Another week and another album release from Audioscope! To complement our new album Music For A Good Home 3, we really wanted to showcase the best of the music scene that we call home ourselves – Oxford.
So we’re proud to present our very own snapshot of the best music from Oxfordshire, Music For a Good Home – Oxford Edition. The album is made up of 19 tracks of new and exclusive music taking in every aspect of Oxford’s diverse and rich music scene.
Over the course of the album, we take in everything from the unforgiving doom metal of Undersmile and the heartfelt Americana of Toliesel, to the instrumental post rock of Listing Ships, and speakeasy jazz of The Original Rabbit Foot Spasm Band. There’s also the spiky post-punk of Spinner Fall and Hot Hooves, going alongside the droney experimentation of Opened Space and Lee Riley’s LR/GW project.
The album, which also features the beautiful songwriting of Jess Hall, Tamara and The Martyrs and Jordan O’Shea on its 19-strong tracklist, is released on 16 June for a minimum donation of just £4 to Shelter, and can be preordered now from www.musicforagoodhome.com
