Unearthed, Vol. 18 : 1992 

Posted: April 25, 2022 in MUSIC

1992 Blend takes us on a kaleidoscopic trip through what they used to call “Alternative Rock” (Or College Rock? Or Indie Rock?) via a selection of dusty-but-dynamic live tapes. This stuff may be 30 years old now, but in many ways, these sounds represent a gold standard for guitar-forward rock music, finding inspiration in the past, but with eyes still fixed on the horizon. Nevermind the Buzz Bin — dig into this.
