ARTISTS:
The point of this page is to try out your music on strangers. The votes you get here will not increase your chances of radio airplay. So PLEASE DON’T tell friends/family/fans you’re on the Listening Post this weekend – they’ll take it as a hint to come and vote for you.

We can always tell when lots of new people show up and start voting for one particular artist and we always disqualify those artists instantly and permanently.

But hey, your music’s in this list because we loved it: chances are that other people will love it too. So why not spread the love around and tell us YOUR favourite five among the other artists – come back and vote in future weeks too – help us help genuine new talent get heard.

  13. Another ludicrously tough 25 this week. Almost all my original moderation choices and several of those that I would have voted for on another day have all made the cut. Shayne Dalva’s track is so original and striking. Kizzy Crawford once again impresses. Mei’s track is powerful and distinct. Young Pilgrims bring stunning musicianship and Bored at my Grandma’s House present a stripped down version of their own sound and still manage to captivate with those harmonies and organic playing.

    So, with more than honourable mentions to Annsofie Salomon; Blokeacola; Palace Cats; Colourtelly; Feeo; Parity Bit – look, I may as well say the entire list! Well, whoever ends up being in the fresh faves, it will be a top-notch ten tunes. So just leaves me to say have a great weekend everyone, stay safe and happy voting. xxxx

    Liked the Greek vibe in Eileen Alanna — Memories Are Precious , the strong brass parts in Young Pelgrims’s Rufio, the Latin groove of Kizzy Crawford, and the depth of songwriting that was done by Nova Soon.
