A story about "Two Zombies Later"

by Comfort Stand

How can you not love great, free music like Two Zombies Later from the netlabel Comfort Stand. It’s a double-cd length compilation that even features artwork and instructions for printing out the artwork and assembling cds if you are so inclined. It’s all Creative Commons licensed, so you can share it with all of your cool friends. The music is drawn from discussions on the exotica mailing list and Alan Zweig says in the liner notes:

I once heard about an abandoned train station filled with records no one wanted and that image fueled a thousand waking dreams.

These recordings are obscure, loungy, and wonderful. I think that if you like that sort of thing, you’ll love listening to these songs that seem like soundtracks from films from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. They’re oddly familiar and new at the same time. I found this recording as well as Comfort Stand thanks to the CC365 project where Grant Robertson is sharing a Creative Commons track every day for the whole year. He chose “Wah Factor” which is my favourite track from this compilation.
