Antiquiet Podcast #34: Did you ever realize that something you loved intensely for most of your life is actually really fucked up?
We all know “Brown Sugar” for the timeless gem that it is, the Rolling Stones track that’s the template for about 75% of Eagles of Death Metal songs. But in truth, the words tell the tale of slaves from Africa who were sold in New Orleans and then beaten and raped by their white masters. The way the song is structured, it comes off as a fun rocker about a white guy having sex with a black girl.
Also discussed: New music from Jungle and a new project between Iggy Pop and Underworld, as well as Sorry to Bother You – the new film by the visionary Boots Riley, and starring LaKeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson.
