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!

IMPRESSUM: see here!

Joakim Granlund - Kontraboken (SWED 2010)






Kontraboken is melodies gathered from 3 different projects by JOAKIM GRANLUND: SOARING SKYLARK, AALTO and URBERGET.

The URBERGET tracks are more in an ambient/experimental rock style, while AALTO is more experimental with a slight acoustic/folk touch, and SOARING SKYLARK could best be described as electronic ambient music.
Amazing stuff - well worth checking out.
