"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!

dee jay cee - Things to do in the West When You're Dead (USA 2008)

Some short experimental/psych tracks recorded by DEE JAY CEE in December 2008 on an mp3 player. Instruments used were a standard tuned guitar, an open tuned guitar and an assortment of cymbals, floor toms, pots and pans.

Q: "Anything that you think is interesting, that you'd like to inform the blog readers about?"

A: "It's all the same everywhere you go."

DEE JAY CEE was born in Cleveland, moved to Seattle, then Oakland and will soon live in Chicago. He started playing drums since he was ten and guitar since he was 15 or so; played in a variety of punk bands, improv kraut groups and even a ska band.

When asked how he would "label" his music (I know it's a stupid question, but then WE ALL respond to labels if we like it or not...) he answered: "shlock".

As influences he names holger czukay, rev. gary davis and d.a. levy.

I love the lofi approach to make music: DEE JAY CEE is able to create some really special atmosphere with rather minimalistic equipment - the results are stunning, and I'd love to hear some more of that stuff.

Check out his site:
