On October 2nd, Brazilian Girls play the Beach at Governors Island, with Man Man and The Phenomenal Handclap Band. Over the course of two previous studio albums and countless all-nighters at their East Village clubhouse, Nublu, Brazilian Girls have established a reputation as New York's premier international party band. To attend a Brazilian Girls show—with its blur of beats, colors and textures—is to experience something like time travel: No one else is quite as capable of making a few hours fly by like a few minutes.
With Rabbit Habits, their Anti- Records debut, and the natural extension of their body of work begun with The Man In A Blue Turban With A Face and continued with Six Demon Bag, Man Man bring their incomparable vision to bear. Successfully capturing the raw spirit and essence of a Man Man live show, Rabbit Habits is the end product of the efforts of a band who are earnestly saying something important, even if you can't always make out the words over the blare of the sousaphone.
Legend of the world music scene Baaba Maal released his new album Television this summer. To celebrate the release, Palm and Giant Step are launching a competition to find a new, fresh remix of the album’s high-energy track "International".
Baaba sees language as an instrument and he searches for different ways to diversify his music- this newest album Television is a collaboration with New York’s Brazilian Girls, who helped him blend West African musical traditions with electronic dance music – the challenge is to keep the spirit of experimentation and fusion alive to create an innovative remix.
So if you’ve got creativity flowing through your veins, and a love of moulding music to make your own, this is the competition for you!
