To The Net
I am about to embark to some kind of serious study when I came across this as I searched for an Avant Garde Filipino band that made a song about the most common mode of transportation here, "The Jeepney".
This is unmistakably how some computer enthusiasts might relate to. Let us support kick-ass music..Hints of Bowie, Barcelona, The Rentals, I suppose and Buggles, and Cage?

Okay now, I'm back and a feeling a little exhausted. For some reason, I could envision that this could turn out (and hit me in the face!/kick my ass!) to be the most challenging year of my life. But perhaps I will try and continue this. Well here is a trio fronted by Sarah Catharine. She's a musician, a disc jockey, an astronomer, a music lover, a painter...and who knows what else she can do. Gorgeous and a beaut, I'd say she'd be thrilled to see these tracks posted here. And because this has got to be one of the most endearing record or music I received, I'd try to be more polite in introducing and promoting this four track. Should this be called an EP? A Four-Track EP, extended play? I don't know what to call this,..but hey, I may just have to listen to this further but months have already passed and I should write about how these tracks somehow left me deadened and stuck at some point. I learned that this trio disbanded and Sarah may have to pursue her solo career.
And so without further ado, here's Even Atom from Erie, Pennsylvania. And to quote SC "Love it , hate it, like it, whatever... I know you're out (far away for miles) out there..."

Warlow for Rawbar
This sounds like when your band had a perfect day inside a practice studio or garage with a boombox standing somewhere. Recording the entire play as everyone was having each and every member of the group deeply engrossed, passionately with the skill. And though one might find it uninteresting to some who are used to hearing high or stereo mixed sound, the scout types and the prime movers or you might just call the avant-gardster types would find this very adorable and tasty since it is in its raw quality. Not that 'RAW' anyway and whoever coined that term should be shot since having to define this sound quality as 'RAW' material is an engineer somewhere or just a fellow who needed to make it sound more pleasing or better than how it sounded originally
Well, an alien shared a link for this EP. And it just is sometimes confusing for me how some musicians or producers define their outputs as EP LP Studio and Demos,, Albums, Reissues, Rehashed, Versions, Remixed, Rerecorded and bah blah bah. But there it is BARLOW. Lower the bar, bar the low, the lowest lows to the lowest lows. Lofi at its finest.

Well, this band's quite or I should say adorable. The sound that'll cheer up your gloomy days I suppose. At par with such lo-fi acts as Sentridoh, I am eternally grateful. If you got some headphones, earphones or the usual speakers at home or driving a bicycle, or a motor car, perhaps this might just calm you down and ease up some nerves.

In Bob I Trust
by Ryex Avellanosa
I can still remember the first time I bought one of my most favorite record. It was Sugar's Copper Blue. The record just felt right. The right amount of guitars that go very neat along with its other accompanying instruments. You get to feel unusually fuzzy or something. I didn't really care too much about who's behind the music back then. I later found out of course that Sugar was fronted by no other than the man himself, Bob Mould. And same as almost all Bobs, Bob Mould'd real name is Robert. Yes, his name is Robert Arthur Mould. His was a music I wouldn't mind listening for hours and over and over for days if not weeks. Well and it's not that hard to find that he was associated to some other past and present outfits. Blowoff, Husker Du, Loud Bomb, Sugar and Deep Dish to boot. That's it. Hope you're still soundtripping guys. And I would like to thank an alien from PA for the heads up. I am grateful your highness.
