Weekly Independent Music Taster #91

This week we visit the SWAMP FUZZ TAVERN, a magical place where the religion is rock and roll and the music is played loud. It is great, authentic music too. You know, the underground grassroots kind. The best music there is, from all around the world. The title was inspired by swampy roots rockers Tavern Tan, who also appear with their track 'Sticks And Stones'. As always, please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music.

We welcome back Ohio pub rock / alt country royalty Sean Woosley. He appears as part of his new band The Repo Pilots, a group he formed virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic. ABR original Kerr Masterton also features for the first time in over 5 years. He brings us a brand new track from his synthwave project Erzo. Good friends keep coming this week as we introduce e-zine regular Mick Terry who delivers some soulful powerpop, Kirby Walsh relive the height of British new wave and Five Bluesmen show us how the French take on the blues.

There are a number of brand new faces to Aldora Britain Records too. Campbell And Johnston's Black Market Band give us an outpouring of bluesy soul, Jodie Reid delivers some indie singer / songwriter from South Africa and Sorrows bamboozle us with their take on the street punk blues, courtesy of Big Stir Records. There is a progressive take on the blues from Andy Dalby, straight-up punk rock from The Downstrokes and harmonica-infused rootsy folk rock from Barefoot Iano. We have the rollicking old-time bluegrass of Adeline, the tender and kindhearted folk of Montgomery Church and the grungy post-punk of Mad Foxes.

Jeff Crandall makes a double appearance with his psychedelia-tinted take on folk rock, featuring with his band Swallows and under his singer / songwriter guise J. Briozo. There is a soulful new blues concoction from Endrick And The Sandwiches, a progressive folk rock escapade from James Hollingsworth and ragtime boogie woogie piano from Greg Rahn. Oscar LaDell, tantalising blues from New Zealand, also features twice, appearing as a solo artist and in collaboration with Chris Armour. Shirley Shrimp give us doo wop-tinted indie pop and Oh! Gunquit conclude proceedings with their rumble bop surf punk.

Special thank you to all the artists involved and the music lovers that keep coming back to AB Records. Enjoy, play loud and see you next week!
