January was a fairly quiet month for new music, so our second post of the year has taken until February. We’re going to start large, with one of the biggest bands from round these parts.

Across the three nights there are tracks from Porridge Radio, Garden Centre, LC Pumpkin, GAPS, Dog in the Snow, KUB, Immersion, Eva Bowan and Merlin Tonto
