AUDIOSCOPE is perhaps one of the highlights of Oxford's musical year: Despite hosting Truck Festival and punching well above its weight in the musical stakes, the city of dreaming spires combines its love for great music and charitable causes by hosting the one-day festival which raises money for Shelter in the process. In the build up to the event, AUDIOSCOPE have revealed the second annual compilation: Music For A Good Home. The massive 40 track record, which stretches to over three hours, features cuts from Four Tet, Clinic, a Portishead reworking of Ride's 'Moonlight Medicine' and this year's festival headliner, Damo Suzuki most notably.
It is also worth taking note of Oxford's young up and coming acts that feature: Kill Murray and Gunning For Tamar lead the way in the rock stakes, with the former taking cues from Dinosaur Jr. and the latter doing what Biffy can't manage anymore, but better. In addition, it would be impossible not to mention the inclusion of an unreleased treasure from the very much-missed Ute: Oxford's favourite psych-folk warlords.
You can stream the entire compilation via AUDIOSCOPE's bandcamp, and also purchase it for a mere fiver, which is an absolute bargain and will also be an invaluable donation towards helping the country's homeless.
