Go Buy “Mickey Mouse Operation” Already

“Mickey Mouse Operation” by “Little People” is sitting high on my list of favorite CDs at the moment. Thanks to Pandora, I got to hear several of these songs before purchasing the full album (hooray for Pandora!). This was a great find for anyone who appreciates smooth instrumentals mixed with their electronic music. I cannot stress enough how much I love this album.

If you’re not convinced, notice the price. $5.99 for 14 songs! That is a deal that you should jump on.

He is going on tour in the USA at some point, and a new album should be hitting in 2011, so keep your eye out for that if you’re already a fan.
