The Sound Sniffer’s ‘Post’ Lockdown Mixtape #35

Slightly rebranded but the idea is the same. It may not be called The Lockdown Mixtape anymore but there was no chance in hell that this feature could be scrapped. I've invested too much time into these mixtapes, they became my go-to thing during 2020 and they are coming back after a brief hiatus. What's... Continue Reading →

They describe their sounds as art-gaze indie. I just describe it as feckin' brilliant. Palma Louca are a five-piece based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne who are guided by the Pillar Artists label who have been representing some great bands of late.

The Sound Sniffer’s Lockdown Mixtape | #005

Continuing on with the daily lockdown mixtape, I've got five more brand new tracks for you. This feature has been a nice little distraction and at least, it takes up an hour or so. We've nearly got through one weekend of lockdown 2.0 - it's been such a weird year, my daily routine is so... Continue Reading →

The Sound Sniffer’s Lockdown Mixtape | #004

Edition four of the daily lockdown mixtape. Assembling these daily lists is pretty good entertainment in these boring and bland times. Hopefully you are enjoying the tunes too.
