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.

Hookworms - Pearl Mystic (Gringo, 2013)

It's the first album of this Psychedelic Rock band from UK. Their first EP which preceded this album is interesting but it is dark and little catchy, this makes it difficult to listen. At the opposite this first album is strangely catchy and it makes wonder why it is so much fascinating.

Its genre, especially on the most energetic tracks, is to transpose Happy Mondays into a psychedelic more classic than what made Happy Mondays, and it's enough distant to Happy Mondays to not be a simple copy. The result is viciously catchy. A superficial listening can make it look slightly too classic, in fact the mixture gives a result not so common in Psychedelic Rock, and this makes it catchy to the point of being fascinating. This album is a superb success.

To listen: I noticed streaming sites like Deezer, Rdio or Spotify. Or 115k vbr v6 preview.

To support the artists: Buy the vinyl LP, CD or lossless digital at Gringo label. Or the digital on the various standard places.

Where all of this is going if nobody buy the music? Be fair, buy the music you like dig.
