Weekly Independent Music Taster #112

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents I Guess That's Why (I Never Settled Down), a collection of 26 eclectic musical selections from all around the globe. This week, our title track is provided by the old-time bluegrass balladry of Taylor Ackley And The Deep Roots Ensemble. Welcome to the family!

We also welcome back Skeleton Birds who contribute their orchestral and cinematic alt rock. 4000 Records are back again too. This time with the dreamy reverberating surf of The Double Happiness. It would seem Brisbane is a treasure trove of underground music!

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

Have a brilliant weekend!

Tom @ Aldora Britain Records
