mouth music (Woebot edition)

Looking through The Big Book of Woe the other day, I reread the classic Woebot's Top 100 Records of All Time piece and realised that

1/ a good 25 %  of the list I've never heard, still.

2/ some of Matt's inclusions count as "extremism of the human voice", or at least mouth-music.


Tibetan Buddhism: Tantras of Gyütö

Centrafrique Musique Gbaya

Brigitte Fontaine - Comme A La Radio

Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux - Mandjou

Vocals incredible, obviously... but the guitar playing, phew...  the everything really....  Nearly swooned. And what a great, wavery, ghostified clip.

Flourgon & Ninjaman - "Zig It Up"
