HOMEMADE LOFI PSYCH --- WHERE TO START?





"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.

Sorry!

Least Carpet - Least Carpet (GER 2010)

"If you listen to Least Carpet the first time it will remember you of something you do already know, but it's blurry and then you get pictures. Pictures of sitting on a hill top in the fresh blooming meadow. You smell the weed and maybe yourself, you listen to the birdsongs and hear tiny bells ringing. On the left side, downhill you get a glimpse of some small village, on the right side: your sheep. You pickup your self carved flute and whistle with the birds. – A romantic notion? Yes, but what about the fact that the magic mushrooms you've found in the grass beside you, start to take effect right now."
(Info by DFBM:

The fine guys over at the Dying For Bad Music Blog founded a DIY net-label (concentrating on Neo-Psychedelic, Folk, Lo-Fi Pop and Experimental) starting with a strangely named band AALFANG MIT PFERDEKOPF (a reference to Guenter GRASS' novel Die Blechtrommel I suppose) followed by the LEAST CARPET release featured here. Next will be a new album by LOW - FYE, also featured on HLFP (see here).

LEAST CARPET get compared to HALA STRANA/STEVEN R. SMITH which doesn't say much to me, since I do not know any of them (maybe you do?).
The music on offer is fantastic instrumental psych folk with a definite eastern flair. Somehow reminding me of some instrumental passages of the late DEAD CAN DANCE. This is like some trippy Indian soundtrack music.
Very much recommended!
