I wonder if when you jump the Andersens' bones they make little cooing sounds and fluttery moans.
Prepared Landscapes came out in early 2005, self-released on their own label, but it wasn't until the holiday lull in new CDs that I got around to ordering it. Well, actually, it wasn't until this month that I actually found an online vendor that I could buy it from.
Andersens make lo-fi easy listening psychedelia as if it were a religious rite - they're kind of like The Carpenters playing in front of an ancient shrine in long flowing robes after a short dose of acid. They make great music for watching snow fall and steam rise from the grates of the city.
"Bacharach" - Andersens (Burt Bacharach is or was very big in Japan - give this song at least two listens before making up your mind on it.)
"Walk On By" - Dionne Warwick (Groovemaster mix)
- Stream more Andersens at Myspace
- Das Gemeine is a great find for Japanese underground stuff you can't find anywhere else. I've got some more Jap U-pop to unload here over the next few days.

- Ain't he cool? Here's some Bacharach tour dates...
SAVED ROUNDS: “CEASE FIRE-UNLOAD. REMAIN IN POSITION UNTIL THE LINE IS CLEARED. ARE THERE ALIBIS OR SAVED ROUNDS ON THE RIGHT? ALIBIS OR SAVED ROUNDS ON THE LEFT?”
Some great music found at MP3 blogs in recent days...
