Album of the Week – 14/08/20

This week, there’s a new album by Bruce! Yes, of course, I’m talking about Bruce Hornsby, who did you think I was talking about? Is there even another Bruce?

It’s another slow week (maybe it’s August?) but there are still a few things worth checking out including the return of Tanya Donelly (along with the Parkington Sisters) who is “reimagining of her pop favourites”. There is also a new album of cover versions from Whitney. Just skip over ‘Take me Home, Country Roads’, which doesn’t really happen! It’s a bit of a mixed bag but we like what they do.

In the end, we went for something a bit funky from Fantastic Negrito.

Album of the Week – Fantastic Negrito – Have You Lost Your Mind Yet?

Negrito says: “When I was writing ‘How Long?,’ I was actually talking to the shooter –a very familiar subject in American society. We all know who the shooter is. He’s isolated, scared, maybe he feels betrayed, and to hide his fear, he consumes images and media that make him feel powerful. “
“If I had the chance, I would tell the shooter he’s not in it alone. I would tell him I know despair. I would confess to him all of the horrible things I have done in my life. All of the darkness, the foster homes, the sexual predators, my past criminal activity. I’ve hurt a lot of people. I ran away from home when I was 12 years old. I saw my 14-year-old brother with his head blown open, and I helped my mother clean the blood off the floor. I watched my 16-year-old cousin get buried in a coffin. My best friend was murdered in a barbershop here in the liberal, peace-loving Bay Area. I survived a three-week coma. I lost my playing hand, and I felt like everything was over. But it wasn’t.”Hopefully being able to survive those things and share them with people in despair can help ease all the pain.”
