This week, as opposed to the last, was full of great releases. It feels like we are working ourselves back to a life we once knew, but are also taking advantage of the coda of what was an extremely creative and productive period for artists and musicians. There’s some brand new stuff here by fresh projects and some well-known names, but we are kicking off with a surprisingly excellent comeback from someone who is an indie veteran . Altogether, this is a colourful and musically varying list to delight the ears and mind. As always, enjoy!
