"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.

East Ra - Cold Summer (Croatia 2008)

This is your chance to listen to some true Croatian underground psych music: EAST RA.
Where else would you find something like that, if not on homemade lofi psych?
Don't miss this one - it's great!

Mostly dark psychedelic freak folk - homemade, recorded absolutely lofi in a living room; dark melodies based on acoustic guitar playing, a sinister voice (singing English lyrics - their next album will be sung in a special dialect, only understood in the region the band is from - "it doesn't get more psychedelic than singing in some weird language that noone understands" (dino-s) - ), an occasional piano/keyboard, sometimes heavily distorted (e.g. on "Blind"). A very atmospheric piece of music... Recommended!

Favourite track: Blind
Enjoy! And thanks for sharing, dino-s!
