20ft Radio & Dream Weapons present: SUNWARD C60

Exotica tends to get lumped into the easy listening-section. But although a thing of beauty its often got a remarkably eerie and dramatic atmosphere. A lot of «serious music» is surely an easier listen… Anyway to spice things up a little extra in between all the hip beach and jungle-soundscapes I’ve managed to dig up seven wondrously exotic vintage songs for you as well. If you dig this stuff even half as much as I do, you’re in for a real treat! -Moahaha

1 The Islanders - City Under the Sea
2 Zespół Instrumentalny Marka Sewena - Cubanacan
3 Annette Hanshaw - Maui Girl
4 Hector Zazou - Le Passage de la Frontière
5 Giuliano Sorgini - Rhinoceros
6 Mantovani & Tipica Orchestra - Aloha Marimba
7 George Cates - Now Is The Hour
8 Stanley Wilson - Ritual of the Fertility Tree
9 Charles Bud Dant & His Orchestra - Forevermore
10 Fantastic Strings Orchestra - Luna Llena
11 Ted Auletta - The Sound of Exotica

12 Alfred Alpaka - Dark Moon

  1. Well thank you! I love the Exotica, mysterious music , especially of the 50s and 60s !

    1. You're welcome DOOMSTERJOHN - sounds to me there's a good chance you'd enjoy Sunward. Its vintage and I tried to compile an hour of mysterious beauty rather than "fun" (although I guess its a bit of both)

    2. Thank you again for this beautiful compilation ! This music is from lost world that will never come back !

    3. Yeah the long lost feel of it is definitely part of the attraction. Distant Drums is similarily themed - although "looser" and more of a exotica/lounge/jazzy kind of mix. Well, perhaps you'll enjoy it:

  2. NICE!!!! thank you very much for the tip!! It's golden.... =-]

    mr. Nice

    1. Glad the tip did the trick for you beach bums:)

  3. It surely did.. we had a potluck dinner party, with 'Sunward' on repeat... it set a tone, a nice one...
