How do you keep an overview about the countless new releases in the world of music? Well, easier said than done but thank god the staff of NBHAP keeps an overview. In this column one from the team personnally reflects on the past four weeks and the music that matters during this time. This time it's the turn of Liv Toerkell to ramble about our favourite passion in the world.
The first summer of self isolation is approaching soon and it will be a different one on my levels. However, we still got the beauty of music to comfort us and for these times our summerly playlist likes to be a fitting companion. This season's update features fresh songs by Lianne La Havas, Faye Webster, Real Estate, Pure X, Washed Out, Feng Suave, Núria Graham, Land of Talk, Khruangbin and other favourites of ours.
The Corona pandemic is a tough time for all of us but for artists and musicians especially. With the concert sector forced to shut down, new sources of income are crucial for them in order to survive. Buying a record can help here, even if it's just a digital purchase, but that's obviously more effective than streaming it on Spotify. Today, on May 1st Bandcamp has decided to waive its cut of sales again, giving all proceeds to the artists. The first time they did that they raised over $4 million so let's do this again. Here, the NBHAP staff presents some of their personal recommendations. Feel kindly invited to give as much as you can.
