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!

The Needy Visions - s.t. (USA 2010)


THE NEEDY VISIONS from Boston, MA, released their debut lp in May 2010. They also have a 9 song tape out, called "The Door's Open".

"WE WANT TO PLAY YOUR HOUSE, YOUR TOWN, YOUR SISTER'S TOWN, YOUR BOYFRIEND'S TOWN. LET US PLAY!!!!!!!!!!! GET IN TOUCH! WE AIM TO HAVE A GOOD TIME ALL THE TIME."

I guess this sums it up: THE NEEDY VISIONS indeed sound as if they could throw a perfect party. And it is really amazing how much they sound like the KINKS on some tracks, especially the lead singer. But also BRIAN ENO's pop albums come to mind.

THE NEEDY VISIONS are part of the "new Boston underground scene", among the likes of Truman Peyote, Major Stars, Many Mansions, General Interest, and Drug Rug.
