💿La Discoteca

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

Discoteca is the Spanish word for a record collection. This feed includes albums I have spent time with and consider must be listened to at least once in a lifetime (and releases from 2022).

Kumoyo Island
Kikagaku Moyo
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.

💿 La Discoteca: Spiritualized - Everything Was Beautiful [2022] ★★★½

Everything Was Beautiful
Spiritualized
2022 · art rock · ★★★½

#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.

The Sinking of the Titanic
Gavin Bryars
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.
