Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from July 14, 2016 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

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'm pretty sure that i've watched parts of Green Mansions on Turner Classic. it seemed ok, but not great. But it's got Lee J. Cobb *and* Henry Silva!

has the look of an interesting premise done in a very uninteresting way, but you can never be sure

This music is pretty wild at times though, could really elevate material

Melinda! What a treat!

@DR.: Herbie is a real mixed bag, but there's a lot of killer in there too, this being near the top, along with the Whiskey

i mean, the lineup on this is insane: www.discogs.com...

I love the cover of that Herbie Mann album.

This stuff is so, uh, stimulating
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm
melinda:

What is bad about bad Herbie Mann?
Avatar 8:39pm
Flash Strap:

Nothing, necessarily. I feel like people put him down a lot and there's some cornier or just unimaginative stuff of his that helps me to understand why, but I have a bunch of Herbie Mann LPs that I love to death

Such weird little details all through this stuff. Great percussion in particular, and the vocals are so in line with the exotica-woman motif

Funny, I'd never cared much for Villa-Lobos before but whether it was you playing it or my more receptive ears or both, it reached me in a serious way.

Forest turns to desert and desert turns to: wfmu.org... See y'all over there!
  9:58pm
Dean:

Dang, missed Villa-Lobos. @Little Danny, I assume you know the Stravinsky slight to V-L? I for one don't like much music from Brazil, frankly. V-L redeems the country!
Avatar 9:58pm
Flash Strap:

Yeah, I'm two ways on him as well, Danny, but that piece hardwires right into my, your, our shared sensibility, I think
  9:59pm
Dean:

And Badi Assad.
Avatar 9:59pm
Flash Strap:

Thanks to all of YOU

what;s the slight, Dean? (Also, I think Brazilian music is brilliant, for the record)
  9:59pm
Dean:

"Why is it that whenever I hear a piece of music I don't like, it's always by Villa Lobos?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm
coelacanth:

Thanks Evan! Excelente!

tchau explorers

reminds me of Nick Cave on the Red Hot Chili Peppers


OK goodnight, all!

I've always assumed that RHCP were wittingly cribbing from Igor.
