The Gift - Around The Way Queen by Jimetta Rose
Sometimes a gift can take a lot longer to deliver than you would hope. You cant find the right tools to properly package it. Or its not as shiny as you think the one receiving it would like it to be.
Jimetta Rose began this journey in 2014. Her and House Shoes had linked up for Castles on his Let It Go LP a couple years prior. Shoes had started a record label, Street Corner Music, and launched the label with a series of ten handcrafted beattapes from relative unknowns, The Gift.
He had an idea for a full length SCM project with Jimetta, where they would choose one beat from each of The Gift volumes. Could be crazy.
So they got to it, going through the series and choosing the tracks that elicited responses from the pair. After a few hours they had the backing sonics for Jimettas own volume of The Gift.
They began meeting at Tenacitys small studio apartment in Glendale. She would record her vocals in a closet, some hip-hop $#!# if there ever was any. The songs were coming out incredible, with a few very out of this world moments included.
With all the vocals now recorded, the next step was to mix.
This was a pivotal learning point for all involved. See, The Gift was dusty. Grandmas basement dusty. Rusty two-track... more
Live In Brisbane '21 by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
It was a miracle this show happened. Wed planned 5 night residencies in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Hobart, Adelaide and the Brisbane jaunt was the only one which wasnt cancelled. Well it was cancelled, but not til night four. In hilariously unlucky circumstances I had severe food poising the night before night one. Laying on the cold tiles in a puddle of my own sweat, I asked myself how and I supposed to play a show tomorrow? I ran to the toiled to vomit green stomach bile once again and shat myself on the way. It raced down my leg and made a reverberant slap as it landed on the carpet. This show is gonna be interesting. And it was. The music was healing. A purge. Melodic medicine. Injected by my gizzard comrades and propelled by the punters enthusiasm, the vibrations warmed the body and soothed the stomach. And now, a spoonful of miracle for all of you. Love stu xox

That is beyond comprehension...
Can't wait to hear more from Kognitif! He seems to have gone AWOL for a while now...'
