"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.

Thickly Painted Walls - Butterknife (USA 2010)

In April last year I posted "disconeck: the last album" by THICKLY PAINTED WALLS (see here), the one man experimental music project by Stefan F. Walz from New Jersey. "Butterknife" is THICKLY PAINTED WALLS' first release of 2010.
Again it is quite an experimental work, though sounding "less acoustic" (lots of distorted electric guitar...) and all in all probably less disjointed and fragmentary than "disconeck". Of course these songs still are no ordinary rock songs; they are unusual in a positive way.
Stefan is also a member of THE WHEN MCGRUFF WAS KING.

"Originally the concept for "butterknife" was to make anti-climactic rock/pop songs, the idea was inspired by a cut on my hand from a butterknife. This was metaphor for a dullness that is still defined and noticeable. Though the album strayed from concept at some point. - I think this album is primarily about post-relationship feelings."
(stefan f walz; tpw)

Favourite tracks: "fake lips" and "swoop nose"
