Your Memorial Day Vocoder Mix

Have you invited robots to your Memorial Day barbecue and would you like to impress them with a futuristic soundtrack? Dave Tompkins, author of How to Wreck a Nice Beach (see Sam Anderson's review here), a history of the vocoder — the book's title is what the phrase "how to recognize speech" sounds like through a vocoder — just posted a delightful hour-long summer mix of vocoder-featuring jams. Enjoy!
