All things considered, March 2020, wasn't all that long ago. But with subsequent lockdowns across the world in order to control the global pandemic, in some respects, it feels a lifetime ago! New York's Overcoats released their second album, 'The Fight', back in March and in case you missed out then, here's a taste of the album with the dulcet melodic tones of 'Keep The Faith'.

"Electric Fire, we're going to take you higher!" So say exuberant London four-piece funkers Electric Fire on their appropriately titled 'Club Smash', the opening track to their 2018 debut 'EFX' EP. And they're undoubtedly correct. Their latest 2020 EP continues the infectious and energetic sentiment - truly 'Buzzin'' by name, buzzin' by nature!

The Streets artwork

2011's 'Computer And Blues' was supposedly the final album from The Streets, which is probably why Mike Skinner's latest release (twelve tracks, clocking in at almost forty minutes) is being peddled as a mixtape rather than an album. But we're not complaining! 'None Of Us Are Getting Out Of This Life Alive' is a welcome return, bleak title aside, and we're particularly fond of the low key 'Falling Down'.

The protests worldwide for civil rights, led by the Black Lives Matter movement, indicate an appetite for change that is long overdue. As a black queer woman, Nashville's Joy Oladokun has more experience than most of inequality and injustice, channelling her thoughts on the incredible and poignant 'Who Do I Turn To?'

We only recently found out Sophie Payten aka Aussie musician Gordi is a qualified medical doctor, who has stepped back into her duties as a result of the global pandemic. And that’s on top of her incredible work as a solo artist. It’s unreal how talented some people are, as can be seen on the a02Sk mix of her brilliant latest release ‘Unready’.

Where we do we begin with Joy-Rides? The London experimental jazz-punk noiseniks released their debut album this week, 'There Are No Mistakes', and we've been lucky enough to have a chat about it with frontperson and all-round-good-person Kieran Toms.
