"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!

Old And Gray - She's Buried Deep (USA 2004)

OLD AND GRAY originally from Redwood City, CA, recently relocated to Berkeley, CA. He is into music since 1984. He recently sang for a band called PHANTOM FLOAT, and currently is the drummer for ROOM FOR A GHOST.

"She's Buried Deep" was recorded in 2004 and first released in 2005.
All tracks and all parts were played by OLD AND GRAY, recorded "outside, in the laudry room, in cars, in garages, in the bathroom, on train tracks, in my room. Using one mic all the way through. an i5 and a bullet mic depending on the song."

Q: Influences?
A: mostly the instruments i try to play. they have a huge influence on the way things sound. besides that, i'm totally influenced by things that happen around me, what i had for lunch, and people that play music and REALLY mean it.
Q: Anything that you think is interesting, that you'd like to inform the blog readers about...
A: i really want to find a band in the berkeley area to work with. i really want to start up a gypsy concert network in the berkeley area. – i really want to create a community of people that organize house shows, and share art. – i also think that being a musician is CRAZY. bands break up too often, and lose sight of having fun even quicker. i think one thing to do is help the bands around you.

Q: How'd you "label" your music?

"she's buried deep" is pretty fuzzy, lo-fi, electronic, dark, experimental, rock. kinda ambient too.

Interesting dark experimental album, some rock, some pop, some avantgarde elements. Very well produced. Doesn't sound like anyone else. Self-contained and courageous. Recommended.

Favourite track: Can You See?, Three Dead Moods
