It is that time of the month again where we look back at what was dominating our playing time in the previous month.

Expect to be hearing a fair bit in the future from this radio-friendly alternative soul act. Their debut EP Clay came out on the 28th of August and their tracks have already been given prominent airplay time in Austria and Germany. There is an ease to their music which is not easy to come by. Their tracks could easily find their way into your party playlist or onto your hangover SOS stream.
A nostalgic blend of dream-pop and post-punk with some synth-pop flourishes is how the band describe their music. GGOOLLDD’s debut EP Younger Days was released earlier this month and this is the impressive title track. It has a happy-go-lucky feel which will bring a bigger smile to your face with every listen.
Fare Thee Well is the third single from the debut album The Autumn Came by Berlin-based indie folk bandCharityChildren. The heart-breaking lyrics for the song are adapted from a 17th Century anonymous poem in The Penguin Book of English Folk Songs whereby somebody mourns the loss of their dearest friend by drowning
The second time we have featured Salt Cathedral. Holy Soul is off their forthcoming EP Oom Velt which comes out on 9th of September. It is another hypnotizing offering from the band who continue to show great promise with every song they release. Definite ones to look out for in the future.
Dreamghost is the solo moniker of Stephen Edwards, an 18 year old producer hailing from Colorado Springs. He makes an intriguing mixture of electro hip hop with Weird Grammar verging on almost lazy in its musical style. But sometimes it is good to slow down a notch or two every now and again.
Wild Smiles – Never Wanted This WildSmiles will release their debut album, Always Tomorrow, on Sunday Best Recordings on 27th October. The fast-rising trio, comprising brothers Chris and Joe Peden with drummer Ben Cook, recently released their new single, Never Wanted This. Check it out below.
