While I have complained in the past that the summer does not provide us with the same glut of new music that the winter and spring are renowned for, August upset that trend as we were blessed with a plethora of new tracks to soundtrack our various festival destinations. In this month's mix we have a phenomenal new track from up and coming act Father Sculptor, along with more familiar faces such as WHY? and Ben Gibbard. Alunageorge's recent signing to Island records was met with little surprise as their incredible talent was made obviously clear in their new track 'Your Drums, Your Love', while the return of Abadabad makes for very welcome reading. Enjoy!
