As Caroline Baker states in the intro of the blink-and-you'll-miss-it brilliance of EP opener 'Colorado', "I don't know where to start". Perhaps the obvious elephant in the room, attributing a new/emerging artist moniker to someone with more than 20 million Spotify streams but in our defence, many a search engine result still primarily leads to Leeds band Caro rather than the Nashville pop-led solo artist. If you haven't heard of this Caro then allow us to introduce her to your ears.

So we've not quite caught up to the Twitch "craze" yet and its rising prominence amongst the gaming community, but they've now partnered with Soundcloud - an off-shoot being their channel on the platform. Their Fast Track series features musicians creating beats in ninety minutes or so, and the latest edition showcases the skills of the recent Mercury Prize-nominated Georgia, somewhat channeling her 2019 smash hit 'About Work The Dancefloor'.

Having built a formidable reputation through their energetic live shows, 2020 should have seen Haiku Hands absolutely dominate the festival circuit with their blistering girl-power-infused synthy dance-pop. For good reason, that didn't happen this year for the Aussie triumvirate. But through all the bad news, we're pleased to confirm that their self-titled debut album has channelled their performances most excellently.

Having been moved back already on multiple occasions, Record Store Day UK 2020 finally launched today, August 29th. The "Day" has, in fact, been separated into three dates - with releases also due on 26th September (including 'Say My Name' by Destiny's Child on 12" vinyl) and 24th October (featuring Eminem's 'My Name Is' on 7"). For today's releases, we'd like to highlight Art Brut's special 'Modern Art' project, with three hundred personalised record sleeves, organised and released by Alcopop Records.

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!
