Way back in WFMU’s blog is an album that continues to dazzle me, Yann Tomita’s Doopee Time. Sez Station Manager Ken:
Here’s a strange and wonderful record called Doopee Time by the Japanese composer and experimentalist Yann Tomita. Trying to describe this record (or Tomita) is difficult – part muzak, part dada comedy, part I Dream of Jeannie, with a running commentary by The Doopees, two Japanese doll women named Suzie and Caroline.
All the Doopee mp3s are up at WFMU; here’s a few of my faves:
“Air By Bus” (4:15 mp3):
“Caroline Cries to Chopin Opus 28 No 4” (1:57 mp3):
“What’s The Time?” (0:33 mp3):
