"Starstruck" - Sorry
A fine entry in the "disfunctional norff lahndan pop" genre.
"Drops" - Champagne Dub
Eine kleine electrofunkgristle.
"Bubo" - Bill Baird
Ooo. Looky. Nice Fluke-esque thing here.
"No Future In Our Front Man" - Natalie Prass
Of the many versions of Matthew E. White's Trump-baiting "No Future In Our Frontman" this is my fave.
"All Choked Up" - BRONCHO
The stoned cousin of "In Bloom".

In which I blow my own digital simulation of a trumpet.
"Unwind" - J Fernandez
Lo-fi, proggy, hippy, lush and discordant all at the same time.
"Mother" - Haley Heynderickx & Max Garcia Conover
This is apparently farm music. Haunting, beautiful farm music.

What an unbelievably sparse and splendid thing this is.
"Into the Fire" - These New Puritans
Jack and George from Southend-on-Sea would like to get into the soundtrack business.
"Altar (feat. Anna Burch)" - Fred Thomas
I'm still not 100% sure why Fred Thomas isn't a global megastar - very few people write better pop songs*. Maybe this time, eh Fred?
"Takeda No Komoriuta" - Spirit Fest
Gentle Japanese occassional electric folk pop something something.
"Stop Him" - Honey Hahs
This is genuinely wonderful. Even if it does make me feel. So. Very. Old.
