Mike’s Monday Muse – Ted Taylor

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

Ted Taylor was an overlooked R&B musician born in Oklahoma in 1934. His music has been sampled by Kendrick Lamar, Ludacris and others. As far as I can tell this amazing song, “Cummins Prison Farm,” did not appear on the original 1972 album, Taylor Made, but came out on the 2007 reissue.

Fasman’s Finds – Odunsi

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

Now that it’s spring, I want to listen to music that’s lighter, that makes me move, that makes me want to be outside, that reminds me of having a body and being part of larger ecosystems. I’ve been listening to Everything You Heard Is True by Odunsi (The Engine). It’s a synth-y, percussive, spacey RnB album and I can’t get enough of it right now. 

Odunsi is really good at creating space on a track – some of the percussive elements sound like breath (you can hear it clearly in Shuga Rush but really it’s throughout the whole album), and there’s welcome space between the exhalations. In a season of rebirth and rediscovery, it’s refreshing for breath and the body to be so present on an album.
