Jimi Tenor – Barcelona Sunrise

The opening track to Tenor’s 2004 album ‘Beyond The Stars’ sets out his stall from the off,  and that stall is space age bachelor pad lounge/Soul music. Dig.


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’.

Tipsy – Hey!

Lively lounge plunderphonics from the bands 2nd album, 2000’s ‘Uh-Oh!’

Stock, Hausen & Walkman – Sponge[A]

Lounge sampledelia from the UK duo’s 1996 album ‘Organ Transplants Vol 1’. This one lulls you into a false sense of security before…….

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.
