Repeaters

Doing lots of thinking about the "album" lately, probably as Mudang gears up to go in the studio. I love albums. Love them. Especially the record kind. I love to put a record on a record player and then listen to it. Never liked CDs that much. Always felt cheap. Too much plastic. Not a big plastic fan. Always seemed lame when they tried to spruce up a CD with slick packaging. Box Sets and what not.

Repeaters: samplings of those albums I listen to over and over, for whatever reason.

Andy Partridge (XTC) and Harold Budd, Through the Hill. CD, but it looks nice. Enjoyable unfolding card doohickeys inside. Petite, surprising, sometimes mysterious compositions that avoid new age nonsense. Sum is greater than the whole of its parts, but here's a sample anyway.

Through the Hill

Know what you mean. "The medium is the message," after all.
