HOMEMADE LOFI PSYCH --- WHERE TO START?





"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.

Sorry!

Shalloboi - dandelions (USA 2009)

A new SHALLOBOI album for you to enjoy! That's what I call good news!
Thank you, Tyler Ritter, for sharing!

All songs were written by Tyler except 'sleep now...' (by tyler ritter/traditional) that contains verses from 'goodnight irene' which is in the public domain
.
Personal is:
tyler ritter = guitars, voice, 6-string bass, bass, percussion, loops, hammond organ 

stefanie goodwin = drums, voice, percussion, glockenspiel

billy speer = cello

christopher gagnon = violin

andrew royal = violin on 'glasslands'

recorded from april 2006 to april 2009 mostly at the panda room - chicago, il and at billy's apartment and house- kansas city, mo

SHALLOBOI sound like a crossing between SIGUR RÓS and MÚM (and a bit MY BLOODY VALENTINE). Also to my mind comes JULIE CRUISE. So if you like those artists YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO CHECK THIS OUT!
"Dandelions" is even more quiet than "Down to Sleep" (from 2008). It has that exquisite relaxed sleepy feeling that makes you feel comfortable all the way, though this very atmospheric music sometimes is quite mellow, even melancholic...

Excellent album, excellent band! In fact one of my favourites from this blog...

Don't forget to check out the older post.
Favourite track: 'field of flowers'

IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU HEAR AND YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THE BAND – BUY THEIR RECORDS AT AMAZON.
