This week's album comes exactly one year to the day since we launched our record label with our very first compilation, The Second Coming. This is the 2020 edition, our 92nd release in one year. Independent music is alive and kicking, come along for the ride!
This week we welcome back another patron of underground music, Alexander Leonard Donat. He contributes tracks from two of his dream punk projects, Fir Cone Children and Vlimmer. It is always great to have Alex involved!
We welcome a strong punk contingent this week too... The Scuts, Lucky Number Nick, Fleks, Longshot Odds, The Dry Retch, I.R. Idiot, and 23 & Beyond The Infinite. The collection opens with a traditional folk singalong from Ryan David Orr and we have gritty blues rock from Pink Pussycats From Hell. Ozorio Trio and Igloo Hearts take rootsy approached, and Heavy Whipped Cream take us on a technicolour trip into 21st century psychedelia.
There is still plenty more too. Cold wave from Bellhead, melodic powerpop from Christopher Peifer, and theatrical pop from The Barbarian Horde. Rachel Kiel covers art rock, Pool Noodle give quarantine garage rock, and Denin Koch & Beta Particle deliver modern jazz. The Boysox and Sociales Hetzwerk conclude this week's collection with some alternative rock.
Please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music. Enjoy!
