This is not the chipmuks is it... c'mon! Who is this!
Avatar 1:30am

At my work we've been into listening to slowed down versions of songs off youtube lately. Hall and Oates I can't Go For That is one of the best
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31am

nope, really the chipmunks! alvin.wikia.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31am

i will load Audacity just for that....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32am

still don't believe that the enunciation here is possible at chipmunk speed....
Avatar 1:33am

it's because it was recorded at that speed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33am

recorded at 16 and sped up?
Avatar 1:33am

You Just Keep Me Hanging On is my favorite of those slowed down Chipmunks. It sounds like their hearts are being torn out of their chests...

There is a slowed music for airports. Lovely
Avatar 1:37am

that's the link to the slowed down Chipmunks on soundcloud. I guess it's maybe by someone different than slowed down the one Jesse played?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am

that is some tragic chipmunks....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51am

i still call shenanigans for the chipmunks reference. The sounds are spectacular, but I think the album title is clickbait, and it worked!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52am

is bennik far behind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54am

i mean, it's definitely on this LP:

and this guy claims responsibility:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00am

i always assumed the chipmunks was music recorded at regular speed > slowed down so singers can sing the song to it, slowly and with an abnormal amount of enunciation > then sped-up again.
then i figured maybe with newer digital technology they just sang it to the music and it was put through a process to make it sound like shit, er, i mean "chipmunks.
...i've never researched it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03am

well Bagdasarian checks out... He is on the credits for the movie. It is almost like a message to the future

hey future 16 is the best speed to play it at.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04am

and cole, yes, I have listened at regular speed and it is .... well,, not like it is at half speed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12am

heh, that article is funny... Brian Borcherdt said the idea was simmering in the back of his mind for a long time.
... i wanted to play a chipmunks record at a slower speed when i was a kid of maybe 6, but my mother wouldn't allow chipmunks records in the house. i'm sure many many people have done it.
(we also had an rca suitcase stereo record player with 4 speeds; so either a 45 at 33, or a 33 at 16)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14am

@cole that is awesome, both that you had parents with taste and a cool sound tools.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21am

haha! the only reason i remember it was stereo is because when i was about 10 i asked for "through the past, darkly" for xmas and honky tonk woman had no guitar solo, just horns in the middle; and she's a rainbow & 2000 light years from home had no lead vox. i was to discover that it picked up only one channel and sent it to both speakers. i thought it was a remix of ht woman and, being unfamiliar with the other 2 songs thought they were instrumentals.
Avatar 2:23am

this is the 3rd night in a row I've heard the Crazy Doberman record on FMU. (Not complaining, it's great). First time hearing Dark Star played over it I think? Sounds cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am

bird song, heh. and yea, that LP has WFMU written all over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29am

Jesse, as in the case of henry andersen a few weeks ago, knows when a record needs some help.
- i'd be happy to hear crazy doberman by itself but it's good to hear it mashed up as well.

not sure i discovered the fugs recording, precisely, but definitely made a point of tracking down a digital version & getting it back into circulation.
