SUPER POST: COMPLETELY (BUT NOT REALLY) UNRELATED MUSIC – K’naan + Comadre

03.05.2009

so i’ve had two artists come to my attention over the past few days who i feel are worth ‘blogging’ about. comadre is a band from california. they play a voracious brand of melodic punk rock designed to whip you into the most frenzied of frenzies. k’naan is a somalian-american-canadian hip-hop artist who draws as much influence from the african music and war-torn poverty of his childhood as from the swagger and upbeat playfulness of the american hip-hop he fell in love with. both comadre and k’naan take completely different approaches to capturing the vital, urgent energy that gets the listener involved, standing on equal footing with the artist, and bringing the listener inside the music and message.

“We are the doctors with all the prescriptions, can’t wait ’til our appointment comes. It’s the only medication.” – Comadre

“The dusty foot philosopher… lives in poverty, but lives in a dignified manner and philosophizes about the universe. They talk about things that well-read people talk about, but they’ve never read. They’ve never been on a plane, but they can tell you what’s beyond the clouds” – K’naan

more after the jump…

    “who the fuck is this Comadre band?”
    “have you heard that shit? it’s terrible. they’re the band that anyone over 20 doesn’t “get” and teenagers are freaking out about right now.”

    overheard at the fest, so true.
