Kate Tempest au Paléo. A écouter : Emilie Simon, privée d'ordinateurs - En bref. La petite reine de l'électro pop, depuis longtemps passée maître dans le maniement des sons synthétiques et des ordinateurs, vient de donner un concert semi acoustique dans un club de Wuhan, en Chine.

A écouter : Emilie Simon, privée d'ordinateurs - En bref

Volonté de se métamorphoser ? Pas vraiment. C'est parce que son régisseur n'a pas pu arriver à temps – avion dérouté pour cause de météo capricieuse – que la chanteuse et ses musiciens se sont retrouvés privés d'ordinateurs. Obligés de se réinventer. En intégrant notamment dans leur set une flûte chinoise traditionnelle, qu'Emilie Simon a appris à dompter au pied levé... Outre sa rareté qui ravira les fans, il apporte une démonstration artistique cinglante : le répertoire d'Emilie Simon, à la production d'ordinaire si soignée, tient parfaitement la route dans le dépouillement quasi complet.

There’s a strong, vibrant formal tradition in hip hop: the story rhyme.

Everybody Down / Kate Tempest / Releases / Ninja Tune

Rather than the bragging and boasting of many raps, in a story rhyme the MC presents a narrative – a street update of Ovid or Homer if you want to get hifalutin about it. Traced back by some to “The Message” by Melle Mel, few would dispute that it reached some sort of a peak with Slick Rick’s first album, and was carried forward by the likes of Biggie and Eminem. It also had a profound influence on rap in the UK, with artists like Roots Manuva using the form to represent themselves and their city in a myriad of new ways. Kate Tempest is best known as a poet, perhaps a performance poet or a spoken word artist. She has a novel coming out next year with Bloomsbury. Kate Tempest understands the story rhyme, loves it. Dan Carey aka Mr Dan is one of the UK’s best known and most highly-rated producers. Parov Stelar - Heavens Radio (feat. Y'Akoto) Kathrin deBoer - As i sit out this January in Southern hemisphere...

Bjork trusts pirates to take 'Biophilia' cross-platform

The singer wants software pirates to make it more widely available. She told Drowned in Sound that the apps had been specifically designed so that they could be easily ported to other platforms -- like Symbian, BlackBerry and Android. "We really made sure when we wrote all the programs that they will transfer to other systems. " DiS asked whether opting for an iOS-only development policy conflicted with her and the project's proclaimed "punk values", and she replied: "Yeah, for sure, there's definitely another polarity there, a conflict. The only solution for me was to somehow be some sort of a 'Kofi Annan' and try and make these two worlds speak to each other.

Darwin - A Natural Selection for Hip Hop: An Interview with Baba Brinkman on Spoonfed

Rupert Uzzell chats to Baba Brinkman. Darwin and his theories of evolution may not seem the most likely of subjects to be covered by hip hop music, but then again, Baba Brinkman isn't exactly the most likely of hip hop stars. A former professional tree planter in Canada, who planted exactly 1, 046,105 trees, (an official figure from the company's business records) he is also a scholar with a Masters in Medieval and Renaissance English Literature. So it is perhaps unsurprising that Brinkman's rap music should deal with such intellectually challenging material as evolution and natural selection, although when I ask him how his hit 2009 show The Rap Guide to Evolution came about, he responds, “Well it certainly wasn't my idea.”
