Beat The Delete #0108 (weekly new music recommendations)


Hello all and thanks for coming back for more new music recommendations courtesy of our Beat The Delete playlist.
Some people have been asking me to put these listS on a Spotify. I do not do that because a) I try and use Soundcloud or Bandcamp links as they automatically pull through to, b) There are regular instances (even on this list) where acts do not bother with Spotify and most importantly c) …I just can’t be arsed.
I hope that clears that up. However, click away at the following and remember to be arsed to give as much fiscal/social media love to the acts you like. or just to the music industry in general.
See ya next week…Daz
