Smashin’ Transistors 71: Orchestrations of Night Bugs

August 1st, 2020

In the wilds of Michigan’s Thumb, the sounds of the night bugs were mostly crickets. In my new surroundings of North Carolina’s Triangle, there are crickets as well but also many katydids. And for an added attraction right now, we got the cicadas too.  There are a lot of trees surround the digs I dwell. Hearing all of the night bugs going on at once here is a three drone band bill where they are doing some sort of concept set about spaceships landing in a lush green forest.

Though I did not record this episode outside to capture some of those sounds, I seriously did consider it. Perhaps I even will some time down the road.
