Girl Ultra: Tiny Desk Concert

Girl Ultra: Tiny Desk Concert

What Is It?

The YouTube video Girl Ultra: Tiny Desk Concert by the YouTube channel NPR Music.

Here is the description for this video:

From Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, Tiny Desk is celebrating Latinx Heritage Month with an “El Tiny” takeover, featuring Jessie Reyez, Susana Baca and more musicians from all corners of Latinidad.

Stefanie Fernández | Sept. 21, 2022
Girl Ultra’s music is never one thing for long.

After coming up in Mexico City’s alt R&B scene, Mariana de Miguel built on that premise with experiments in house, bolero, pop and punk, fused with her own distinct glint.

Her El Tiny performance is an effortless flash of all she is capable of and of the commanding performance she’s finessed over her career.

Even the onomatopoeic chorus of house track “BOMBAY” translates seamlessly to the desk.

Slowed and acoustic as it is, the El Tiny version of “Punk” captures the frenetic rush of the original, itself an alt transfiguration of Gwen Stefani’s “Bubble Pop Electric” that interpolates its pop chorus and tailors it to the allure of going out in the south side of Mariana de Miguel’s hometown of Mexico City.

“Dime tú que voy a hacer con este feeling,” (“You tell me what I’m going to do with this feeling”) she asks, ostensibly of the person she’s singing about.

But it’s also a question that speaks to the mutability of her performance: effusive and commanding, but never lacking a controlled restraint as it evolves.

As she sings in “DameLove,” “feelings always come and go.”

She begins her El Tiny performance of that song by playing a few moments of the recorded version.

Cuco’s voice and hers float in from the drum machine, warped, as she flutters her fingers in front of her face, cultivating mystery against the familiarity of the setting for a solo rendition of the song that feels even more intimate.

She describes the final song of her set, “Ella Tú y Yo” from 2019’s Nuevos Aires, as “about finding a third one in a relationship – which is pretty common these days.”.

Here, she reworks the R&B ballad into a simmering indie rock churn, its titular phrase whispered with a soft wince.

Just one album and an EP into her career, Girl Ultra has already commanded change — as necessary and sometimes difficult as it can be — as a driver of expression.

Here, it’s thrilling.

Alanis Morissette – Ironic

Alanis Morissette – Ironic (Official 4K Music Video)

What Is It?

The song Ironic by Alanis Morissette from her 1995 music album Jagged Little Pill.

Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

“Ironic” is a song by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette.

It was released in February 1996 as the third single from her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995).

It was written by Morissette and Glen Ballard, and was produced by him.

“Ironic” is a song written in the key of B major, and includes a moderate tempo of eighty-five beats per minute.

The lyrics present several situations that are described as “ironic”; this has led to debate whether any of these actually match the accepted meaning of irony.[1]

For six weeks, the track topped the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart.

It also reached the top five in Australia, New Zealand, and Norway.

In the United States, the song reached number four on April 13, 1996, and since then it has been her highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Ironic” was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The song won the Juno Award for Single of the Year, and received two Grammy Award nominations in 1997, for Record of the Year and Best Short Form Music Video.

French director Stéphane Sednaoui filmed the music video.

In it, Morissette drives through a winter landscape, and she plays multiple roles as her passengers.

MTV nominated the music video for six MTV Video Music Awards in 1996, winning three of them.

The music video was listed on VH1’s “Greatest Music Videos” list and was parodied by DBA Flip, Allison Rheaume, Rusty and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

“Ironic” was written by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard, and produced by the latter for her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995).[3]

In an interview with Christopher Walsh of Billboard, Ballard explained how he and Morissette met, and how “Ironic” was written.

He commented: “I’m telling you, within 15 minutes we were at it— just writing.

‘Ironic’ was the third song we wrote.

Oh God, we were just having fun.

I thought, ‘I don’t know what this is—what genre it is—who knows?

It’s just good’”.[4]

According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com, it is a song set in the time signature of common time, composed in a moderate tempo of eighty-two beats per minute.[5]

It is set in the key of B major with Morissette’s vocal range from the tone of E5 to B♭5, and “Ironic” chord progression starts with the sequence of Emaj7–F♯6–Emaj7–F♯6, before changing to F♯–Badd9–F♯–G♯m7 in the chorus.[5]

Juilliard Jazz Ensemble: Tiny Desk Concert

Juilliard Jazz Ensemble: Tiny Desk Concert

What Is It?

The YouTube video Juilliard Jazz Ensemble: Tiny Desk Concert by the YouTube channel NPR Music.

Here is the description for this video:

Nikki Birch | Sept. 2, 2022
Jazz may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of The Juilliard School, but perhaps this series of Tiny Desks will change that.

Tiny Desk and Jazz Night in America celebrate the 20th anniversary of Juilliard Jazz with three Tiny Desk concerts featuring performances by current students and alumni of the prestigious institution.

When the starry-eyed students of the Juilliard Jazz Ensemble first saw the Tiny Desk, they stopped short, exuding awe and wonderment.

After all, several of their favorite artists had performed in this very space — and now here they were, ready to prove themselves and carry on the legacy of both the Tiny Desk and jazz.

The Juilliard Jazz Ensemble performed at the Tiny Desk in celebration of the jazz studies program’s 20th anniversary.

Made up of current students, the ensemble embodies the spirit of community and collaboration that is an essential part of the students’ learning experience.

The ensemble opens with “June” a hypnotic composition by alto saxophonist Coby Petricone-Berg.

We understand immediately, despite the members’ relative youth, this ensemble is not to be trifled with.

A shout-out to the rhythm section is absolutely necessary, as drummer John Sturino, bassist Nico Martinez and pianist Esteban Castro lay back in the cut while ensuring the path ahead for the horns, with Jasim Perales giving us soulful trombone, is smooth like whipped shea butter.

This is grade-A musicianship — everyone listening and unselfishly supporting each other.

For the final selection, Ekep Nkwelle presents her arrangement of Geri Allen’s “Timeless Portraits and Dreams.”.

Her voice soars in this contemplative ballad, a perfect closer that allows each member of the ensemble to shine as they share the hope that, “In tomorrow’s world, let joy and love run free / Let’s hold on to our dreams.”.

KRS-One – Sound Of Da Police

KRS-One – Sound of da Police (Official Video)

What Is It?

The song Sound Of Da Police by the American Hip Hop musician KRS-One from his 1993 music album Return Of The Boom Bap.

KRS ONE – Sound of Da Police

This is how Wikipedia describes this song:

The song criticizes police brutality and systemic racism.[3][4]

It begins with KRS-One whooping twice to evoke a police siren (the “sound of the police”); this recurs several times throughout the song.

The heavy bass sample loop, and part of a guitar solo were taken from Grand Funk Railroad‘s cover of “Inside-Looking Out”, the final track of their LP Grand Funk.[5]

Part of the drum track is taken from “Sing a Simple Song” by Sly and the Family Stone.[5]

The music video was directed by Michael Lucero.

Here are the descriptions for the videos above:

Chorus:
Woop-woop!
That’s the sound of da police!
Woop-woop!
That’s the sound of the beast!

Stand clear! Don man a-talk
You can’t stand where I stand, you can’t walk where I walk
Watch out! We run New York
Police man come, we bust him out the park
I know this for a fact, you don’t like how I act
You claim I’m sellin’ crack
But you be doin’ that
I’d rather say “see ya”
Cause I would never be ya
Be an officer? You wicked overseer!
Ya hotshot, wanna get props and be a savior
First show a little respect, change your behavior
Change your attitude, change your plan
There could never really be justice on stolen land
Are you really for peace and equality?
Or when my car is hooked up, you know you wanna follow me
Your laws are minimal
Cause you won’t even think about lookin’ at the real criminal
This has got to cease
Cause we be getting hyped to the sound of da police!

Chorus

Now here’s a little truth
Open up your eye
While you’re checking out the boom-bap, check the exercise
Take the word “overseer,” like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew, for example
Overseer, overseer, overseer, overseer
Officer, officer, officer, officer
Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity? Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you’re doing
The officer will pull you over just when he’s pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back, they put a hole in your chest!
They both ride horses
After 400 years, I’ve got no choices
The police, they have a little gun
So when I’m on the streets, I walk around with a bigger one
(Woop-woop!) I hear it all day
Just so they can run the light and be upon their way

Chorus

Check out the message in a rough stylee
The real criminals are the C-O-P
You check for undercover and the one PD
But just a mere Black man, them want check me
Them check out me car for it shine like the sun
But them jealous or them vexed cause them can’t afford one
Black people still slaves up til today
But the Black police officer nah see it that way
Him want a salary
Him want it
So he put on a badge and kill people for it
My grandfather had to deal with the cops
My great-grandfather dealt with the cops
My GREAT grandfather had to deal with the cops
And then my great, great, great, great… when it’s gonna stop?
