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.

Company Saved

Bob and the gang will keep you preoccupied.  They're practically a non-precarious act to follow.  Robert Pollard has kept Guided By Voices the kind of band that persists on a scene where others would hesitate  This attitude has produced a lot of records, daring and magical in substance, a level unsurpassed by previous and the current generation.  With Toby on the side, GBV has made the appreciation of rock music a daily routine.

NEW Guided By Voices record Motivational Jumpsuit
Album is available for pre-order and will be released February 18th.

The Absence of Presence

Just had to say that I just heard about this band from my cousin who's currently somewhere out in Norway.   And just as I was about to dig in to their music, I learned of their frontman's demise. They were apparently releasing this album when Gary Biddles died last April.2013  Biddles also sang with the band Fools Dance and was a former roadie for the band The Cure.  Details of his death was not revealed or may have been withheld for reasons unknown. 

I am immediately drawn in to listen to some of their tunes.  This unreleased album Closer , was shared on Soundcloud last March.  They released their first album Inside in 1993.  They also have some live clips on Youtube.  They were simply neat.

Top 100

I meant to post this before reaching 2014, but was obviously  preoccupied with something else. And to compile a hundred beautiful tracks really was not an easy task.  But it's only the 5th day of the New Year anyway.  Not that anyone's gonna care, I don't even know how or why I am in a way motivated into doing this. Just the same, and considering that The Soundtripper is thriving on to reach its third year this year, perhaps it still is a necessary chore to do so.

So here are 100 tracks I kept and cherished the whole year of 2013.  Some tracks were haplessly crammed in just to reach the total number of a hundred, but was careful enough to keep the list in its best shape as possible.  If you'd try to categorize them, or wonder how I came up with such list, you'd notice with careful, persistent probe that this was divided into ten genres and mixed into the blender.  Or like preparing ten ingredients and pouring them all into the boiling pot.  Just let it steam for hours to cook.  And if you don't have anything better to do, just play on.  You might just love it.
