"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!

Microgramma Medium Extended - Live Koeln 2002 (GER)

Recorded live at the BREAD & BUTTER fashion offshow in Cologne, Germany, in 2002. The experimental band MICROGRAMMA MEDIUM EXTENDED was booked for three days to play – their first live gig – at this fashion fair as a constant musical background. The tracks were improvised on the spot in some kind of open music laboratory situation, while people could sit down to watch and listen.
Daniel Herrmann: keyboards

One can clearly hear traces of some old Krautrock legends like KRAFTWERK or NEU, but MME were definitly not limited to some onedimensional formula in creating their atmospheric soundscapes. Just listen to the steel drum sounds on the last track "jammin' with tyson"...

Torstn Kauke: bs

(mp3 zip, 13 tracks, 42 min)

If you like MME you should also check out CONCORDE, another project of Torstn Kauke.
Torstn is also featured with a fantastic psychedelic track on the 2nd HOMEMADE-LOFI-PSYCH Sampler "EMBRYO THOUGHTS".
