Local noise and sample art. FCC clean. Picks 3,9,5,1,4

*1-2:16) Whimsical, weird. Very short loop of Alfred Hitchcock strings, great vocal sample, and puttering noises.
2-8:12) Buzz. Bee swarm tones that slowly evolve. Deranged matching human vocal sounds become more prevalent. Long fade out.
**3-5:23) Great splicing together of bumbling Bush samples into one evil, fascist whole. Not as over the top as Porest. Over aggressive, dark goth electro beat. It works. Fadeout.
*4-7:54) Acoustic guitar loop over synth pads and washes which build and fade. For Boards of Canada fans? Ends dreamy and quiet.
*5-7:15) Clip of a senator from a NE state standing up to a two-faced FCC representative on behalf of the people. There is eh-eh background music.
6-6:09) Quiet. A faintly snoring beast and a creaky door. Second half is faint rumbly tones and a ringing synth. Fadeout.
7-1:37) Chittery synth. Bell tone clusters. Last 8 sec. silence.
8-27:16) Ambience. String synths. Washes, rises and falls. Aquarium music. Mildly dark, but at times shimmery. Develops pulse towards end. Long fadeout.
**9-5:50) How nice of them! Almost the same vocal track as track 3 but without the music underneath.
