD to not listen for whats about to happen, only what is currently happening. WOW!

2:48 and that lady friend of ours says HERE I AM, her voice, a new instrument, offers up a new timbral atmosphere ....

and just as this breeze washed in, OUT IT GOES! goodbye swamp cottage.

"yuh,,, WEPOOHH!" haha good one THOMAS.


RATING - BUY NOW!









FAR FROM OVER (SPENCER MIX)
WOW this is a totally different sound I LUV SUPRIRSES

(EDITORS NOTE: haha the typo on that word was too fun to not share it)


some perverse funk riffs bounce around and a vocal melody chases it . snake eats a tail. tiger tail. bigger than a whale......


1:04 and its like sitting on the EDGE OF A HELICOPTER BLADE! WEEEEEEEE are whirling into another atmosphere ROGER THAT!!

1:30 RIFF IT FOOLS!! YEAAA!! What a unique VOICE and i dont just mean HUMAN VOICE but the way this music is being expressed is not something i am used to hearing, VERY FRESH VERY LIVE SHUCK AND JIVE. EXCEPTIONAL WORK TEAM.

RATING - YOURE PROMOTED!!

a RARE find, probably from the mid century, FRASER GIELEN welcome!!!

WHO: FRASER GIELEN
HOW: The Age of INFORM-ATION
LISTEN AND ENJOY :

http://frasergielen.bandcamp.com/



is it metal, is it synth pop hip hop garage band?

its FRASER GIELEN , a tender lad. he has promised the world more music is on its way so we are going to start with his little sampling of that and then move onto SUMMER SONGS which i can only imagine are .... SUMMER SONGS!!





DEEP END


a tender guitar, mumbles away sincerely about something it wants you to know about..
..a gentle voice
...friendship?
its a bit of a sing along!!

Stayin in the DEEP END!!

OH WOW

little hairs on my arms stand up as that small boys choir joined us in the deep end.

something cacophonic in the background joins them..

this is a CAMP FIRE where your feet are just close enough , to keep them warm as the laughter continues, then later, you realize your SHOES ARE MELTED, haha.

a mumbly and tender poet tells us his feelings

stayin in the deep end.

Stuff like this really gets my bucket in a tucket. so few words, very minimal texture... instead of chasing you with NOVEL IDEAS it presents just an HONEST AND RARE view point, take it or leave it says MAESTRO FRASER GIELEN , take it or leave it, i'll be in the ..

deep end.

RATING - melted shoes are better for sliding around anyway. =>>>>>>>>>>>









SUMERTIME IN MY MIND


you know how i feel about first songs on an album, theres something just so chronologically satisfying about just saying YES to NUMBER 1


again, we are hearing this nice warm bedroom sounding guitar. and a bit of back up from some very NATURAL PRO-CUSSION. what nice texture, like a REALLY CLEAR WINDOW this production lets us hear whats going on, no lies no lies


the poet talks of feelings..

"whats a guy to do, with his luck"

well i consider my luck pretty good for getting to listen to this MUSIC!!! with some FRIENDS through the internet.

crazy, we are living in the age of the JETSONS but still, this naturalistic music is always finding its way to me and out of the hearts of people musicians and poets alike.

......SPACE

many musicians talk about SPACE and using it. i find this lyrical delivery to be FANTASTIC . more words doesnt necessarily mean more to say... ahh good music, harmonies kick for a little at around 3:16 and its just the SWEETEST KISS

RATING - sadness or happiness i dont know , but this music makes me FEEL





SUMMER FINALE


SHES A FOOT TAPPER BOYS!!!

ahhh we are blowin in the wind with this one boys!!

the bass goes for a bit of a walk and a harmonica gentle licks our lobes!! hahahahaa boys!

to me this is REAL folk music!!! I hear lots of people going out of their way to get some sort of vintage sound with lots of old machines and improved recording techniques, but the FOLKS are at the heart of FOLK , its about just making music! this is a genuine spirit recorded in our modern version of the wax cylinder


MUSICJUSTUS FACT - ''MP3'' actually stands for "Modernized Paraffin 3000"


i think what we learn by enjoying this music is to just be ourselves. you dont need a fancy book or hat all the time. life is NOT (always) a fancy hat party, but when it is, come to my spot because i have many fancy hats to give you. boat fulls.

RATING - this is such a NICE TRACK it needs a TRAIN on it!

1.DRUGSTORE


i always feel the first song is such a pivotal factor in engaging the listener, DUH, so lets see what MJATW served up as a handshake!!

ok, MUTTERING bumbling and im basically imagine a FOREIGN PLACE, FOREIGN TO EVERYONE, ALL OF EARTHS PEOPLE. ITS A NEW PLACE COMPLETELY.

oh, ... oh!!

very nice rattattat is joined up like a SPAGHETTI AND A MEATBALL by voice and guitar. i admit, i have a soft spot for lo fi.

ok 1:22 and ANOTHER guitar joins in and i feel DELIGHTFUL. this is a very CELTIC sort of feel, but the LYRICAL CONTENT IS THE PICKLE IN THE PIE!!!

by that... I mean, the PIE is good, but anyone can havea pie. this DRUGSTORE song is a pickle pie, its a RARE and HONEST FLAVOUR!!

1:35 the CHOIR! persumably the WONDERFULS, join in a velvety harmony. lets take a minute to think about harmony.

a melody is alone, it is just a meandering series of notes... a harmony.. thats a melody with a whole bunch of GREAT FRIENDS looking to bring out the BEST QUALITIES of that MELODY! not trying to ALTER it or make it be something else, but just HIGHLIGHTING the TRUTH AND HONESTY of the original melody.

do you see?

we should aim to be more harmonious with the melody of our everyday friends.... hmmm...

this is a VERY nice song. listen to it again ok? WOW what a way to start an album

RATING - TICKLED BY THE PICKLE IN MY PIE!!! =>>>>>>>>>









2.JAIL

this is.... SERIOUSLY ... FINALLY! I FEEL UNDERSTOOD!! these lyrics.. this song is an EPIC and should be reserved only for the most important events in a nations history.


ok lemme back up


we start. a weak and frail drum pattern , drums and patterns on while a MULTI TEMPO EXPERIENCE happens when the guitar sort of joins in.

this song just really has my digits so instead of ***DETRACTING FROM IT*** im going to ***LET IT SPEAK FOR ITSELF*** and try and transcribe the lyrics so we can just enjoy this together. hold my hand , lets go.


"you got to get that bull out of jail
jails no place for a bull!

yes it it might cost you 400 dollars,
but you got to get him out whatever the cost because

REFRAIN

Jail------- is no place for a bull
yes i know life as a farmer?? is hard to get through
but you cant let that bull take the fall for you
jail------------!!!


you gotta get that bull out of jail
jails no place for a bull

yes i know that he was a jerk
but thats ok hes a bull they do not have conscience

REFRAIN
"

AMAZING vocal harmonied work goes on and two spoons are hit to signify the ending.



RATING - this should be taught to small children. i much prefer it to any national anythem. sing it in the streets, find the hidding meaning or just skim the surface. perfect

(for those fans of this song, there is a reprise of this idea later in the album)






3. THE ESPRESSO IS NOT SUBTLE


a low rumble in the guitar.... like a small earthquake, supports BEAUTIFUL harmonied vocals again, like a beautiful sky soaring over a broken wasteland... beauty in the hideous...

as the guitars layer and the alien sounds go on....

its like...

god...

THUS SPOKE MARY JANE AND THE WONDERFULS

through the twisting swirling paths... a pure message is being revealed to us but we have to listen NOT WITH OUR OPEN EARS, BUT WITH OUR OPEN MINDS

ALWAYS IN LIFE

****OPEN MINDS****


1:30 the previously agreed upon laser sound lazes on.

we listen on, as the rumbling is met with smacks and pinks plucks out of some sort of future guitar. FUTURE-TAR?

IS THIS A NEW AND HONEST MUSIC?


i find this VERY engaging, how could one listen to this and not think "ahhhhhhh finally"

2:40
the FUTURE-TAR plicks out more naturalistic sorts of melodies, folk ish, native to our land, but joined by the pitter patter of an aliens peoples' feet. thousands, thousands of TINY LITTLE FEET GOING ON ABOUT THERE COFFEE FILLED DAYS. DAZE?

THE LASER LAZES, THE DAYS DAZE

THE SONG IS GOOD.

RATING - THE SONG IS GOOD.
