Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Off The Wall, a collection of 25 eclectic musical selections from all around the globe. The title this week is a reference to Charlton Lane's contribution, 'On The Wall'. This track is an adventure into sci-fi dance punk weirdness!
Alongside Charlton Lane, we welcome back several other old friends this week. We have Rowdy Yates (member of Running Wi' Scissors) who gives us a taste of raspy Scottish traditional folk, and Gearedmah returns with his hard and heavy take on post-grunge. There is also the neo-psychedelic folk rock of Cimrya Deal, the dirty and fuzzy heavy psych of Halo Noose, and the relentless banjo punk of Dark Bottle.
This week also sees us begin our partnership with Brisbane's endlessly eclectic 4000 Records. Edgar Hurley comes forth with his lo-fi indie folk meanderings. As always, please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music.
Have a brilliant weekend!
