Broadcasting every now and again since 2004 The Wonderfulsound Libraries…. an irregular mix of music taken from the libraries of Wonderfulsound and occasionally featuring the odd guest.
The Wonderfulsound LIbraries returns with its annual seasonal mix of sound, music & song that for whatever reason.. Sounds Like Christmas Featuring The Superimposers, Yoko Ono, The Monks Kitchen, Peggy Lee, Dylan Thomas, The Space Lady and a couple of school choirs..
The Superimposers “Christmas Again!”
Shawn Lee, the hardest working man in the music business, was recently approached to provide some music for a zombie computer video game. So in typical Shawn Lee fashion he wrote a whole lp!
Shawn then approached Wonderfulsound asking if we wanted to release “Zombie Playground” on limited audio cassette tape in time for halloween. Why not!

"Music From The Monks Kitchen" by The Monks Kitchen released 18th October 2013 PRE ORDER
The Monks Kitchen return after a 6 year hiatus with a full length Long Player on Wonderfulsound.
To introduce you back into the world of The Monks, Wonderfulsound has released a 7” record of The Monks Kitchens dusty lo-fi cover version of Sam Cooke’s RnB standard “Shake” LISTEN/BUY
In 2007 The Monks Kitchen released a debut mini LP on James (Libertines/The Strokes) Endicott’s new venture 1965 Records.
6 Years later the well weathered hermit-like melancholic trio return with an LP of 18 songs recorded in attics, lofts and borrowed vintage analogue equipment. Some recordings can be traced back to 12 years previous others, just 2 months ago.
There’s poetry, harmony, soundscapes, twelve strings, autoharps, pianos, xylopjones and a distinct lack of choruses. And with no clear lead singer & half the tracks instrumental the only tangible thread is that there’s no clue what form of conjured beauty or dark rambling will follow.
Make no mistake “Music From…” is a record that tells a subtle strange story that requires full sonic immersion.
The Monks Kitchen “Shake”
New Single Out Now.
While The Wonderfulsound Libraries compiles a new mix… this Autumnal special from last year seems to sound as fresh as when it was first broadcast.. Molly Drake, Colorama, Penguin Cafe orchestra, Ariel Pink, Simon Lord all feature plus a personal memory of NYC.
