There are aliens on the way: Kallikak Family
Who? Kallikak Family
What? Field recordings, noise, sound experiments
Sounds like? abstract sounds, containing not that much melody. think of abstract elektronica
Ok, Kallikak Family is a band that is hard to blog about, but they seem to be the best band to link to something else i want to tell about, which is funny or exciting in a way.
Apparently, we’re close to some extremely huge change on our planet. Next to the financial crisis, and the feeling that we’re al really getting crazy here (that’s at least the feeling i’m having, that we’re all running in some sort of extreme overdrive), on 14th of October, the aliens will come and help us!
Some medium, Blossom Goodchild, has been receiving messages from an extraterrestial race that calls themselves the federation of light. They told her that on the 14th october, their spaceship will appear in our skies, more precisely over Alabama, and will be staying there for 3 days. They DON’t want to take over, but are here to send us love and positive energy.
Me, as a sort of hippie (sort of), can’t be negative about aliens bringing peace and happiness, so let’s welcome them. I don’t believe this, but i’m curious of course. The Original message you can see in the youtube-link underneath. Fascinating, to say the least. (one question: why the arab music? all the neocons are now thinking it’s muslim propaganda)
What has this got to do with Kallikak Family? Well, this one-man band released an album in 2006, which was called “May 23d, 2007”, the day the artist believed he would die because a fortune teller told him so. His MySpace is still active, so the guy is probably still alive. Let’s hope that the medium wasn’t Blossom. Next to that, the concept album is a really great collection of abstract sound-experimental songs.
