"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!

The National Orchestra of the United Kingdom of Goats - The Chronicles of Sillyphus (IT 2011)

According to Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/orchestraofukog) THE NATIONAL ORCHESTRA OF THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GOATS is from Italy (or South Tyrol?).

Don't know if that info is correct. There isn't much info around for those strange guys. Anyway, their sound is described as "symphonic grind pop", and I think If you like bands as diverse as DREAM THEATER, PINK FLOYD or even VOIVOD you might actually like them and should give it a try.

Their music is very well produced and the playing is excellent.

They have a second album out now, also for free download that is similar in style, The Three Walls of Kolepta, again kind of a prog-metal concept mini album. Check it out on their bandcamp site below.

"The National Orchestra of the United Kingdom of Goats has formed to cure the pain and darkness from all the lost souls that mindlessly roam this world. These four heroes have set out to tell the one true story. The one story that will save a great many and destroy the ones already far beyond redemption. Close all doors, light a candle - and kill the ones in charge."

They certainly sound interesting and mention of Voivod and Pink Floyd doesn't hurt. Grind pop(?), a new term for me. Thanks. I'll give em a try.
