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.

Family Curse - Twilight Language (Self Release, 2013)

This is the first album of the band. They tagged it as Art rock and Art Punk and that's quite pertinent, it's also a sort of Post Punk with some Art Rock relationships and strong roots in Punk without to be Punk.

There's various sources of influences on this album and their dominance depends of the track. For example the singing use three distinct directions, a path quite close to some classical Punk, another almost spoken or shouted with influences from Hardcore singing, and another reminds Art Rock declamatory. Another example is the guitars. It's almost Punk riffs on some tracks and on some other other it seems come from a New Wave close to Post Punk like "NY NY NY" with strong echoes of sounds color and guitars melodies that seem come right from Cure first albums particularly the first. And on some tracks the abuse of guitars break seems come from Art Rock.

One great element of this album is the composition quality. It's a solid Punk/Rock composition talent, not at all aiming Pop. The compositions are  diversified and there's a direct efficiency despite some sophistication in instruments, vocals and tracks structures. That's enough to allow enjoy it a lot, but there's perhaps missing a more distinctive style, more uncommon and more clearly identifiable to attract the attention and remind you to re listen it once more. It's anyway a very good first album, strongly advised if you like modern Punk or Post Punk.

To listen: Band's bandcamp page. Or 130k vbr preview.
To support the artists: Buy the digital.

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