"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.

Askeemal (aka: Asesquimal) - The Yellow Idiot (USA 2008)

ASKEEMAL (aka: ASESQUIMAL) is a moniker used by JARED FAIRFIELD (see posts below).
"The Yellow Idiot" is a (short) triple album, recorded mid to late 2008.

"I have recorded under several monikers, the most other notable being "Askeemal", weirdo post-punk falsetto goodies. (...) 'The Yellow Idiot' -- Probably the best and most original of all these (albums). Originally done under the moniker of Askeemal, this is a triple album release that, very simply explained, is very eccentric rock with girl like falsetto." (J. F.)

This is quite a trip! Something very special indeed. And good fun to listen.
I hardly understand a word, and I'm not even sure if the language used is English at all (sounds to me more like a drugged out Italian freak most of the time), but that really doesn't matter. This is great experimental rock music and though some parts remind me of different bands/musicians (CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND HIS MAGIC BAND, PERE UBU, BRIAN ENO, GUIDED BY VOICES...) I have never heard something like this before. Especially irritating at first listen are the girl like falsetto vocals on some tracks, that really have to be heard!
Eccentric and great! Recommended!
