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.

Various Artists - Le Garage Se Rebiffe (Close Up, 2013)

This recently released Garage compilation has a shift when compared to current Garage. It's quite old school oriented with a sort of 60's color, and it's not much focused on the dirty aspects of Garage unlike most modern Garage. Moreover many tracks has winks to French Yéyé music from the beginning of the 60's. All of that gives to this Garage compilation a very uncommon color in comparison to modern Garage.

Another very interesting element is despite this rather old school and falsely naive approach, in fact many tracks are quite interesting musically with uncommon and funny instruments plays and compositions. It's an excellent merge of false naive and old school with relative sophistication and originality mildly hidden. The whole is very fun, very refreshing and quite interesting. I applaud and with a little louder clapping for the he girls side which is the A side, and also for the special track concluding very well this compilation.

You can listen it on Close Up label bandcamp page. Or you can preview it here but at a quality only a bit better than standard streaming, and be fair, if you like dig it, support the artists and don't forget to buy the album.

To support the artists you can buy the vinyl at Close Up label. You can also buy the digital album at Close Up label bandcamp page.
