Tonight’s mix is:
- Akira Ishikawa – Africa Rock (1971)
- Cartoons, various
This is one of those great moments where if you play enough obscure stuff on Youtube, Youtube will introduce you to an absolute treasure trove of more obscure stuff. Yesterday I didn’t know these things didn’t exist, and now I know they do.
I can find very little to no information about Akira Ishikawa’s “Africa Rock” album from 1971 (play it at .75). I like it that way. Everything about this is magnificent especially at slower speeds. The cartoons are not childish as much as they are drowning in weird (play them at .75). At this speed, you’ve got over an hour of seeking answers to the universe through animated jazz.
