Soshu Night Serenade

Some media check notes: Recently, I've been listening to a lot of nature recordings. There's one from Sounds of the Earth called "Deep Into The Earth" which was made in a stalactite cave and consists of one hour straight of cavernous dripping noises. Somehow it makes me feel good. I've also found to my surprise that I like Martin Denny's "Exotica" rather well. It's an odd monster: a bar band playing pseudo-ethnic lounge music should be a godawful proposition, yet somehow, I don't know, somehow there is something to it... In the rap department, I finally ordered some Grandmaster Flash from my public library. "The Message" is absolutely awesome, the definitive rap song if there ever was one. I feel like floating debris when I hear it, dirty but almost weightless. However, the bragging tone of most Grandmaster stuff gets on my nerves pretty soon.
