SOUL FOOD @ The Espy

SOULFOOD

This night looks great! Not just because I’m there, but the great local talent again! Electric Empire with a new album really close and just after they slayed them at Glastonbury, I can’t wait to hear them. Then there’s the Melodics and the Cumbia Cosmonauts who have just released their debut LP. Not to mention the rest, I’ve banged on about them before! But flying in from Detroit is ELZHI from Slum Village here alone, hopefully to rep his new awesome album Elmatic, a tribute to Nas’ “Ilmatic” only Detroit styles with the WILL SESSIONS band behind him, on the shelf at Northside now! HURRY!elzhi

SWEETHEARTS the Documentary!

Sweethearts play soul.They mainly play in a Motown inspired style, a central part of the world’s music heritage but one rarely heard live in Australia. The sound of young America has become the sound of young Australia – Geelong’s Motorcity Soul. Thats GEETROIT baby!

For the past fifteen years they have been playing loving homage to Motown, developing a unique perspective on a cornerstone of 21st Century music that has infused their own compositions and arrangements. Not just Motown, the Sweethearts do Lance Ferguson and Kylie Auldist too!

Sweethearts are based at Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College, Victoria, Australia, where members can study Certificate IV in music, the highest industry based musical qualification available in any school in Australia. Thats right they are high school students, they have released 8 cd’s over the last 15 years and toured the world extensively. Under the soulful eye of Ross the Boss the Sweethearts now have a documentary about them! SO AWESOME! Don’t you wish you were a girl in Geelong when you were a teenager! BIG UPS TO AUSSIE SCHOOLS!! We got to get them and Cactus Channel together!

THE MELBOURNE SCENE…..?! really….

Well it aint no secret now, Jemery Sole, a radio cat from KCRW radio in Los Angeles, scored (an awesome holiday) a trip to Australia as part of a sponsored travelogue (tourism Australia). The purpose was to document what he could in terms of culture and good times and talent. I think Jeremy had mild expectations of what might be in stall, but I think he got BLOWN AWAY!He says, “Instead I found bands, deejays and producers that draw influence from other regions of the world, just like anyone else, but cull their strongest inspirations from their own souls – which is always the makings of the best music, in my opinion.”

He posted up a travel blog that you can access here…

It should be added to a little more, so keep checking…

It was great to speak with Jeremy and to sit back and actually look at what we have here in Melbourne. It is nice when an outsider (no Pony Boy jokes) comes in and opens you eyes a bit. Performances are by The Cactus Channel, Kylie Auldist, Monkey Mark, LOTEK & Morganics, Laneous, and loads more to come (I think).

To think this is just  a snapshot over one weekend…Pity we didn’t take him to the footy!
