Juana Giaimo is from Buenos Aires, Argentina. In this blog, she mainly writes about music, but sometimes she also posts about books and almost never about her personal life (though she considers this her personal blog). Last year she started the Best Albums Project and feels very proud about it. She also writes about lyrics for The Music Writers Collective and she enjoys it a lot.
Juana likes to be called Juana.
First thing you have to know: the list for the Best Albums of 1999was the last list of the year for the Best Albums Project. I know you are all crying right now, but I have good reasons for it that mainly consist of what I’ll write in the following bullets.
Did you really think that I’ll stop listening to albums just like that? From this right moment I’m starting the list for the Best Albums of 2012! You can start recommending me albums released or that will be realeased in 2012! December 8th is my deadline! I want you to recommend me not one or two albums, but if each of you have in mind 20 albums, I’ll listen to the 20 of them.
I started writing for another blog, yay! It’s called Lo-Fi Music Blog and you can follow it on Tumblr and Twitter if you want. I’ll write a weekly album review for it and the good thing is that it’s something very different to what I do in Blue Sky + Hard Rock.
I’m starting to listen to really new bands (like Joanna Gruesome, Playlounge, Animal Astronauts and, my favorite, Afro Darlings), mainly because my monthly column on the online magazine of BS + HR is about new bands. So, if you have a band or you know a cool new band or musician that you think I should listen, I would definitely love to check them out!
This is just a little clue for an awesome interview i could get for the next issue of the BS + HR magazine: What do Beck and The Shins have in common?
