In 1992, David Carson and The Little Wolf Band released Medicine Songs, an album of atmospheric New Age folk and spoken-word songs. For the closer, Carson’s nephew (and the album's producer & keyboardist) Jim Wilson recorded crickets chirping in the backyard one night, then duplicated the recording and slowed one layer down by several octaves. Perhaps surprisingly, the result is a melodic, ghostly choral sound. The isolated recording has been on SoundCloud for six years and streamed a thousand billion times; enter Jonny Trunk to bring us a vinyl version at last.
