"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!

The Parkside Lounge, August 6 at 9pm - Psychedelic rockers Manual Zombie, Sky Picnic and the Orange Oven will collaborate a show harking back to 70s-era acid rock.

The show starts at 9pm with the Orange Oven, Sky Picnic at 10 and Manual Zombie at 11. The Parkside Lounge at 317 East Houston, New York, NY 10002


Obscure yet prolific psych band Manual Zombie has recorded four albums

since forming in late 2008 and shows no signs of slowing. The band,

which references the Velvet Underground, Skinny Puppy and Black

Sabbath, plays songs about serial murder, cocaine addiction and

suburban malaise. Heavy and discordant, their performances are

unpredictable and canvassed by TVs broadcasting disturbing images.


Sky Picnic is quickly building a name for themselves. Recently

featured in High Times, they have been compared to "the Syd

Barrett-era of Pink Floyd" (Brooklyn Rocks), performing long and often

improvised pieces that will wrap around your head and may make you

feel a as though you've popped something. Accented by the mellifluous

Leah Cinnamon, their shows have been called "a one-of-a-kind musical

trip that blurs the lines between music and art" (High Times).


Opening the show is the Orange Oven, to whom the Parkside Lounge has

become a second home. The band has performed consistent showcases

since the start of the year. Described by music blog Knocks from the

Underground as "psychedelic and hypnotic, the stoner rock soundtrack

to a low-budget sci-fi flick from the early 70s", the band invokes the

"Wish you were here" era Floyd sound with tight jamming and heavier

riffs. http://www.myspace.com/theorangeoven
