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.

i keep reading reviews of this that sort of act like Kate NV's sound is this unprecedented thing, and getting annoyed because it's an extremely good iteration of a sound with ample precedent

but mostly i'm pleased it's getting good reviews, because it's super good

I bet I've seen a haeckel poster on a wall somewhere before

@G: it was strange to discover that her inspiration was the city of Moscow, because it really puts me in an aquatic / floating in a petri dish state of mind. I like that unexpected element of it a lot though

I'll say it again though, wow what a good new record

I had a friend that got a hold of some DMT a two years ago, but I was busy w/ what led to moving madness I never got try any.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 7:59pm Flash Strap:

his notes on the album are very in line with early Castaneda, in a way. though it's hard to tell what exactly they're tripping on in Don Juan, at times. Mescaline / Peyote / Ayahuasca?

this album is a real brain melter

@NGH: I guess previous Typhonian Highlife releases have been mostly pretty Hellraiser / Cenobyte themed, of all things, so this one's pretty unique

Garnet Toucan notes:
"The final work in the "Romance Audio Trilogy"; The previous works being "Bamboo For Two" and "Make Mine, Macaw". The intention in these works lies in finding a symbolic, exotic, animal to unleash a psychoactive environment expression that leads one to an elaborate meeting with the natural world. "The Garnet Toucan" completes the trilogy by uncovering the symbolic animal’s transfiguration into the outerzone of infinite space. The Parrot or Toucan is thought of as a mediator between human and nature. The exotic environment is an unknown imagined nature, while the romantic vision's illusion is a disposition that can reveal the hidden side of the outer world as it lies within itself..."

hypnagogic: relating to the state immediately before falling asleep

this is a very important creative window!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 8:57pm melinda:

That's cool, I've never seen dolphins. I did see the tail of a whale from the ferry from Nova Scotia back to Maine. A cab driver who spent a lot of time on boats told me he once got close enough to a whale that the wind blew its blowhole exhalation onto his face. My first thought was 'did it stink?' but he said it felt sort of warm and moist and was one of those peak lifetime experiences.

I have dreams about international travel where i get to the airport and realize I forgot my passport. But I don't really do international travel in real life, so it's weird.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:01pm Flash Strap:

i think i've played this before but when i settled on Tanguy's "belomancy" as the top playlist image I realized i couldn't resist playing it again, I mean how many pieces of music have anything to do with the term?

i have a lot of dreams, A LOT, where I'll find a cache of records in a category or style that I'd never even imagined, and as I'm scooping them up and putting them into piles I realize none of this is real, I'll never get to hear these, and then I wake up

It's interesting how one can have the same theme in a dream over and over and not catch on that it isn't reality. The crumbling teeth theme gets me every time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:08pm chresti:

Every summer I think I should do something touristy in my own town, and thought a whale watching boat ride might be cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:12pm chresti:

It really is like being in a "room" here!
Avatar    Thu. 7/12/18 9:13pm geezerette:

I often dream of paintings I haven't actually made. Then I have to make them.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:13pm Flash Strap:

i kick myself that in all the years I spent in Boston, I never went on a whale watch. my wife grew up there and saw so many whales
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:14pm Flash Strap:

(speaking of both whales, and touristy stuff in your own town)
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:14pm Flash Strap:

@Chresti: I strive for this, thank you so much
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:15pm chresti:

I have many dreams of being in a large place, studio, warehouse, or party with many people
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:15pm Flash Strap:

there are 2 different versions of "Songs of Gold, Incandescent", hence the different years here. one has more tracks i guess
Avatar    Thu. 7/12/18 9:16pm geezerette:

This is great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:16pm chresti:

I've made paintings from dreams
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:16pm Flash Strap:

Dolphins into the Future aka Lieven Martens Moana is great. The LP ...On Sea Faring Isolation is a classic, I think
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:17pm Flash Strap:

@chresti: me too, it's a very good method, I say
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:19pm chresti:

Agree
Avatar    Thu. 7/12/18 9:19pm geezerette:

So this really is an explorers club!
Avatar    Thu. 7/12/18 9:20pm geezerette:

Love the laugh.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:20pm Flash Strap:

absolutely it is
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:20pm Flash Strap:

me too! it's a funny track
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:21pm chresti:

always something new
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:21pm Flash Strap:

strange to imagine Liebezeit bringing his godlike hammers to such a silly track
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:22pm chresti:

he seems to be all over the place
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:22pm chresti:

my kind of guy
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:23pm Flash Strap:

truly. so much session work... sometimes he disappears into whatever the job requires, sometimes you sit up and think – that's Liebezeit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:23pm chresti:

this is a parody? it's great either way
Avatar    Thu. 7/12/18 9:23pm geezerette:

So great.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:24pm Flash Strap:

not sure, it's an unusual record all around
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:26pm Flash Strap:

nice cover: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:26pm chresti:

I guess you could say that about a lot of percussionists -in high demand
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:27pm chresti:

that is nice
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:29pm Flash Strap:

i have a real soft spot for any of these oddball krautrock-adjacent projects
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:32pm Flash Strap:

i also have a real soft spot for any concept album that centers something like a sunfish. not enough of that if you ask me
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:34pm Flash Strap:

i was going to be more judicious about what parts of this to play but I think I'm just going to let it run. I love this record
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 9:37pm hyde:

ooh this is really good
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:37pm Flash Strap:

big agree
  Thu. 7/12/18 9:37pm ?:

Cheers Flash, you have inspired me to head out the door and visit the Sydney Aquarium this afternoon (but not until the show has finished).
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:38pm Flash Strap:

what a splendid idea, please take me with you
  Thu. 7/12/18 9:39pm zonk ludlow:

In spirit & the playlist that will accompany me.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:39pm Flash Strap:

when I was in Bali, or rather Nusa Penida, years ago, I had hoped to see sunfish, but alas i did not
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:40pm Flash Strap:

they're so big
  Thu. 7/12/18 9:40pm zonk ludlow:

They are beautiful creatures.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 9:41pm Flash Strap:

hi zonk, I figured that question mark was you!
  Thu. 7/12/18 9:42pm zonk ludlow:

So lost in the show I forgot who I was for bit.

Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 10:01pm Flash Strap:

"unwittingly, he trained a dolphin to kill the president of the united states" directed by Mike Nichols! i know nothing of this till now
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 10:01pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 10:02pm chresti:

I think I must see it at once
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 10:02pm Flash Strap:

sounds bizarre
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/12/18 10:03pm melinda:

I've known of it as a weird George C. Scott vehicle but never investigated.
Avatar Thu. 7/12/18 10:03pm Flash Strap:

ok, i'm off, goodnight explorers
