Monthly Roundup-March 2017

Here is the March edition of our new monthly feature. A monthly roundup of what we feel are the best releases for that month. It's very simple, just highlighting whats been good in a month's time. We hope you can use this tool as a way to hear some new tunes. This one's a big one! There were 5 fridays this month!!! ENJOY!


Highlights among the highlights:

The increasing weirdness that is the new Garden EP!

An abrupt 180 turn from Sondre Lerche, he dropped his folky indie pop sound for a batshit crazy 80s sound and ended up making his best album yet!

The 50 song behemoth that is the new Magnetic Fields 5 disc box set. If you loved 69 Love Songs there is a lot for you to like here.

Super weird yet very hypnotic and addicting manipulated accordion music from Mario Batkovic

The complete emotional devastation that is Mount Eerie's A Crow Looked At Me. A stark look at the artist's wife's death from cancer, easily one of the most emotionally heavy albums I have ever heard. It made me cry.

The chilled out stoner backyard bbq summer jams of Tonstartssbandht's new album!

And last but not least the kick ass new rhythmic blast that is the new Soulwax album, a welcome return from some older gentlemen of the Techno scene!
