Since we get quite a few submissions but cannot take everything on, or can’t for whatever reason do a complete write-up, we decided to make a weekly recommendations list from January the 15th onwards. The list will be here on the blog, but also on The Soundcloud page soon enough! This way, we can give a lot more songs that we consider worth listening to, a shout out. Hope you will enjoy the new feature and that, despite it not starting out as the best, 2021 will be a better year!
This week, new releases from Stereolab, Ruby Haunt, Origami Phase, Wa’el & TOVE, Dream People, Juno Roome and Isla Invisible.

I am also the other half of twee outfit Nah… and retropop duo Sapphire & Steel
