So here’s the best of a month so full of new music that the showcase comes in twice as long. Settle in, find your groove and get listening. ‘Cus right here are your summer essentials.
“Let this be a showcase of the sounds and aesthetics Kick so pleasurably tangle together. Now go dig out their latest LP. It’ll creep slowly up on you too…”
“Said it twice and I’ll say it again… creative, relentless and restless. The Loud Bangs have a beat on the pulse of a sound and twist those themes upwards and outwards…”
Sun’s out, synths are shining, and summer’s salubrious sounds a-buzzin’ This is the best of June’s tunes and submissions.

This is music direct to your ears. A light shone on uncovered gems. Here’s the very best of 2021.
It’s a playlist for pummel and pleasure. An hour of new music hand crafted and sculpted like a C86 mixtape for lovers…
