"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!

Fossegrim - Of Absinthe (EP, USA 2009) + Demo

"Trond Fossegrim, true to his namesake, is an elusive mortal – a shadow upon the tide, settling upon the shore only to be pulled out to sea as quickly as he came. While “traditional venues” are a foreign concept, a clever ear might strain to hear his lonesome violin trace a solitary path along the forested coast of the Pacific Northwest. He is a performer by nature whose bow gives a voice to his surroundings and a chill to the occasional lost hiker. He’s helplessly charmed by the vast stretching coastline between San Simeon, CA and Blaine, WA. Should you find yourself wandering these same sandy trails with good intention, you’ll soon find there’s no better stage than a cold Thursday evening…"

(Info from Website)

"There is not much to say about myself, i am generally nomadic, i do not play "venues" and never on a schedule. I perform mainly to the woods, the streams and, on occasion, the random hiker. Traveling the coast of the Pacific Northwest between San Simeon, California and Blaine, Washington setting up as i feel necessary and adding my melodies to the already beautiful arrangement that my company provides. All recordings are done via cassette or reel to reel... and am in the process of recording new works to be released in cassette format (and possibly cd, but the sound is ruined when made digital)."

If you like avantgarde folk/experimental bands with a medieval touch like the British 70s act THIRD EAR BAND, you should definitely have a listen!
