"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.

Creamy Water Quiz - Flojo, Loco y Enigmático (USA 2009)

CREAMY WATER QUIZ is an experimental psychedelic electronic rock duo from Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA. 

Their album "Flojo, Loco y Enigmático" is a brand new 2009 production and strongly recommended!

"Experimental, free-form, lo-fi, ambient-electro-rock 

improvisations performed by Ryan 'Delano' Davis and Adam 

'Miracle Kitty' Walker.

Recorded during and for this century. All frequencies captured and mixed on 8-track analog, then edited and mixed again digitally.

Modus Operandi - loose, crazy and enigmatic

Used - guitars, bass, drum machines, samplers, synths, effects
Not used - midi, practice, sobriety or a plan

Creamy Water Quiz cherish confusion, understand the unusual, and worship the warped. 

Combining their individual successes with everything from rock to field recordings to electronic music, this Kalamazoo, Michigan 

duo formed in the mid '90s as an experimental outlet. CWQ is an 

antidote for the planned and an escape from coherency. Utilizing 

classic synths, ancient midi-less drum machines, cheap guitars, 

even cheaper basses, samplers, and far too many effects, they 

create exploratory, ambient-electro-rock improvisations. 

With a fee-from and lo-fi approach to sound, they layer duo-jams haphazardly on 8-track. All frequencies captured and mixed on 

analog, then edited and mixed again digitally. The result is a 

moody and meandering sonic catharsis." (Band info)

I think this is a pretty good description; I find traces of THE ORB or APHEX TWIN and the other usual suspects... 

Otherwise I've got nothing more to add - except that I find myself listening again and again to this fantastic 

recording. Strongly recommended!
