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.

very lovely exotica arrangement on this Yumi Seino
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm chresti:

Yes, kinda cha-cha like.
Avatar 7:10pm Flash Strap:

been meaning to play some material from this soundtrack for years, it's a real favorite ever since a bud tipped me to it. never seen the film
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm WR:

Hello Flash Strap and Explorers. Listening but HUNGRY! Thinking about pancakes for dinner. Or ramen. Something easy and fast, like me.
Avatar 7:13pm Flash Strap:

Hi WR! was pretty hungry myself, sort of fumbling with this first set while wolfing down a piece of salmon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Shaw:

Greetings Flash. Happy to be listening! Great set so far!
Avatar 7:19pm Flash Strap:

hi Shaw! thanks and warm welcome
Avatar 7:20pm Flash Strap:

This "Tanganica" is such a nice slice of laid back psychedelic exotica
Avatar 7:21pm Frog Mover:

Hello! Enchanting looking show tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm chresti:

Ramen is my go to quick meal, WR.

Hi Doc!

I image Brazil has a very wild west indeed.
Avatar 7:49pm Flash Strap:

@aitch: have you seen Bacurau? very wild west, that one
Avatar 7:49pm Flash Strap:

completely possessed by this track of late
JUIPITI!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Little Danny:

"Juipiti": what a groove! Tried counting but couldn't figure out its time signature.
Avatar 7:51pm Flash Strap:

it's so cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Aitch:

No, but will check it. Looks interesting, had a quick look at trailer
Avatar 7:52pm Flash Strap:

this is a really great comp, trying very hard not to listen it to death before the LP arrives
Avatar 7:53pm Flash Strap:

@aitch: it's a doozy brother
Avatar 7:55pm Flash Strap:

this one's a smoker man wow
Avatar 7:56pm Frog Mover:

Love this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm chris:

first time listening to the show. pretty fascinating the Columbia/Africa thing. all the music so far is right up my alley and new to me! thanks, Flash Strap!
Avatar 7:59pm Flash Strap:

Hi Chris! thanks for joining us friend
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Aitch:

Liking African Kung Fu, very nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm chresti:

Hi chris!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm chris:

hi, chresti! :)
Avatar 8:05pm Flash Strap:

there is a large black population in coastal Colombia, and thus a huge & ongoing African influence on Colombian music generally, but this Machuca material seems to take it a bit further into murky territory of heightening the African-ness in a variety of odd exotic ways that are both organic and manufactured to a degree. a real gnarl of syncretism
Avatar 8:07pm Flash Strap:

god it's such a unique trippy sound from this crew
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Aitch:

Syncretism word for the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm chris:

thanks for a bit of context. its really fun. digging!
Avatar 8:09pm Flash Strap:

syncretism is always the word in the Explorers Room
Avatar 8:10pm Frog Mover:

New Meridian Bros sounds dope!
Avatar 8:10pm Flash Strap:

yeah so while I'm diggin' this Machuca comp and thinking about legendary Machuca outfit Cumbia Siglo XX, I see that the Meridian Bros have a new album out – and it's called Cumbia Siglo XXI. i mean hell yes
Avatar 8:11pm Flash Strap:

Cumbia Siglo XX = 20th century cumbia of course
Avatar 8:11pm Flash Strap:

@FM: it really really is
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm chresti:

I love the Meridian Bros' sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Aitch:

Quite the record
Avatar 8:17pm Flash Strap:

they really grab you with that sound
  8:18pm Akiva:

This sounds vaguely like Palermo’s Grunch. You had us dancing like crazy for that one.
Avatar 8:19pm Flash Strap:

Hi Akiva! yeah that one is wild! I think this sounds a lot like that Piranas record
Avatar 8:22pm Flash Strap:

like the piranas / romperayo / meridian bros sound is sort of converging on XXI
Avatar 8:22pm Flash Strap:

but now we take ourselves to Iquitos, Peru for some delicious psychedelic cumbia
Avatar 8:23pm Flash Strap:

Ranil sounding a lot like Los Wembler's on Licenciado
Avatar 8:24pm Flash Strap:

(also of Iquitos)
Avatar 8:30pm Flash Strap:

I only got into these Soundway Panama collections this year and they're so damn good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm chris:

oh damn this is funky. so good!
Avatar 8:38pm Flash Strap:

so funky
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm WR:

Into the mountains!
Avatar 8:55pm Flash Strap:

obsessed with the eerie, funny beauty of this composition
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm chris:

hey thanks again, Flash Strap. so stoked to have found your show. i have to cut out early, but will catch up in archives. dope shit. take good care, everyone.
Avatar 8:56pm Flash Strap:

hi Coelacanth!
Avatar 9:02pm Flash Strap:

really really good horn section here my god
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm WR:

Yasuaki Shimizu is new to me. Interesting sound. Electro-ambient pop featuring his sax & clarinet playing.
Avatar 9:04pm Flash Strap:

love it when we find something new in this world
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm WR:

Pretty sure the "horn section" is all Yasuaki Shimizu himself.
Avatar 9:04pm Flash Strap:

totally yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm melinda:

hi all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm chresti:

This is nice.
Avatar 9:06pm Flash Strap:

Hi Melinda!
Avatar 9:10pm Flash Strap:

very curious record, this SAB. don't know anything about who recorded it but it's exceedingly lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Shaw:

That part was nuts!
Avatar 9:16pm Honeybear:

yup - it's a head-scratcher
  9:18pm Phillippe Bastille:

Howdy
Avatar 9:18pm Flash Strap:

hi Honeybear! Phillippe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Little Danny:

@Flash: any idea what that synth was that was heard on "Menou"? Same sound shows up all over early Tangerine Dream.
Avatar 9:19pm Honeybear:

@strap - hiya
Avatar 9:21pm Flash Strap:

@LD: VERY tangerine dream. I think it's a korg sq-10 sequencer
Avatar 9:24pm Flash Strap:

great cover on this one: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Little Danny:

Thanks Evan!
Avatar 9:26pm Flash Strap:

my pleasure! i had a feeling someone would ask that, it's so Tangerine it's crazy
Avatar 9:28pm Flash Strap:

EP-4 has just the craziest sound, I love them
Avatar 9:34pm Flash Strap:

a very Brenda Ray-esque, highly detached punky dub from R.N.A.O. here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Shaw:

love the throbbing bass on this and the EP-4 track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm WR:

Wonder if R.N.A. Organism is sampling / remixing Augustus Pablo. Sounded like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Doug Schulkind:

Majestic meanderings this evening, Mr. Flash!
Avatar 9:36pm Flash Strap:

Why Hello and Thank You Doug!
Avatar 9:39pm Flash Strap:

I've never seen it, but this Yamash'ta album is the soundtrack to a film about Grand Prix racing, of all things
Avatar 9:40pm Flash Strap:

I recently saw another film with a Yamash'ta score: Altman's "Images" - couldn't recommend more highly
  9:41pm Dean:

Stomu Yamashta is seriously overlooked. I'm not into film soundtracks, because I'm not into film, but I really enjoy his music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Shaw:

I love Images! haven't seen it in a long time. Now I want to re-watch it
Avatar 9:42pm Flash Strap:

This Tsuchiya record - and the Ippu Do record from around this time, Night Mirage - are really rewarding imo
Avatar 9:43pm Flash Strap:

@Shaw: it's so rewatchable, really looking forward to rewatching it myself. really cool in dialogue with his later 3 Women (and also Persona, of course)
Avatar 9:44pm Flash Strap:

Hi Dean! he's great yeah. really dig his Red Buddha album
Avatar 9:44pm Flash Strap:

i love soundtracks to films i haven't seen, as this show will attest
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Little Danny:

I'll be doing my dirty business over here momentarily: wfmu.org...

Hope you all will join in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm chresti:

Beautiful lovely show, Flash!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Little Danny:

Thanks so much Evan. Beautiful show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Aitch:

fascinating show as usual, thanks
Avatar 9:55pm Flash Strap:

thank you, my friends
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm WR:

Thank you Evan, EP-4 had a lot of releases, new to me and will be looking for them on my next trip to Japan, whenever that may be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Shaw:

Thanks Flash! Great show!
Avatar 9:55pm Flash Strap:

you won't regret it WR!
Avatar 9:56pm Flash Strap:

my pleasure Shaw!
