Independent Music Sampler #143

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Bad Finger Boogie, an eclectic collection of 25 independent and underground artists from all around the globe. This collection's title is another obscure reference to The Beatles. 'Why?', I hear you ask again. Because they are simply the greatest band ever!

This week, we welcome back a number of good friends. We have the boogie-woogie piano rock and roll revival of The Unkool Hillbillies, the shuffling country folk bluegrass of Casey Noel, and the Dylan-esque progressive folk rock of Martin Philadelphy and friends. Eileen Alanna also returns, contributing a track from her solo output and from her fantastic indie pop band, Fishing 4 Compliments. There is soulful and melodic folk rock from Jim Powell, rumbling noir surf rock from The Getaway Company, and Electric Talon Records bring heavy doomsday punk from Chimpgrinder. J.D. Tait is our final artist to feature again. He appears as part of the ambient, soaring metal soundscapes of The Meads Of Asphodel.

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