Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from October 5, 2017 Options

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.

Avatar 8:51pm Flash Strap:

Roots of Chicha 1 and 2 are very good
  8:52pm walkingTrees:

  9:13pm walkingTrees:

does antonio tour? or jorge?
Avatar 9:16pm Flash Strap:

not sure about Antonio, but Jorge Reyes had a fatal heart attack in 2009. I'm only playing his solo stuff tonight, but he was in a few psych/prog rock bands that are pretty interesting, particularly Chac Mool. I don't like any of it as much as this, but Mexico's exp. rock scene is totally overlooked
Avatar 9:18pm Flash Strap:

i should say, criminally overlooked. totally is an overstatement
Avatar 9:19pm northguineahills:

Made it back!
  9:19pm walkingTrees:

gotta cruise...thanks evan!
Avatar 9:20pm Flash Strap:

hey NGH! you missed alla the cumbias, i'm unhappy to report
Avatar 9:20pm Flash Strap:

my pleasure, adios WD
Avatar 9:21pm northguineahills:

I'm actually familiar w/ Jorge Reyes.
Avatar 9:23pm Flash Strap:

he's really good! and prolific
Avatar 9:25pm hyde:

not commenting, just listening while reading. love this set!
Avatar 9:31pm Flash Strap:

sounds perfect, hyde
Avatar 9:32pm Little Danny:

Tangerine Dream's Mexican cousins!
Avatar 9:32pm Little Danny:

This is awesome
Avatar 9:36pm coelacanth∅:

yeah this whole set! (which is where i came on board) and if it's mostly cumbia that i missed before that, i know i can goldstar the whole episode
Avatar 9:37pm Flash Strap:

exactly, such a cool idea to make music like this... there's already a kind of precolumbian notion of sort of ancient sci-fi that appears in a lot of synth music, but usually in the form of exoticism, imagined antiquities – like Edgar Froese's "Ages" – but this stuff sort of reverse engineers that syncretism with some indigenous knowledge and a more genuine connection to the land, jungle, animals. makes for very potent stuff
Avatar 9:38pm Flash Strap:

very happy to hear, Coelacanth!
Avatar 9:46pm northguineahills:

LD, exactly my thoughts (TD's Mexican cousins).

Luis Perez, new to me!
Avatar 9:47pm northguineahills:

gonna leave a bit early, but will be back for LD later.
Avatar 9:49pm Little Danny:

@ngh: All credit goes to Flash, who mentioned Tangerine Dream at the top of that last set
Avatar 9:53pm Little Danny:

Thanks again Flash.

We journey on into the night here: wfmu.org...

Please come in and have a seat
Avatar 9:55pm hyde:

thanks Flash!
Avatar 9:56pm Flash Strap:

My pleasure! have a great night, all
Avatar 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Evan!
Avatar 9:59pm Flash Strap:

god i love the way this record sounds
Avatar 3:30am rata:

such an excellent set, I hadn't heard the new meridian brothers yet, what a great way to get started on it! have you listened to anything by los pirañas, their guitarist's other band? fantastic stuff also, really out there
