2021: The Second Coming

by Various Artists



Weekly Independent Music Taster #109

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents 2021: The Second Coming, a collection of 25 eclectic musical selections from all around the globe. This particular release is also a celebration. It has now been two years since we relaunched with our first weekly compilation, The Second Coming. Time flies!

We welcome back several friends to help us with this celebration. Garrington T. Jones returns with his harmonica-infused country rock, House & Hawk give us their modern college indie pop, and Phil Gammage makes a comeback with his NYC alternative blues. Mike Stapleton brings us his own interpretation of the 'boom-chicka-boom' Cash sound, and our collaboration with 4000 Records continues with the modern jazz experimentations of Greshka.

As always, please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music.

Have a brilliant weekend!

Tom @ Aldora Britain Records
