Tonight, the Explorers Room will take a pause in its Beach Boys exploration in order to spend some time in the epic and sublime sounds of fin-de-siècle and early 20th century classical and art music, with particular attention paid to themes of exoticism, ritual, and primordiality. All but one selection will be drawn from my own vinyl collection, for what it's worth, and all have spectacular, weird album art, in many ways much like some of your better Exotica covers. Come along on this plunge into the orchestral primeval, the ooze from which exotica is born.
Tomorrow: New post. Next Week: Beach Boys Part Deux - Grownmen in a Sea of Troubles.
