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.

Formica Man - Formica Man (Self Release, 2011)

This is the first EP of the group. It's been released in 2011 and I haven't found any other releases. I'm not sure if the band is still up or not. In March 2013 they posted a comment in their Facebook page to mention there will be perhaps a tour in Europe the next year. So it's a bit strange to post about this EP now,  but I'm just in love with this EP and I "discovered" it only in 2013.

It's a special Pop using abrupt vocals and a lot of breaks and brutal ruptures. The result is both a little strange and quite catchy if you enjoy like me abruptness and breaks in music. Despite a systematic use of abruptness and breaks, the band succeed brilliantly to make each track very distinct and the vocals use many different approaches. It could be tagged as a sort of Art Rock but despite the abrupt vocals most tracks have a sort of Pop color, it's vaguely in the idea of the first album of the Pretenders which is a Pop album with very abrupt vocals, something weird for Pop but rather great, alas The Pretenders never reproduced it nor developed it. That Formica Man EP is much less into Pop than this first The Pretenders album, but still a bit, it could be tagged Art Pop, anyway it's a great EP.

To listen: Free download at Band's bandcamp page.
To support the artists: Buy the vinyl.

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