"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!

The Kicker Knot - Ghost Mouth of the Clouds (USA 2008)

From Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA, comes the one man band project by the name of THE KICKER KNOT. The music is "some lo-fi bedroom psychedelic progressive folk ... that i made in my very own bedroom", so the man himself. 

"Ghost Mouth of the Clouds" was almost completely recorded by him alone – with just a little help from his brother and a friend (horns on "eisenhower highway") and a big group of friends for the choral vocals (on "iron helps us play").
I don't know if THE KICKER KNOT knows "Corky's Debt to His Father", the weird, but rather charming solo album of MAYO THOMPSON of RED KRAYOLA/PERE UBU fame from 1970, but anyway, his music and the singing style somehow remind me exactly of that record (that in fact I love very much; so this is meant as a big compliment)! Probably it is even a little bit more fun to listen to than THOMPSON's record...
In any case a very original work that deserves to get heard by any serious psych-folk collector.

Check out his Myspace site and this site.

A truly fascinating listen! I've spun it several times today and enjoyed it greatly.
