    This is possibly the strongest line up of tracks I have heard so far in one week on Freshnet. (of course everyone’s opinion is different within music ) narrowing these down to five is going take some time.

  2. Second attempt first attempt I’d inadvertently picked six which proves how hard it’s been to select just the five this week. I echo the earlier comment that it is one of the strongest selections for a while. Good luck choosing just five from this group of top notch tunes folks.

    AZON – We Are One (A Creative Collaboration)
    THE HOWL & THE HUM – Manea
    STRESS DOLLS – Pills
    TOKYO TEA ROOM – Sunset Exit
    WACO – Coolangatta

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    Very difficult to choose. If I am going for guitar orientated bands I’d choose Stress Dolls ‘Pills’ with it’s instant hook and exciting guitar and vocals. Berries ‘Wild Vow’ with their big riff and chorus, and stunning musicianship throughout.
