Obama's Inauguration Poetress on new Agriculture CD.
In typical /Rupture and Shadetek stylee, the new Agriculture Release, "Solar Life Raft" includes a rainforest's ecology full of sound sources. Track 20, which is actually 3 songs in one ID includes: “Matty G, ‘Layin in Bed,’ DJ/Rupture f. Elizabeth Alexander, ‘Overture: Watermelon City (Acappella), Lloop, ‘Autumn Rain.’” Elizabeth Alexander spoke at Obama's Inauguration.
from Obama's inauguration:
"Say it plain: that many have died for this day.
Sing the names of the dead who brought us here,
who laid the train tracks, raised the bridges,
picked the cotton and the lettuce, built
brick by brick the glittering edifices
they would then keep clean and work inside of.
Praise song for struggle, praise song for the day.
Praise song for every hand-lettered sign,
the figuring-it-out at kitchen tables.
Some live by love thy neighbor as thyself,
others by first do no harm or take no more
than you need. What if the mightiest word is love?"
Fader covered the free MP3 (including another drop, Gang Gang Dance, “Bebey” (DJ/Rupture and Matt Shadetek Remix) here.
