The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 293

A bit late in August, but we are about to disconnect for a couple of weeks to have our (deserved, much needed) holidays. But before we hit the road, we have gathered a last-minute yet pretty ace TOP TEN JUKEBOX. Full of wonders and surprises, it has a bit of everything. Heavyweight covers, a couple of stunners (what a comeback by Big Red Machine and dear Courtney), inspired friends returning in impeccable form (opener Persian Leaps), exciting newcomers... even two "Eddie Vedders"! A lot to listen, for sure. Have a nice Sunday, a great end to the month, we'll see you all in mid-September. And remember to join us at our Soundcloud page!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 292

Two much time without our TOP TEN JUKEBOX. Obviously, we could blame routine, work and some other factor but... there's a main and positive reason: we are moving! Or better said, in the midst of the process, dealing with the real estate market in Barcelona (one day we can dedicate a "chapter" to it), mortgage analysis and the never ending documentation required. Incredibly time-consuming...  But we don't want to bore you, or even sound slightly down, as we are very excited about our decision. So we took some time off from paper-work and decided to bring you an ace soundtrack for this burning August days. Have a nice Sunday, and remember to join us at our Soundcloud page!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 291

June has begun with odd visits to el Vallés (long story that might have additional chapters), expensive ticket upgrades for... the next year, and that terrible Barcelona weather where you can forget to get any sleep. Luckily, music continues to be the oasis to this madness, as our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX proves. A fine and moody mixture of well-beloved names (Goats, Iron and Wine, the killer returns of Floodlights and Nation of Language) plus an exciting dose of new finds. Take a break, enjoy the songs, and remember to join us at our Soundcloud page!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 290

The downward spiral never ends. Looking at the state of current affairs, it's a disastrous week, with scenes we are, shamefully, used to see in Gaza, plus a despicable situation at the Spanish Southern border. Seriously depressing stuff. Luckily (what an incredible contrast), the music week has been stunning, a rare TOP TEN JUKEBOX where tunes just seem to flourish for you to grab. To the usual dose of discoveries (including a jangly gem in German!) a coalition of heavyweights has aligned to the rescue, crowned by the reunion of Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen, a dream come true. Take a break, enjoy the songs, and remember to join us at our Soundcloud page!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 289

Extremely contradictory times (yes, we're being euphemistic) out there. Freedom is to be found in alcohol, the ugliest face of neoliberalism needs police repression "to show" how liberty flourishes...  and the right to self-defense means bombing other's territory. More than enough to drive you crazy. We don't pretend to have a solution here. But at least we can offer you a way to disconnect, or at least entertain yourself for a while, with the tunes gathered in our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOXPeace signs... Hope you enjoy, and remember to join us at our Soundcloud page!
