SOUNDS UNUSUAL transmits an hour of Musical Mayhem, Audacious Audio Cataclysms, Xperi-mental Electronic Endeavors and Excretions - the Bold and the Boring. New Age for Abominable Snowmen. The Bark & Bite of the Tree of Knowledge. Unlistenable to 'Normals'. In other words: new and vintage recordings that lean toward the bizarre, odd, noisy, loungey, psychedelic, poetic or pathetic. An hour of some of the strangest stuff we can get our hands on are featured as well as our own sound collages created in the studios of KRVS.
