"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!

Whimper Warrior (now: Coma Nova) - EP (USA 2009)

"The group I play with, Whimper Warrior, is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and has been called 'droning psych-metal with transient male/female vocals.' (...) our self-titled EP (although it clocks in at about 30 minutes) (...) has five tracks, all written by us. (...). The album itself was self-recorded during two weeks of late-night sessions at the recording studio we have residency at. We're working on a full-length right now, but will be doing this on an old 7" 8-track reel machine in our house."

(Info by Eli via email)


Eli Kroes-Guitar & vocals / Elaine Martin-Vocals / Matt Motzell-Drums / Jake Marcus-Bass

The band changed its name from WHIMPER WARRIOR to gREY NOISE to COMA NOVA (latest incarnation). The EP on offer here was recorded under the first name and is recommended listening. Indeed rather 'droning' and also rather lo-fi, but if you're into hard-riffing, guitar driven tunes not too far away from bands like DINOSAUR JR. or even BLACK SABBATH ("Bludgeon") this might be the right stuff for you.



Favourite track: "Whistle Dick"
