"There is so much great 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 imo are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

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!

Get it here or here!

The purpose of this sampler (and this blog) is to show how many great unrecognized very creative bands/artists are out there in the WWW – bands that are doing their own thing, unimpressed by the mainstream plastic pop world ...
I hope that at least some of those musicians will get the recognition they deserve ... at least in the digital world.

Since I started homemade-lofi-psych in January this year there were 137 posts; nearly 60 different bands/musicians were introduced to you blog readers.

HLFP 03 may serve as an appetizer. It features some of my personal favourite tracks by musicians, that were featured on this blog since I posted the last HLFP sampler...
(HLFP 02 "EMBRYO THOUGHTS" – though there is one exception: dANIL, who nevertheless is featured under another name on this blog as solo artist and band member of ORANGE, SUPER KING AND THE FIRE ACTION and CAPTAIN FARTFISH AND HIS CAREFUL MUFFINS)
... and that are NOT yet featured on the first two samplers. Therefore the title: "NEW KIDS ON THE BLOG".
Whoever will download HLFP 03 has the chance to come to know those bands and listen to one of their songs – and if he likes what he hears he may check out the original post with the complete album that song is taken from...

BLOGGERS: Feel free to repost this sampler, but please tell me about it, and please use the original links as long as possible!

The first and second Homemade-Lofi-Psych Samplers are still available for download:

Enjoy! And Merry Christmas!

I'm listening and assembling the packaging as we speak. Thanks for another great sampler and including me in the fun. I have been doing some more recording in a psychedelic/experimental vein lately and will present the results once I've built up enough material for an album. The working name for the project is The Vertigo Swirl.

Hi, BAM,

looking forward to hear it!

Hope you enjoy HLFP 03 as much as I do!

Dharma Bummer said...

Well Mike, I've already given it a couple of spins and really like what I've heard - an impressive array of talent. I'd already familiarized myself with the works of Rangers, Barnyard and Lucas Nathan but this sampler has me going back to check out Bill Rogers, Tapio Oksa (VERY beautiful track) and who knows that else...?

Dharma Bummer said...

mike-floyd said...

hallo mike - ich hatte soviel um die ohren seit weihnachten, daß ich jetzt zum ersten mal dazu kam, den x-mas sampler zu hören und ich muss sagen: wow - eine sehr schöne geschmackvolle zusammenstellung ist dir da (mithilfe all der talentierten psychedeliker, die hier verkehren) gelungen, kann man stunden lang hören und die zeit darüber vergessen - ich bin jedesmal völlig überrascht, wenn dann plötzlich im mix das mir vertraute Microgramma-Stück
sehr schönes werk, vielen dank.

und oberherzliche glückwünsche zur geburt deiner tochter. besser
kann man ein jahr ja garnicht beenden...

hello all participating musicians from internationalistan: i'm once again too lazy to translate all this into the common net language - just wanted to let you all know how much i like the new hlfp-sampler and all the great music you are making on it - and for the perfect compilation mike has made out of this material.
i can hear it over and over again (which is exactly what i'm going to do now)... thank you all & keep on 2009ing all year long!

This collection is more "pop structured" than the other two but for me that's a good thing.

I like it a lot. Thanks to all the artists for the gift.
