"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!

Shalloboi - all hope is blind (USA 2009)

SHALLOBOI were already featured with two albums and one live recording on HLFP in the past, and they also have got one track on the third HLFP-Sampler. (Check out the older posts here!)
Very dark, very slow and very dreamlike music.
If you like SIGUR RÓS you should really check this band out!

"All hope is blind" is going to be a vinyl only release and will come with a 20-page zine. You may take a look at the zine at the band's website as well as order their recordings there.
