A Weekend With Blanche Hudson is the name of this week's offering. Yet another collection of independent or underground music from all around the world. The title is a nod towards the brilliant Blanche Hudson Weekend and their label mates, Girl One and The Grease Guns, who have both contributed tracks. Real high points of the collection.
We also welcome back Bitterwind who recently released their single, 'Summer Rain', on our label. Cimrya Deal, French indie pop, and Harrowman, traditional English folk, also return. Bent Roads Tavern bring back their boundary-pushing folk rock all the way from Canada.
Elsewhere, we see the new faces and hear the new sounds of Jeremy Tuplin (psych pop), Witchdokters (garage rock), and The Battlebeats (punk). Les Nuby gives us some arena rock, The Cancellations deliver melodic powerpop, and Ross Royce serves up the glam rock. There is experimental folk from Wolf Laurel, quarantine indie pop from Charlie Jindra, and dreamy pop from Nico Carnago.
Proceedings wind down with the indie folk of Philippe Guislain, the heavy alt rock of Premium Heart, and the industrial electro of Unquiet Dead. Our closing notes come from the contrasting alternative punk of Zacc and The Scissorlips and the ambience of Blue Navy.
Please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music. Enjoy!
