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.

The Sufis - The Sufis (Ample Play, 2012)

The band released last month their second album, Inventions, on the labels Ample Play and Burger. I need listen it more before post or not some comments on it in the blog, but it pushed me comment shortly their first album, The Sufis.

This first self-titled album was initially a release with a free download on bancamp. But this didn't last long because the band found the label Ample Play to release the album.

This first album is very influenced by Pink Floyd era with Syd Barrett and more generally by 60's Psychedelic. It's musical games collecting psychedelic tricks, merging them and chaining them to build tracks from catchy to almost experimental for few tracks. It's great stuff and the strong echoes to that Pink Floyd era isn't a problem because it's still different and it's not a frequent lineage.

The only difficult point is that few tracks are borderline experimental which could make them difficult to listen depending of your mood. But there's only two tracks that are very close to experimental and they are smaller, about 1"40 each, it's "In the Ashram" and "Light Tunnel". But the parts or elements more experimental add a lot of spice to the whole album. Most tracks use almost experimental elements or at least weird elements and merge them smartly to make most tracks both catchy and uncommon. On most tracks the experimental aspects are even almost hidden by the smart merging, great first album.

To listen: Streaming sites like Deezer, Rdio or Spotify. Or 135k vbr preview.
To support the artists: Buy at Ample Play the vinyl or the CD. 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.
