Unknown Resonators

by Various Artists



Weekly Independent Music Taster #116

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents Unknown Resonators, an eclectic collection of 26 songs from all around the world. This week's title is inspired by two of the artists that are featured here, the electro punk Helmholtz Resonators and the horror punk I.R. Idiot.

We welcome back a number of familiar faces this week too. Highway Chapel return with their unique take on garage rock, and The Smart Folk bring us their sun-soaked soaring indie rock. There is the murderous bloody country balladry of Ol Billy Bob Boy, the chiming indie pop joy of The Happy Somethings, and the grungy piano-led rock and roll of No Wake. We then have alternative hard-edged funk rock from Holy Pills, insightful contemporary folk from Jonathan Nicholas, and new age indie folk rock from Jodie Reid. 4000 Records bring us Coalfalls and their soaring and fuzzy instrumental rock, and Brazil's Ozorio Trio return to us with an instrumental blues composition.

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