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.

Lockdown life is giving us a strong sense of nostalgia, with one of our most enjoyable recent escapes being to the exotic location of Norwich. Perhaps best known for chef-turned-football-club-owner Delia Smith, we can also attest to it being the home of a top notch castle and a very nice carbonara pizza from Brick Pizza. And now, we can add self-proclaimed indie/emo outfit Marigolds and their "lil summer bops" to the list of Norwich's finest.

Jonsi 2020 Promotional Photo

Has it really been ten years since Jónsi's excellent debut solo album, 'Go'?? Apparently so. The Sigur Ros frontman has kept himself busy since then - appearing alongside his band mates in 'Game Of Thrones', providing music for the 'How To Train Your Dragon' film trilogy, working with partner Alex Somers as Jónsi And Alex, establishing Dark Morph with Swedish composer Carl Michael von Hausswolff, and much more. Listen to the soothing majesty of his latest effort, 'Exhale', below.

Mt. Wolf emerged as one of our favourite British bands of the last few years, and one that we'd had the pleasure of backing from the very start. The outfit are currently continuing as a duo, with singer-producer Sebastian 'Bassi' Fox opting to pursue his solo creative juices, having also dabbled in recent times with production for the likes of Roo Panes. Listen to the first official fruits of Bassi Fox's mesmeric labours below.

"We should multiply. Let this ship sink further, pretend everything's gonna be just fine." Now we're not saying that Matthew Murphy from The Wombats (in his new Love Fame Tragedy solo moniker) and Aussie artist Jack River predicted the global pandemic and subsequent response from various world leaders but it's hard not to relate some of the lyrics of their collab, 'Multiply', to the ongoing situation. Regardless, it's a banger.

Having put out music together since the mid-2010s, Dylan Brady and Laura Les encountered a paradigm shift last year for their 100 gecs project. Their experimental pop delivered one of the best albums of 2019 in an exhilarating 23 minute ride. One of the masterpieces of the '1000 gecs' album was the particularly poppy 'Ringtone', which has had the remix treatment from a golden trio - Kero Kero Bonito, Rico Nasty, and Charli XCX.
