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!

THE NEXT HLFP-SAMPLER

YOU 
ARE INVITED 
TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE NEXT
HOMEMADE-LOFI-PSYCH-SAMPLER
HLFP 02: "EMBRYO THOUGHTS"

We all know that the record industry really sucks! NO!, CAPITAL LETTERS:
 
SUCKS!!!

I always wondered, how many musical jewels lie unrecognized somewhere locked away without any chance to ever see the light of day. Homemade stuff (lofi or not) or material professionally recorded in a studio and then forgotten, 'cause no label had the will/the guts to publish it. We all know those stories...
Well, listen guys: THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET HEARD.
(Not that there will be any money making be involved or a recording contract be waiting for you in the outskirts of cyber space – there won't be a prize or anything; it's all for the HONOUR and GLORY!)

And here's the deal: 
THE THEME for the next HLFP-COMPILATION is "EMBRYO THOUGHTS", and allowed are ONLY SONGS, THAT ARE RECORDED BY YOU EXCLUSIVELY for that compilation!

THE RULES are easy:
1. Record (or choose) an until now unreleased track (of yours), that you think fits in to the given THEME and send it to me (best with some info) as an mp3 track (send to: mike-floyd@gmx.de).
2. Each artist/band only ONE track, please.
3. The song shouldn't be longer than 10 MIN. (Of course it can be shorter!)
4. Sound quality is not that important, but it should be listenable.
5. NO COVER SONGS of any kind. YOU must be the copyright holder.
6. DEADLINE is in 3 weeks = Fr. 15th, August 2008.
7. Have fun!

Thanks a lot to Torstn Kauke from http://unpop-media.blogspot.com/ for the great idea!
