Great compilation from genre defying London outfit, Button Eyes, as we finally get all their beautiful songs in one place. Button Eyes first came to my attention with the release of Simple Days and A Fever, back in 2013, which featured vocalists Gemma Williams and Rag’N’Bone Man – still some of my favourite work of his to date – as well Please Don’t Take My Blues, featuring contemporary blues man, CW Jones. Now thanks to Lewis Lindgren (184, Taunton Manor etc.), the man behind the music, we have those tracks alongside later releases like Chemicals and Erase Me. Nobody’s Baby is available to stream below and downloads are available via Western Decadence. Read the rest of this entry »

You might remember me covering Restbyte when it arrived earlier this year. It’s yet another impeccable beat tape from one of the UK’s most innovative producers, Morriarchi. The 18 track showcase has gone down so well that Morri has decided to do a limited run of cassette versions too. They are available to purchase now over on his Bandcamp and if you want to try before you buy, you can do so below. Read the rest of this entry »

Beautiful sounds on the new EP from vocalist Fiona Jane, as she teams up with producer LRD, for The Exit. The two met on Brapp, where LRD has been making a lot of noise for the past couple of years.
