Stay with me on this one, it requires a very open mind. Well, unless you’re a fan of extremely eclectic, improvisational music.
Le Truc Ensemble – Beding! Bedang!
Before listening to this album, I expected to hear some funny stuff along the lines of Radio Radio. Not so; in fact I don’t think it could get any further from Radio Radio. Beding! Bedang! consists of what I picture to be a group of guys just having some fun with various musical instruments – mostly drums, guitars, and a saxaphone. No vocals, just pure instrumental improv.
In places it sounds messy and disorganized, but I think that’s the point here. You should definitely not expect anything remotely close to a clean sound.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t really too hyped up about this thing after listening to it. I could definitely see myself putting this on in the background while working on something at home, but I found it to be distracting while at work. I definitely wouldn’t put this on in the car (though it might serve a purpose to keep you awake on a long haul).
