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 Diamond Center - My Only Companion (USA 2009)


In February I already posted one free track from the then still unreleased album "My Only Companion". Now Kyle Harris from THE DIAMOND CENTER contacted me recently and kindly gave his okay to post the complete album, saying: "We definitely want to sell cds, but mostly we want it to be heard..." This is your chance to have a listen, before you decide to buy this little jewel. (Thanks, Kyle!)
So, as always: IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU HEAR, PLEASE SUPPORT THE ARTISTS!!!

THE DIAMOND CENTER recently relocated from Lubbock, TX to Richmond, VA.

"With their second full length cd (...) THE DIAMOND CENTER have created a cohesive body of work that draws upon the melancholy bitterness and the unexpected sweetness of life through haunting vocals, minimalist percussion and layers of reverb drenched swirling guitars." (from band info)

Dust-dry guitars and haunting vocals, echoes of surf music, mysterious country sounds and reverberations coupled with a pleasantly sparse, raw production – THE DIAMOND CENTER create an unique sound. Strongly recommended!

Favourite tracks: 'Dos Fridas', 'Cap'n Death'

Hi Monty,

I just checked both zips and both were working ok for me, so hmmm – maybe it has to do with the lenght of the name.
I uploaded another file (with shorter name), here's the link of the alternative megaupload:
