Intro of sorts, this blog is just a look at the past, present & future of the assorted music released by bands & artists in the Philippines & the numerous ones based outside the motherland...from Rock, Reggae, Alternative, Folk, Indiepop, Electronica, New Wave, Goth, Punk, etc. Well, some did ask me, why do I have to call it POP...'my music is this and that and it's anything but' you might say...well, click here for the reason. Anyway, turn up the volume!

Waiting in Anticipation...for New Music...

I was just thinking of some upcoming or future releases and re-issues and recent albums and EPs and wondered about the music...will the songs sound great?...will the artwork be nice?...How will the inner sleeves look? Will the music be memorable?

Anticipation for new music is always good for a collector...it keeps you on your toes. At times, some of the releases are very hard to track down. Even if you live in Manila, when there's no distribution for the band's albums or EPs, you just have to ask around and sometimes go directly to the band and get a copy from them. Also, networking with other collectors works wonders, unless they're the secretive type and brags about having a copy but never helps other music aficionados acquire a copy, which in my book is a bit stupid. How can they help the artists sell more music if you don't tell other people where to get them, duh?!

Anyway, these are the ones that I came across through emails, gossip, eavesdropping on some birds chit chat or official and unofficial emails from all over...some were released last year but I never had a chance to hear or buy them...write some of the titles down and hunt with me soon...buying all of them in one go is next to impossible so anticipating on its release and getting a copy one at a time is the best way to go....

i am not sure if spring boutique will change their name to the springs/springs or whatever. i don't know why they have to change the name. i hope they'd stick to spring boutique.

Lokomotiv - not impessed. its an okay album i guess. maybe if i dont know or knew about Wolfgang then id probably have a different opinion. i guess bias ako kasi Wolfgang fan ako.

Red Lilly, Stella's Notch EPs, Solo EP - pretty impressive. vocals, style, & music magaling! 2 of her solo works (Blown Away & Wounded) she re-did with Stella's Notch. melody-wise hindi nag bago pero mas naging lively w/ the addition of diff. instruments.
