"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!

Aural Incline - Aural Incline (EP song collection) (USA 2006-9)

"Although our sound isn't immediately psychadelic, (...) I feel that our music has a psychadelic feel with the stream-of-conciousness lyrics, and the textures created by our instrumental songs. We also record our music at home, ourselves." (Russ Carstens)

"AURAL INCLINE is a duo from Middletown, NJ, that formed in 2006. Russ Carstens plays guitar, sings, and drums (playing and programming), with Tom Perrella on bass. We play the open mic circuit as an acoustic duo in Central NJ when we can, and Russ is open to the idea of touring one day and playing live with electric instruments and backing tracks, for more of a "band" feel. All in all, we're simply pleased to share our music through the internet, and are thrilled if people enjoy it.

This is a self-titled compilation featuring songs from each of our 3 EPs, and a song from our new album, currently in the works. These EPs are free - just email us! (mail address in the zip-file - to avoid spam!!! m-f)"
(info by R. C.)

Very interesting mixture of rather straight alternative/indie rock songs and more abstract instrumental tracks. Comparable to, hmmm... YO LA TENGO, ELEVENTH DREAM DAY, late SONIC YOUTH, VELVET UNDERGROUND, TRANS AM ... The singing style reminds me sometimes of BRIAN ENO (especially on "Everything Is Connected").
Favourite song: "Vanilla Shake"
