More album covers we love . First and best of a few from the way hypnotic acid folk side of Krautland…
Witthüser & Westrupp, Germany, 1971.
Reason #654 that we love ourselves: we don’t even know if this band’s still active since their sole release, but we’re still here . Listen to them with us, you won’t be sorry.
Heavy Shake. From Peoria, Illinois, USofA.
For what it’s worth we’re just going to go ahead and say this is one of the best albums and bands from the last decade. Until you get bored, because you’re probably a smartphone-addicted, tablet-popping crybaby who doesn’t even know song titles! Let alone band names and locations or album release years… But we give you the benefit of the doubt, just like cats .
From Switzerland, we present The Cats Never Sleep.
In the wake of Valentine’s Day, perhaps our French mates Dead Horse One say it best: Without Love We Perish. Listen the the LP here on DHR, lest your heart suffer alone.

HIGH & DRYs are on DHR; and the truth is it doesn’t matter where good music comes from, it’s just fascinating when it comes out of certain places or under certain conditions . At any rate, we’re glad someone’s high and dry enough somewhere to make music we’ll listen to and share forever. Many [...]

Named after front man Sam Perduta’s late grandfather and New England fisherman, Connecticut-based band Elison Jackson appears to also draw their bounty from the depths. With a type of melodramatic indie-folk, their sound evokes a haunting comfort where an eerily emotive essence shakes hands with the sweet and savory memories of [...]
There’s so much great music all around us, styles for every color, shade, and gradient of the rainbow; sounds, mixtures, and swirls for every appetite. But sometimes there just ain’t enough down home, nails in my coffee, grease in my bacon fat, raw Blues.
