A Musical Interlude

In case you haven't guessed, things are getting a little tight around here in terms of free time and whatnot, hence the increasingly low and vindictive tone of this blog. So, to cheer you up (and following Mark K-Punk's superlative On The Corner Sessions review) here's some Miles Davis:

I think 2007 might have been considered a breakthrough year for M.I.A., at least in North America. I don't personally listen to her music, but I have noticed something is strange: I can find M.I.A. albums displayed and promoted equally well in the big ultra-mainstream pop stores in the mall as in the little out-of-the-way store that sells underground and avant-garde music. So when you get the time, you should do a blog that explains this M.I.A. phenomenon to me. Who else has achieved that kind of mainstream and underground acceptance in the past year?

She is a fascinating character in that respect, not least 'cos her sound involves a lot of music that's underground in Britain, but overground elsewhere (ragga, West African music, Indian devotional and pop music ('Hindi disco', not 'indie disco' ha!). I really wish I had gotten a copy of 'Kala' now.
