La Discoteca

💽 Disc-o-what?
Blonde on Blonde by Bob Dylan in the movie High Fidelity.

Discoteca (Spanish)

  1. Collection of musical discs (records).
  2. Physical place to store a record collection.
  3. Nightclub

This is a collection of albums I have spent time with. I own some of them in vinyl or CD, but most I’ve kept in digital formats over the years. I’ve played some of them more than others, but I’ve given every single one my undivided attention, not all of them are worth spending time on so I created an Albums Feed that includes everything I consider worth listening to at least once in a lifetime and albums released within the last year.

Esta es mi discoteca. Welcome.

I’m currently adding notes I’ve taken in other platforms and notebooks and I’ll continue to drop at least one or two lines whenever I add an album here.

🎵 Listened to Kikagaku Moyo - Kumoyo Island [2022] ★★★

2022 · psych rock · ★★★

Kikagaku Moyo bid farewell to the world on a high note with their final album. Monaka and Gomugomu are pure dance-floor bliss.

Thank you, Japanase psych rock gurus for 10 years of great music and specially for Forest of Lost Children, which since its release and to this day I consider one of the best albums of the past decade.

#Plexamp just reminded me that 25 years ago today Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space was released and only a couple of weeks ago, Spiritualized’s 9th LP came out.

I guess you could say J. Spaceman has been making the same great songs consistently for over 3 decades or that Everything Was Beautiful is a refreshed collection of the band’s best snippets throughout an amazing discography.

1975 · minimal · ★★★½

This album came up randomly on Plexamp Radio, 15 minutes in my reaction was “What is this amazing music?!”

I looked it up and lo and behold: Brian Eno produced it. Beautiful Ethereal/Gospel absolutely worth anyone’s time.

What an amazing discovery!

“a lush, tropical experience” is the only right way to describe it and all that needs to be said about this sexy album.
