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!

The Three Potato 4- Album Savant (USA 2009)

From San Francisco, CA, USA, comes Ryan George, the man behind
THE THREE POTATO 4.

"... Over the next 9 months, I recorded 'Album Savant' - a collection of baroque, avant-pop psychedelia teeming with mountain dulcimer, organs, cellos, dollar-store toys, tampuras, steel radiators, and more reverb than you can shake a stick at." (R. G.)

Amazing album with a near perfect production - great music, that I'd like to term Baroque-psych. There's lots of things and sounds to find in the mix, every time you listen to "Album Savant" you will discover something new, so repeated listening is strongly recommended - and a real pleasure. The arrangements are adventurous and exceptionally and Ryan's gentle and distinctive singing style is tasteful and concise.

Favourite track: 'Let Yourself Know' and 'Manic By Proxy'

'ALBUM SAVANT' IS AVAILABLE NOW on iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, and Amazon.com MP3.
You can also get it on CD from the fine folks at Ryan's record label, Series Two Records, by
clicking here.

This is an excellent album - gentle and hypnotic, it reminds me a bit of Spritualized's "Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space", though some of the instrumentation gives it a whole different spin. And "Victory" is clearly "the single" - a catchy, more upbeat sorta pop song, though as lysergic in its way as anything else here. Good stuff!
