Both of these are damn good tracks, particularly since they're real reinterpretations of the originals. My first thought on hearing "Friction" was Raymond Scott, but I've been thinking a lot about his stuff lately. (Maybe the first composer to work in sound blocks. And everyone's heard "Powerhouse.")

I'm digging the two "Guiding Light"s, as well. The LH definitely has a cool vibe going (sounded fine to me, btw), and Chris Chapple's version is a great pleasure--particularly in the way it starts out totally simple and unassuming, and then slowly builds into something grand. Well done, Chris, and the Lounge Hounds, too.
