"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!

Orange Is In - Another Lame Semi-Tragedy (USA 2006)

  • George Kovacik, the singer from ORANGE IS IN (no connection to the german psych band ORANGE b.t.w.!), sent me a mail and asked me to post this recording if I liked it. Well, I do – though the music of ORANGE IS IT is neither psychedelic nor lofi. It's straight-forward powerful American contemporary rock, featuring the strong voice of Kovacik that is reminding somehow of Bruce Springsteen and also Elvis Costello. (But so what? I mean, one can't listen to UMMAGUMMA all the time...)
  • The band formed in 2002 and is from Houston, TX, where they seem to have won quite a lot of fans as a very good live band. "Another Lame Semi-Tragedy" is their first full-lenght CD. They also have a newer recording out, "Come and Take It", from July 2007. Sadly the very competent violinist Amy Price has left the band recently.
  • If you like the band, PLEASE SUPPORT THE ARTISTS! Check out their offical site and Myspace.
