Small Mammal With Whom I Live A Lie: Transmission 53, 2013 August 14

sounddafrique.jpegWe travel far and wide, and sometimes use magic, to bring you the best tunes here at Bombast. This week we feature Sound d'Afrique, one from the vaults, "literally"--as well as some internet treasures and illicit gems. Things turned out to be less musically "weird" than emotionally so. I just can't work up any feelings about the experience--I couldn't when it was happening, and I can't now! "Shallowness of affect," I'm telling you. There is this Kids in the Hall monologue / short in which Bruce McCulloch talks about "a dog for whom I feel nothing." To me this show is that dog. But it is a really cute dog, you guys:

Maybe someday this program and I will have a moment. That'd be nice! I'm not up to it right now. I'm just having a week. The music is good, though; I wouldn't lie to you about that. That Toiling Midgets bandcamp site is something everyone should visit, as is the Osaka Music Concern soundcloud. [thx Brian!] Finally, the "other" b-side of The Julia Sound's new single is available here. Apparently they are trying to set up a show in Ithaca--again, that'd be nice! As for A.R.Kane, whose song TJS covers, they will have their moment, sooner or later.
