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!

IMPRESSUM: see here!

WHO KNOWS THAT BAND?

  • I wonder if anybody of you psych - prog lovers can help me.
  • Many years ago a friend of mine gave me a tape with some great music. Sadly the sound quality is bad and even worse: he had no idea WHAT BAND it was.
  • MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME?
  • The music here is some kind of progressive jazz and soul influenced rock circa 1970 until 1974, I presume. There were only 4 songs on that tape, no titles, but I made up some titles for myself (corresponding to the sung lyrics). Timings approximately:
  • 1. "Get Yourself Together, know where you're going" (?) - 10.25; 2. "I'm Crying for myself" (?) - 7.10; "Why? - The milk of human kindness" (?) - 13.30; "Please, if you know who I am – Blind man" (?) - 7.30.
  • Style: The music is mostly slow with some uptempo passages with a lot of hammond organ, flute, saxophone, some harp, bass, drums and a male singer with a soul voice (black singer?). I can't notice any guitar. 
  • The music reminds me of BRAINTICKET's "Places of Light", of course with a soul voice. I really love that stuff.
  • ANY IDEA?

  • (Link removed.) The mystery has been solved thanks to AndiKaro!!!
  • It's the UK band WARM DUST: "And It Came to Pass" (1970).
  • Highly recommended!
