|September 22, 2012 | Found Sounds, Songoftheday
Today was an all-Asian day. I went to the record store ( it’d been a while ) where I got a cassette called Black Plastic Singing Flats Vol.II ( I was a big fan of the first one ), and then I went out to the Vietnamese market and bought all kinds of weird stuff that you can only get at Asian markets, and then I came home and made noodles and stir-fried big fuck-off chunks of ginger and garlic and red peppers, and then, while I was making Vietnamese coffee, I played the tape. This song is the only one on the compilation that’s sung in English, but it has a perfect 1960s radio sound that really grabbed me. If I could go to a 45-years-ago Singapore nightclub tonight, I would.
