"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!

Glaze of Cathexis - The Golden Konbanwa (USA/JP 2009)

The latest release from GLAZE OF CATHEXIS - simply their best until now!
Can't say too much about the lyrics (being not a native speaker of the English language - I don't really understand everything), but I very much like the sound of the words and also the singing.
The music is probably the most psychedelic GLAZE OF CATHEXIS have ever recorded, ranging from garage-psych-rockers ("The Release Will Come Soon") to relaxed spaced-out tracks ("Call of the Cosmic Tribe") and more electronic songs ("Into the Aether"). Great stuff, strongly recommended!

"This is a bit of a concept album, although it reflects my belief that the best concept albums are somewhat loosely tied together. Scott's poems go the farthest in tying those ideas together. I see it as an awakening and exploration of alternate states, ending with the need to reconcile that with the world around us."
(M. G.; read more at Dr. Schluss blog.)

All songs were recorded in Atlanta, Georgia, from November 2008 - June 2009 except the spoken word parts recorded on a cell phone in Tokyo, JP. This work is a collaboration of Matt Comegys (Dr. Schluss) and Scott Atkinson.

Favourite song: "That Halycon Moment" (though way too short!)

Thanks for the post and the words! I haven't gotten as much feedback as usual on this one (maybe everyone's out on vacation). I kept on recording after this one was finished, so you may not have to wait too long until the next one. So far the more recent stuff has some 'stoner metal' influences (Black Sabbath-style riffs, a touch of Iron Maiden) that are sort of new for my music.

P.S. - It might be ok that you don't understand the words. I just noticed last week that tracks two and four start with practically the same lines. Because it's, uh... a concept album. Yeah, that's it!
