Prince

In 1996, I was invited to Paisley Park to hear Emancipation.

Prince was finally free of his prohibitive recording contract with Warner Brothers Records, thus the title of the album, a 3-record set.

It was his first recording to include covers of songs he loved. He told me that he wished that he had written “One of Us”, a hit by Joan Osbourne.

In this song, he famously changed the lyrics “What if God was one of us / Just a slob like one of us” to “…Just a slave like one of us”.

HUMANWINE

This week have we have spotlighted aether the 40 song, 4 album set from HUMANWINE.

It is rare that we are blessed with such a powerful artistic masterwork. Contrary to our short instant fulfilment lifestyle, each album, which represents one of the four classical elements, should be listened to straight through.

We have violated this tenant this week with a song from each element.

Today is air.

HUMANWINE - aether- aer - cover

“White Lead” from aether: aer.

HUMANWINE

We are featuring one of the great releases this year, aether by HUMANWINE. Today is day 3 and the third classical element is ignis.

The song “Zero Gravity” is from fire.

HUMANWINE - aether- ignis - cover

“Zero Gravity” from aether: ignis

HUMANWINE

We continue to explore the monumental 40 song, 4 album set from HUMANWINE that we began yesterday.

Each album is a classical element and today is earth.

HUMANWINE - aether- terra - cover

“Bismuth” from aether: terra

HUMANWINE

In the era of the song, HUMANWINE, the dynamic Boston/New England duo, have released aether, a 4 album set!

Holly Brewer, the iconoclastic gregarious tribal-tattooed ethereal singer/songwriter, has one of those voices descended from the heavens in the company of Lisa Gerrard, Elizabeth Fraser and Bjork.

The reclusive M@ McNiss provides the accompaniment.

Self-produced and crowdfunded, aether is nothing short of a small masterpiece.

Released on a flash drive in a small bottle, the 40 songs are divided into four parts, four elements: terra, aqua, aer, ignis.

Although each element should be heard in its entirety, we will present 1 song from each album the next 4 days.

Beginning today with “Gyre” from aether: aqua.
