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 new stuff.

Sorry!

IMPRESSUM: see here!

RE-POST: The Vertigo Swirl (USA 2009)


BRIAN ANDREW MAREK's first release by his psychedelic project with the name THE VERTIGO SWIRL from 2009. A great album!
Grab it now, if you missed it the first time around!

BaM: "Well, here it is - the first product of my new psychedelic project, THE VERTIGO SWIRL. Three songs and two instrumentals, all recorded by my lonesome in December and these first days of January. Thank you to Mike Floyd and all the artists on the homemade lofi psych blog for inspiring me to get off my butt and do some new experimental recordings."

The three tracks in song format presented here are nice explorations in psych pop, but the real treat are the two instrumental tracks: "Baited Breath" is a very far out soundscape psych song complete with backward guitars and sitar like sounds that (except for the drum sound) could easily come from a 1967 album. This is the kind of song I could listen endlessly... The second instrumental track, the title song "The Vertigo Swirl", is another, more krauty, psychedelic masterpiece, that comes along as a mixture of the echo-ey guitar sounds of early 70s experimental German guitar player ACHIM REICHEL ("Die grüne Reise") or MANUEL GÖTTSCHING's mid-70s ASH RA ("Inventions for Electric Guitar") and CAPTAIN BEEFHEART's early rhythmic experimentations ("Mirror Man Sessions"). With 22.47 minutes not one second too long! GREAT!

All we can say is: Wham bam, thank you BaM!

You'll also find one very psychedelic track by BRIAN ANDREW on the HLFP-Sampler (# 03): 
"NEW KIDS ON THE BLOG".
