Best Songs of the Year 2018: 100-76

It's time! After the lists of EPs and Records of the year, now is time to beging unveiling our Best Songs of 2018! If you are a regular follower of the Blog (maaany thanks), you'll probably know the 'rules', but for newcomers and people in need of a "refreshment", here they are. A) We always divide our favourite 100 tunes in four different posts of 25 songs each. B) In previous editions, we limited the maximum number of songs a group/artist could have overall to three, but as 2018 has been a particularly ‘rich’ year, full of exciting tunes from many acts, this year we have reduded to just two (with one sole exception). C) Bands/artists can only have one tune per round. And, of course, we compile the songs on playlists, so you can enjoy them as many times as you like. So, without further delay, here are the tunes comprised between 100 and 76! Hope you enjoy our selection. And stay tuned, next round coming very soon!

100.Yo Los He Visto- Hazte Lapon

Primavera Sound 2019: first impressions

We're back! Fresh from our break... and surprised with the announcement, almost out of the blue (at least for us, but we are guessing the amount and caliber of certain headliners by certain Festivals within the country might have had something to do) of the Primavera Sound's line-up 2019. So let's dive in...

Labelled as the #NewNormal and heralded as the perfect encounter between the 'state of music', parity and the trademark eclecticism of the Festival, there's a bit to be annoyed for. First, why now? Getting involved in the parity debate looks kind of  'too little, too late'. But hey, better late than never. You are welcome. The worst part, if you ask us, is that there's a feeling of a worrying marketing product created (that video doesn't help) as an excuse to justify a roster that, at first glimpse, lacks some substance and exciting names, replaced by extremely lame (being very polite) and mainstream trends that (product placement alert, product placement alert) behind cool (music genre?) terms such as Urban are eager to sell sneakers, hats, glasses or tracksuits.   

But at the same time, and despite some huge misses that we thought almost granted, like Robert Forster (new album and European tour in Spring), The Chills (one of the records of 2018) and Sharon Van Etten (although I'm very scared of the new album judging by first tunes), there's quite a lot to be excited for, in particular the amazing return of Stereolab, the unexpected gig of Filthy Friends (Primavera, if you are having Peter Buck & Corin Tucker in Barcelona why don't you ask them for more, in any of their multiple incarnations) and the chance of seeing live some of the artists responsible for the best LPs of 2018, like Lucy Dacus or Soccer Mommy.

As always, this is just the Blog's first impression. We are happy it seems this Primavera's edition recovers the traditional vast offer in what regards to the 'middle and small class', so we are certain we are about to 'discover' several proposals to add to 'our' Festival routes. So, all in all, let's honour the Blog’s tradition: here’s our rough paint & colour' version of 2019 line-up with the bands we are willing to see. Suggestions are welcomed and as always, a lot to listen ahead!!

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 213

Yes, the month of 'polvorones' (shortbread cookies) and reflections has arrived. December is about to start, and with the last month is also time for the weekend which, for us, also means another desired disconnection, as we are taking some days off. But don't worry, that doesn't mean we aren't warming engines (and getting ready our neurons) for our beloved and traditional best of the year lists. Or that we haven’t prepared our latest TOP TEN JUKEBOX, fresh and ready to knock you out with the newest discoveries we have enjoyed the most lately. So, while we are off, have a listen & a good time, don't miss us much and remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

The Bloodbuzzed Jukebox Week 212

As the wise man said, 'when the going gets weird, the weird turns pro' (the Good Ol' Doctor Gonzo, if you are asking). Shame at the Congress, shame at the courts, traditions (happy Thanksgiving American friends) packed with the Black Friday nonsense (cultural imperialism courtesy of capitalism)... we need a time out. And, for this Blog, there's no better tool for a break than exciting new music awaiting to be discovered, such as our new TOP TEN JUKEBOX. Ten tunes to disconnect from the madness and enjoy the weekend as it deserves. Take care and remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)

A pretty eclectic and varied playlist, full of new discoveries from around the world to deal with this challenging November. And remember, all the songs are available at our Soundcloud. (Join Us!)
