The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 164

After another week, yes another one, of political nonsense (every day is another a 'D Day' than is followed by another and then another...) and with a growing feeling that this perennial 'Groundhog Day' is going to last for long. So here we are, once again trying to modestly compensate this uncertain, worrying times, by bringing you our last TOP TEN Jukebox! A pretty diverse playlist to properly begin the weekend, from the post-punk echoes of Drahla, the janglepop touch of Salad Boys, to the pop-punk sounds of Radiator Hospital... tunes for all tastes. Give it a try! And remember, all songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

Discoverer 159: new indie findings

Back with our discoverer series with a trio of indiepop finds ready to bring you the latest slices of summer sun as well as being your cousy companion for the Fall season we hope is arriving soon (if Global Warming allows). Check them out!

Mini Dresses. Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, although the origins of the band have to be traced in the summer of 2012, at the home recording project of Lira Mondal and Caufield Sching in Austin, Texas. But after moving East and recruiting Luke Reed on drums, the band got their current shape, beginning a pretty steady flow of singles and EP, as well as opening slots for popular acts like Deerhunter, Weyes Blood, and Blog favourites like Fear of Men, Chastity Belt, Dick Diver or Tacocat. First full length, a compilation of tunes from the aforementioned earlier works, appeared this summer, with the self-titled album following this September, out via Joy Void Records. Dreampop meeting bedroom pop, or indiepop enveloped in haze and reflective moods, with occasional excursions to jangle pop or experimental boundaries, here's your soundtrack for the Fall.

Baby! Let me introduce you to the world of Kaley Honeycutt, a really young (she's below 25, my goodness!) Orlando musician now based in Boston, which started to make some noise around the Blogosphere last year while sharing some of their tunes, but who has taken by assault this 2017 with her first two releases: the debut EP, 'Pick Me' , out in April, followed in August by the summery first full-length 'Sunny, F.L.', out via Yellow K Records. Über catchy, between jangle and surf pop bittersweet tunes, packed with these sun kissed vibes and immediate hook melodies, but also some biting, rockier punch soaked in reverb. Not to be missed!

Sea BliteOne of the mightiest things about music is getting lost among "connections". You know, when discovering a band brings you to another, and then another and etc, etc. That's the case with this combo from San Francisco, formed in early 2016 (according to their Facebook, little info out there), found thanks to the SF Pop Fest and our previous discovery of the great Rat Fancy. With a line-up that includes former members of Wax Idols, Primary Colours or Dirty Cupcakes, their first release, out this June in the form of a self-titled EP you can physically grab on tape from Death Records, is fated to be listed among this humble Blog's best-of-year ranks. Four jangle pop gems echoing vintage pop sounds and the spirit of the likes of Tiger Trap, Go Sailor or my beloved Arts & Leisure (see? more connections). Instant crush!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 162

We have tried, promise. We have tried not to talk about the TOPIC, but in fact it's quite difficult not to think, feel and breathe "about" this Catalonia-Spain situation... Luckily, we have a temporary antidote... that you can use as much as you can. Yes, of course, we are referring to our new TOP TEN Jukebox! This time we have our beloved Sharon Van Etten 'revisiting' us with her always perfect tunes, but also a Seattle riot grrrl band called Who is she?, an Antipodean touch thanks to Last Leaves or the Swedish band Stars in Coma. An amazing global playlist for this crazy weeks of raising flags and actually doing & saying nothing... Have fun, try to disconnect as much as you can and remember, all songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 161

Tired of the "groundhog flag day" we are stuck here? So are we. Really tired. Exhausted. Of fascism, repression and manipulation (outside and online). Of blatant lies. Oh, how we would love to have a magic receipt to put an end to it (it's going to last much longer, hope you realize) sometimes! Unfortunately, we don't have it. But instead, we can provide you with music, at least a humble escape or motivation, a bit of sunlight maybe? with our traditional TOP TEN Jukeboxfull of bands we love and are back in action, like The Stammer, Gingerlys of The Treasures of Mexico, as well as our regular dose of new, exciting finds. Have fun (if you can) and remember, all songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 159

Surreal times, folks. Personal celebrations, with a most-welcomed "re-encounter" included, alongside with hospital visits and a political national scenario that really looks like a terrible, bad, gross, supposedly funny movie. Thanks music for helping us not to being schizophrenic, here's a new round of our  TOP TEN Jukebox, as diverse as awesome, coming a bit later than usual (we insist, crazy week), but ready to cheer-up your Sunday, thanks to friends like our beloved The Luxembourg Signal, or the "re-invention" of the great 'George Best' by The Wedding Present, as well as new discoveries like Colombian artist Loyal Lobos or New Zealanders Grawlixes. Take care and remember, all songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)
