TWO is this week's compilation from Aldora Britain Records. It is also the sequel to our ONE compilation, released 18th April 2020. It has been a crazy year since then! Here we have 23 tracks of some of the best independent and underground music from all around the world. As always, please download, listen loud, dig deeper with your discoveries, and support Aldora Britain Records and independent music.
This week we welcome back a number of friends. We have European punk rock from The Chris Rolling Squad and Wild Zeros, as well as blues rock from The Andy Taylor Group and powerpop from Popular Creeps. Lawrence County and LPA Songs return with some alternative Americana and Garrington T. Jones brings us some rootsy blues. Big Stir Records also snapshot a new release by contributing a track by The Forty Nineteens.
The new faces this week include Tinkers Lane (60s-inspired pop), The Bad News (ferocious garage punk) and Derek Luttrell (country rock). Australian blues legend Kerri Simpson contributes a track from her worldly voodoo-inspired solo album as well as a track from her band, Opelousas. Ben Lang gets folky and Black Patti deliver us some old-time bluegrass.
There is DIY indie pop from P For Pepsine, alternative blues from Adam Gundrum, post-Britpop from Meiosis and contemporary R&B from Tammy Harris. We then wind things down with reggae from Joe Armijo, alternative folk from David Laczko, experimental folk from Say Anise and adult pop from Kim Edgar.
Thank you for tuning in, play loud! See you next week.
