Buzz buzz. This album is about bugs. Very timely because it's been a nice sunny day today after the longest winter ever, and I can just feel the flora and fauna murmuring. No bees yet but soon they will be flying all over. I'm inspired by these amazing bee related photos over on even*cleveland.
Anyway the clinical looking pink vinyl oddity above is an Italian record from the 70s. It's a TV/film soundtrack full of wobbly avant garde abstractions conjuring up wasps and bees and insect-borne sickness (there is actually a song called "Malaria"). One of a series of addictive color-coded LPs devoted to marine life and biology and landscape and the like (another one can be found here). Some lovely electronic "beehive" incidentals.
