Got Twink?

Like it or not, we are well into the age of digitally enhanced music.  There is no escape & resistance is futile.  Our only defense is to sort through the truly awful with great speed & alacrity.  But every now & then, you come across a little gem of digital virtuosity.  Such is the case with, “The Broken Record” (21 musical novelties), by Twink, the toy piano band!  Actually, Twink is the brainchild of Mike Langlie.  ”The Broken Record” CD is hundreds of fragments of sound taken from hundreds of vintage children’s records all mixed together with new sound elements from Mr. Langlie.  The result will delight any child’s natural sense of fun while keeping an adult ear curious with its complexity, density & overlap of sound.  True, listening to this album is akin to drinking a highly caffeinated beverage, but I say, hats off to Twink, for using digital techniques to create a sonic work of art that puts a smile on your face.
