"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!

Tadoma - 2 tracks from 'Field Notes' (USA 2010)

TADOMA's instrumental music is very much inspired by early krautrock bands like POPOL VUH or CLUSTER.
He is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Info from Myspace/Tour-info:

"Tadoma is the work of Joe Patitucci, multi instrumentalist and a fixture in the Philadelphia music scene for the last ten years. Progressing from his early poppy tendencies (Asteroid #4, Hi-Soft) to sprawling post-rock (Diagram) Patitucci finds himself now creating the dense visual soundscapes that make up Tadoma's debut EP, Field Notes.

Field Notes EP:
(...) Tadoma’s 2010 release, Field Notes, presents the listener with a kind of sonic slideshow. Places reveal themselves through a fog of reverb and drones as tracks seamlessly move us from one image to the next. Each piece weaves melodies through sounds the way memory is entwined in our senses. They feel familiar but confounding, leading us to listen further and find new places within ourselves.

Live Performance
Tadoma’s performances incorporate live-looping of toy instruments, drum machines and samples to create enveloping lo-fi soundscapes that morph into everything from 70s kraut pastorals to fuzzy idm."

Not much more to add.
Pleasant dreamlike ambient/electronic soundscapes.
Check it out!

You may get the Field Notes EP at SECRET STATION RECORDS (also home of the fantastic LUNAR TESTING LAB and PANEYE)!
