This album is filled with warm. Both subdued and inviting, this album curls around your ears and inside your head. "dead leaf bug" incorporates inventively modified elements of Balinese Gamelan music (which sounds slightly like a xylophone, but warmer), poetry, acoustic guitar, sitar, Indian flute, and many other sounds. There are two sitar pieces, one accompanied on a tabla-like drum, the other is solo sitar. The fourth piece is very soothing and may calm the listener to sleep. "give large puppies sweet loud kiss" interweaves off-kilter African-sounding percussion, reversed acoustic guitar, and playful meditative voices in various languages.
Shipping is expensive. Especially overseas. For U.S./Canada orders we include shipping/handling, and for overseas orders we ask that you add the $10 shipping fee to the items you choose to purchase. It works best to order more than one item if you are ordering from overseas.
