Michal Turtle - Music From The Living Room LP
Getting on Mutant Sounds territory now. As the title suggests, these are home-made recordings by a certain Michal Turtle. Experimental synth weirdness, mostly instrumental except for 'Village Voice' that has female vocals by Laura. 'Jeka' is the odd one here as it sounds more like a reggae tune.
Couldn't find much info on Michal Turtle but when submitting this release on Discogs, someone else added this release in his collection and it is no one else but Michael (real name) himself. He lives in Münchenstein, Switzerland now and is a member of Dust, together with Jessica Knoll.
This album is really hard to get probably of Shout Records folding. So I think not many copies were pressed.
