"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!

The People's Tongue - present Sonny Bono's Favorites (USA 2007)

  • Now please prepare yourself for sheer madness! This will probably be the weirdest mixture of sounds and noises, that you've ever heard...
  • My personal favorite track is "Tesla Cow Nerve Ion": some hawaiian slide guitar pasted above screaming, cow noises, some strange voices and a heavily distorted slo-mo drum track – and that description doesn't even come close to the sound chaos unfolding inside your brain while listening to this song.
  • OK, the concept to feature a collection of one-minute-songs on one record is not that new. THE RESIDENTS did this already on their Commercial Album a long time ago. But, so what? This stuff here is even weirder than THE RESIDENTS, though similarities do exist. And another reference point is of course Frank Zappa and the bizarre humour of the Beastie Boys maybe. Anyway: This here is great, great fun! There is so much to discover; and it surely was a lot of work to assemble all those different sounds and voices. For more info and more bizarre listening adventures look here.
  • Enjoy!
