Independent Music Sampler #138

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Coltrane Blues, an eclectic collection of 25 independent and underground songs from all around the globe. This collection's title is in memory of the iconic actor Robbie Coltrane. Thank you for the many unforgettable performances that will live on.

Coltrane Blues covers a vast array of sounds and styles. We start off with modern interpretations of raw rock and roll, followed by modern indie bliss and rootsy songwriting escapades. And before finishing up, we take a journey into the world of post-punk and the avant underground. A true melting pot!

We welcome back the vintage garage psychedelia of Sid Bradley, the retro soul protopunk of Drool Brothers, and the garage rock powerpop of The Naked Lunch. The Pastel Waves deliver some glistening indie rock, Hotel California serve up homely indie folk, and Maestro Collage give us lo-fi avant pop. There is the quirky folk rock of Phil Matthews a.k.a. The Village, the lo-fi jangle pop of Miles Island, and the DIY indie pop of Stefan Neumann.

Munich Syndrome return with their retro-wave techno disco, and Blackjack Illuminist Records showcase the new uplifting German synthwave of Vlimmer. There is a roaming ambient soundscape from Apple Tree Lament's Under Golden Canopy, and instrumental regressive rock from Unconcealed Glory.

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