"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!

Rangers - Homemade Cassette Collages (USA)

Don't know much about MYSPACE: RANGERZZ, maybe even the name is wrong? IT IS! THE CORRECT NAME IS: RANGERS (READ THE COMMENT SECTION! m-f)
Anyway: There is that guy out there somewhere, who is offering this strange beautiful stuff for free download on several blogs (including homemade-lofi-psych) in the comment section:

"Here is an hour+ of my homemade cassette collages.."

No more info given. No artwork, no city name, no year, no musical background... just the music itself:

(band/project name corrected! m-f):
homemade cassette collages
1. street smell - 21.58
2. europe on TV - 26.10
3. volvo jungle mist - 33.16
(mp3-zip, 3 tracks, 73,3 MB)
Get it here
(New links Febr. 2012, still working in Dec. 2014)

So why not give him a chance to get heard. The musical flow that is presented here makes quite cool late night or early morning listening. Don't expect any hifi here. The sound is somewhat quite... well, muffled. This is indeed lofi, just as I like it!
Seems like a mixture of samples/found audio stuff and added/overdubbed instruments like percussion, treated guitars and so on. Strange, but beautiful and quite trippy in places.

(If you are the musician and see this post, give us some more info about your musical project(s), please do so in the comment section - and thanks for sharing!)

Some pretty amazing stuff on here. Street smell is just mind-blowing. What a wonderful find!

holy crap! this is rangers! thanks so much for posting or uh re-posting this stuff after I originally posted on here. I make stuff on my cassette 8 track. I was never good at writing pop songs or singing or being in a band so I just started putting the little bits of music I record together in a collage sort of manner similar to james ferraro in a way. volvo jungle mist and europe on tv are both fairly recent where street smell is a collection of old (some very old) garage band songs i did before i had my 8 track. I'm still working on a ton a new stuff and trying to get organi-zized. I'm trying to put share file links on my myspace: www.myspace.com/rangerzz in the "about rangers" section. It sucks you have to copy and paste but it works. I'll check back soon! Thanks a bunch!

oh and the project name is just "Rangers" I put "myspace: rangerzz" in the original posting to tell people where my myspace page is: www.myspace.com/rangerzz. Little confusing I guess.
