Insect Electronica from Southeast Asia
(Sublime Frequencies) Used CD $10.00 (Out-of-stock)
A tribute to swarms of male dragonflies of Southeast Asia that during mating join in choruses of high-pitched tones to court their mates — the ones that don't succeed in finding a mate eventually scream so loud their chests explode and they drop dead to the ground (kind of like emo-core bands). Recorded live and unprocessed by Tucker Martine in Laos, Thailand and Burma, Brokenhearted Dragonflies features field recordings of droning cicadas, dragonflies and other insects that create a tropical hallucination of strange symphonies and alien sounds. Liner notes by Hakim Bey.
