So much to unpack. This tune had me welling up from the minute Ria's voice broke through. There are so many strong and marvelous things about this tune and the way Ria writes from the instumentation to the production side of things.

My only set back was probably due to my ear not being 100% across the country scene but, the slight twang in the vocals was a texture that made me think...

Other than that - so great.

There's an Paul Kelly charm about this one.

If I was allowed to leave the house I'd go to the beach-side and listen to this as the sunsets. It's a contemplative track and a beautiful one at that.

When I buckled into this track I thought it was going to be a cruisey number but, it was way more of a roller coaster than I expected. Matilda really has great writing chops backed up by that heart-aching voice of hers.

Clear the d-floor. I'm cutting shapes.

Psychedelic, Dance floor, Jazz beats with flared disco pants on a yacht.

Tasteful soul with an old-school, yet, a new-age charm is tough to do. Rosie and The Quest make the quiet and delicate, sexy and powerful. Reminds me of Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings as well as Jorja Smith.

The garage, old-school, ska vibes are outrageously nostalgic. The grittiness of this tune is an excellent change of speed if you're looking for something outside of the norm.

Some tunes just feel magical and out of this world, and this is one of those tunes. Dom's work is gorgeous.

I have come to expect the unexpected, expansive and cinematic vibe to come through with Iain T. McKelvey tune. It's genuinely excellent.

You have tight vocals and a tight band (is it live?).
I can see myself listening to this on a tropical island, with a drink in my hand, facing the sunset and forgetting about the world.
Would love to know how this goes live, and if you have less of a clean feel?

I like the way BATTS writes. Since she released her debut last year, she seems to be on some kind of magical trajector towards her unique brand.

A powerful first tune from Nainiouman, compelling and, musically, it has strong ideas.
The rawness felt is palpable but, in the sense of the instrumentation and sound, I think there is room to be more defined. Nainiouman is a talented artist, and I think this is just the beginning of something great that needs time, growth and development.
