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.

Amarna Miller Se Sincera Sobre El Amor Y Explica Cómo Superar Los Celos Para Ser Más Felices

What Is It?

The Odysee video Amarna Miller Se Sincera Sobre El Amor Y Explica Cómo Superar Los Celos Para Ser Más Felices (Amarna Miller Gets Candid About Love And Explains How To Overcome Jealousy To Be Happier) by the Odysee channel Sputnik Mundo.

Here is the description for this video:

“Vírgenes, esposas, amantes y putas”, un libro que acaba de publicar la activista por los derechos de la mujer @Amarna Miller, licenciada en Bellas Artes. Un texto lleno de experiencias autobiográficas y en el que la ‘influencer’ explica “el rompecabezas que significa ser mujer en la sociedad actual” y donde también habla sobre uno de los momentos más duros de su vida: la relación de maltrato que sufrió en carne propia durante años y en silencio.

Miller empezó con su canal de YouTube en 2009, cuando todavía no existía la sobreoferta de contenido actual. Su carácter fuerte, enérgico y desenfadado, así como el contenido sin tabúes de sus vídeos sobre temas sensibles como el sexo o la prostitución, la convirtieron en seguida en uno de los referentes más importantes en las redes sociales e internet, y a día de hoy acumula cientos de miles de seguidores.

En esta conversación con Esther Yañez en la nueva edición de “Sin Tapujos”, Miller trata otros temas candentes como el tipo de relaciones amorosas que existen, cómo combatir los celos para tener relaciones más maduras y saludable.

¿De qué hablamos hoy?

“Virgins, wives, lovers and whores”, a book just published by the women’s rights activist
@Amarna
Miller, Bachelor of Fine Arts. A text full of autobiographical experiences and in which the ‘influencer’ explains “the puzzle that being a woman means in today’s society” and where she also talks about one of the hardest moments of her life: the abusive relationship she suffered in the flesh own for years and in silence.

Miller started her YouTube channel in 2009, when the current oversupply of content did not yet exist. Her strong, energetic and carefree character, as well as the content without taboos in her videos on sensitive topics such as sex or prostitution, immediately made her one of the most important references on social networks and the Internet, and today she accumulates hundreds of thousands of followers.

In this conversation with Esther Yañez in the new edition of “Sin Tapujos”, Miller deals with other hot topics such as the type of love relationships that exist, how to combat jealousy to have more mature and healthy relationships.

Dreams

A Console Command | No Pants & A Fake Video & Standing Up To Soldiers

Dream 1

My memory of this dream is unclear now, I know that part of it involved a console command that you could enter into a terminal on a computer that listed all your passwords.

Someone kept using this console command in their quest to try all the foods that they could, and maybe for fights.

Tiny Desk Meets SXSW: KAINA

Tiny Desk Meets SXSW: KAINA

What Is It?

The YouTube video Tiny Desk Meets SXSW: KAINA by the YouTube channel NPR Music.

Here is the description for this video:

Every year, NPR Music participates in the SXSW music festival, whether it’s curating a stage or simply attending hundreds of shows at the annual event in Austin, Texas. In 2020, the festival was canceled due to the pandemic, but it returned last March as an online festival. We programmed a virtual “stage” of Tiny Desk (home) concerts in 2021 in a series called Tiny Desk Meets SXSW. This year we return again, virtually, with another round of Tiny Desk Meets SXSW: four videos filmed in various locations, all of them full of surprises.

Anamaria Sayre | March 22, 2022
Setting the scene with a winding tour of the jam-packed gathering of musicians in a mystical recreation of her childhood casita, Chicago-based singer KAINA offers her Tiny Desk (home) concert viewer a temporally unhinged invitation to come over to her house after school.

It doesn’t take much to imagine what it was like in the vocalist’s childhood home: salsa bouncing off the walls, arepas flowing from the kitchen, no one allowed to go home unfed (thanks in part to her Venezuelan and Guatemalan parents). KAINA is channeling that same casita-born energy into her performance here. She opens the performance with the title track to her new album, “It Was a Home,” a twinkly piece complete with nostalgic riffs and soft percussion. She mentions that she was featured in Saba’s 2018 Tiny Desk, but this is her first time owning the performance herself — and she hardly takes a beat after the song is over to bask in the glory of her center-stage experience before she takes her time naming every person on stage – and off – who built the 15-minute performance. Moving on to her upbeat, zanier number, “Apple,” she brings more “friends” (instrumentalists, vocalists and puppets included) on screen for the performance. Closing with a full-bodied, chorally-backed performance of “Casita,” she once again takes the time to give the voices around her equal space alongside her own.

But her community – these featured musicians, the city of Chicago, Latinas across the country – aren’t the only people she’s elevating here. She’s using this space, her casita and this moment in her career to speak to her inner child, as she describes in “It Was a Home.” She’s assuring her that when she’s all grown up she’ll use her voice to shine a light on her casita, beseeching the entire world to marvel at its beauty.
