Olaf’s Song of the Day:
Abyssinian Creole | Same As I Ever Was | Sexy Beast
Friends, talented musicians, and dedicated community activists, educators and youth workers, Khalil and Gabe united as Abyssinian Creole and put out their album Sexy Beast (a coffee reference) in 2005. Six years later, this album marks an important point in my history, having recently graduated from WSU and moving to Seattle—and everything that comes along with working, socializing, and organizing in a new city. Sexy beast is a time marker for me.
As I listened to “Same As I Ever Was” tonight, I knew I had to share it. While I’m still the same me as I was six years ago, so much has changed both in my own life and the world at large. As life moves forward, I’m happy to have songs like this provide the soundtrack for the future.
