A couple of songs I want to remember I like.
“Jaltarang” is an old record by Ramrao Parsatwar. The jaltarang is a percussion instrument consisting of bowls partially filled with water. This comes to me via radiooooo, which I heartily recommend.
Something about this instrumental reminds me of EEK’s amazing “Trinity,” — I don’t know what to say about this one except it comes from Egypt and it sounds kind of like video game music but from a video game too fun to humanly play.
But as you know I mostly listen to square Anglophone guitar-based indie so here’s a gem in that vein, “Waste the Alphabet,” by Dick Diver, like the EEK track a 2015 release. Vocals a little like John Vanderslice, bass that sounds like Athens, GA in 1982, sort of New Zealandy guitar (this is actually from Australia.) Hits all my spots.
