This new ambient remix of “slowly by your passing” by BRAIN GRIMMER is part of a living-document remix compilation on Obsolete Media Objects, titled “Visions & Revisions“. The original track was released on CJ Boyd’s album Precariat (available on Joyful Noise Recordings). Thanks to special guest, Geoff Brady on drums.
This 12-minute piece is a sonic meditation in remembrance of the many unarmed people of color who have suffered police brutality. It is a painful prayer dedicated to the families and communities who have lost their loved ones to such violence. For those in the Madison, WI area who are willing to pay for this remix, I urge you to instead, donate your money to Young Gifted & Black Coalition’s go-fund-me campaign.
“The Young Gifted and Black coalition stands against the many forms of state violence, police killings, mass incarceration, poverty, and more. We stand for justice of all black lives lost to the hands of the state. We stand for community and self-determination. We will not stop until we are free.”
A personal treat: one of my favorite Madison bands, CONTROL, set at one of my favorite Madison venues, Mickey’s Tavern. It is here that we convene this Friday night, Jan the 23rd, to melt-face. Two power trios, one of the rock &/or roll variety & one of the free-jazz persuasion. Come on down, bang your head, rock with us.
~ via High Noon Saloon: “”EXILE ON WILLY STREET” brings together some of Madison’s finest to celebrate The Rolling Stones classic “Exile on Main Street” double album.
