Tribal drums give way to an ominous, warping synth, ambient feel and a boom-bap friendly kick and snare on A Tribe Called Red's indigenous and politicized (plus free-to-download) Thanksgiving anthem "Burn Your Village To The Ground." The track's title is a direct homage to the vocal sample in the track, taken from Christina Ricci's performance as Wednesday Addams in 1993's Addams Family Values. Though taken from a comedic source, the track's swing into more hardstyle rhythms at its close certainly keeps the track heavy and sinister, yet still worthy of a weekend spin.
Regarding the track A Tribe Called Red have stated the following:
On this fourth Thursday of November, you might ask yourself: do Indians celebrate Thanksgiving? Well… Thanksgiving is a complicated holiday for Native people. In a way, each day is a day of thanksgiving to the Creator for the original people of Turtle Island. This doesn't mean that we don't enjoy turkey, pie and family as much as the next person, but at the same time the Thanksgiving myth largely shared in mainstream culture perpetuates a one sided view of a complicated history surrounding this holiday. Here’s an informed indigenous view on Thanksgiving: http://blog.nmai.si.edu/main/2013/11/do-indians-celebrate-thanksgiving.html
This doesn’t prevent us from “celebrating” in our own way by giving you a new song called Burn Your Village To The Ground.
