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 Colour And Light, Nel Unlit cellist and multi-instrumentalist Harriet Bradshaw turns her expert hand to pure folk with enough contemporary stylistic adaptations for fans of Björk and Rufus Wainwright.

Gentle piano and guitar are, at times, subtly filmic but still leave room for an Appalachian violin segment that pushes the track towards a strange melancholy as Harriet brings her appreciation of the local landscape to life in song. Harriet explains: “This song came from a love of landscape, both in painting and poetry, and I took inspiration from the North Yorkshire Moors and the Tynemouth coastline, both of which are favourite spots of mine.”
