The Round Up: March '17

THE ROUND UP: MARCH '17

APRIL 2017

We're back once again with the hotly anticipated Round Up. 
 
March fed us a bounty of music, new and old. Amongst many other fantastic releases, here's what we've had on replay: Hector Plimmer's dreamy percussive debut, Sunshine; the recently repressed Friday Night from Nigerian disco don Livy Ekemezie; Sade's smooth Diamond Life (a favourite of Jasper's); 80s avant-punk courtesy of ESG; Kelly Lee Owens' glistening, floor-filling self-titled debut; and the muted ambient tones of Arve Henriksen's Chiaroscuro.
 
Take your pick.


AS ALWAYS, CLICK ON A PIECE OF ARTWORK TO HEAR A TRACK FROM THAT RELEASE.
