"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!

East Ra - Sutra (Croatia 2009)

In February last year I posted "Cold Summer" by Croatian underground psych band EAST RA.
"Sutra" is their latest release, their second album, this time sung in their own language.
dino-s translated the original song titles for us, so that we might get an idea what the songs are about.

These are raw, rather lo-fi recordings, again mostly folkrock mainly based on acoustic guitar playing and often unpolished, sometimes blues-y vocals. Probably not quite as dark as the first album, but just as atmospheric.
Amazing work!

They have a video for Naronca:

I think it's a squid or something.
