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!

Radagast Project (GER. 1992-2000)

RADAGAST PROJECT was/is the psychedelic folk project of former PEACE'N'STUFF bass & flute player Christof Köhler (aka Koehler, aka CK – listen to tr. 8 on the HLFP 01 sampler!). The recordings you find here go back to the period between 1992 and 2000.
1. Snake River (1992) - 6.38
Part of a song/sound collage called "The Snake Song", this piece somewhat follows the music of German classical space krautrockers BETWEEN. It's really a hybrid of late 80s/early 90s New Age sounds and 70s krautrock with eastern influences.
2. C & A - 5.07
Here CK forms a cosmic folk duo with legendary busker ANDI PAULO, posted here recently. This song was written and recorded on 4-track-tape recorder in Heidelberg, Germany, around 1995.
3. Radagast - 8.41
Kind of a whimsical space folk theme with none-too-serious lyrics telling the story of the infamous Lord Of The Rings character.
4. Kalte Liebe - 5.45
A demo from the aborted "Roy Rohrbach" folk opera, recorded in Heidelberg in 2000 on 4-track; this is a song with a rather dark mood, with flute & vocals panicking (in the original greek meaning of the word). There are evident ROY HARPER influences and there's lots of early PINK FLOYD octave bass pumping in the instrumental parts, a wild spanish guitar in the middle – and thank God you probably won't understand the lyrics... Also brings to mind the acoustic side of the 1st "Dance of the Lemmings" LP of AMON DÜÜL 2.

If you like german psychedelic folk in the style of FIT & LIMO or you enjoyed the ANDI PAULO post not too long ago, you should definitly have a listen to this stuff. Recommended!

Hi Gordon!
Just visited your Myspace site, and I think your stuff sounds pretty interesting.

So if you want it posted here, it would be great, if you could upload the mentioned cd-r (on rapidshare, easyshare or whatever), best including artwork and some info about your bandproject – and send me the link.
