Aldora Britain Records is back once again with this week's compilation album, Everly. The title is, of course, as a mark of respect for the late Don Everly, a rock and roll innovator, who passed away last week. This album consists of 25 handpicked gems from all around the globe. As always, please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music.
We welcome back Alexander Leonard Donat under the pseudonym of Vlimmer, his bullet proof darkwave project who we have come to know and love. Arda & The Stolen Moon come back to us with their Cyprus-based take on upfront, from-the-heart alternative rock. Big Stir Records also return with the melody-driven pop rock of the marvellous The Lunar Laugh. Their roster is going from strength to strength just now and shows no signs of slowing down. Jeffrey Bright brings us another project from his archives series. This time, it's his work with bombastic gloomy jangle pop group The Pleasures Pale.
Elsewhere, we open proceedings with Green Diesel, acid folk with a progressive twist, and The Braam Brothers, celestial and tender roots rock. There is the quirky experimental psych pop of Custardpaws & Mr. Freezy, the classic-sounding folk rock of Summer Sleeves and the harmonica-laden troubadour folk of Scott Meyers. We have a good-time country duet from Trevor Tchir, twangy country rock from Bill Edwards and a gritty anti-folk escapade from Beau James Wilding.
Liam Vincent & The Odd Foxes deliver tender and emotive indie folk, Pastel Coast give us tropical indie pop and Forre Sterra bring us dreamy lo-fi bedroom pop. We have atmospheric, driving indie rock from The Pastel Waves, technicolour shoegaze from Guest Directors and Long Island emo punk from Ackerman. There is the traditional Irish rebel-rousers of Diaspora, the catchy Beatle-esque acoustic rock of Til Willis and the orchestral classic rock of Eric Dwight.
Proceedings start to wind down with Cvantez, dark indie psych, and We Hate You Please Die, raw and raucous punk. There is heavy and expansive prog rock from Ricardo Margadona & Rebecca Riss and experimental alternative chanson from Bruno Karnel.
Special thank you to all the artists involved and the music lovers that keep coming back to AB Records every week. Have a great weekend and see you soon!
