Julian Casablancas+The Voidz // “Human Sadness”


Todos nos recordamos del vocalista de The Strokes, ¿verdad? Y si lo último que escuchamos de él fue un disco muy malo con su banda y su disco debut como solista no encantó para nada nuestros oídos. Entonces entenderán porque hesitamos en hablar de su nuevo track que proviene de su álbum con la banda The Voidz, titulado Tyranny (no z’s, sorry), que viene con la cara de Casablancas derretida en el arte. Cult Records, el mismo sello Julian lanzará el disco el 23 de Setiembre. Al darle una oportunidad al track nos encontramos con algo raro pero que merece atención.

“Human Sadness” incorpora música underground de alrededor del mundo  de los 70’s y 80’s mientras Casablancas intenta darle armonía a la canción con su voz, apoyada de una producción ciento por ciento análoga y técnicas de sampleo. El corte es fascinante en so contenido (de todas manera abajo esta la letra), lleno de ideas, constantemente en movimiento, revelando poco a poco nuevos trucos y evolucionando su sonido aún cuando toda la cosa parece que se esta envolviendo a sí misma desde el principio. 

“Human Sadness”:

beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field, i will be meeting you there


Put money in my hand
And I will do the things you want me to 
Overriding wisdom
Usually common sense

Should I delete it
You said you’d read it
You promised you would never ruin it with sequels

I wake for you
On and on

 Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
 I will be meeting you there

The moon’s a skull, I think it’s grinning
The room is full of people now I think it’s spinning

Wanted you
Didn’t ask for nothing
Wait for you
On and on

And I don’t need your tie, I don’t need to, tired of saying it
We don’t need more talk, don’t empty out your canteen on the desert floor
Ahhh, it’s all my fault

Never wanna spell it out
I just want to say that it is all my fault
I could never spit it out
I don’t wanna fix your tie

Never want to say we’re sad
Thankful that we got some chance
I know you won’t get back your time

I wish that you could take it back

Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there

He wanted it more than me, I suppose
I was in a rush to wait in a line
Now I hear echoes of my old self
This is not the way to be
All at once
I lost my way

Is it not true, the things that we did?
Come here at once and look what they did
Come here shut down and tune in tonite
Learn the words that they teach you without you realizing it
Come here sit down and watch some tv

Mine all mine
Wait your turn
Cross my cross
Slice his hand
Not your son
Not your friend
Not your enemy

I rely on the little things to get me by
Conscience says “I’m ok”
You don’t hear what they say
“He’s not my son, search his home”
Off to war
It’s time to go hide inside

Soft skin              
Weak chin     
Just walk me thru it, tell me what to do I’ll do  

Hurry hurry, that’s my baby
Ohh, do what you can

All the time – he waits for me.
And now we talk from time to time

Hits you on the head when nobody’s there
Then he says ‘come here could you fix my tie?’

It’s never gonna be
To be is not the way to be

Show me where to go don’t get angry so quickly
Fuck depression

Beyond all ideas of right and wrong there is a field
I will be meeting you there
Understanding is more important than love
If not money will always trump justice

All is lost
I’ll find my way
So I say
To be is not to be
To be is not the way to be
