musique non-stop, afropop
Fela Kuti & The Africa '70 - Open/Close and Afrodisiac (lala) You can clean a room to some Fela. I set mini-goals like I will keep picking up trash until this song is over because otherwise you can pick up trash forever, a room generates trash at a rate pproportional to your efforts, Not that we have a messy house by most standards, it just bears the patina of people living their lives in it. With Fela going, though, that song lasts a good 15-20 minutes, a bracket in which you can get some shit done.
The Necks - Mosquito These Australian jazz/rock/minimalists/purveyors of very long trance instrumental tracks usually fall into the same thinking space as Fela, but this record just sent me running back to the source.
Kraftwerk - Electric Cafe (lala) This played just long enough for me to come up with the post title.
