"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.

KID'S GARDEN - Don't Call Me Yours
- Digital 7" (USA 2011)
(mp3-zip, 3 tracks, 9 min, 22,7 MB)
Get it here or here or here!
released 26 April 2011
Kid's Garden is:
George Clanton- Vox/Rhythm
John Sgroi- Lead
Nick Webb- Bass
Chris Straub- Drum

"Kid's Garden debuted with the album "Further" in 2007 on the website "George De Large's Music To Take Drugs To" blog (now defunct).

It was given away for free and generated a relatively large number of listeners on Last FM (http://www.last.fm/music/Kid's%2520Garden)

Since then there was only one other song ("Lord, Amen" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xw1mzcTT10) released with very little distribution.

Last month we announced we played the first show ever as a band after 4 years, and announced a preorder for an upcoming 12" vinyl EP to be released this summer.

The preorder was successful, generating nearly $500 (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1471123704/kids-garden-mirror-kisses-split-album-on-vinyl), which is half of the total cost of printing.

The record (entitled 'Light Hearted') is being pressed as we speak, and will be coming out soon. To ease some of the anticipation for this long-time-coming release,

we are giving away a free 3-track single on bandcamp, called Don't Call Me Yours. thats what I sent you. (kidsgarden.bandcamp.com)

Kid's Garden is a 4 piece band from Harrisonburg, Virginia (USA) just beginning to perform live. We will be performing around the east coast of the US all summer long.

thats pretty much the whole story in a nut shell! All of the music was written and recorded by me in my basement apartment."
