We’re delighted to present you with the latest edition of our annual compilation album, celebrating our 17th birthday! As ever, we’ve hand-picked a mixture of artists – from new faces to veterans alike – that we feel have had an amazing twelve months. Head over to our Bandcamp page to listen and download the tracks for free.

On Michael’s Song talented teen Cosial secretly crushes on The Sundays with a nice slab of astral indie. Singer Cece was upfront about the song’s meaning: “I’m 18 years old, and my songs reflect this messy navigation of young adult life. In Michael’s Song, I tried to capture the feeling of constantly playing second fiddle to someone – constantly chasing something and coming up short. Michael is just a side character, he’s the guy you use to make someone else jealous. This song gave me a real sense of direction.”

The lyrics are sharp, the sentiment concise and reflective with a maturity and uneasy clarity unusual in one so young.
