[Video] Mickey Hart / Diga Rhythm Band – Razooli (Studio Version)

Mickey Hart made his fame as a drummer for the Grateful Dead, whom I enjoyed greatly (at least in their live settings). He was also a big fan of Indian music, and really did a lot with his Diga Rhythm Band project to promote it. In this track, it sounds like exotica, innovative Latin percussion, and a touch of India deep inside.

He is joined in this track by Indian tabla player Zakir Hussain.

[Sample] Das Mädchen von Hongkong O.S.T.

I can’t get enough of cheese-ball Euro-trash soundtracks, so coming across a gem like this on Bandcamp made my day! It’s for Das Mädchen von Hongkong, a film from 1973, and Black Pearl Records deserves all credit for hipping the world to this digital album.

Rod McKuen, mega-selling poet and performer, dies at 81

Sure, people thought he was corny, and some of his poems were a bit… well… difficult to read without either giggling or smirking on occasion. But those albums of his… Truly masterful easy listening.

RIP, Rod McKuen. News on his passing can be read here, courtesy of Yahoo!

[Podcast] PMB158: Outer Realms

PMB158: Outer Realms by Project Moonbase on Mixcloud

Mixcloud, by itself, is proving to be a wonderful tool with little treasures worth sharing. One of my favorite recent podcasts comes from the United Kingdom is Project Moonbase, where DJ Bongoboy and MC Zirconium play some of the corniest, cheesiest and charming lounge, sci-fi, exotica and other sundry novelties.
