This might be the best 5 bucks you ever spent. FLOCCINAUCHINIHILIPILIFICATION
- (the habit of deeming things as worthless) is a compilation
of DIY musicians from around the world that Cumbersome Records
has collected in its musical butterfly net, and I think they have
a pretty damn good ear for innovative and original music.
I don't really care for electronica, but Dr Robotnik's
"The Boogie Song" is nearly perfect in its realization
of electronica that actually feels
electronic. The Seedy
Three's "Scru Hoo" is so infectious it will get
just about anybody to get down and get funky. Pink Stainless
Steel's "Blood Sugar Dropping" is the anthem for
sugar junkies (like me) throughout the world. Because of Ghosts'
"Prun Sunk" revives the prog rock instrumental ala The
Alan Parsons Project, and could easily have found its place
amongst any of their early, great albums of the late '70s. Laakso's
"Clear" could be a desperate and edgier Bob Dylan,
a little drunk and a lot auspicious. Bohjass Upas Militia
has created a scary kind of musical, jazz-punk armageddon with
their "Where's Tyrone" that drags on a bit too long,
but initially makes for some very angst-filled uneasy-listenin'.
The above were my favorites, but the rest of the album is definitely
worth a few spins too, and will undoubtedly expose you to the
sort of music you aren't likely to hear elsewhere. This album
is a "punctuated equilibria" of musical evolution. Now,
put THAT in your Funk & Wagnall's.
