"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!

Damaged Tape - Electric Ocean (US 2004)

Another cool recording of Dr. Schluss' electronic project DAMAGED TAPE. "These recordings are actually my first serious attempts at electronic music, and I'm still very happy with them for the most part. They have a groovy dirty analog sound that I dig, and I've never been able to make music quite so AIR-like (as in the French band) since I made this stuff." (Quote from Dr. Schluss).
I absolutely agree, though I also can detect a strong KLAUS SCHULZE and TANGERINE DREAM influence. This stuff is great. I like it even more than his other, newer electronic release "Stone God". The only thing I have to critizise: Some of the tracks could be a little bit longer (first of all my favourite song "Space-Time Tear".
(Quality & Trip O Meter: 4 out of 5.)

As always, thanks for posting this! Yeah, the songs are a little short. Since I recorded on 4-track and by myself I'd start with the sequences for most of the tracks and it would seem like five minutes but it was in fact under two minutes. Selah!
