"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!

Free Rein- Moon Signs Sigh + Two Leaves Live (USA 2009)

FREE REIN come from Oakland, CA, USA. The band exists since late 2008, and the members play "Theremin, waterphone, 6 string bass, tapes (...), wind instruments, percussion" and also occasionally do some vocals.

Free Rein live at the Luggage Store Gallery

"Their music is completely improvised and recorded live. - Andrew Joron is known primarily as an experimental lyric poet. His books include, "The Sound Mirror" and "The Sun at Night." He is a translator of the German Marxist philosopher, Ernst Bloch. - Brian Lucas is a visual artist and former member of the free form psychedelic band, Mirza. Lucas also played bass briefly for Caroliner. - Joseph Noble investigates the process by which one creates an architecture of breath. Noble is the author of 'An Ives Set.'"
(Info from Myspace)

"Moon Signs Sigh" is a rather quiet, beautiful minimalistic piece of improvised music - with assorted percussion and bells and flute harmonizing perfectly, floating along seemingly not of this world...

"Two Leaves Live" includes two long tracks with almost 30 minutes each and is similar in style to "Moon Signs Sigh": beautiful improvised, rather quiet music. Nothing for rock/garage/noise fans of course, but may appeal to fans of the more experimental, ethnic kraut bands like POPOL VUH or DZYAN.
