And once more it’s a bumper sized playlist. This time split into A-side and B-side. The first takes a tour through the world’s indie outpour, the next digs deep into transient vibes. For those I didn’t review, my sincerest, everything on this list deserves hearing. And for listeners, song lovers, those with aural fixations… I do hope you enjoy the ride.
