"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.

The Monkey Eastern - Original Soundtrack Recording (UK 2009)

"Recorded over a few sessions in July/ August 2009 at Tam Revorgs studio, this collection features 46 minutes of incidental music and songs from an imagined movie, placing our monkey heroes in some generic Eastern land populated by Samaurai's, Polish people and sitar players.

Featuring a host of new instruments, this is one soundtrack that is guaranteed to exist, regardless of whether or not there exists a movie to synch it up to." (Demis CousCous)

Kind of a side project of the GRASS MONKEY, whose jam based music I posted some time ago, THE MONKEY EASTERN (Demis CousCous, Divad Nyard, Tam Revorg) sound quite different on this fake soundtrack recording. Most of the tracks are short guitar-based instrumental songs with a definite eastern flair, supported by the occasional use of more or less exotic instruments like sitar, tabla or harmonium (to name just a few - see complete list of instruments used in the info). Then we have some simple songs with lyrics and vocals (some of them quite funny), that are far less eastern sounding (more western sounding to my ears).

A very fine album; quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Recommended!

Favourite track: 'The Shoegazing Samaurai'
