Every end of the month we are releasing a round up of reviews of recent releases that moved us the most. These are the personal takes on hand-curated gems our team dug up (and the occasional chart topper). This time with Indigo Sparke, Ultraflex, Bonny Light Horseman, Charlotte Dos Santos, Skullcrusher, Dry Cleaning, Pip Millett and Loyle Carner. What will be your favourite?
Every Friday music fans are faced with the same burning question: What to listen to from the sheer endless sea of new albums, EPs and other releases? Don't worry, the people of NBHAP are here to help you with that. Our very own release roundup gives you a quick overview on the music that matters the most this week.
New year, same crisis? Well, not when it comes to new musical talent. We're still amazed by the countless wonderful newcomers that find their way into our inboxes on a regular basis. There are many great new artists out there waiting to be discovered and today the writers of NBHAP would like to share ten personal highlights with you, which we'll be keeping on our radars over the next twelve months.
What a freakin' year this has been! This sentence might be more true than at any moment in the past years. The Corona pandemic had a massive impact on pretty much all of our lives, the music industry and quite possibly also the rest of society. In the absence of live music events the songs and records that were released remained an anchor and provided much needed comfort in a difficult time. These are our fifty favourite tracks from this rollercoaster ride called 2020.
The tender "Farm" is another prime example of the songwriter's musical qualities. Discover it in our playlist this week along with music by Anna Mae, Oscar Anton, Hope Waidley, I Want Poetry, Emis Wes and more.
The mysterious three-piece from London unravels nocturnal bliss just in time for a new update of our melancholic Spotify playlist. Their haunting song "The Other Side" is a fitting choice to open the selection and we invite you all to experience it right here.
