Compilation #33 MERRY-GO-ROUND

Another weekly independent music taster from Aldora Britain Records. The collection shows no regard for genre boundaries and is a far-reaching set taken from all over the world. Please enjoy and discover your new favourite band!

There are a number of artists featured here that are already long-established members of our Community. This includes the return of Shelley Ruhlen Ponce with her Mighty Violets project delivering some enticing country folk rock. We also have the optimific pop rock of Jess Morrison and the ambient alternative rock adventures of Grey Star Ghost.

New additions come in a variety of styles. There is Kreeps, a totally unique concoction of pop, garage rock and post-punk; and The Sly Persuaders, loud garage punk from London. On a different note we also have Damon Kilcawley & Ruth Jacob, fingerpicking bluegrass-inclined traditional folk; and Me In The Forest, continental folk with soulful undercurrents. We delve into a modernist heaven with the jazz of Sam Q's Night Patrol and then there's the avant garde alternative pop fun of The Pain Splats. Jamie McKay makes his first appearance too with his form of indie pop psychedelic and The Brads deliver some reggae fusion from down under.

The collection winds down with a hard and heavy set that includes the punk attitude and swagger of Grey Hairs and SOOMA, two bands that have contrasting approaches to this fast and opinionated genre. There is the pop punk - alt rock crossover of The Getaway Company, the soulful hard blues rock of Lee Ainley's Blues Storm, and the adrenaline-fuelled destruction of BRLRS.

The final notes comes from Juice Oh Yeah. These guys, hailing from St Petersburg in Russia, are impossible to describe. Some influences would include prog rock, doom, avant garde, stoner rock and experimental. It's niche!

Enjoy and stay safe.
