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.

Froth - Patterns (Burger, 2013)

This is the first album of the band. At first it doesn't seem very original but it is surprisingly catchy and fascinating. It's that sort of album that makes me feel I shouldn't like it that much and I should get tired of it quite fast but I'm not. There's some magic I can't pinpoint clearly making this album catchy, fascinating and resisting well to accumulated listening.

This album has three distinctive elements not really original but at least less common, laid back incantatory vocals quite fascinating, a strange production and strange use of reverbs giving a strange sound to the album, a 70's like keyboard which is an important part to build the mood of the music. There's also on many tracks a (second) guitar with studied slashing building above the music an important melodic and rhythmic layout. And on some tracks, there's textures build in the background additionally to the work done by the keyboard.

The whole is build with a light psychedelic mood and sounds like a mix of two musical layouts, in front a laid back but intense layout build by vocals and a guitar, and a second layout build by the other instruments which is like the swaying of waves with some temporary acceleration. It's a great first album a bit fascinating and with some mysterious magic.

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.
