"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!

Strangers Family Band - EP (USA 2009)

"If the Doors & Kennelmus had a baby, the Strangers Family Band is their love child!"

(Valis, Trip Inside this House)

STRANGERS FAMILY BAND exists since summer 2007, the band is from Orlando, FL.

"(... ) A full sensory experience is characteristic of their live performances, which include cascading oil and water projections and the frequent accompaniment of a horn section. The influence of Ashbury-Haight's acid rock, NYC's Factory heyday, and the British psych explosion are evident in their sound. These comparisons do not hold the band down to the limitations of throw-back 'retrodelia' however; instead, the band expounds upon the influence of its predecessors, establishing themselves as new, modern innovators rather than mere revisionists. Comparisons to Syd Barrett, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Doors, and the Beatles have been made as reference points. They have also been compared to The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, and The Entrance Band. (...)

The tracks found on their self-released demo are a sample portion of the songs that will be re-recorded for the full-length release."

Since two very good reviews of the STRANGERS FAMILY BAND's Ep already exist, I won't add another one... Just one thing: excellent band!!!
