Gravity is Up
by RC /\vellanosa

You won't believe how I managed to have bought a compact disc copy of this particular album.  You won't believe how I fought to have my friends listen with me throughout.  Somehow it wasn't that interesting to them.  So I was happy to play along with a CD player.  Yes, a CD player.  And the USB flash drive isn't that affordable before.  I bought a 128MB flash that cost me more than a thousand pesos.  Wow! Those were the days.  These were the days to transcend.

No wonder it's radio-friendly yet still unheard of. Though am not sure it's not that tasty down here.  For the shoegazey types and the hipster nineties (90s) rocker, this band os one of those that emerged in the shoegaze alternative rock scene.  But this find is quite rare.  Listen on.

Love my superstitious games Running circles round my brain when I'm left smiling I love to steal this living steam My head in someone's dream I'm tired of sleeping Call me crank, my idea Crank, so superior Crank, my conscience clear I build my canopy of steel It fulfills my sense of real A chrome protection Call me crank, my idea Crank, so super Crank, my conscience clear It's clear In this small partition, like a prison Explode time bomb If you know where I come from You call me crank, my idea Crank, so super Crank, my conscience clear Please call me crank, it's what I need Crank, my mind in seed Crank, my dream complete Lay down, lay down, lay down 

01. Crank
02. Black Metallic

The Zip


Melancholic Whiny
by RC /\vellanosa

As usual, am at this usual state of soundtripping once again.  This time it's a band called Siakol.  You know how it is when you won't have to keep listening to bands that's homegrown , almost at the nearest grasp yet still unheard of from somewhere.  Since it sometimes is considered as bland and too obvious.  It might just be the same as elsewhere perhaps.  American and other Non-Filipino bands must have gotten tired of listening to music which sprouted from their nearest shores, they had to keep abreast of of other music beyond.  Well, perhaps it needs to be that way or we'll end up bored or somewhat so immobile of you know what I mean.  No wonder we see more Non-Filipinos around here.  I've seen more of them on the streets than before.  Even speaking our own languages which is funny and surprising at the same time.

But here is a music which can keep you longing for home if you are out of the country,  Or it may just confuse you if you're from around here.  The Philippines. Well, I won't have to describe this fine piece of music.  It's just like listening to a friend drinking somewhere or a neighbor which you can keep pestering and do not mind, do not mind ever at all.  Or do they?

I've Detect 
by Ryan Cervantes Avellanosa

It is pronounced as Detective and can be spelled as DTCV.   You know how it is when you are feeling quite down or unusually happy or upset.  Either way, this music does rock.  It's quite profound and perky kind of like somebody's marshmallow prize.

And am not sure how to say about new music like these.  It's Breeders-ish/The Vaselines-ish.  It's another treat,  Wow, just wow.

See The Light
by Ryan Avellanosa

Well, there goes Chris again, again.  He goes around again.  His voice resonates.  And as he continued to go solo on his musical career, I hear more acoustics and melody.  The harmony which he keeps like a memory that loops and loops, never forgotten.  Almost natural if not in every way.  His music which reflects the continuing reflection of how life should be lived in continuous reflection of one's life.  He's like singing like he'd be gone away any day soon.  Taking everything, cherishing everything.  Amazing album Chris.

un/Feminist Rants
by RC Avellanosa

This is sweet.  It has been a long time since and it is exciting  to hear some new tunes from Violent Femmes.   "Issues" is the catchiest.  They pretty much sound the same just like the way they were before.  And it feels just like home again, or some place familiar and comforting.  I'm not sure but this just hit it home.

Well, I know I have heard this upcoming release,  I never thought it'll come this early.  Well, at some point it's bound to happen anyway.  Well I found this on Spotify.  Meaning I had to resort to this new thing.  The Spotify thing.    Well I think everyone is at their fighting stances mode.  And it will take more than a distraction to try to calm the things that go berserk wild these days.  It just might be that a generation has just tipped the balance to the point of realizing things that has to change or stay the way it was.

Spotify Stupefied
by Ryan/\/ Avellanosa

Youtube is fine, Vimeo is pleasing, Grooveshark is down, Soundcloud is great, and Spotify is unbelievable.  And I found out  hmm probably around a month ago that Genius is merging with Spotify.  This has been very awesome.  Just too awesome, that they even offered free Premium version.

I'm still not sure how to describe this group, this recording, this set of songs.  It's almost psychologically unnecessary to do so these days. With the season... the election season here and there.. campaigns everywhere. the cacophony of positive vibrations, and the clash of truth.   Say what you want, say what you will. this is cool and calming,, peaceful and serene..sing , sing sing.

I make it a point somehow these days not to listen too much from artists from the past especially the most famous.  And because I was made to do so, it probably is the only way to appreciate music, partly.. that I should listen more about the present or to which the present has imparted us with,  The Music Presence, the presence of Music.  But what about those that which gave us the most wondrous songs, incomparable and too distinct not to notice?  And that was the records are for?  To play it over and over and over again.

I must admit that I am really not into David Bowie, though I know he's too influential not to know.  And I can only name a few of the favorite songs he wrote like...Heroes, Ziggy Stardust and Thursday's Child.  Yes, Thursday's Child was one of the songs I had to play after learning of his demise. His demise which some would deny to have happened. Truly an icon.  Bye Mr. David Beau..oh ..David Bowie.
