MUSIC – BLISS GODDESS

bliss-goddess-logoFrom their Facebook Page:
Bliss Goddess music, visual art and temple dance is an alchemy of the ancient, future and eternal present. As sonic shamans, they blend live instruments and ethnic percussion with remixes of the hottest tracks from the best tribal dub and world electronic dance music artists. The music is brought to your eyes by projected visionary art and sacred geometry, while radiant Temple Dancers invoke and embody the Divine Feminine, leading the listener/dancer on a journey across exotic, lush landscapes.

 

I first discovered BLISS GODDESS earlier this year while doing a Soundcloud search for artists and bands that relate to spirituality in one form or another. I found a live recording of their Jan. 29th show in Austin earlier this year. Continue reading “MUSIC – BLISS GODDESS”

CD Review: Alcest – “Les Voyages De L’Ame” 2012 (Prophecy)

Genre: Post Black Metal/Shoegaze

Every now and then a CD comes along that beholds a sense of beauty, a vision of emotion, and a strong longing for greater thoughts to culminate and inspire one to create something within one’s own life and imagination. The first time I listened to Alcest’s “Les Voyages De L’Ame” CD all the way through I felt a need to work on the things that bring me joy and embrace the failures of the past and move past them. Yeah, you might say that’s hard to come by from a genre like Black Metal, where imagery of negative forces and hatred abound, but Alcest is more than heavy music, even so, only two or three out of the eight tracks are in that ‘heavy’ category. The rest of the music has a hauntingly, other world feel through out that leaves you wanting more from this band. At the moment the only band that comes to mind is Agalloch which had that haunting nihilistic feeling on their 2002 “The Mantle” CD, yet, Alcest’s music comes from the polar opposite with lyrics longing for the escape from this cold harsh world and the aspirations and loves of something more.

Quick Find: Ahmed Bukhatir – Islamic Nasheed Singer

Another gem of a find is in the music of Islamic singer AHMED BUKHATIR. The first song I hear was an English nasheed* called “Forgive Me.” Even though the English isn’t very well put together the essence and the emotion is felt. The video for the song shows Ahmed coming in contact with various children, one with no leg, another with no sight, and one with no hearing. When he realizes these things his words, “Oh God, forgive me when I whine” A subtle and strong song about how we complain about things in life and when we come to the realization of other people’s suffering, we must humble our selfs about trivial things.
