Mambo Uh, Watashi Wa Anata O Aishite!!

Curious (but not strange to me) album; is not a secret the great interest of japanese musicians in latin music (since the 50's), so here is a cool sample (a spanish geisha? So far away from Center America, cradle of those sticky rhythms)

Japan Goes Latin

Megapost with this amazing dignity keepers and art heroes; a special gift to my friend VAL9000 and all people interesting in the meaning of life.

The Past Must Not Be Erased

This album is collecting awesome pre-1975 Cambodian rock classics on gatefold double vinyl. In the years before Pol Pot's notoriously hardline and anti-Western Khmer Rouge regime altered the history of Cambodia forever, there was a flourishing, anarchic and vital rock scene centred in the capital Phnom Penh. Sadly (as i said in previous posts) some of the artists featured, notably Sinn Sisamouth "The Emperor of Khmer Music" and Ros Sereysothea "The Golden Voice of the Royal Capital" couldn't escape the brutal regime and were executed because of their involvement with the Khmer rock scene. This record captures the thrilling soulfulness of their music from a number of tapes and old vinyl which have survived at enormous risk to their owners, making this one of the most definitive collections of early Cambodian rock music. (searching for vols. 1 & 3 of the collection, any help?)

Agoraphobic Arrhythmia (Repost)

This album contains some of the most interesting dark soundscapes of last years, and shows a leaning further into wonderfully bassy dubstep territories. A cohesive, distinctive work that exhaustively explores some of electronica's darker realms. A bloody trip into deep mind shades.


Distorting with the Prince of Persia (Repost)

Amazing collection that gathers some of the rarest Persian 45's, totally unknown outside of Iran until now. A eclectic mix of styles, from garage nuggets to cool Persian beat and prog/psych. Probably the major discovery from Iran in the recent years and one of the few, if not the only truly Persian prog/psych 45's ever recorded.

Shake the Batik!!! (Repost)

A look back to the Indonesian legacy of garage and rock 'n' roll bands, who wrote the history by themselves during the 60's, confrontating the Indonesian regime with music. Protest against dictatorships pushing the fuzz pedal, and let flow the raw beats of indo-rock!!


Hyper Tunes for Hyper Vender-Minds (Repost)

Futuristic pretty groovy blur of psychedelic synthesis to blow your mind with concrete sounds from inner synaptic junction, stir before drinking (Monsieur Pierre Henry on machines...)


Bass Machine, Half Human Being (Repost)

Cool electro-tribute to the gods of bits and waves.

Fantastic album that highlights the shimauta champloo (mix) of Okinawan with western music in the 60's and 70's, bloody interesting.
