Episode 39: Wilmoth Houdini

We discovered Wilmoth Houdini way back in episode seven! Calypso music recorded in the 1930s.

"Bobby Sox Idol" by Wilmoth Houdini

"Frankie Sinatra" by The Avalanches

Episode 7: Wildflower by the Avalanches

This is our first time featuring a review of a new release on the podcast! As lovers of old funky records, we have mad respect for the Avalanches whose love of music is obvious in their ability to scout out only the most awesome bits of obscure music and show it off in groovy new compositions. Even if you think you're not into electronic music, we bet you'll dig the psychedelic feel of Wildflower.

Wildflower and all its inner goodies.

Subways by the Avalanches. The original sample by Chandra Oppenheim is easily reconizable but there's no doubt that it's a brand new song!

Everything is a Remix: A documentary about sampling and innovation.

Sometimes I wish I could unheard the Amen Break, so watch at your own risk. You'll hear it everywhere and realize how much this sample is used..
