The Sessions at Midori House: Villagers
Sediba. Eight. Does do it man. Hey, this is Connor from villagers, and this is a song called sweet safe savior. That it just as being the band of Irish musician Connery Brian for the lost decade. During that period, they've released five albums which have accumulated to mercury nominations and an Ivan fellow award that probably best nine for their fight music. But this latest album, the art of pretending to swim is much more electric. You'll find loops. And since spring, these folks onto the dance floor, it's about finding faith in religion and amusing and elsewhere for that matter which is reflected in knots to gospel songs under Brian's in relationship with his religious upbringing. Today, he plays a selection of stripped back songs from the the. The ten, chill it spreads. Never did a so tough chip bald. So. Fine. Never did a heartbe so fast sing. My. And all flow into the night with sing. No. Side at drang kid, I could not stay and from the floor up played my. Swear a sore attorney and sister sailing softly somewhere. Oh, sweet savior. Save me. Oh, sweet. Savio. Did is so tone should bald. Define. Never did a heart. So fast, sing, my. Praise. Ford field's lack turn ity. A sweet save. You don't do this to me. Never will is so tongue, chill bald, his define. Never will a hard. So fast play sing. My. Phrasing. Feels lack eternity. Save. Don't do this too. For what feels like you turn. Say, don't do this to me. Conroy Brian, Ovallis. Welcome to the sessions Missouri house. Hello, thank you doing an early session today. Thanks for stretchy over ten AM in the morning. Little croaky Connor. But yeah, it'll mean something and put of husk never mess. That's true. That's actually one of my sayings. You have just unleashed your brand new album onto the world, introduced us to the art of pretending to swim to pretend swim. It's a piece of my soul. Which has now left me and an enjoying performance at the moment. And I guess it's kind of an album abate the idea faith that was the working title for it, and you can kind of read into that what you will. It's kind of faith in the whitest possible sense of the word and it's got some some groovy tunes as well. We can dance around the kitchen. I mean, this idea of faith, I guess faith is something that has been with you in different shapes or forms. If we're talking about religion throughout your life, was there particular reason why he decided to tackle this on this album? Something shift, perhaps maybe in hindsight now that you say that it might have been. It might have been to do with things that were happening in Ireland, like the Myra to call the referendum repeal the and all these things which are almost repealing the Catholic church, you know, and that's I was I'm a certain age now where I was born in the time when I was ten, it was still illegal, actually be me. You know, homosexuality was decriminalised in nineteen Ninety-three in Orland. I definitely felt from ramifications that you know in my education and in the society around me, and I suppose all these kind of very positive social changes that happened in Ireland of. Maybe triggered something to to write about it. But I never really said I with that idea, it was all just face of conscious and flowing, I suppose, is this song called again. Space. Far move all. Flow. Two. Literate ready. It's so. Alone. We. Under the spouse. Into the show. In this. Is. Red beets. Again. Alone. I guess at the moment as well. There's a lot of faith lost in everything from the government -ociety media. Is that play on your mind as well when you write this up? Yeah, I remember what it was writing the. I got a text from my brother. Just going at it is just getting addicted to reading about Trump. I keep googling and then just getting really depressed like stuff. And yeah, it was the same. I just had to put my phone for read books again. What books pick up instead refined? I was reading on the big books from what I was writing. This was in my Angelou and I know why the cage bird sings. Which is kind of about her growing up in a depression era America, then just all of the racism and sexism and poverty and Gaza music, and all those things and her journey to becoming an incredibly prolific poet and author. And that was really inspiring when I was in writing, I suppose speaking of gospel music was the sort of music of faith spill hymns any sort of inspiration on this album is totally yeah, to the point where kind of sampled a group called the Dixie homing birds, which I think might be the longest running gospel group back. I might be wrong somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but became obsessed with mainly Jackson for awhile who's basically the Queen of gospel. And then she had a song called what then which she was singing much your he wrote. But and then I just went on a bit of a YouTube poll of. Various Frisians of that and found and Dixie birds, and then ended up leaping sampling it and and having him internal monologues about whether this was cultural appropriation not. But I decided it was cultural appreciation and just had love the foam with listening to wake Hulu music than I could ever make, then made my own awkward version of this is I mean, it's not a departure from your original fakery. Let's say it's more of a high tech development packs. Yeah. Did you approach making this Avin quite differently to your past albums? Totally yet. Basically, I just started learning how to build a studio and did that for almost maybe a year and completely neglected songwriting because I was just learning all the technical things mixing and just recording and learning to use new equipment and getting quite into very nerdy, things like frequencies and. All that kind of. And then I guess I kind of brought that to the west of Ireland went to friends is in place called castle Gregory and then basically learned how to write again, say, what have you got planned for their rest of the year of this record Turia Bougainville. That's an interesting phrase, Buki ING and religious dining. I like it. Thank you. Kind of makes you think of sort of village whole knees. Oh, yeah. Cool. Yeah, food green preservation society that are you taking your your villagers speaking on tour? Yes. Yeah, we're gonna tour everywhere. I'm gonna do. The biggest shows we've done yet, which is blowing my mind really excited about it. Around your e. k. and then probably next year America. This is a song called hold me down. Scene. This on. Way.

This week noted particular increases in bias crimes against blacks, gay men and Jews a deadly nor'easter slams the east coast not fan at the style. I left I can stay indoors and watch it and a farewell to Stanley use the man behind the superheroes. I guess one person. Tended all the head when world news this week continues. Looks like a war zone. It is. It's the devastation only. Fires of this kind could bring about that is California governor Jerry Brown on the wildfires laying waste to hundreds of thousands of acres. Firefighters making progress battling the flames which have destroyed the town of paradise in the north and much of Malibu in the south the deadliest fires in California history. At least sixty six lives lost hundreds of others are missing ABC's. Alec stone is in Los Angeles. Please as Rebecca Hackett was escaping the flames near her home in Malibu. She thought she was going to die the road surrounded by fire embers flying around her car and smoke making it tough to see where she was driving that. I'm not gonna make it out. But I just kept driving. Because I I didn't know what else to do. There is nothing else to do. I've just had to keep going. And she was like so many here in California who fought to stay alive. Others were on able to escape the flames. The magnitude of the fires in the north and south is only now being realized a firestorm overtook entire communities. Gary greens neighbor is missing. She's lived up the street from me, and she went to with us. Kidding around the town of paradise. So many are missing missing. Flyers are up. At shelters tent cities have been set up where residents who had a home two weeks ago are now homeless they have nowhere to go. Many have no cars because to burned in the fire interior secretary Ryan Zinke, this is my fourth trip to California. Unfortunately, every trip this year has been forced fires each trip. I say this is the worst fire I've seen and now we're here today in this is the worst fire I have seen that while the gruesome search for victims continues every night, you'd county sheriff Corey Honi releases. The latest numbers of human remains have been found. Search teams wearing white coveralls or working with anthropologists and DNA experts to determine which are animal remains in which you're human the sheriff defending their evacuation of paradise. This fire was moving so rapidly. We couldn't keep ahead of it. We did our absolute best. Nobody knows. How high the death count will go a mobile more has been brought in to help process remains that are found and so many families are holding onto hope that their loved ones are alive because it interim visiting California this weekend days after posting a tweet blaming the fires on state mismanagement as we hear from ABC news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. Firefighters were doing battle in a suburban hell scape over the weekend. When President Trump went on the attack blaming local officials and threatening to cut federal funding. There's no reason for these massive deadly and costly forest. Fires in California, except at forest management is so poor remedy now or no more fed payments. It's not clear exactly what the president was talking about the LA county fire chief was asked about it. Very hurtful responders or putting their lives on the line. And the president of the California professional firefighters association called Trump's words, quote, ill, informed, ill-timed and demeaning. Adding this shameful attack on California is an attack on all our courageous men and women on the front lines this week, President Trump sat down with top Republican senators to discuss a game plan for the rest of the year before Democrats take over the house in January ABC's. Karen Travers at the White House. Top priority for the president and Senate Republicans include funding for the department of homeland security bef- arm Bill disaster relief funding judicial nominations and prison reform. President Trump's also pushing for funding for the wall he wants to build on the US Mexico border and this seven week window may be his last best chance to get it. Meantime, a hotly contested US Senate races forced a hand recount of votes in Florida. The results do Sunday as we hear from ABC's. Mark Remillard after this week's recount left, the margin between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Bill Nelson little changed, the two are separated by just twelve thousand six hundred votes, a manual recount of all the ballots could not be tabulated by machines is now underway overseas in military votes are still come. In as well. So the margins between them could shift Scott's campaign has called on Nelson to concede, but Nelson has instead been pursuing lawsuits in an effort to get every Belet counted, Mark Remillard, ABC news. My house side democratic leader Nancy Pelosi looks poised to be reelected speaker in the new congress more on that from ABC's alley Rogan on Capitol Hill, fourteen current and incoming House Democrats who have said they will oppose Pelosi retaking the speaker's gavel when the entire house votes next session. One of them is Marcia fudge of Ohio. I think that if in fact, we relented on change, then we should change. But Pelosi said she's confident she has the votes to be reelected. The quote never Nancy group plans to warn Pelosi. They have the votes to block her. But so far they haven't chosen alternative the president. And first lady were in Paris last weekend marking the one hundred inverse Serie of Armistice Day the end of World War One with remarks by French president Emmanuel Macron believed by many to be an attack on his American counterpart ABC's Terry Moran now. In paris. Bells of Paris told and more than sixty world leaders walk through a cold rain down the shows one hundred years to the hour to the end of World War One President Trump arrive by motorcade apparently for security reasons, Latimer Putin arriving late exchange that quick hand. Shaken thumbs up with Trump French president, Emmanuel Macron spoke of the lessons of the war. And he issued an unmistakable rebuke to President Trump who in recent weeks, proclaimed himself, a nationalist. That's a word with dark overtones here in Europe. But Macron tried to draw a sharp distinction gown. Nationalism as the trail of patriotism, and he said the famous bromance between Trump and the chrome under pressure throughout this trip. Later, President Trump visited an American cemetery honoring the American fallen CNN's Jim Acosta was among the reporters covering the president's trip. He was banned from the White House press briefings when he and Mr. Trump tangled earlier this week, but a judge has now ordered his reinstatement federal judge in Washington said Friday, the White House must return the press credentials of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta. The White House said it will comply, but press secretary Sarah Sanders, tried to spin the ruling saying in a statement that the court quote made clear that there is no absolute first amendment right to access the White House. But the federal judge hearing the case repeatedly emphasized that his decision was based on the fifth amendment. Not the first and that it consta- was denied his right to do process. The indefinite revokation of Costa's press credentials known here. At the White House as a hard pass came on the heels of a heated exchange between President Trump and Kosta at a press conference on November seventh now the White House is calling for decorum. Sanders says they'll develop rules and procedures to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. President Trump on Friday did not directly address Kosta or the judge's ruling. After new rules and regulations asked to explain what that means the presidency. Justed consta- was hogging the Mike last week decorum. You can't take three questions four questions stand up and not shit. You have to practice decorum. Karen Travers, ABC news, the White House. Mr. Trump now saying he's finished his written answers to questions from special counsel, Robert Muller, take very long, and they were my answers date lawyers to do that. Now, you need lawyers for submittal voice to go over some of the angios, but they're not very difficult questions. So we're just tell ABC news the president's met with his legal team to discuss his written responses to questions and the president was irritated with a handful of those questions. Karen Travers at the White House a Justice department blender has revealed the US is secretly charging WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with a federal crime. Here's ABC news.

But assizes still fearful that the US will try to get him. He's been inside the embassy since two thousand twelve if are new charges against the sides races a possibility he could be extradited.

And he is honored nearly as many Americans who've died as are still alive, including Elvis Presley, deeply, patriotic Elvis served in the United States military. At the height of his fame.
