RAMESH! [18 Jan 2011|09:11pm]

aircrash
figured this might be relevant your interests!

RAMESH, the post-Voxtrot project of singer Ramesh Srivastava is loaded with emotion and with records like this, "The King", it requires a sonic smoothness, which is so deftly provided in this mixing job by Spoon's Jim Eno. Parts of the tune were crafted on a harmonium that Srivastava purchased in New Delhi—the first song he recorded on it, after having an arduous time getting it through customs. And there is something to be said about that because there is a sense of triumph that runs through the song. While it is a tender thing, there is a spirit of conquer bleeding through the steady drumbeat and sweet strums and strings.


and you can download the song here. it's lovely.

Lyrics to "I Walk Away"? [15 Jun 2010|11:54pm]

signifiers
I don't know if anyone's checking this community anymore, but does anyone have the lyrics to "I Walk Away"? I can understand most of it, but there are two lines that I can't get:

-the first line of the chorus: "Oh, write me some old story about my lazy ______" Quarantine? Boyhood teens?
-the line after "And leave a trail of curses laid out in song". It sounds like: "The old [something] lingers on, so much [something something] his bad seed." WHAT IS THIS. Update: schicklove informs me this is "The old charm just lingers on, so much like history's bad seed."

Thanks so much!

 Hi all,
Well, there seems to be some bad news to break. It looks like Voxtrot will no longer be playing, as can be read in Ramesh's latest blog entry (here) and on the band's website. There are seven farewell tour dates announced:
  • 5/21: Chicago, IL
  • 5/22: Appleton, WI
  • 5/27: Los Angeles, CA
  • 5/29: San Francisco, CA
  • 6/3: Austin, TX
  • 6/23: Washington D.C.
  • 6/25: New York, NY
