Music binge...

So I just ordered more CDs than I probably should have, but...

To replace tapes:
Little Feat: Representing the Mambo
Weird-ass southern rockaboogie. "Texas Twister" gets the down'n'dirty, "Representing the Mambo" gets the weird-ass...

The Creatures: Boomerang
Strange, science-fictiony percussion-driven songs á la Budgie and Siouxsie Sioux. I absolutely adore "Pluto Drive"

...and the geeky bit:
It's only a small leap from The Creatures to the multi-layered, sometimes calm, sometimes frenetic music of Gamelan. Back in high school I taped a bunch of Balinese Gamelan records, but alas those tapes are long lost, and even if they weren't I don't listen to tapes anymore.

Nonesuch Records has been re-releasing the Explorer Series of ethnic music on CD. Just ordered a stack of Explorer Series Bali and Java recordings. The Explorer series started as an interesting experiment; packaging and selling anthropological field recordings of native music, and Bali: Music from the Morning World was their first release.
