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.

Pink Mexico - Pnik Mxeico (Self Release, 2013)

This first album of Pink Mexico is Garage Grunge a bit more minimalist than it's usual in Grunge and with vocals that have some 60's or 70s Pop colors. As most often in post Nirvana Grunge there's some riffs and bits of vocals or instruments melodies that evoke some Nirvana tracks, but it's variations, there's an important style shift, and that's not on all tracks.

The deliberate echoes are a part of the pleasure to listen this album, but the key is the style which is very successful and unusual for Grunge influenced musics. The vocals quite top with a lot of nuances and they are certainly the major element of the album. The instruments are quite more Rock to match the Grunge style, they are less sophisticated than the vocals and they have an approach a bit minimalist. But the instruments details and uses are polished, and they are a major element to build the tracks by giving an excellent counter point to the vocals, and the whole is very catchy. It's great stuff rather uncommon despite the mainstream influences through Grunge and Pop.

To listen: Band's  bandcamp page. Or 115k vbr v6 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.
