Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Completely obsessed with this album, can't say enough good things about it

Yolanda is 17 at the time of this recording. so wonderful
Avatar 7:07pm Flash Strap:

what a performance, what a band
Avatar 7:09pm Flash Strap:

these vocals are so wild, truly a revelatory sound
Avatar 7:14pm Flash Strap:

was listening to Puro Tayta Shanti with a friend of mine, just really going nuts listening to it on new years eve, and he pointed out that the relentlessness of the drum was reminiscent of some of Faust's work, this track in particular
Avatar 7:29pm Flash Strap:

one of my favorite Hudson productions
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm WR:

Those Andean / Peruvian cuts were all great. Disappointed they don't have PDF notes available with digital purchase.
Avatar 7:38pm Flash Strap:

ah I hate when that happens, I always want to read the notes. I just ended up loving what I heard so much that I bought the LP and was pleasantly surprised to be met with a notes insert
Avatar 7:38pm Flash Strap:

also: hello WR!
Avatar 7:40pm Flash Strap:

this will always be one of my favorite Mingus records. really need to play more of him this year

hi melinda!

There's a Mingus among us (Love Mingus!)

No mistaking Rota for anyone else!
Avatar 7:47pm Flash Strap:

no kidding, James! what a maestro
Avatar 7:47pm Flash Strap:

lots of days where this soundtrack seems to follow me wherever I go
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm listener james from westwood:

Doug uses a Rota track for bed music that I find myself whistling on occasion.
Avatar 7:48pm Flash Strap:

simply one of the best, most enveloping soundtracks of all time, this
Avatar 7:49pm Flash Strap:

ah yes, I believe it's "The Clowns"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm melinda:

This evening I got a notice that I'm in default on a credit card that hasn't sent me a bill in 3 months. I lost track of things when I moved but the sum they are telling me I owe seems way too high since I seldom use this card, and I have to wait until tomorrow to call them, ugh!
Avatar 7:54pm Flash Strap:

ugh that suuuuuuucks
Avatar 8:02pm Flash Strap:

this is such a bizarre album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Doug Schulkind:

Oh how I love exploring with thee!
Avatar 8:10pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doug! how grand to explore in thy company!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm melinda:

The due date on my default notice is May 2018 but I've been paying off bills up to September 2019, I don't get it. Sorry, I'm freaking out but I'll stop.
Avatar 8:14pm Flash Strap:

Man I'm sorry you're getting terrorized right now Melinda, that really sounds insanely stressful, joy-consuming
Avatar 8:15pm Flash Strap:

i bet you fix it right up on the phone tomorrow though, i bet you really take care of it
Avatar 8:19pm Flash Strap:

what a masterpiece this is
Avatar 8:20pm Flash Strap:

"why are they so sick and ridiculous" is such a satisfying turn of phrase
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm melinda:

Thanks Flash. I just had some black-eyed peas for dinner and it helped.
Avatar 8:24pm Flash Strap:

i'm glad. but i'm also really sorry, and I'm pulling for you in tomorrow's phone battle

Hi LD! great to see ya pal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm melinda:

Psychedelic cumbia is always good.
Avatar 8:37pm still b/p:

Did not make it home without encountering very bad driver behavior a few times in a few miles. Evidently in 2020 the heads are even more unlikely to get pulled out!
Avatar 8:39pm Flash Strap:

Hi B/P! stay safe out there, there's nothing wolves and wild dogs on the roads and hyenas on the sidewalks
Avatar 8:40pm Flash Strap:

every version of Cumbia Sobre el Mar is good in my book
Avatar 8:42pm Flash Strap:

there's a version of it on the Jaime Llano Gonzalez album as well! I had to Make A Choice
Avatar 8:43pm still b/p:

This is all very soothing and happy for the après ass-hats evening.
Avatar 8:45pm Flash Strap:

perfect
Avatar 8:45pm Flash Strap:

this version of Cumbia Del Monte is such a banger it's crazy

Hi ParUbi!

this Maximiliano Chavez LP underrated for its extremely swampy psych sound

i cannot get enough of the music from this album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Doug Schulkind:

I stopped drooling over this Puro Tayta Shanti stuff long enough to realize I downloaded it ages ago, but have yet to touch it. You are my third ear, blessed Flash Strap.
Avatar 9:36pm coelacanth∅:

i've been tuned in for maybe 40 minutes but at minimal volume while my nephew and his girlfriend (& i) watch some pretty funny show about 3-4 guys smashing stuff from a tower. wish i could've turned it up but i'm in his house, and they were watching first.
Avatar 9:37pm Flash Strap:

SO happy to reactivate that one for you Doug! it's an extremely blessed release
Avatar 9:39pm Flash Strap:

@C: alas, alack, the vagaries of being hosted
Avatar 9:39pm Flash Strap:

@Doug: boy do I do that a lot by the way
Avatar 9:42pm coelacanth∅:

Evan i think it might've made a good soundtrack to the silliness of the show but i think they would've thought it distracting to the dialogue.
- i'll revisit.
Avatar 9:50pm Little Danny:

Thank you Evan! Didn't have the chance to properly listen this week, lookin' forward to catching the archive over the next week...
Avatar 9:52pm Little Danny:

Thanks Evan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm WR:

Great show Evan. Was listening all through but going to over insurance forms with wife so no chatting. Thanks for the Keith Hudson but the peaks were the Peruvian selections. Many other choice selections too, Mingus, and many others, a show that i will repeat listen a few times.
