NEW MUSIC THURSDAY #5
30 Apr 2020
Every Thursday we’re sharing NEW MUSIC THURSDAY featuring recent discoveries, new acts we're currently listening to and our tips for the future. Now more than ever we feel it’s so important to mine the corners of the internet to find some of the wonderful creativity that abounds… Don’t forget tomorrow Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share on all purchased which means 100% of the revenue go the artists. It’s time more than ever to support them.
Check out this week’s below:
Long-time favourite at RFB, we discovered New Orleans-based Video Age via their LP "Pop Therapy" in 2018. We also were lucky enough to have the chance to see them last September at Pop Montreal. They've just release a new single "Shadow On The Wall" via Brooklyn based Winspear records.
