Comedy as we know is obviously hilarious most times and on the other side, can be poignant, truthful and educational. Felonious Munk is a comedian in this vein and well known for the popular web series “Stop it B“, back recently after a long hiatus.
Reflections on a few issues by the humble President of Uruguay – José “Pepe” Mujica: “We have sacrificed the old immaterial gods, and now we are occupying the temple of the Market-God. He organizes our economy, our politics, our habits, our lives, and even provides us with rates and credit cards and gives us the appearance of happiness.
One came across this debut album recently, released in 2013 by A/T/O/S (A Taste Of Struggle), a project by London duo Amos and Truenoys on Deep Medi Musik. Ladies and gents, this is an elegant piece of audio, in a similar vein and reminds me of the rewind sessions with albums by Submotion Orchestra‘s – Fragments and Little Dragon‘s – Little Dragon.

Ladies and gentlemen, as we enter Spring in touching distance of Summer, here is a transitional track for your ears! An oldie but a classic goodie from M.anifest‘s album “Immigrant Chronicles” released in 2011 entitled “Blue“. A fine song by a talented emcee/entrepreneur, chopping sound lyrics in Twi (Ghanaian language), standard and broken English to a head-nodding/foot-tapping/hip-swaying beat. Have a butchers and for M.anifest‘s latest see “Apae Taxi Diaries” or visit Manifestations.
