The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 229

A pretty full weekend… despite the rain (nice change for this city, everyday closer to the tropics). But now that we have a little break, it’s time to offer you our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX, full of discoveries, as usual, plus a stunning cover of one Stereolab’s finest, courtesy of Seablite (can’t wait to listen their new release). There’s a wide variety of styles/genres in the music gathered, indiepop, jangle pop and arresting female singer-songwriters, a soundtrack for whatever mood suit us with this unpredictable weather. So we encourage you to delve into the tunes and enjoy the Sunday. And remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

Primavera Sound 2019: my draft schedule

As the tradition obliges, here comes one of our favourite Blog posts! Because the Primavera Sound Festival timetables' were disclosed yesterday, so the time of making our own 'path' trough the line-up has already arrived. At first sight, it doesn't look as promising as previous editions (at least for us, but that's something we knew already, sign of the times and "new normalities") but we know that one of the charms of this festival is to discover new bands... just seems that in this 2019 more than ever!
Wednesday,  May 29th, 
18:00 Melenas (Primavera)
19:10 Hatchie (Primavera)
Just two names we are really interested in for the opening day (sorry, not feeling Big Red Machine that much) but attractive enough to be there for the afternoon...

Thursday, May 30th, Parc del Fòrum
17:00 Julien Baker (Auditori Rockdelux)
18:10 Soccer Mommy (Ray-Ban)
19:00 Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks (Primavera)
21:50 Courtney Barnett (Pull & Bear)
23:15 Interpol (Seat) 
Pretty complete and straightforward day... that could have been wonderful without the clashes, a couple of them being simply terrible: Mr. Malkmus overlaps with half of Big Thief's gig, and Interpol with Guided by Voices. So, though questions to be resolved ahead. Mac DeMarco before Courtney? Mr. Pollard or a band that has returned with a very solid record after a couple of letdowns? Or even considering watching Pylon Reenacment society (also clashing with the aforementioned two)?)

Friday, May 31st, Parc del Fòrum
16:45 Lucy Dacus (Ray-Ban)
17:35 Snail Mail (Primavera)
18:30 Birkins feat Ken Stringfellow play Ziggy Stardust (Your Heineken Stage)
19:35 Kurt Vile & The Violators (Pull & Bear)
22:30 Suede (Ray-Ban)
23:50 Low (Primavera)
00:55 Kate Tempest (Ray-Ban)
Another pretty full day (why is Lucy Dacus starting that early?) with only a gap between Kurt Vile and Suede (right now leaning towards Liz Phair). Not bad on paper...

Saturday, June 1rst, Parc del Fòrum
19:15 Built to Spill (Primavera)
20:15 Me and the Bees play The Breeders (Your Heineken Stage)
22:55 Jarvis Cocker (Ray-Ban)
01:30 Stereolab (Ray-Ban)
If Jarvis doesn't save it (any of you has an idea of what kind of performance will offer to us?) this is a frustrating day. Almost nothing to be excited for until Built to Spill, which overlaps (hope just slightly) with our dear Me and the Bees. There, more emptiness (Drab Majesty?) until the Jarvis' enigma and waiting for Stereolab's time (one of the few must-see of this PS19 for us) with Primal Scream.

Sunday, June 2nd, 
18:20 Filthy Friends (Primavera a la ciutat -Barcelona)
23.30 The Beths (Sala Apolo)
And more frustration to end the Festival. Two big, mandatory acts for us (Peter Buck & Corin Tucker? They should be headliners... ALWAYS), separated by many hours and locations, damn it what a terrible schedule!

Stay tuned for further developments!!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 228

After the storm comes the calm... even the sun. So, seizing the moment (at least trying) of this splendid and spring-like weekend we bring you our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX, which not on purpose, we promise, it has an eerie, very appropriate folkie vibe alongside the regular dose of new discoveries, such as Marble Arch or Daughter of Swords, Blog beloved acts, like Witching Waves or the infallible J. Mascis paying tribute to Tom Petty... and a huge, immense plus. Because we couldn't just ignore the fact that on Friday it would have been the 100 anniversary of the great Peter Seeger, the folk myth whose tunes and social commitment are still as meaningful and powerful today as when he originally wrote/sung them. Still fighting for the turning of the seasons dear Pete, still convinced we shall overcome. Happy birthday! Enjoy the sunny days and remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud.

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 227

Have you fulfilled your duties as a responsible citizen? Already voted? As we told you, we had more songs pending in the pipeline for you! Here's our double dose of TOP TEN JUKEBOX with many more discoveries, awaiting for your listening pleasure. Who knows, if the extreme right (we have three parties here among them, so plenty to choose from) wins, or the too hip to vote left skips the elections this might be the last playlist (fascists and culture are not very good friends). So please, if you haven't already, go to the polling station and vote... for everything that all is at stake (our social and labour rights, women rights, our freedoms at risk, our welfare state & public services, the climate change....), or in short, for our future. United, we can. Have a good Sunday and remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 224

Almost two weeks have passed of our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX, fourteen days that have been one of the most stressful and sad that we have ever lived. It's never easy to say goodbye to someone you loved and raised you. But, despite the pain, we have managed to list another ten excellent songs for you to listen. Because music, like the memories, moments and the feelings shared, will always be with us, specially indie pop and jangle pop, two styles that are all around this Blog and on this week's playlist. Also, we haven't forgotten that today is the Record Store Day so, what a better way to cheer-up us than with good music? Have a nice weekend and remember all these people who's crazy enough to still release, play or even have a music store. And remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 223

After some really hard, anxious, shitty weeks full of hospitals, we can only say that WE ARE BACK. Or at least trying to get back to our normal routine and, for sure, to our beloved Blog and playlists. Because as Nietzsche would say 'without music, live would be a mistake', so here's our TOP TEN JUKEBOX. We have had more than twenty days to hear and gather new tunes, discovering some exciting bands along the way (we haven't got the time for writing, but we still listened) so we have had plenty to grab from. So, we hope you like them as much as we do, we have much more in the works (we'll do our best to not disappear for so long). And remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 222

After a busy week of work, which included transport strikes and the recurrent city collapse thanks to the Mobile Wold Congress (we'll save for another day the debate on all these macro events that, supposedly, brings all sort of wonders and euros to the cities), we are ready to start the weekend as it deserves. And that means our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX is here! A well-balanced playlist between new groups to be discovered and bands that this Blog has already fallen in love with and are returning to action with music gems, such as Egoism, Luluc or Star Tropics. So put on your "diving suit" and find the music treasures. And remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 220

After the increase of blood sugar produced by Valentine's Day, (don't get us wrong, we believe in love and affection, but we will never understand why it has to be demonstrated during a specific day by buying things to your significant other) we have arrived to a new weekend and with it we bring you our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX. Ten gems ready to be discovered and savored slowly,like the total hymn to jangle pop of Whoa Melodic, or the new Tacocat song, that for sure will make this two days off happier.

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 219

Build a wall to stop migration! Make a demonstration against a rapporteur (yet to be appointed)! Vote extreme right or/and millionaires (professional cheaters) to solve the (major, essential, pivotal) problems of inequality and distribution of wealth! Utter nonsense, bigotry and fascism, and we're afraid we, as citizens, have embraced this despicable era. The temptation to talk about politics is huge, but this weekend we're calling for a time out. Because we're about to take (momentary) shelter thanks to the Minifestival (Night Flowers, Free Cake for Every Creature and the mighty Kristin Hersh) tonight, plus we have prepared a terrific new TOP TEN JUKEBOX with several Blog beloved acts such as The Stroppies, the great Julia Jacklin covering The Strokes, I Was a King or one of the last gifts of the already missed Zach Denton alongside a bunch of exciting discoveries. Music as refuge, or as the medicine in order not to explode! Take a break and remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 218

It's been somewhat of a struggle finding the time to keep writing (life seems to be getting in their way more frequently) and maintaining a "sustainable" pace of updates at the Blog. We'll try, promise. But that doesn't mean we ain't listening to new, exciting music, ready to be gathered and packed in a flamboyant new TOP TEN JUKEBOX for your ears only. This week we have a pretty even combination of beloved names such as Martha Ffion, Shana Cleveland or She Sir, alongside most promising newcomers (with a double dose of "local product"). Plus a very special closing tune: the cover of Teenage Fanclub's 'Broken' made by fans as a way to say goodbye to founding member Gerard Love late last year. A beautiful, heartfelt tribute to someone who has been an intrinsencal part in the soundtrack of our lives (thanks Gerry). Hope you enjoy. And remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud.
