MARSDEN is the title of this week’s compilation record, a fitting tribute to the Merseybeat hero and frontman of the brilliant Gerry and The Pacemakers. Represented here are 22 of the finest up and coming artists from all around the world… and some older selections too. A collection of underground and independent scenes from all around the globe. Many representing a camaraderie and artistic flair similar to that of the Merseybeat trailblazers of 1960s Liverpool. Please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music.
It is with great pleasure that we welcome back Catherine Traicos, the art pop – alternative blues crossover artist from Australia, and Matty Simpson, the bluesy roots rock guitar god from Canada. The Lampshades also introduce themselves with their alternative and experimental take on guitar indie, a little snapshot of their extensive back catalogue.
Elsewhere, we have powerpop from Baby Blue and Adam Daniel, each coming at the genre from a completely different starting point. There is also the punk of The 65's, More Kicks and Flyscreen. We then have a strong roots contingent consisting of The Fried Crawdaddies (country rock), Paul Harrold & The Nuclear Bandits (mountain rock), Lee Gull (raw country folk) and Becky Kapell (neo-traditional country).
We explore blues rock with Blackbird Hill and Red N Black, and grunge blues with Lonely Old Boy. Armchair Oracles deliver jangle pop, Sam Eastman gives us soulful instrumental rock, and Dulci Ellenberger has the blue-eyed soul. There is then the reggae fusion of The Happy Cowboys, the post-punk of Over Motion, and the jazz rock of Forlorn Elm. Proceedings conclude with the baroque choral adventures of Andsome Friends, the latest project from the talented Miguel Heatwole.
