Yes, it’s true: with last week’s post only barely forgotten, we are proud to present yet another artifact of questionable musical content. This time, we bring you the long-unheard and longer-ignored E.P. from Los Angeles instrumental unknowns Sarisataka (previously introduced here with the “Frisbee Detector” track from the “The Good Life Most Will Never Find” compilation).

This E.P. chronicles the band’s “pink” period (as the music clearly demonstrates). Sarisataka describes their compositional style as “blind sonic macrosculpture”, using randomly selected keyboard tones, carelessly chosen thrift-store record albums, and reinterpreted found sounds created by accident/surprise to achieve a set of compositions that can only be described as “somewhat listenable”and “occasionally coherent”. Recommended for fans of The Eagles and Whitney Houston!
