basement tapes session #12

August 16, 2008

On the heels of dropping their sixth full-length effort, Radio Retaliation, on September 23rd the dynamic DJ duo of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, collectively known as Thievery Corporation, recently rolled into Milwaukee’s Summerfest for a musical and visual feast that forged the world musical boundaries of Africa, Asia, Jamaica, South America and The Middle East together into one intense electronically-fuelled rave party.

The Washington, DC-based duo, perched high in the center of the sprawling stage behind two mixer/turntables, were flanked by a dizzying array of exotic vocalists, dancers and world musicians (from Congo percussionists to sitar player). Having been graciously invited to this performance to capture the ensuing five multi-cultural tracks, Thievery Corp. perfectly set the tone of the evening with a sneak peak from their forthcoming record as they broke into their hypnotic reggae dub number “Sound The Alarm.” They also delivered rich Brazilian beats on “Sol Tapado” from their 2005 album The Cosmic Game (an effort that also featured the talents of David Byrne, The Flaming Lips and Jane’s Addiction Perry Farrell), along with, possibly, their most recognizable song, “Lebanese Blonde,” which was featured on the soundtrack for Zach Braff's 2004 film Garden State.

We were also lucky enough to be able to document three remarkable tracks from their 2002 album The Richest Man In Babylon – “Omid (Hope),” “Liberation Front,” where the two accompanying vocalists injected a bit of James Brown’s “Get Up Offa That Thing,” and the alluring “Facing East,” the latter which is featured in its entirety as a video below.

The five audio tracks featured as part of this session, along with the accompanying video, is a near-perfect snapshot of this arresting politically-charged act capable of unifying international borders through the power of their music… one that Garza and Hilton can only explain as their own ‘Outernational Sound.’
