We're Not On Drugs

by Various Artists



Independent Music Sampler #132

Aldora Britain Records proudly presents We're Not On Drugs, an eclectic collection of 25 independent and underground songs from all around the globe. The collection's title is inspired by a Mookie Mcfierson track. Mookie is featured here and is this week's pick from the Colorado Reglar-Daddy collective, providing his interesting take on fingerpicking indie folk.

We also welcome back a number of familiar faces. There is the sax-infused country folk of Jason Mirek, the progressive bedroom pop of Tiny Room Records' The World Of Dust, and the psychedelic jam rock of Jphono1. Capital Sons bring their groove-laden classic rock, Maestro Collage deliver some melancholic lo-fi pop, and Random Default Band give us their soaring indie post-punk. There is British folk rock from John O'Sullivan, and Snappy Little Numbers return with melodic pop punk from Friends Of Cesar Romero.

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