Editor's note: imagine an electronic harp in a box with a metal disc record dictating the music. I guess you don't have to because that's what this is more or less. The pre-record player. Except that this seems more generic in sound. Kind of like a midi version of a live performance. Is there really anything else to say? Oh yeah...The Hackers. No viruses here just songs to warm your ears by and sharpen your zzzz's.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
