I’m going to take this next sentence to be all reflective and nostalgic – a REview before the PREview, if you will. 2012 was GREAT.
If you have lots of cake and coffee, like me, and then read this list, you will know that there is a lot for you to be excited about too!:!:!:!:!
OMG Oktober is a fucken feast. Obviously the Norwich music event of the year is happening...
A collection of songs recorded during the Unthanks tour last year, when they returned to their roots, singing unaccompanied and in harmony. More a miscellany of tunes than a curated collection, this is nonetheless what traditional folk music is all about - reflecting on hard times with both stoicism and good humour. It's a timely reminder of happier times, when folk congregated in big rooms and listened to other people singing.
It’s so very, very good to be reacquainted with White Ladder, this the 20th anniversary limited deluxe edition comes with as you would probably expect some previously unreleased tracks of original demos, rarities and B sides and for the first time ever it’s even released on vinyl.

King Nun really broke out in 2018, but with their latest album ‘Mass’ they’ve matured and really hit their stride. Label mates with the 1975, Japanese House and Wolf Alice, they’re in good company to get some serious traction.
