Sounds Curious Episode 21: Audio Postcards from the Road Less Traveled
Dec 21 16
Happy Winter/Summer solstice from Sounds Curious! This week we celebrate our time out on the road, the unbridled joy of analogue and a consistently working Mellotron, and then drop a pile of unusual and unusually festive tunes to close out this monster of a year! With an entire EP by producer Christian Björklund and some classical music played on a cantankerous tape loop keyboard, this episode is suitable for festive consumption. So raise a glass to the end of 2016, and enjoy sound installation from a rainy day in Sweden – we know it’s been a long year, you deserve some pure audio candy.
