Canadian quartet BadBadNotGood take on creating the ultimate Late Night Tales selection of tracks from their record collections. "Every track on this comp was either shown to us by an incredible person or made by one of our friends," the band explains. "We also included a little cover of a song by one of our favorite current musicians, Andy Shauf. These artists, as well as many, many others, have influenced us to create, and kept our deep love of music alive. "
You can even hear little bits of BadBadNotGood through this mix, as though they are transmitting parts of themselves through the music they select. Perhaps the keys on Admas' hilariously expensive "Anchi Bale Game," maybe, or the arrangements on Delegation's mighty Britsoul tune "Oh Honey" or the groove from "Vida Antiga," Erasmo Carlos' Brazilian classic. As Janis almost sang, take another little piece of my art.
This is an international effort: Velly Joonas' Estonian version of "Feel Like Makin' Love," Kiki Gyan, Admas and Francis Bebey representing Africa (Ghana, Ethiopia and Cameroon respectively), Les Prospection from France, Scots' Boards Of Canada and fellow Canucks River Tiber and Charlotte Day Wilson. Finally, there's the no-small-matter of the Late Night Tales cover version, in which BadBadNotGood take on Andy Shauf's "To You" is turned into a mournful delight. while the Queen Of Siam herself, Lydia Lunch, delivers a sexual sermon involving only you, her and Jim Beam.
