"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!

A: Most songs recorded on 8 track and converted to mp3 through garageband.

A: This band has been around for a little under a year and from Chicago.

Q: Anything that you think is interesting, that you'd like to inform the blog readers about...

A: We have a soon to be label that we are starting called Fixed Traditions that will also have the albums of the bands Wrugs. So far those are the only two bands on the label. And no website yet for that label (...)

Not bad for a first release. In fact it's quite good fun to listen, especially "Banned From Earth" is amazing.
