Weekly Independent Music Sampler #120

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Dear Rowdy, an eclectic collection of 26 songs from all around the globe. The title this week is a tribute to a close friend and supporter of ABR, the fantastically talented Rowdy Yates, who recently passed away. Many here will know Rowdy from his solo work and from his contributions to the Running Wi' Scissors collective, both projects were well loved by the ABR Community.

For this week's collection, we welcome back several familiar faces. The Braam Brothers return with their swirling cosmic Americana, Bruce Madden brings us the sleazy fuzz blues, and Shwarma deliver an infectious take on a soulful neo-funk groove. We also welcome back Big Stir Records and Tiny Room Records. From Big Stir, we have the progressive pop beauty of Anton Barbeau and the soaring sunshine pop of Lannie Flowers, and from Tiny Room, we have the free-flowing indie pop of Victory Hall and the cosmic experimental rock of Moonchy & Tobias.

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

Tom @ Aldora Britain Records
