"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!

RE-POST: The Wig Museum - House Of Toucan (UK 2006)

Another PSYCHEDELIC GEM by an until now unknown one-man-band, called THE WIG MUSEUM, based somewhere in provincial UK. Marvin, the man behind the project, has played and recorded with various bands over the last 20 years and THE WIG MUSEUM is his solo project.
"House of Toucan" was recorded in 2006 in a humble basement studio – and is a great piece of art, believe me! There's lots of mood swings and influences range from film soundtracks/weird cinema to inner and outer space travels in the style of 70s krautrock or various psych bands of older times. The overall atmosphere is quite nightmarish, surreal in a filmic sense, reminding of horror movie soundtracks as well as of STEREOLAB harmony pieces, only to be interrupted by explosions of noises, backward loops and scary sound effects. This is PSYCHEDELIC in its true meaning: mind expanding!

"... They come surfing a mondo wave of electric piano riffs and crying trumpets, laden with phantastic sights and sinister sounds from the bendiest corners of the universe. Please feel free to enter my wigwam. Pull up a cube, slip into something more comfortable, and watch your screaming mind as it drips to the floor. Soon you may see sphericals, skyangles, triangles and evil rhomboid faces; you may hear bells, sirens, explosions and even screams – do not be alarmed. Just take a deep breath and keep repeating 'it's only The Wig Museum... only The Wig Museum... only The Wig Museum...' "

Nothing more to add. DOWNLOAD THIS TREAT!!!
Enjoy and don't forget to visit Marvin's great psychedelic blog!
