"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!

Milman-Brignall Enigma - Bafflemania (excerpt; US 2006)

Matt Brignall sent me this psychedelic masterpiece and asked me to post it, if I liked it. And sure, I do!
MILMAN-BRIGNALL ENIGMA recorded this stuff in a very long period of time. When the record finally came out, the band only played one gig: the record release showcase. For personal reasons it was not possible for them to tour at that time, so the album was never properly promoted.

The MBE were based in Seattle, WA., and lasted from about 2000 until 2006. The basic line-up consisted of: Al Milman: voc., Matt Brignall: a lotta different instruments (like sitar, banjo, mellotron, tone generator, guitars...), Dan Israel: dr, Jack Endino (who also produced the record as well as records by NIRVANA, SOUNDGARDEN and MUDHONEY): bs and David Will: keyboard & back. voc.. 
"BAFFLEMANIA is an intoxicating mixture, incorporating psychedelia (...), ragabilly, a new blend of Indian and C&W (...), with hints of modern jazz, a collision of garage rock & Brubeck (...), delivered with a large dose of humor." (Quote from CD Baby). Nothing more to add. Enjoy!

And if you like the music, PLEASE SUPPORT THE ARTISTS! You can buy the complete record at CD Baby for only 9,99 USD.
