Flew and Flying
Ryan Avellanosa

This is a pretty good find. But I'm afraid I can't describe this release in full detail. Because I believe this record needs more than just a passive listening to. For lack of a better word. And I also believe that this record deserves more credit. This record was released just recently 2012 by The Flying Nuns. which I guess speaks for itself. The Flying Nuns Records was established by a record store owner who had the vision of producing music from his New Zealand descent. That move grew to what has become New Zealand rock I suppose.  You'll have to listen for yourself to know how they sounded like.  

This record has twenty tracks from twenty bands.   The 19th track, The Doublehappys' Some Fantasy stood out for me at first play. I sure hope someone would try to take heed for no one I'm afraid has anyway. I dare someone tell me which band wrote the tracks Some Fantasy.  You can find The Verlaines + Shayne Carter's version on Youtube.  Still can't tell which is better. And I yet have to listen to it more and more.

Polish Shoegaze
by Rayn de Cervantes Avellanosa

This is something different.  Something unexpected from my perspective.  They hail from Poland of all places.  No wonder they somehow or really did sounded a little strange, and for how their names sounded,  Judy's Funeral are Filip Rojek on drums, Piotr PiĆ³rkowski on guitar and vocals, and Marcin Lewandowski.  It's punk rock, with a mix of shoegaze and indie.  Just the right sound to be these days.  Though this one is released last April and is their debut  , you'd find their latest on bandcamp.

Intensive Care Unified
By: Rayn de Cervantes Avellanosa

Besides being English and having been in the music business when I was just around five months old, Wire is one of the most influential underrated bands of their generation.  The punk rock of their time was utile crucial to what has to become what indie music is today.  The early and the late 70s I'd say has produced quite a number of legendary bands such as The Ramones, The Cure, The Clash to name a few.  Some of these bands still thrive to produce music not because they ought to but because they just do.

Wire's career spanned almost for four decades now.  They have a great following considering that they drift in and out of the music scene.  Some of their fans that express fondness for the group include The Smith's Johnny Marr, Guided By Voices' Robert Pollard, Helmet's Page Hamilton, Robert Smith, Sonic Youth and R.E.M. .  This 2013 and 13th release, "Change Becomes Us" has been well received by critics and followers alike.

Bassist Kims
Released: Sept 2013

Kim Shattuck replacing Kim Deal as the new bassist, not bad at all. They're now touring everywhere I hear especially in certain parts of Europe.
