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.

Otomo - Big Little Things (Self Release, 2012)

This Spanish group had already released an EP and an album both well-made. But with the mini album "Big Little Things" the group makes a step forward. In this mini album the group shows more boldness with more complex structures which evolve more. Sounds are more worked and there are more superimposed musical layers, this makes the music richer and more interesting. The music is also more dynamic and more nervous and that's more catchy.

The music genre is difficult to qualify, there is Electro but also guitars and battery. The group qualifies its music of experimental Post Rock. The experimental aspect is undeniable in the structures of the tracks but it's very moderate by many very catchy elements. The Post Rock aspect isn't obvious because it is different from what we usually hear in this genre, here no long tracks, no long rise and other classic tricks in this genre. In fact it's instrumental music and it's also a sort of Math Rock which uses very few of the usual clichés of this genre. Anyway it's an excellent mini album, catchy, interesting and with a certain musical ambition.

It's free download at Bandcamp as are the previous releases.
