I appreciate you for showing some love to these artists, streaming these albums is a really cool way to help this artist, remember to give them a follow, a + (Spotify), and a heart (social media), you might already know it but I have to say it: you rock! Waste no more time and let’s get to it!



1.- Gothic post-punk/garage-rock outfit Wax Heart Sodality released their debut self-titled EP. The four-track offering features previously released singles, including sinister barnstormer, Funny Games, which questions the haves-and-have-nots in modern society, and Live, Laugh, Love, a bold gothic ballad looking at reductionism in explaining life to the point of meaninglessness. Completing the EP Lick Skin/Taste Win and Shine.

2.- Placeholders is the debut EP by South West London-based band, Forest Bed. The band formed in late 2019 with the simple mission statement of making ‘slow, sad country music’ and have since expanded on their theme, taking in influences from English folk rock, alt-country, and post-rock. Inspired by classic recordings that prioritized character and atmosphere over perfection and polished production, the EP was recorded in one day and self-produced.

3.- “I (aya) care” EP is a result of a nice collaboration of the Ukrainian producer Oleksandr Kopyl aka OK Selekta and Belarusian folktronica singer Maryna Rusia Shukiurava aka Shuma. The idea of the EP is to combine some motifs from ancient Ayahuasca songs with modern soft electronic sounds. To make it organic, tender, and groovy, danceable at the same time.

4.- Ensuring My Uncertainty Jonah Leatherman’s second full-length LP, builds upon the foundation laid by their self-titled debut album released in January 2020. The opening track “Overlap” sets the tone for the entire album, capturing the essence of interconnectedness and the hidden beauty found within similarities.

5.- Milk St. sophomore LP ‘V3RM0NT’ released on Friday, September 1st! Dealing with themes of self-reflection, mind expansion, and a handful of mushroom trips, ‘V3RM0NT’ is a unique and thought-provoking experience. Sonically, it’s unlike anything you typically hear in alternative music, fusing twangy acoustic guitar with upbeat punk rhythms and straight-up chaotic energy.

6.- Darren Deschaine‘s instrumental debut EP “Unravel”. His aggressive guitar style channels the demon-slaying anger of the likes of Mick Gordon (DOOM, DOOM Eternal) and the careful planning of Tosin Abasi (Animals As Leaders). He combines the super low ends of an eight-string guitar with searing leads and chaotic synth patterns to produce a truly unique and engaging soundscape.

7.- Sylvia Blair‘s debut EP “Figuring It Out” in her own words: “It is meticulously thought out, fresh, and captivating! At a tight 17 minutes, each song takes you through a melodic and lyrical journey. It’s genre-bending, motivation-inducing, and an all-around pick-me-up.”

8.- Repulsive Woman, aka Millicent Lovelock, “The Even Hand“. ‘No Flowers,’ the opening track of the EP, was written on the back of an envelope in a cafe in Oxford in the dead of winter while Lovelock was on tour with her other band, Astro Children. Lovelock was in the midst of a painful break-up and a two-month-long DIY tour of Europe. The song explores the breakdown of a relationship and the often parallel lines of communication that run through such an experience.

9.- Lorsay‘s third EP “Spring Fever“. Formed in 2020 and led by Alex Gomez (guitar, machines), singer Orey, bassist Rémy Peyrot des Gachons, and keyboardist Fred Chauvin, Lorsay is an electro-pop group established between Paris and the south of France. Mixing electro-post-rock and melancholic pop, their musical style combines melodies, acoustic instruments, and electronic machines.
