Super-avant-garde-background-music press release writers sure do come up with some creative genre names. And though I'm not gonna claim I can hum many of the lovely selections below from memory, in the wee small hours, when the beer's wearing off or the coffee hasn't kicked in yet, they all make perfect sense. Excellent for flu season, to boot! And isn't it cool how so many of the wackiest ones come from guys whose last names start with K? What's up with that?
