"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!

Beastmaster - Goathead E.P. + Spectral Bullock E.P. (UK/AUSTRALIA 2010)

BEASTMASTER is an Englishman living in Australia.
He is a multi-instrumentalist, and his instrumental music is a really bizarre mixture hard to describe, with traces of grunge, shoegaze, jazz, pop, and psychedelic rock. He definitely doesn't sound like anyone else – and that's a big compliment.

"I have pissed around in all sorts of bands in the past, most notably (but also most embarassingly) a 3 piece electro-grindcore band that lasted from 2006-2007 called 'The Robot Ninja Dinosaur Bastards'. We wore masks and played Judas Priest style riffs over nintendo gameboy backing tracks and Gabba beats. It was pretty terrible but there was some kind of small market for it. We were the 'comedy' band at hardcore electronic nights and raves. Then I moved to Australia and started making more normal music under the pseudonym 'beastmaster'. I was playing the drums in another grungey shoegaze band at the time and borrowed their equipment to record the first few Beastmaster songs. They lent me a guitar and bass and I gathered together some fx pedals and thus; Beastmaster was born. I'm now back in the UK and I've got a new 7 track e.p that'll be finished within the next few months. I'm also slowly planning to get a live band together too. Influences: I won't mention bands so.....echoey noises, fuzziness, psychedelia, spacey songs, grungey guitars, music that doesn't take itself too seriously, music with no vocals."
