Disc de la setmana: Aloe Blacc “Good things”

La recomanació d’aquesta setmana va de soul, Neo-soul amb un cert regust clàssic, aquell soul de guerrilla amb missatge que ens cantaven els mites del 70 com Isaac Hayes o Marvin Gaye.

Aloe Blacc (1979), és el culpable d’aquest interessant disc “Good thing” (2010) . Com deia abans té un regust a vell que ho fa irresistible.

Un disc força variat on escoltarem temes que semblen trets de una de les “pelis” de Shaft, altres de funk-reggae, d’altres per ballar agafadots i un excel-lent “Good Thing” amb perfum a blackXplotation.

Good Thing, suposa una regeneració en la  música de Aloe Blacc, especialment la recerca d’un canvi social. Escrit i compost per ell ens introduex en el mon de l’atur, dels sense sostre, de l’apropiació indeguda de la riquesa, de la manca de compassió del capitalisme. A la fi lletres i composicions artesanes on per damunt de toto trovem un Aloe Blacc, reflexiu i estimulant.

Hey lady , don’t you remember you was my lover you was my friend.
Hey sister , I know you remember you left me a long night wanting back in.
Hey mama , don’t you here me? I can be a sucker for your love.
Hey girlfriend , I understand it is what it is and it was what is was.
And ever since youve been gone , it’s been a lot of good things going on.
And ever since you left that day , it’s been a lot of good things going my way.
What can I say? The clouds done rolled away.
What can I say? Ain’t nomore rainy days.
I’ll tell you , when you left me I thought I would never love again.
Because you had me all confused and twisted up inside , I thought it was something that I did.
Oh honey , you wouldn’t wanna know what was going on inside my head!
Now everything is fine , you’re out of my mind.
I’m able to love myself instead.
Ever since you’ve been gone , it’s been a lot of good things are going on.

Ever since you left that day , it’s been a lot of good things are going my way. What more can I say? The clouds done rolled away.
What more can I say? Ain’t nomore rainy days!
Now, dont you wish you wouldve stayed?
Look at the good things , good things that I’ve made.
I’m better without you , ever since you ran away.
Been a lot of good things , good things everyday.
Ever since you’ve been gone.
Been a lot of good things , good things going on.
Ever since you left that day , it’s been a lot of good things good things come my way!

Ever since youve been gonnnnnnnnnne
