Butter Team Weekend Beats Vol. 15






















Woke up sweating in the American Garden Building on West 81st, peeled back cranberry sheets and an herbal mint facial mask under the horrifying realization that it's the haties and no one has yet caught M.I.A.'s devastating danga dengue fever. For twenty years, no one will feel Junior Senior's sweaty hand claps brush against their cheek(s), master blast OCDJ's frenetic 16-bit Bmore beats down St. Paul, or dance the footloose in a moonlit robot factory with Midnight Juggernauts.

Thankfully it was only a dream within a dream, because Good God man, if even one percent of our loyal Butter Team guests has not yet felt all of these things then we don't deserve sleep. Tomorrow (today), we've baked these beats together to offer a funky pollo, tomate y greens-filled calzone, so with your feet in the air and your head on the ground, try this chicken spinach. Yeah.

Midnight Juggernauts - Nine Lives
OCDJ - Trip Trip
Junior Senior - Simple Minds Do Simple Things
Mountaineers - Apart From This
M.I.A. - 20 Dollar
Daft Punk - Revolution 909

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
