Weekly Independent Music Sampler #124

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Face The Distance, an eclectic collection of 26 independent and underground songs from all around the globe. This week's title is a reference to 'The Distance', a song by Georgina Banks, included here. Georgina has a brilliantly emotive and unique style of alternative pop.

We welcome back several old friends too. There is a solo outing from Simon Jones, a member of Harp And A Monkey, a fantastic piece of sci-fi folk. We also have some bass-heavy funk rock from Chloe And The Opposites and modern experimental fuzz from Anime Aliens. The Apple Tree Lament collective return with a brilliantly off-grid piece from The Phoenix Cube.

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

Tom @ Aldora Britain Records
