"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!

Shalloboi - 04-18-2009 - Chicago, Elastic Arts Foundation (USA 2009)

"here it is at last - the recording from the strings show from saturday night. it turned out a good deal better than i expected it to. the show was also possibly the best show we have ever played. the strings sounded good (and were audible- which was a sizable concern on my part) and we played well. we played nearly all new songs. i think we only played one released song. -- this live show was recorded in april at elastic arts foundation in chicago - the string players were katelyn eldridge- violin, chris gagnon - viola and aleskandra lederer - cello. -- most of the songs are from the record we are currently working on, which will be a vinyl-only release called 'all hope is blind' and basically the finished tracks that we have right now basically sound the way they do here on this live recording." (T. R.)

If you are not familiar with SHALLOBOI's music, I'd recommend to check out their studio recordings first, before listening to this live recording. Or you may also have a listen to the 3rd HLFP Sampler, where they are also featured with one track.

Thanks a lot Tyler, for making those exquisite recordings available.
