Tong - Heart 02:53


Weekly Independent Music Sampler #123

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Hawk, an eclectic collection of 26 independent and underground songs from all around the globe. This week's title is a dedication to Taylor Hawkins, a man whose energy, enthusiasm and humour was known the world over. Rock and roll won't be the same without you, Taylor.

We welcome back a number of familiar faces this week. The Terraplanes Blues Band return with their jumping rhythm and blues, and Percy give us their grinding post-punk revival. There is soul punk glitter rock from the Drool Brothers, and German highway music from Sloe Gin. Our good friend Tom Redwood also returns with the surf punk of Dapto Dogs, and the Apple Tree Lament collective bring progressive acid folk poetry from The Kitchen Cynics.

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

Tom @ Aldora Britain Records
