Bram Tchaikovsky ‘Strange Man, Changed Man’

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#813 in the Series) is  Bram Tchaikovsky, Strange Man Changed Man The legend says: ¨A long time ago, a bunch of bored cavemen, hungry of fun and sex, invented Rock´n´Roll…¨ It must be true, and we must be grateful:  they invented something of the same transcendence as the Ferris wheel; one of the most proteiform and free examples of contemporary art. Did I say art? Yes, maybe the 8th form! Along there with Music, but with its own singular status. Joyously alive, always changing, the perfect constant motion machine. This album is one of the finest examples of the genre. Sadly overlooked, it condensed in itself all of the stamina and the joie...

Lori Carson ‘Everything I Touch Runs Wild’

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#809 in the Series) is Lori Carson, Everything I Touch Runs Wild  Of all the foggy things that I remember well about the days of the turn of the century, one of them is the music the some friends and I were listening … You know, it was 2000, 2001: bonfires, lasers, champagne, lovers, the Y2K paranoia, and the mist of it all. I was happy as a child then, living in a little country town far from Buenos Aires: a strange, petit city plenty of smart and cosmopolitan people by those years. It was full moon, in a marvelous and calm summer night, and we were anticipating the celebration with full blast...

Crucis “Los Delirios del Mariscal”

Posted 23 Jul 2012 in Albums of 1977, Albums of the 70s, Prog-Rock

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#740 in the Series) is Crucis, Los Delirios del Mariscal  It was, I remember, 1977 or 1978… And I was a very young teen, listening to radio in the wee hours. The sadly departed Juan Alberto Badía, a well known local radio deejay and journalist, launched to the air a piece of music of mesmerizing quality: dark, atmospheric… a very slow and subtle crescendo, full of drama, that ended up in a climax of supreme, powerful musical quality. It was Crucis.  And it was a piece called ¨Los Delirios del Mariscal¨ (¨Marshall´s Delirium¨, or something like that). One of the masterpieces of Argentinean prog rock and, in my humble opinion, on par...

Roger Powell “Air Pocket”

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#738 in the Series) is Roger Powell, Air Pocket One of my favourites Sunday morning pastimes is the ¨catch-an-obscure-and-great lp¨ from the sales bin… Buenos Aires is fascinating in this respect: a big city, music lovers everywhere, lots of people with a great insight in local and foreign artists… Sometimes, something beautiful emerges from those dusty used lp´s bins And this one is a real gem… From the sleeve´s art (some distorted and pixelated video image), to the assorted keyboard juggernaut, the album screams 1980. Not 1979, not 1983. 1980. Why?  Well… in my subconscious, the period 1980/1981-82 was the epitome of the purest eighties zeitgeist: modernity without mannerism… and a lot...

Welcome to ‘Cool Album of the Day!’

Posted 28 Nov 2010 in

JUST WHAT IS THIS SITE ALL ABOUT? Here’s what we’re doing.  Everyday at noon, I toss out an album, say a few things about. Tell a story connecting to it if I know one. Give you a little history about it etc.  I’m not really doing reviews. Do you need a review of something 30 years old? I think not. Hopefully, I’ll hit on a memory for you. Or possibly enlighten you about something you didn’t know. I’ll usually have some videos of songs from the album. Sometimes live videos, but not always. I also will attach a few bonus videos when I can.  They have something to do with the act featured but often not directly with that...
