Free Today 05:33
“When we are away, we can and do learn new words, new concepts, new angles. We encounter new authors who spark moments of revelation. But feminist theory does not start there. Feminist theory might even be what gets you there. Within the academy, the word theory has a lot of capital. I have always been interested in how the word theory itself is distributed; how some materials are understood as theory and not others.” (Sara Ahmed, Living a Feminist Life, Duke University Press, 2017, p.8) You’re free today All the winds will carry you a good way You’re free today And all your good will will be shown You’re free today You don’t have to tell jokes that you can’t tell anyway cause you’re free today And I can see your good will And you don’t shake hands with hands from the other side No you don’t shake hands if the hands are not just right And you don’t shake hands If the good is not in sight (what ever!!!) (stumbled over the words) And you don’t shake hands if the hands are not just right Rosa: ok lets keep going, common So get out to the lake Rosa: yessss! it’s your last swim in 2018 an autumn swim and you take off your shoes Rosa: that’s right! Lisa: kick them! Rosa: yes! And you let your trousers slip down your ankles Lisa: Alright! Okay! Rosa: U-huh! You take off your bra! Let them hang! Lisa: Yeaaaaah Rosa: They’re hangin I can feel em! And you glide into the water like a venus in oblivion Lisa: Aaaahh! So nice! You’re free today You don’t sign any contract that you don’t agree to Rosa: No! No, I will not! Lisa: You won’t, we won’t! You’re free today Lisa: Yesss! You don’t smile if you don’t want to Rosa: Yes! Lisa: You’re free today. Cause You’re free today Lisa: Yeah. You’re free today. Rosa: Yah! And you don’t dance any dance that you won’t dance anyway Rosa: Yes, sister! Lisa: Yeah, don’t dance any dance! Cause you’re free today Rosa: That’s right! Relax you’re face Rosa: Aawwww yesssss You don’t have to smile if you don’t want to Lisa: Yesss. You’re free today! And you don’t shake hands with the people that you don’t like And you don’t shake hands If the good ones are out of sight No you don’t shake hands If the hands are not just right the real hands, the hands that I love!!! And you don’t shake hands if the hands are not just right Amen!

Beat Again 04:51
Let’s do it again Who told you A heart is made of glass Everyone hurts I’ll look for your wounds and heal them If your heart’s longing We’ll surely be able to feed it All up with what it needs to go on beating And make it Beat again, beat again „I lost all my tendency to care“ Beat again, beat again Don’t be so scared Didn’t you know A heart is endless Skip through your archive See how you made it Ever once more You gathered up feeling You jumped as easy As if it was spring. A heart made of glass A picture malicious And out of meaning. We gotta make it beat deeper Beat again, beat again Beat again, beat again. Beat again, beat again. Beat again, beat again. I hear it calling, make it beat. „I lost all my tendency to care!“ Beat again, beat again. „I’m fighting, surviving“ Beat again, beat again. „I lost all my tendency to share!“ Beat! Beat again, beat again. „Fighting, surviving all the time Pretended nobody was theeeere Uuuhhg surrender Ahhhh“

Time is a screw i guess i spent some time with you kept chasing moments spent moments chasing you rain never fell so fast never felt this way at the grocery store at night kottbusser tor Oh my love, oh my love If living was that easy why wouldn’t it be easy with me (you will know when you have to go, you will know when you have to go!) You don’t have to change it for me What you are is what it’s about! (you will know when you have to go, you will know when you have to go!) Given there’s an answer would you give this answer to me? (you will know when you have to go, you will know when you have to go!) oh my love, oh my love oh my love, oh my love

Stille 05:20
Hörst du mich noch Ich bin da Wo wir ganz verloren waren Wo du gesagt hast, dass Wörter keinen Sinn mehr haben. Brauchst du was, kann ich das für dich holen Bring ich dir gern Dafür musst du mit mir reden Da wo du bist ist Stille, Stille, Stille Wie frisch gefallener Schnee Wie neues Land Wie der erste Tag Im neuen Jahr Da wo du bist ist Stille Stille Stille Wie ein Heiligtum Ein Drumherum Das keiner versteht Aber jeder fühlt Ich verlier mich So wie du dich Doch ich mich schlimmer Verlier mich in dir Die Du doch schon immer So unmöglich warst Kommst du mir mir raus Gehen wir aus Zeigst du dein Gesicht Es macht mich glücklich Es zu sehen Du musst nicht reden Einfach nur aufstehen Da wo du bist ist Stille, Stille, Stille Wie frisch gefallener Schnee Wie neues Land Wie der erste Tag Im neuen Jahr Da wo du bist ist Stille Stille Stille Wie ein Heiligtum Ein Drumherum Das keiner versteht Aber jeder fühlt

Post Office 02:42
Oh my lover doesn’t know me and the way he’s loved by me He learned what’s north when we met.. but never met my continent! Come to my garden of senses be one with what you fear and what you miss See what a graceful thing it is To be at the mercy of your feelings I told him baby move with me I told him to be soft and benign I told him, it is so easy: It will hurt so good, you’ll love to cryyyy Ohhhh Oh my lover doesn’t know me He never talks to me I can’t shake off the impression that I’m just too much for him I feel alone in the desert will he bring rain to the desert?! get close in touch in the desert?! It would be so much better! I asked him to be vulnerable I begged him to take time and be slow I asked him to be needy I felt attracted when he showed some feeling Yeah, oh my god yes! Ohhhhh Is this a bad feeling?! Now we’re crying again! In the studio! And we’re crying in the park! In the metro, on the metro station! Oh good lord here we’re crying again by the freezer, in the super market and at the post office!

If I don’t do what I say Does that mean that I’m crazy (No!!!) Just one step after the other They don’t know that I’m in another Time – space – reality No grace appears to me I’m on a rollercoaster Blasting through Get chased by hundred hounds Trying to talk to you (Rollercoaster) If I never come on time Does that mean I’m not benign (No!!!) Love you all to full exhaustion Give my time – space with no caution I need to Find – pace – reality No grace appears to me I’m on a rollercoaster Blasting through Get stung by swarms of bees Trying to listen to you. (Rollercoaster) I think I’ve come to a conclusion All I need is a good fusion (Yeah!!!) You could be my petit bourgeois Pushing through while I’m on your sofa Trying – cre – ativity No rules apply for me I’m on a rollercoaster Burning through I’d like to cool it down To have more of us two. (Rollercoaster, rollercoaster, uuuuh.) You could be my petit bourgeois Being steady when I am just trying Be my loyal telescope brother Pushing through in even lines. Live’s a rollercoaster rollercoaster rollercoaster

Albertine Sarges Berlin, Germany

After numerous collaborative projects, including Holly Herndon and Itaca, Albertine brings together a new band, the titular Sticky Fingers for their debut LP. Albertine grew up in Kreuzberg during the fall of the Berlin Wall and records in nearby Neukölln - but from there its branches shoot out to take in feminist theory, musings on bisexuality, gender ste-reotypes, depression and mental health. ... more
