Weird, but good. Music from the Exotica Mailing List

Two Zombies Later... "Strange and unusual music from the Exotica Mailing List". Featuring Br. Cleve & His Lush Orchestra playing "Shaken Not Stirred", not to mention the mad stylings of Scotch & Soda covering Herb Albert's lovely "Lonely Bull" — with a tuba and optigan. I'd think "college radio" if it weren't so damn good. And I would probably not post it if the kind folks at Comfort Stand records hadn't been so kind as to have served up the entire two CD collection via lo-fi MP3s — a definite find. : ) [Via GoodExperience]

Cool. I'm downloading now. Those guys must have some amazing net connection, I'm maxing out my DSL.

Oh, and don't be put off by the phrase "lo-fi MP3s." They're 192kbps, hardly what I would call "lo-fi."

I apologize. I assumed the tracks were lo-fi, because I couldn't imagine putting up anything other than that... but you're right, they're great quality.

Can anyone see a way to buy the CDs? Or is it really a DIY job, supported by donations?

These are fabulous -- I've been listening to them for about a month, and tripping out on the sweetness of it all.

fantastic! silusGROK, I don't even see a way to donate, although the Internet Archive which is supplying the bandwith for downloads will take donations here via Amazon.

Hey TimeFactor... you can call me Silus.

: )

The PayPal donation link is on the home page (scroll to the bottom).

And Katemonkey... thanks for not sharing the love — it's so rare that I find something link-worthy!
