I took some time off for a little staycation and traveled around the UK visiting cities that not even many natives have been to, finding solace in small villages, and space in the fields. I’ve listened to a lot of music on the train (finally!) but as a result, missed the scheduled slot where I publish my favorite recent releases. So in this column, I attempt to catch up to not two, but four weeks of music, closely curating the sound I loved. It doesn’t help that the labels have piled on their releases for the end of the year. So bare with me as I feature a heap of new output – I promise, it’s all worth your money and time! The entries are listed in no particular order.
