Ping Pong Peng!

Boy O boy do you have to hear this lovely track by one of my favorite groops(get it?) Stereolab.

This track is on a compilation 'Dimension Mix', a tribute to the eclectic dimension 5 records. Mudra is a cover of a song by Bruce Haack, a great canadian synth guru from the seventies(if you haven't heard him yr a baby). Full of jazz driven syncopation, the analog synths wiggle back and forth from speaker to speaker(ping pong) that make you dizzy in the best of senses. Some of the best panning play you can find. Soo crazy that it would be impossible to have the same mix shown above pressed on vinyl(the panning in the song is soo intense that the physical grooves needed to be made in the vinyl would make the needle jump and cause skipping in the track). Make sure you listen with headphones or make sure you keep them ears pointed at each speaker, you don't wanna miss it.
