Tipsy – Liquordelic

Get your cocktails out (matron) and do the rhumba, because Tipsy are here with some dayglo, loungecore plunderphonics from their 1996 album ‘Trip Tease’.


Tipsy – Space Golf

Well, after posting Stock, Hausen & Walkman yesterday, it only seems fitting to post material from a US band who released an album of Sampledelic loungecore the very same year the aforementioned brits released ‘Organ Transplants: Vol 1’. Tipsy gave the world the fantastic ‘Trip Tease’ in 1996, where formica psychedelics meets morphing draylon sofas.

Stock, Hausen & Walkmen – Schweitzer

Plundered lounger buffoonery from the bands classic 1996 album ‘Organ Transplants: Volume 1’.


Tipsy – Tuatara

Here’s one from Tipsy’s dizzying foray into loungecore plunderphonics, 1996’s ‘Trip Tease’, and one can almost smell the palm tree’s. Lush, lovely intoxicating stuff.


Tom Recchion – The Perpetual Motion Clock

Back in 1996, whilst bands such as Stock, Hausen & Walkman, and Tipsy (especially early Tipsy) seemed to riff on vandalised Exotica, Lounge, and Easy Listening; Ex LAFMS (Los Angeles Free Music Society) member Recchion released an album of Lounge-core Sampledelia, titled ‘Chaotica’, that was recorded between 1985-86. What Recchion achieved with this dizzying, candy-coated piece of sampledelia seemed to be mirrored in the activities of other bands. Tom appeared to have started something with this. Check out the rest of this album, as well as the work of the other acts mentioned.


Tipsy – Grossenhosen

Lounge and exotica plunderphonic loveliness from Tipsy back in 1996. Their album ‘Trip Teas’ was up there with Stock, Hausen & Walkman’s excursions into similar territory, and a worthy addition to a wonderful moment in sampledelia.


Tipsy – Zenith

Tipsy were a band who got lumped in with Trip-Hop (shudder) on their arrival. There were probably times where the comparison was warranted; however, on tracks such as this one, they fitted into another category of Formica-polishing lounge sampledelia. Think Stock, Hausen & Walkman or ‘Chaotica’-era Tom Recchion.
This track is from 1997.


Jimi Tenor – Sirens Of Salo

Space age lounge Jazz from Finland’s Jimi Tenor here. This is off of his 2004 album ‘Beyond The Stars’.


The Focus Group – The Heavy Blessing

Another lovely vignette from Julian House’s ‘The Elektrik Carousel'(2013) album. Lounge exotica sampledelia in excelsis.


Andrew Liles – As on a Dung Hill

Sleazy lounge music, Liles style; from 2008’s ‘Black End’ album.
