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!

Leonel Garcia - Wooden Flower, Water And Air (2007 Puerto Rico, re-recorded version)

I downloaded this record some time ago from ChrisGoesRock, but somehow had forgotten how good it is.
Then LEONEL GARCIA suprised me with a brillant song, called "Neurogenesis (First Thoughts)", for the second HOMEMADE-LOFI-PSYCH SAMPLER HLFP 02 "EMBRYO THOUGHTS", and it was then that I realized I surely had to check out more of his stuff...
LEONEL GARCIA from Puerto Rico is yet another one of those guys who writes and records alone at home in on his own equipment in true homemade-lofi spirit. He usually plays every instrument and publishes web-only-release albums year after year. And pretty good stuff is among it, mostly in neo-psychedelic style, but he surely isn't confined to only one musical direction.
It's hard to pick out single songs from that album here to discuss them, because they all are very good. Anyway, my favourite tracks are: "Fuzzy Toys of Old", "Pipe Riders" and "Madcap", but the complete album is well worth a listen – and a very good example for contemporary neo-psychedelic music, that does not try to simply copy old psychedelic sounds, but succeeds in creating something uniquely new.
This here is the re-recorded version. The original version will be available for download  here in the near future or go and check it (and more of Leonel's albums) out at his own blog.
