transition: chapter I

As I announced a few days ago, I don’t feel that I have enough strength to keep a daily post, sharing a song with some ‘extra-content’ everyday; in fact I feel that the quality of this site has decreased dramatically; so,  since as someone (that for sure was wiser than me) said, ‘it’s better to […]


Before entering on the transition period to the ‘new situation‘ about this site that I announced a couple of days ago, I decide to pay attention to my children, who has reminded me about the annually celebration of the «School day of Non-violence and Peace» I think that the next song do not need extra […]

Birthdays: 20 (and V) and see you soon!

Today, let’s close this quick glimpse of records released 20 years ago that are celebrating their birthdays during 2019. We have done something similar with the 30th, 40th and 50th anniversary of such ‘birthday albums’. But we are going to say ‘see you’ too; not goodbye, but at least ‘bye’ to our main aspiration: we […]

Birthdays: 20 (IV)

The fourth record that we are including in this glimpse of albums released in 1999 is ‘Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the milky night’ by the post-rock British band ‘Stereolab’.

Birthdays: 20

I know that we are leaving a lot of great records from 1989 without name them here, but at least we have made a nice tribute. I was thinking to give a rapid glance to those records that are turning 25; but I realize that probably I wouldn’t finish this glimpse never. 1994 was a […]

Birthdays: 30 (V)

Today our beloved ‘Yo La Tengo’. Their record ‘President Yo La Tengo’ is turning 30 years old in 2019. This is what Stereogum wrote about it: ‘Featuring a number of great early Yo La Tengo compositions, ‘Prsident Yo La Tengo’ is an initiation into the creative ethic of a good band that is going to […]

Birthdays: 30 (III)

In 1989 it was released one of my two Pixies’ favourite records: ‘Doolittle’. Great success, inspiration for many other artists…; its clear sound contrasted with the lyrics about violence, death, torture… Enjoy!
