"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!

Bird From The Abyss - II released (FINL.)

J.M.A. from BIRD FROM THE ABYSS sent me a mail recently to inform me about the 2nd BIRD FROM THE ABYSS release.

Bird From The Abyss - II has been released 25 Nov 2009 by Starlight Temple Society.

This is how the label presents it:

"Finland's Bird From The Abyss takes flight with their debut album "II", a 40 minute sinister working of doom rock and folk music that will take you on a journey to explore the inner mysteries of the ancient Mediterranean underworld and then send you straight into the heart of the creeping muskeg pits and forests of Finland's mythological past. "II" utilizes a series of authentic classical instruments like the baglama, zither and flute and more modern ones to create a link between our world and one which still dwells in the nexus of time. Bird from the Abyss is the music of Pharaohs and ancient Sumerian kings!

Limited to 100 copies on gold CD, with 11"x17" poster, 8 page earth flecked paper booklet and matching 6"x9" printed envelope."
