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.

Producing soulful funky indie and powerful vocals with a rock edge sharp enough to give The Bellrays a run for their money is no mean feat, but Scruffy Bear’s Stories of Strange Women does just that.

Spiritual, empowering and most of all brilliant, the track is initially bass and vocal lead while the guitars quietly build into something akin to seeing Led Zeppelin in church. Ryan from the band said. “This song is for all the weirdos out there that second guess themselves. I grew up always taking solace in stories about unique people that stuck to their guns and didn’t change for someone else. Stand up and keep being weird and wonderful.” Amen to that.
