the debut of the viagra boys is, if not the top, one of the top3 records of 2018 for me.
i love the energy and the sound, i love that horn/bass saxophone/tumba whatever that thing is. i love the songs.

in the tape you ll find the song that is probably the least representative of the album. i d advice to listen to the whole album, if you re not interested, do at least hear another song, lets say "just like you" or "shrimp shack" so you ll get a good taste of what this is about.

the one i choose is called

viagra boys -worms
the only place i could find this track streaming is on spotify:

not much to say about this. it's one of my all-time beloved groups, scottish (then called)
post-rockers Mogwai in a another-day-in-the-job soundtrack. this track here i kinda liked but mostly i used it as a bridge between viagra boys and the last track of the tape.

dont bother with this soundtrack, if you wanna listen to a recent mogwai album i d rec 2017's Every Country's Sun, if you just wanna listen to Mogwai try young team, ep+6 rock action/my father my king ep or basically anything until mr. beast...

mogwai -scrap

not sure if the soundcloud link will play so:

you wouldnt call this an important album whatever that means. but its an overall good album and a highly entertaining one, i have a good time listening to it. i recommend you hear it. i changed my mind between 3-4 tracks (already gone, red light, golden flower) of its 7 in total and finally decided to put:

wooden Shjips -staring at the sun

yes! west seems to be their great album. well i havent heard them all, but west is great.
v feels like a more low stakes album but its very warm and laid back and cheerful. you could say its inferior than west but, give it a listen,you ll have a good time.


back to the tape and its closing time:
the last track comes from another all time favorite band but this one produced a(nother) great album. Spiritualized may sometimes repeat themselves (or should i say himself?) but i dont really mind at this level of quality. the album grows better as it goes, i think its best tracks are all in its 2nd side. Pierce said this is going to be their last album and he seems to truly believe that so maybe this also gives a bit extra weight to it. i was sure that Spiritualized would close this tape, i just didnt know which track, i was between "damaged" and "the prize". i decided on the prize cuz i think it sounds a little more... well optimistic

spiritualized -the prize

And Nothing Hurt was the best guitar rock album of 2018 and maybe since 2010

agreed about 2018. at least one ofe the 2-3 best. about the decade i dont know, havent thought about it..

closing the tape i want to show you the outside: on the cover theres a frame of this strip here. i thought about this tape as "fresh" when i was making it so at some point that caesar line came to my mind (its also the title of a book-collection of boondocks strips) i had the intention of changin '01 with '19 but then i got bored and left it as it was.

i dont know how famous the boondocks were/are in usa. at their peak it seems that they were printed in a huge number of newspapers all over the country, but still i dont know... i consider them to be a pretty important (and also entertaining) comic strip. especially their book "a right to be hostile" that covers the pre and after 9/11 era. at this point the strip turned heavily political. when browsing through it i many times wonder how is it possible that such a thing got through with beeing published to mainstream media at this period of time..

Nice to see this. I've often said that people here should have Mixcloud accounts.
The amount of detail given about the construction of only an hour of music is funny,
but at least the talk is about music. I think my 4 posts about 14 hours of good things
from 2018 was a restrained version of this (and a few of the same releases, I think).
