I'm making the change, And I get it might be hard to grasp, But this is the real me. You don't have to like it, but I... I'm not going away for a while. Get used to this new face. I'm done hiding, This is the true me. Say what you want to my face. I don't care, You can say it to me. It's a lot to take in, Just tell me what you're thinking, You can be honest with me. You don't have to like it, but I... I'm not going away for a. This is who I am. (Thank you to the people who are interested enough to have stuck around as long as they have for your patience and support! You're all amazing, and I hope you enjoy this new direction in music I wanna take!)

2. The Lyman Woodard Organization ‎– Saturday Night Special (Album Sampler)

The Lyman Woodard Organization ‎– Saturday Night Special (Album Sampler)

Order vinyl / CD / digital: https://bbemusic.lnk.to/SaturdayNightSpecial In association with DJ Amir’s 180 Proof Records, BBE is honoured to present another gem from the small yet significant Strata catalogue. A precursor to New York’s Strata East, Detroit’s Strata Records was founded in the late 1960s by former Blue Note artist Kenny Cox. Starting life as a music-led community organisation, coffee shop studio and venue, Strata released only a few titles as a record label, gaining the imprint a cult following among record collectors and jazz lovers across the globe. Possibly the best known of Strata’s releases, The Lyman Woodard Organization’s ‘Saturday Night Special’ is rightly heralded as a jazz fusion classic. Recorded in 1975, ‘Saturday Night Special’ features organ, electric piano and Mellotron by bandleader Lyman Woodard alongside guitar and bass by Ron English, with drums and percussion by Leonard King, Bud Spangler & Lorenzo “Mr. Rhythm” Brown respectively. Despite the fairly sparse instrumentation, ‘Saturday Night Special’ lays down an impressive wall of sound, powerfully atmospheric in its almost low-fi aesthetic. Hinting at more traditional jazz, rhythm & blues, afro-cuban styles and more, the uniqueness of this album is surely in its feel: summoning up images of a vast industrial landscape, assembly lines and urban decay. In other words, this record sounds like Detroit. No great album artwork is complete without a good story to match, and ‘Saturday Night Special’ does not disappoint. Snapped by photographer and political activist Leni Sinclair (responsible for seminal pictures of Miles Davis, Fela Kuti and John Coltrane and many others), the cover image shows the contents of Lyman Woodard’s pockets placed on the hotel bed after a show: cigarette papers, cash and a pistol. Following Woodard’s death in 2009, this incredible album was reissued in highly limited numbers by Wax Poetics; now just as hard to come by as the original pressings. It’s our pleasure to make this important and influential chapter in the story of contemporary jazz available on vinyl once again.

Nervous Young Inhumans

Heyo! Back again with another song. This time a cover of Nervous Young Inhumans by @car-seat-headrest! Please go support Car Seat Headrest! twitter.com/carseatheadrest carseatheadrest.bandcamp.com/ open.spotify.com/artist/5PbpKlxQE…i8RqefIwdkhJybtg Keep up to date w/ me! twitter.com/slymanmusic Also available for streaming on... Spotify: open.spotify.com/album/5qqUzlfv7j…SDQp6qcmqrscJaGQ YouTube: https://youtu.be/nw-GMH6ewdk Lyrics: You should've seen my cursive back then, Every letter was above the line. My ps and qs raised their stems, So nothing crossed beneath. I'm a little better now. You never lifted your voice, You never raised your hand, You never showed me your inhuman, You understand. Art gets what it wants and art gets what it deserves. Most people are jokes but you're so real. Most of the time that I use the word “you,” Well you know that I'm mostly singing about you. You swore you'd never use the face that your ex invented, So let's meet up in uncanny valley. You never lifted your voice, You never raised your hand, I only show you my inhuman, You understand. You'll get what you want and you'll get what you deserve. You'll get what you want and you'll get what you deserve. The Cold Numb lingers behind me at all times. Sometimes I forget it’s there, Sometimes it grabs me by the neck and shoots me across the room at the wall. The impact snaps every bone in my body in two or three or five or ten or twenty, And I slide onto the floor unable to move. I can’t reach for those who could help, I can’t scream for the ones who could comfort, I’m paralyzed until the Cold Numb flees. Sometimes I can kill it, But only with the help of those who empower me with the fuel to rip its heart out, And even then it’s only a temporary tattoo that’ll eventually wash off, And it’ll come back with a vengeance and rip my eyes out, Only to leave and come back yet again. This is a fault of my own that I’ll deal with. It’s here to punish me for the hearts I’ve broken, The burdens I’ve set upon the souls who never deserved it, Until the day of my demise dawns upon the world. Please don’t give me your sympathy. Give it to the who’s with broken hearts. Give it to the what’s who deserved the best for them. Give it to the when’s for their time is always ticking. The Cold Numb is a fault of my own, and it’ll linger till the day I die. I'd like to thank Will Toledo for writing this tune. I've been pretty much obsessed with Car Seat Headrest since late February, the 27th if I recall correctly. Since then, I've been absolutely obsessed with the music they made. So obsessed, that I ended up getting tickets to see them live in July a day after I heard Twin Fantasy. The words and the harmonies and the sounds danced in my ears and helped me get through life a bit longer. If I hadn't been introduced to their music, I'd never have wanted to reach out of my comfort zone from the electronic music I was making. I'd have stayed their and been unsatisfied with myself and the music I made. But now I've been learning instruments and doing things differently and it's making me happy. I'm becoming much more proud of myself, and I have Will and Car Seat to thank for that. Thank you for turning my life around. Let's burn this house down. Let's burn this house down. Let's burn this house down. Let's burn this house down. (One last HUUUUGE thank you to Will Toledo and the rest of Car Seat Headrest for being super fucking awesome and making music that I fucking LOVE!! In case ya'll ever read this, you guys have really helped me through some confusing and really fucking rough times, and I couldn't be more thankful for you guys giving me the motivation to keep moving forward. So yeah, thank you so much for that.)
