"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!

Elvis Bordello - lo-fi vampire kicks (SERBIA 2010)

Here is some interesting electronic lo-fi experimental music by ELVIS BORDELLO, a one-man project from SERBIA. If you like the sound of analog synthies you may want to check this one out.

Q: Where exactly are you from?
A: Currently living in Krusevac, kinda of a small town in central Serbia (ex-Serbia and Montenegro, ex-Yugoslavia, ex-whatever) but hopefully moving to Belgrade in couple of months

Q: Do you want your real name mentioned?
A: My real name is Ivan Spasic. The name of the ‘band’ – Elvis Bordello, is a mix of Elvis Presley and Gogol Bordello although I really hate Gogol Bordello and regarding Elvis I’ll just use Laurie Andersons quote - I have never been one that hoped Elvis is still hanging around somewhere, hiding, but I will probably always expect to see Andy (Kaufman) reappear, someday.

Q: How recorded?
A: All the tracks recorded on my hard drive using my shitty integrated sound card. How lo-fi can you get?

Q: When recorded?
A: Recorded during the summer of 2010.

Q: Who involved? Who played what?
A: Well it’s a one man band. Elvis Bordello used all kinds of analog synths to please his delicate ear, hoping that pleasure he received is contagious.

Q: Any more releases?
A: Nope, but the future will bring some I hope
(In the meantime ELVIS BORDELLO has been quite busy. Many more songs are available via last.fm, see below - m-f)

Q: How'd you "label" your music?
A: Anyone can play

Q: Influences?
A: Italian b-horror and giallo movies atmosphere, Martin Rev, Yip-Yip and many more in a way.
Q: Anything that you think is interesting, that you'd like to inform the blog readers about...
A: The fundamental laws necessary for the mathematical treatment of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty lies only in the fact that application of these laws leads to equations that are too complex to be solved.
(Paul Dirac)
Same goes for music
(Elvis Bordello)

Favourite track: una lucertola con la pelle di donna
