Weekly Independent Music Sampler #117

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Ronnie, an eclectic collection of 26 songs from all around the world. This week's title is in memory of and in tribute to the legendary Ronnie Spector, who passed away last week. This collection is also dedicated to Micky Fitz of The Business, a song from the Unfinished Business tribute album is included here.

We welcome back several old friends this week. From Australia, Nurseratched returns with his operatic and art-inclined alternative folk rock. We also have Sam Pointer's driving and rootsy soft rock and roll, and a noir and grungy rock odyssey from Antinode. There is the contemporary alternative rock of Premium Heart, and Le Fondeur De Son return with Anti Rubber Brain Factory and their marching band experimental jazz.

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

Tom @ Aldora Britain Records
