Free Download: Hayley Cassidy ‘Stripped’ (full album)

Hayley Cassidy

I would have happily paid for this album from up-and-coming, unsigned London talent, Hayley Cassidy. That’s how impressive this piece of work is. Title track ‘Stripped’ is specially brilliant.

New Music: Garrett Pierce

Garrett Pierce

This is not my usual style of Friday posting on here but I am such a sucker for this kind of country sound. I have no idea why, but it just feels like it’s giving me a giant, warm hug. Check out here.

First Listen: Phil Beaudreau ‘This Is Why’ (Feat. Dawaun Parker)

Phil Beaudreau

A new cut from Phil Beaudreau, and one of my top tracks of the week (and month so far). I fell for this within the first two or three seconds.

Terrifying, sinister rap. Chilling in a good way, though. Check out here.

New Music: Black Madonna

Probably the most unconventional track you’ll hear this week, this is from new Swedish group Black Madonna. It’s melodic, heavy and sad, but you just can’t define what it ultimately sounds like. Check out here.
