Episode Three: Globe Trotting

There were some problems with Itunes and the download of last week's episode. Hopefully things will go more smoothly. Streaming has not been a problem, so just go ahead with that if the downloads are acting up. This week's episode is all about psych music from around the world. There is a heavy emphasis on African and Turkish material, as that is where my interests have been lately. I push the definition of psych on this episode and include some songs that come off more ethnic. I'm sure you won't mind. Here's the playlist...

Fela Kuti (Nigeria)-"Let's Start" A-Cads (South Africa)-"Down the Road" African People (Africa)-"Stop Pushing" Orchestra Super Jheevs Des Poilletes (West Africa)-"Ye Nan Lon Nan" Ofeje (Nigeria)-"Adieu" Conjunto Night Stars (Mozambique)-"She Only Wants a Friend" Chrissy Zebby Tembo (Zambia)-"My Ancestors" Group Bombino (Niger)-"Tenere" 3 Urel (Turkey)-"Omur Biter Yol Bimez" Bunalim (Turkey) "Tas Ver Kopek Yok" Aybatti (Turkey)-"Fikret Kizliok" Erkin Koray (Turkey)-"Istemem" Dolana Dolana (Turkey)-"Mustafa Ozkent Ve" Selda (Turkey)-"Meydan Sizindir" Boris Manco (Turkey)-"Derule" The News (Lebanon)-"From the Moon" John Berberian (Armenia via NYC)-"The Oud and the Fuzz" Groupe El Azhar (Algeria)-"Mazal Nesker Mazal" Aguaturbia (Chile)-"Erotica" Os Mutantes (Brazil)-"A Minha Menina" Objectivo (Portugal)-"Gin Blues" Ernan Roch (Mexico)-"The Train" Arnaud Rodriguez (Brazil)-"Murituri" Illes (Hungary)-"Nem Erdekel Amit Mondsz" November (Sweden)-"Mount Everest" Råg I Ryggen (Sweden)-"Det Kan Val Inte Vara Farligt" Czerwone Gitary (Poland)-"Coda" Sinn Sisamouth (Cambodia)-"Maxy Maxy" Teddy Robin & the Playboys (Hong Kong)-"Magic Colours" Confusions (Japan)-"Voice from the Inner Soul" Samouth & Sothea (Cambodia)- "Have a Caramel"

Sound quality is getting better. We have filters on our transmitter that prevent volume boosts from going out over the air. Those filters don't do the same for the podcast, so there are a couple of song beginnings that will sound a bit loud. If you're looking for some distros that carry these and related titles, check out Aquarius, Weirdo, Forced Exposure, and Bomp. I've used all of these sites. Excellent service. Highly recommended!!
