Penguin Cafe Orchestra

Posted by Beamer

Spring is here! The sun is out, the parks are full of people. Put your shorts and windbreakers on.

Penguin Cafe Orchestra, founded in 1972 by classical musician and composer Simon Jeffes, is the epitome of springtime, and nothing short of pure class. Their first album was produced and released by Eno under his “Obscure” label.

Here’s a track from each of their first four albums. Enjoy.

Penguin Cafe Single sounds so damn familiar, but as far as I can tell it hasn’t been used in anything I’ve seen in film or television.

Gosh, I must have encountered it somewhere though. Or maybe it’s the most immediate composition ever.

This was posted a few days ago, deleted, and posted again a few days later. Not really sure why, but that might be where you heard it, Justin.
