JB Shares A Government Spying Technique

Lazy notes of my dreams:

In this dream, I drove to pick up a young woman who had a disability (handicap) of some kind, and to get some food delivery for me and / or someone.

At some point, my female coworker JB & another woman talked with us, JB did most of the talking, and JB was telling us about a certain technique that the government used to use to spy on certain people.

Hiatus Kaiyote: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

What is it?

The YouTube video Hiatus Kaiyote: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert by the YouTube channel NPR Music, and here is the description for this video:

Abby O’Neill | August 4, 2021
Melbourne alt-soul collective Hiatus Kaiyote tricked out its avant-garde recording studio, The Villa, and lathered it with props: a miniature desk, alien costumes, and loads of furry friends. Frontwoman Nai Palm shared with me the impetus behind the design. “I’m a treasure hunter at heart,” she said, “and the beautiful thing about dressing a set with sentimental artifacts from my house is that I feel super comfy to perform.” Every intricate detail of this Tiny Desk (home) concert evokes feelings of coziness, psychedelia and joyful performance art.

Launching into this brilliant performance with “Sip Into Something Soft,” Hiatus takes us on a sweet and sultry journey through a host of selections from their new album, Mood Valiant. On “Rose Water,” the tightness of the band (comprised of Paul Bender, Simon Mavin and Perrin Moss, and joined by their longtime backing vocalists) is on full display.

Hiatus Kaiyote came onto the scene with their debut album, Tawk Tomahawk, back in 2012 and created a groundswell of buzz among global music heads. Since then, they’ve gone on to win varying international awards and were the first Australian group to get nominated in the R&B category at the Grammys for best R&B performance in 2013. This uber-fun and exhilarating set will appease diehards and new fans alike.
