  1. Recorded Music appears to be as vibrant as it ever was – despite the fact that the majority of mass media output is dominated by fewer organisations. Thank goodness there are still places like this providing a respected insight of emerging artists and new music. I loved the variety here but struggled to find 5 that connected with me on first listen … but that’s a positive indicator that there is a real cross-section of genre/taste being represented. Thanks for the insight – keep up the good work.

    CAJSA SIIK – Talk to Trees
    FLORA CASH – Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine)
    GUS WHITE – Life Is But A Dream
    LORNA DEA – By Now
    MICHAEL BAKER MUSIC – Revolving Doors

    Easily the best week in a long time – Tough for us to whittle it down to the 25 odd tracks up there and certainly harder to get it down to five. Enormous shouts out to the brilliant BEWARE! BEWARE! and CAJSA SIIK as well. I’d be happy to offer support to those I’ve listed. Well, and others too. Much love to All x

    FLORA CASH – Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine)
    SANDS – Poison in You

  4. Thanks to all who submitted this week, even if you didn’t make the Listen Post “cut”.

    Here is my choice:

    ANNA PANCALDI – Bother
    CAJSA SIIK – Talk to Trees
    LOLA DUTRONIC – Everybody Loves You When You’re Dead: The Sequel
    LUXLISBON – When You Need Somebody

  5. That was fun, strange how much my mood decides what I choose. I was feeling a bit relaxed otherwise I might have made other choices.

    Stay Warm.

    VICTORY KICKS …turned up loud …. runs away with it as my favourite song this week.
    LAPP is a class song too, the changes within and the amazing lyrics stand out.

    PIP HALL – Turn Over
    THE METATRONS – It’s Me Or The Cat
    VICTORY KICKS – Promising Authors
    VIDA SOPHIA – I Never Surf

    The VICTORY KICKS is a great sounding track, possibly my favourite but it does kind of outstay its welcome. Uploading a much shorter single edit to BBC Introducing will definitely help get it the radio love it deserves…

  31. BEWARE! BEWARE! – Gilded Waves -uncluttered arrangement, everything works from the bass upwards.
    CAJSA SIIK – Talk to Trees. -Classy Scandipop,reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac 70s-80s.
    LUXLISBON – When You Need -Somebody strong band sound (their version of With the Beatles bears a good listen)
    MICHAEL BAKER MUSIC – Revolving Doors-Wow what a chorus, spiritual like.
    VIDA SOPHIA – I Never Surf-quirky, David Lynch does Jan and Dean
