Super Japanese Synth Pop to Yet Another Fake Movie

After seeing Argo this week this is just a super find.

Argo is the true story recently released by the USA and written by a CIA operative, of their activities in 1979 Iran, when the embassy was under siege to evacuate six Americans under the guise of location scouting for a fake Hollywood sci-fi movie.

And here we have the sound track to a fake Bollywood movie.

Cochin Moon is by Yellow Magic Orchestra bassist Haruomi Hosono. Hosono was inspired to make music suggesting the other-worldy, spiritual world of Indian cinema and worked with pop artist Tadanori Yokoo, who did the incredible Bollywood-style cover art. This electro-tropical soundtrack to a fake movie of the same name is an entirely electronic work and  is a total dream.
