HOMEMADE LOFI PSYCH --- WHERE TO START?





"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!


I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.

Sorry!

Sacred Shrines – Hung Up On Your Wall (AUSTRALIA 2014) Video



"Hung Up on your Wall," taken from their recent 7 inch release.


"We're a psychedelic band based in Brisbane, Australia and are currently working on our debut record.  We also recently supported The Dandy Warhols on their Australian tour.

We would be stoked if you would check out our latest clip."

Nice piece of retro psychedelic from Australia, that reminds me of some of the stuff that I used to do with my friends in the old days ... You know, get into the right mood and get dressed in strange costumes and make a Super-8-movie to be projected against the wall during the next gig.
Well, those were the days, my friends! But has it really changed that much?
Obviously not. And that is great!

Rangers - Session Man (USA 2014)


RANGERS from Texas has a new album out on bandcamp for streaming or purchase.

As the older blog readers probably will remember I'm a big fan of RANGERS' work, especially his early, quite lofi collage recordings (still available here on HLFP).
This new release Session Man is much more structured but still excellent and simply beautiful. And it still has that special guitar sound that I enjoy so much.

If you don't know RANGERS yet you should really check him out. If you do know him already you surely will do so anyway.

Enjoy!
And support the artists featured on HLFP!

Here are a couple of YouTube-videos:

RE-UP by Request: Captain Fartfish And His Careful Muffins - Live, Woodstöckchen 1987 (GER.)

CAPTAIN FARTFISH AND HIS CAREFUL MUFFINS was a psychedelic jam band from Germany, operating between 1987 and 1989 in the Odenwald area near Darmstadt. The three man band was heavily influenced by ZAPPA (especially Zappa's guitar playing – and also his humor), CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND HIS MAGIC BAND (around his most experimental phase, 1969) and Free Rock/Free Jazz (in the mood of early GURU GURU for example).
What makes this band so special is the excellent guitar playing of both Holger B. and Daniel P. Caesar (later SUPERKING & THE FIRE ACTIONORANGE among others). It's most of the time quite heavy (the brilliant "Shotokan") and/or very experimental ("Little Insects...", "... Deep Sea Fish").

Another weapon especially for this gig here was the trombone played in an unnerving Free-Jazz-CAPTAIN BEEFHEART-style ("The Captain Whips It Out"...).

The Woodstöckchen (= Little Woodstock) was a small (private party) underground festival, May 1987, in some vineyards near Heppenheim an der Bergstraße. Imagine an improvised stage in front of a small crowd of chatty stoned local freaks in the sunshine and you will get the picture...

Entropicodone - Heat Sap (Video, USA 2014)


Lu from BLEED STONE contacted me recently:

"I moved to athens and have been in a bunch of different bands and doing bleed stone stuff again. I've got a bunch of material. I have a noise drone psych thing, Entropicodone with a record coming out and thought of send it to you first now that I see your site is up. Here's a video from first song."

Quite promising!

Enjoy!
