"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!

Low - Fye: My First EP (UK 2008)

This EP here comes from a guy who lives in North Wales, who does all the singing and playing on a piece of music, he simply titles "My First EP". He calls himself LOW - FYE and the EP was recorded 2008 on a digital 4-track recorder. Most of it sounds ... well, rather lofi, sometimes it's just an acoustic guitar and a voice (e.g. "A Careless And Disorganized Song/Make Up Your Mind") we hear, sometimes some more sounds are added to good effect ("Symptoms", "Today")'; some tracks are instrumental. Don't let the fact that the sound isn't latest hifi stop you from downloading this EP, because it is realy good. 
My favourite tracks are "Today" and "Repeat", that both show a strong SYD BARRETT influence (rather the BARRETT of "Terrapin" and "Dominoes" than of "Piper" or "See Emily Play" one should probably add).

Don't apologize for the low fidelity - that's why we're here! And this EP is a perfect example of why. Spooky, melancholy, intimate yet interstellar. I don't know if it's just something about Welsh voices, but I hear a John Cale influence as well as Syd Barrett. My only complaint might be that it's too short and leaves me hungry for more - but then again, I'd rather have 15 minutes of pure sonic interest than 80 minutes of something far less fascinating. Keep up the good work, Low - Fye, and bring us more in the future!
