Vladimir Ussachevsky Sonic Contours Pioneers of Electronic Music New World Records collection of modern compositions from the Columbia-Princeton Music Center; this track is from 1952 and features a sped-up portion of a conversation between Ussachevsky and his wife; distortion is already there. This made it to my favorite compilations of 2006 *
Scott Walker Cossacks Are The Drift 4AD VERY MUCH one of my TOP 10 of 2006! Brilliant, weird, amazing and epic, unforgettable achievement from an 60's ex-pop star who refuses to become irrelevant
Matmos Roses and Teeth for Ludwig Wittgenstein The Rose Has Teeth In the Mouth of the Beast Matador Electronic/experimental duo Matmos made an album in tribute to gay icons as their 2006 offering. Each track is inspired by a different gay icon in history. Not unlike other Matmos albums, they use things like snails in their compositions.
