09012016 - Red Rider "As Far as Siam"
I know next to nothing about this band or their history, save for the fact that they were (and apparently still are) fronted by Tom Cochrane, whom I remember for that one song . This album, released in 1981, opens with "Lunatic Fringe" , which is a pretty g...

08012016 - David Bowie "★"
David Bowie releases his 25th album today, on his 69th birthday. There's 7 songs on this album. 25 + 69 + 7 = 101. In George Orwell's book " 1984 " Room 101 is a torture chamber where prisoners are faced with their own worst fears. David Bowie himself relea...

07012016 - Peach Kelli Pop "Peach Kelli Pop III"
The stuff you find on other people's best of-lists... This one turned up at #36 on a friend's list , and it looked cute and inviting enough to make me interested. The album is short and sweet , oozing bubblegum fuzz pop with just the slightest hint of garag...

06012016 - Marulk "Marulk"
Today I'm wearing a t-shirt with the Swedish band Skogen Brinner , and if you're into cool hard rock you should check them out. It's that easy. Since they don't have anything new out at the moment I decided to see what my streaming player considers to be si...

05012016 - Robin Trower "Bridge of Sighs"
Another day, another classic album criminally overlooked by yours truly. This was Trower's second solo album, released in 1974, back when I was all of 1 year old. I guess that means I'm excused for not discovering it at the time, but not for waiting all of ...

04012016 - Daniel Romano "If I've Only One Time Askin'"
One from the best of 2015 lists here, and a durn good 'un too! This is pure and lovely heartfelt old school country music like Hank, Merle and Willie taught us. Romano's voice is more than a little on the Willie Nelson side too, not that there's anything wr...

03012016 - Kenny Rogers "The Gambler"
Kenny Rogers is one of many artists more known for his songs than any of his albums. At least that's the case for me, so as far as I'm concerned this is how it is. "The Gambler" is, of course, not only one of his best songs, but his version is one of the be...

02012016 - Hallows Eve "Tales of Terror"
One of my favourite things about doing this blog, where every single day I listen to an album that I have never heard before, is finding old metal albums that I've been aware of for ages , but never got around to checking out the first time around. Especial...

01012016 - Raspberry Bulbs "Privacy"
So... Another year and a new attempt to maintain this blog. Let's see how long I last this time around . First out is an album I have no ida at all how ended up on my radar. It's relatively short, clocking in at just over half an hour, and neither album cov...

25092015 - Kurt Vile "B'lieve I'm Goin Down"
Kurt Vile is cool. Way cool! Listen to the first song here, and if you don't like it, we don't have anything else to talk about. If you do, you'll love all of this album and the rest of Vile's output too. He keeps referencing other artists both lyrically an...
