Luxuria Music

What the listener hears upon tuning into LuxuriaMusic (luxuriamusic.com) is a meticulously curated mixture of musical genres that make up the station’s eclectic alchemy. Surf Music, Bossa Nova, Exotica, Space-Age Bachelor Pad, Jazz, Soft-Psych, Sunshine Pop, Wall of Sound, Latin, Go-Go, and Film & TV music of the past 50 years are expertly distilled and blended in order to concoct the “highly intoxicating and sometimes hallucinatory” LuxuriaMusic Sound. Somehow, in this context, it all makes sense.

This is entertainment for people who possess a high level of pop-culture consciousness. It’s for hipsters well-versed in both The Brady Bunch and The Wild Bunch; Nick at Nite and Playboy After Dark; Disneyland and DisPepsi; Josie & The Pussycats and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Click on "Listen" and choose your player.

This is basicaly the only musical radio station I listen to for the past years. Each Saturday, they have a show, "Heroes & Villains" where they play Beach Boys songs. You'd think it would get repetitive after a while, but Brian Wilson has composed and produced so much material there's always something new. And on a related note, speaking of Brian Wilson, check out why the Beach Boys fired their manager, Murry Wilson, the Wilson's dad.

Murry Wilson later managed to turn another group into a one hit wonder (The Sunrays - I live for the sun). Then he died and his sons didn't come to his funeral. Fuck him...

I'm actually more into headbanger beats myself.

The nihilistic rage that can emanate from an electric guitar and a grudge vocalist I've found to be exceptional for taking off the edge.

But I'll give this a shot, too.

I don't get it. Is the music supposed to be hypnotic?

There's about two minutes of feedback before the song starts. X-D
