Black Market Karma and Tess Parks collaborated to write “The Sky Was All Diseased,” which is the Flawless Friday Video for the week. I like the feeling of nostalgia and traveling that is captured in the video.
Stanley Belton of Black Market Karma says, “I’d had the groove and music to this song floating around in my brain for a while, but had no lyrics or vocal part. I happened to play it one time we were at the studio together and I drop into my own world when I’m making things up, but after a while I noticed Tess out of the corner of my eye scribbling down lyrics. She started humming a melody to herself and I loved what she was doing so we went with it. I added in one more verse with a different vocal melody and a few lines at the end of the song and there it was – ‘The Sky Was All Diseased.’ I laid the music down a few days later and recorded Tess’ vocals which became the track as you hear it now.”
As of November 2, ‘The Sky Was All Diseased’ from Black Market Karma and Tess Parks will be available everywhere digitally, including Apple Music, Spotify, and Bandcamp. The full ‘Friends In Noise’ album (out January 13) can be ordered on 180-gram colored vinyl from the label, as can their latest ‘Aped Flair & Hijacked Ideas’ LP.

A long, rather unusual song, but I like it!
