Nai Palm – Have You Ever Been (to Electric Ladyland)

Track: Have You Ever Been (to Electric Ladyland)
Artist: Nai Palm
Album: Needle Paw
Originally by: Jimi Hendrix from The Jimi Hendrix Experience album

A friend of mine sent me this clip when it came out on Youtube and it has been one of the songs released this year that I quite cherish.

The imaginary Electric Ladyland is said to be inspired by Jimi Hendrix’s notorious promiscuity. However with Nai Palm’s, cripplingly raw vocals, and masterful guitar playing (that does more than just do the genius of Jimi justice) – the song takes on an entirely new context.

You’d be forced to see the soul in Jimi Hendrix’s entire artistry now.

Nai Palm is two-time Grammy nominated singer-songwriter and guitarist to one of my favorite musical discoveries of 2015, Hiatus Kaiyote. Purveyors of future-soul, with their lush instrumentation, I can totally see why Nai Palm felt like she had to do Needle Paw.

She’s headed backwards with her voodoo magic – and she’s taking us with her to a little breather into real love and nostalgia.

 

 

Have you ever been to Electric Ladyland?
The magic carpet waits, for you
So don’t you be late.
I wanna show you the different emotions,
I wanna run to the sounds and motions.
Electric woman waits for you and me.
So it’s time we take a ride,
Cast our hang-ups over the seaside.
While we fly right over the love filled sea
Look up ahead, I see the loveland,
do you understand?

Make love, make love, make love, make love.

I wanna show you, angels gonna spread their wings
I wanna show you, good and evil lay side by side
while electric love penetrates the sky
I wanna show you

Hello, World, Happy Thanksgiving, America

A week ago my folks were telling a very compelling story about how stars aligned for them as they scored the largest marked-down turkey (a monstrous 15-pounder) at the grocery for Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving.

According to my mental arithmetic, means another year ends. Again.

I panic and buy myself a shabby piece of internet real estate.

Hello.

My name is Tzaddi

My Hebrew name makes my descent sound unplaceable but my ancestors never had to cross the Atlantic to flee religious persecution in Europe.

Before you get creative, I am all Filipino.

Even if I wished it as a kid, I could not be in any way related to Pocahontas neither.

Still on every fourth Thursday of November my family fusses over Thanksgiving dinner like the rest of America.

Admittedly, it’s more of a quirk than anything religious.

Though in essence, my family does have reasons for thanks as any pilgrim come to the New World; liberty to practice one’s own faith.

I realized when earlier this year my sister was married by our own pastor in front of all our relatives, Catholic and Muslim.

Growing up, we’ve always kept Sabbath quietly behind doors out of love and respect for our grandfather than anything else. He’s always known and out of love for us, in turn has always kept a blind eye.

Anyway, I’m only coming to appreciate how wonderful it is to be openly acknowledged for it finally.

Apart from all the rough training and all the little loves and great joys this year has seen… being what we choose to be and not having to deny it or apologize for it every time is the one overlooked gift I’m glad my family has thanksgiving day for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
