about

“MFLS (Mutha Fuckin Love Song),” the second noaccordion video, was written, produced and directed by Indigo and the Belgian video artist Oliver de Lantsheere, who runs The Super Natural Factory production company in Oakland. The song is a vibrant blend of pop, hip-hop and electro that rides a simple bass line, punctuated with playful keyboard effects. The lyrics are sexually positive and uplifting, while Indigo’s singing is strong and confident, without any hint of coyness. The video’s stark black and white imagery, which includes a silent atomic explosion and fractured, eye-jarring digital effects, captures the aggression, confusion and ambivalent passion we feel in the first moments of infatuation, when desire and reason struggle for expression. “It’s a cathartic song about loving, letting go and not being attached,” Indigo says. “It’s not an angry song, despite the swear words.”

On Wake Up, the songs are bright and upbeat, perfect for clubs, car stereos and street corners. “Never Grow Up” is a conscious hip-hop track that praises the child-like joys of creativity. A mellow piano track supports the vocals of Indigo and Taj Angelo, an Oakland singer and producer who adds his soulful harmonies to the proceedings. “We use our a cappella-like moments to frame my white girl rapping,” Indigo says with a smile. Sci-fi keyboards and spacey background textures create a huge sonic space for “Give it All Away,” an impressive mash up of electro, dub step, synth pop and 90s dance music that urges listeners to pare their lives down to the essentials. It’s a prayer for sustainability in a time of massive overconsumption. “If we give all of our unnecessary belongings away, we’d have room for the things that would help us regain our balance in the world.” The EP also includes the dark, subliminal funk of “You Caught Me,” the jittery call to arms “Wake Up” and “Mama Nature,” a buoyant house track that actually features the accordion.

Polyrhythmic Dance Tracks, Goddess-Loving Hip Hop, and Beautiful Contradictions
Like the push and pull of accordion bellows, this tension generates a quirky blast of energy. Add club beats, underground MCs, freaky variations on deceptively familiar keys, a bit of surrealist wit, and a rebellious fight for greater openness, and you have noaccordion. ... more

INTRO

Mutha Fucka
Mutha Fucka

VERSE 1

I’m just a romantic
I fall in love real quick
I really like to spoil
That’s just the way I roll
I like your confidence
When we are more than friends

This is a Mutha Fuckin love song

Im touchy feely too
And super sexual
What’s between me and you
S’not intellectual
Animal inside me
That’s the one that guides me

This is a Mutha Fuckin love song

CHORUS
Mutha Fucka
Mutha Fucka
love song
Another lover
Another Mutha Fuckin love song

VERSE 2
I like time one on one
Concentrate on all fun
No rush to get job done
Even when we see the sun
I watch ourselves open
To all that’s unspoken

This is a Mutha Fuckin love song

You help wake up the Tantra
Inspire me to sing Mantra
We dare no try define us
Just only giving kindness
Grateful to know you
No breaking up to do

This is a Mutha Fuckin love song

CHORUS

VERSE 3

I’m just a lover girl
I’ll give it all a whirl
Cause you know what to do
That pleases me and you
Satisfy attraction
Chemical reaction

This is a Mutha Fuckin love song

It doesn’t take much
Under your fine touch
To make me squirl and scream
As if I were in dream
I’ll stay wide open
Sacred sex awoken

This is a Mutha Fuckin love song
Track Name: Never Grow Up ft Taj Angelo
VERSE 1
Never grow up, always show up
As the kid holding in tiny hand the magic cup
Be freeform, soul keep warm, now is the season
Climb up your neighbors trees for no good reason
Shower them with lazer beams, continue to tease them

Embrace your innocence, infant wonder
Immerse your daily life in all that’s to discover
Be open, a bit wild, release the inner child
Stick your thumb in the pie and lick it with such vigor
Tell em it’s the best you’ve tasted while givin them the finger

VERSE 2
Walk barefoot, on tree roots
Feeling soil seeping in between cracks of your hooves
Be alert, it might hurt, this path you’re walking
Have no fear, its all here
Continually unfolding like the petals of a flower
Now is the hour and the time we have been waiting for

Come lie down, on bare ground, one with earth below you
Just listen, and tune in, she has much to show you
Go back now, when as child, y’witnessed mother nature
And wer’awed by her presence and bowed down to respect her
Get up now, dance round how, like a rainbow dragon would
Pick your nose, smear on clothes, sway the way the wind blows
Now is the hour and the time we have been waiting for

VERSE 3
Breakthrough, renew, expand into the laughter
Go on, let go, this is what we’re after
Stay young, in mind, flesh and bone don’t matter
Spirit soar forever more, no need to limit here
Never grow up, your gifts will show up
If you are allowing space to appear
Nourish every moment let the channels be clear
Grab the chance, make new plans
Form a silly project with some friends
Take the show on the road, there’s no dead end
Never grow up, never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Track Name: Give It All Away
Verse 1
What do you possess, does it bring you happiness,
could you do with less, that would be my guess,
In this land of material abundance, a state of constant defendin,
reclaim your independence, stop protecting the irrelevant

Pre Chorus
Give it all away, give it all away

Chorus
Give it all away what you holding on for
Give it all away make room for more
Give it all away you don't know what's in store
Give it all away that's what it's all for

Verse 2
Possessions serve the purpose, to hang onto the worthless, if you wanna attain fierceness, you'll have to pierce this, Attachment to material, time become ethereal,
flowing like milk around cereal, give physical the burial

Chorus
Give it all away what you holding on for
Give it all away make room for more
Give it all away you don't know what's in store
Give it all away that's what it's all for
Track Name: Wake Up
Asleep somehow your bed seems so comfy
Lost in pleasure ignoring the lumpy
Stop this now your soul is screamin
Time to arise from this continuous dreamin
I got the power to break through this
I’m goin towards my true bliss
Even with the darkness and the pain
I’m ready to go at it again

Keep it, keep it movin, keep it , keep it movin, keep it keep it groovin, keep it groovin on

Keep on, keep on growin, keep on, keep on growin, keep on, keep on knowing when to move along

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up now

Cause the hour is now, no more time to wait
Sick and tired of thinking, not worth more debate
Cause the world is spinning
Nothings standing still
Energies are flowing, that’s what drives my will

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

See I was born awoken with a gift unspoken
Had to unravel this mystery of a long and distant history
I lost my way
Thoughts led me astray
In the depths I learned to rise up
To my life’s purpose and it’s been worth it


Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up


Cause the hour is now, no more time to wait
Sick and tired of thinking, not worth more debate
Cause the world is spinning
Nothings standing still
Energies are flowing, that’s what drives my will

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
