"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.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Maurice Rickard - Guitar Clouds/Live: Circuits of Steel Tour (USA 2003)

  • Two more recordings of MAURICE RICKARD (see earlier post), this time live from the year 2003.
  • "Guitar Clouds" was recorded in Pittsburgh, PA and "Live – Circuits Of Steel Tour 2003" in Chicago, St. Louis and Muncie. Maurice Rickard is playing some strange guitar sounds above an electronically processed backing, including some samplings, evoking dreamlike soundscapes, sometimes quite relaxing, other times more unnerving.
  • Some passages are even reminding slightly of ROBERT FRIPP's and BRIAN ENO's electronic works/frippertronics. Though not extremely disturbing I'd say this work probably could be termed as dark ambient.  (Is this "A VISIT TO THE DARK SIDE - Pt. II"?)
  • Please check out Maurice Rickard's site and support the artist.
