The Groove / Spids Nøgenhat
« Last post by Satori on Yesterday at 07:20:22 AM »
Hello all,


Long time no see! I hope you are all doing fine :)


The other day I was reminded of a current psychedelic rockband from Denmark: Spids Nøgenhat (= Liberty Cap). They have made some quite good music that succesfully captures some of the 60s psychedelia, without being lame, which much "retro" style music is.
The founder used to be in the band "Baby Woodrose", and their debut album is called "A strange cup of tea". So you can see they are quite fond of naturally occuring psychedelics.


I hereby give you one of my favourites (the one i refound the other day, while chilling, and being sent beyond the gateways of inner space while trying to focus on Second Language Acquisition theories):
Spids Nøgenhet : Mere lys (= more light), from the album "Kommer med fred" (2013 = comes with peace)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iEx495sIE0

And here is the English translation of the lyrics (Danish below). Enjoy my friends!


Spids Nøgenhat comes with peace...
 

Have you...
tried taking your eyes off?
Laid down...
all the way inside your own mind?
And have you...
tried painting your days blue?
Breathed...
like it was just for the very first time.
More light... and more love.
More light... and more freedom.


 

Have you...
danced outside in the dark on a twine?
And crossed...
an invisible border/gateway/line (?) in the middle of reality.
And have you...
seen what you can do, if only you dare?
And tried...
to suck all of the universe into you.
More light... and more love.
And more light... and more freedom.
And more freedom... and more echo.


 

And have you...
tried taking your eyes off?
Laid down...
all the way inside your own mind?
And have you...
tried taking your eyes off?
And travelled...
2,000 kilometers in a two-room apartment?
More light... and more love.
More light... and more freedom.
And more freedom... more now.
More now, more now...


------


Spids Nøgenhat kommer med fred...
 

Har du...
prøvet at tage dine øjne af?
Lagt dig ned...
helt inde i dit eget sind?
Og har du...
prøvet at male dine dage blå?
Trukket vejret...
som om det bare var for allerførste gang.
Mere lys... og mere kærlighed.
Mere lys... og mere frihed.
 

Har du...
danset ude i mørket på en snor?
Og overskredet...
en usynlig grænse midt i virkeligheden.
Og har du...
set, hvad du kan gøre, hvis du bare tør?
Og prøvet...
at suge hele universet ind i dig.
Mere lys... og mere kærlighed.
Og mere lys... og mere frihed.
Og mere frihed... og mere ekko.
 

Og har du...
prøvet at tage dine øjne af?
Lagt dig ned...
helt inde i dit eget sind?
Og har du...
prøvet at tage dine øjne af?
Og rejst...
2.000 kilometer i en toværelseslejlighed?
Mere lys... og mere kærlighed.
Mere lys... og mere frihed.
Og mere frihed... mere nu.
Mere nu, mere nu...

On this week's show:
 
* Featured New Rock Album: The Wood Brothers, *One Drop of Truth* (2018) . . . Been several years since this Nashville alt-folk rock's last release, & the new one is a winner . . . good players, singers, they write songs that are both mellow & intense, that feel to range deep down whatever their mild-seeming landscapes . . . & the further along into this LP you travel, the headier the brews you try . . .

* Featured Classic Rock Album Redux: The Traveling Wilburys, *Vol. 1* (1988) . . . Hugh Jampton writes: "The original Wilburys were a stationary people who, realizing that their civilization could not stand still forever, began to go for short walks—not the “traveling,” as we now know it, but certainly as far as the corner and back. They must have taken to motion, in much the same way as penguins were at that time taking to ledges, for the next we hear of them they were going out for the day (often taking lunch or a picnic). Later, we don’t as yet know how much later, some intrepid Wilburys began to go away for the weekend, leaving late Friday and coming back Sunday. It was they who evolved simple rhythmic forms to describe their adventures" . . . This is their first, amazingly wonderful, LP record . . .

* Storybook Time*: Continuing Chapter 15 of *The Unconsoled* by Kasuo Ishiguro . . .

* Readings from *Many Musics*, *Bags End News*, & *Labyrinthine* . . .  & this week's featured artist is Cage the Elephant, & some nice-nice tracks from their 2017 live album, *Unpeeled* . . . deep in the winter to burrow deeper into the warm, shadowy places rather than to freeze with what's exposed . . .

JRL, you are too funny. With that being said, I really think music adds a whole other dimension to the enjoyment of nature crying.
