It's just a music blog from an occasional music fan. This blog doesn't target a specific music genre but my preferences lead me more to music gravitating around Garage Rock. But that means many different genres mixes like with Psychedelic, Post Punk, Punk, Country, Pop and many more. I also like some other genres of music like Rock, Psychedelic, tempered Experimental, Post Punk and Art Rock.

Also it's just a personal blog and sometimes I'll post some comments about some... mainstream albums too. Not that it will bring anything to the billions of posts or reviews already written about such album, but just because it's a blog about music I like a lot and I just want share it, or at least share it potentially ... lost in the world wide web but ready to be shared. :-D

I make the blog in English despite I don't write well in that language because I believe it will be easier for international users. So I apologize to English speaking users.


The word is garage three times, or two times, or even once.

Boyhood - When I'm Hungry (Bruised Tongue, 2012)

An incredible thunderous Garage Pop mini album by this Canadian band, it's not Noise not even really noisy, it's not aggressive to the ears but it's very powerful. The abuse of bass tones and the frequent reversal of roles between the bass tones and the medium and highs tones create a weird music, full of power and very exciting... if you can bear the strange music. :-)

Another striking aspect is its thoroughly Garage approach, not a single sound that isn't at least a little distorted, crackling, cavernous or otherwise. But it is not for the sake of contrast and aggression, on the contrary it is very measured, not even really aggressive rather flattering to the ear. This work on the sounds build a less common music, a bit dirty and compose music on a fourth axis, the sounds.

The abuse of bass tones and the thunderous mood are a great trick, but the overall work on sounds at the composition layer is remarkable and let hope even better for future releases, even if it will be only for few lucky listeners.

You can listen the album or buy the cassette at label bandcamp page or you can listen the same album at artist bandcamp page. Or you can download a preview but the quality is only a bit better than standard streaming quality, and be fair, if you like dig it, don't forget support the artists and buy it.
