"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!

Dan Lawrence - Nameless EP (USA 2009)

DAN LAWRENCE from Newton, MA, sent me his ep "Nameless" to post it for your pleasure. It's a mixture of psychedelic folk/pop, acoustic guitar playing with some added electronics and a remarkable voice that you may need to get used to at first listen.
Quite interesting... Would like to hear more.

Here we go:

"I recorded it through a tape player directly into my Macbook. It was recorded over a period of two weeks during the summer of 2009. I played all the parts myself. This was my first EP since my 2008 debut LP entitled 'Stay' which is largely sample based and not readily available online at this point in time. I am currently working on a new full length LP entitled 'Predator Instincts' which will probably be released sometime this coming summer. I have played around in several bands before on multiple instruments but currently record and write music by myself. I'd label this EP as experimental pop/psychedelic, however, I like to explore many different genres throughout different projects. I am influenced at this point mainly by foreign music, especially asian classical music, I like to explore unfamiliar tones, and the internet is a valuable resource for finding otherwise forgotten musics."

Favourite track: Brother Song

I downloaded the album today and I already heard it three times. It´s a great EP. I think my favourite song now is the Behind the motion. It´s a kind of music that´s not easy to identify with same name. I love the percursions and this strange voice that in the beggining made me think wtf is that and now can´t get out of my mind.
Thank´s very much for the post and thank´s for the music.
