Music for Supermarkets!December 18, 2012
Well, keeping up with the X-Mas spirit, here’s a nice little album a friend on Facebook hepped me to: Music for Supermarkets! Not to be mistaken with French synth-composer Jean-Michel Jarre‘s album with the same name, this retro 13-track compilation culls the “best” of 50s and 60s muzak produced only to increase sales in the supermarkets of yore.
With titles like Bargains Galore and Window Gazing this is cheese at its best – or is “kitschy consumerism” a genre? – and even though I had a hard time finding physical copies (having me guessing it’s a semi-legit release), there are downloads available for those who don’t mind doing a bit of googling, plus this nice playlist on YouTube.
