As promised last week, here is the second installment in Keith Lo Bue's Phonoanomalies series, 32 MP3 tracks and artwork below, or alternatively a Torrent of the whole thing in FLAC for the real audiophiles. If you don't yet have a Christmas present for your parakeet, THIS IS IT! And no, I am not kidding, we really care about the parakeets of the world here at WFMU, and they should get their presents, too. But humans, canaries, computers, and Zoroastrian physicians will also have fun with this compilation, because it features music by humans, canaries, a computer, and a Zoroastrian physician, the one and only Dr. Adi Tamboli. Of course, there is yodeling, whistling, and prepared pianos, too. And this compilation doesn't shy away from serious issues either, there are two Mike Curb tracks from the soundtrack to the shocking documentary about today's youth, Teenage Rebellion, and a song about the dangers of arcade games. Kids beware, playing Pac-Man, Asteroids, and Galaga will drive you crazy. You should rather listen to these tracks now. Where are they? As always, below the jump.

More info on sources and recording dates is here. Tracks run into each other, so you should burn all of them onto a little silver disk. How do you tell it apart from all the others littering your apartment? By Keith's wonderful artwork, of course: CD label | | Cover Booklet and Tray. If the words BitTorrent and FLAC are familiar to you and you missed it the first time, here is a Torrent file for the whole shebang in super-high fidelity, including artwork. I have already thanked lots of people in last week's post, so I won't repeat it here.
Next week I will hopefully bring you the third and final part of this series, but I am going to be on the road, and I don't know if they have already discovered the Internet in Germany yet. I'll have my homing pigeon with me, though, just in case.
