"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.

Popcorn - Popcorn & Other Delights (1997)

Here's another past musical project of Brian Andrew Marek and "Manik" Myk Thompson (see post below). POPCORN is an American rock/pop band not too dissimilar to ROCKET PARK, posted some time ago (see here!).

"Popcorn began as a vehicle for legendary local front man Craig Downs and was my first project with drummer Eric Moore, but neither fellow was long for the band. Ultimately Popcorn mutated into a sort of refinement of the recently demised Lemonade with a new drummer (Dan Stuvland) and some swapping of roles (Danimal switched from bass to full time lead vocals while I abandoned guitar for bass). "Manik" Myk Thompson stayed on lead guitar, and we played a variety of originals - some new, some leftover from Lemonade and other projects, some to rear their heads yet again when Eric Moore, "Manik" Myk and I joined forces yet again in Rocket Park, which shared a similar aesthetic of hard, concise pop with occasional flights of fancy. We never did any professional recording, just enough ambitious four-track basement demos to fill out an album. Enjoy these now sounds for pop people!"
