It’s been a bit quiet recently musically around town. There are always fewer gigs, and I thought there hadn’t been that many new releases until I sat down to write today’s new music post, and it turns out that maybe it’s not quite as quiet as I’d realised. As per our last new music post, we’ve now got a spotify playlist for all the new tracks:
Wild Cat Strike / Everyone Feels The Same (Blood Orange Sessions) Luvia / Kiss Salt Ashes / Into The Groove Gnarlah / Slave Oxomo / What You Told Yourself (feat Boudicca) Garden Centre / Wide Sea Yassi V / You Deserve Better JOSEPHPOISON / Apollo (from Life Is Precious EP) Eden Farrow / How To Treat An Ex Yakul / Getting Late (feat Louis IV) (from Getting Late EP) Time for T / Screenshot Distant Animals / Weaves Harry Aiden / Somebody Better (Thomas Godel remix) Zac Samuel / Take It Back
And here’s the non-spotify bits:
BUNKR / For The Birds (from forthcoming The Initiation well album)

Paper Hawk launch their new EP The Tide (which featured in yesterday’s new music post) at The Marlborough tomorrow night (Wed 2nd May). Support comes from Jacko Hooper and Josh McGovern.
Another single launch we spotted, also from a band who were in last night’s post, is Yakul‘s launch of their single Realigned. It takes place at Patterns on Wednesday 9th May, and Yakul are joined on the night by Isle of CC and Chloe Badur playing live and Tru Thoughts’ J Felix DJing.
