editor's pick


Night bus
babette & the prowlers 
folk,rockabilly, jazz, blues, alternative yoddling
Newly released under Nextune's Daughter.

On this short album babette assembles a fantastic band around her, the prowlers. Humans with real instruments in their hands. Humans with musical teeth and claws. Emotional turmoil and colorful home-recording techniques seep from thier latest album, the 'Night bus'. If this is truly the past and future of  jazz, blues, rock & folk rolled into one,  then the ticket for the ride is in really good hands. Her hands. With blue varnished nails. 
'Mat would love it, Lee would love it, Mimsy would love it, too. If only those guys knew what true hunger was and how to sing out of tune for soul food' explains babette. 'If my music were something edible, it would be a fried cod on bed of bithumen foam. If my song were something to ride, it would be a red bus stopped at a level crossing.'
Babette's wearing a top, maxi skirt, cap and necklace by babette versus. 
Iwona is pretty well dressed too.

greylag geese

Nad moją głową płyną dzikie gęsi.
Zataczają koła w powietrzu.
Z każdym okrążeniem układają się
w odmienny wzór na niebie.
Patrzę  w szary kalejdoskop.
Były żywym wężem.
Rozrzuconymi zabawkami.
Wielką literą W, która wypadła z alfabetu do góry nogami.
Koralikami  nanizanymi na nitki babiego lata.
Przędza ta, produkowana jest przez młode pająki.
Maleństwa podróżują  na cienkich nitkach.
Wolne od grawitacji i czasu.
Jak dzikie gęsi.
Teraz, moje gęsi odlatują w kluczu.
Na południe.
Wolne od grawitacji i czasu.
Jak pająki.
Szary kalejdoskop.
Wolny od grawitacji i czasu.

smoke


'What was i burning about? Oh, yeah, I remember. So, i'd been burning for quite a while when he arrived. 
I'd been mingling nicely with tinder, when he approached. I started to heat up a bit.  A nice spree en somme. I didn't feel like going out! No, I didn't see his face. I still had so much to burn on. No, his face was blured by the smoke. But i recognized him. Yeah, i did! It was him.'
Flames are speech.
Smoke is a thought you'd love to keep in your mind. 
It always escapes. You can't help it. You let it go
The sunset is a love song, you'd love to whisper sing forever. 
It always fades away. You let it go.
