Music For A Good Home – £1,200 raised so far!

Music For A Good Home 3 and Oxford Edition were released a month ago today and we’re very happy to say that the two albums combined have raised more than £1,200 so far!

Music for a Good Home has had some lovely coverage in the press too, including a brilliant interview about how the albums came together on BBC Radio Oxford, which is well worth a listen. The Quietus wrote a lovely piece, calling us ‘ace’ and the album ‘brilliant’ and The405 gave Music for a Good Home 3 a glowing 8/10 review, saying ‘there are many important reasons to buy Audioscope’s latest collection of exclusives’.

We want to thank each and every one of you who’s bought a copy, but we also know that there’s a long way to go – every copy sold means more money towards Shelter’s vital work fighting homelessness and bad housing. So if you’ve not bought a copy, we’d love it if you’d consider picking one up. And if you have bought the albums, please tell a friend!


Music For A Good Home is out today!

The big day is here at last! Today (16 June) we release not one, but TWO fantastic albums.

Music For A Good Home 3 – 31 new and exclusive tracks from the best alternative musicians around the world
Music For A Good Home – Oxford Edition – our snapshot of the vibrant Oxfordshire music scene

The most important thing to know is that because every single band and artist has donated their music for free, all of the proceeds from both albums go directly to helping Shelter’s vital work fighting homelessness and bad housing in the UK.

We’ve been touched and inspired by the goodwill, support and energy for the cause and for Audioscope that every artist has shown while we’ve been putting the album together. There’s a total of FIFTY tracks across two albums, taking in everything from electronica and experimental noise to beautiful folk and raucous guitars, there really is something for everyone.

Here’s what John Parish, who donated beautiful track ‘That Car’, said to us.


Amon Tobin, John Parish and 29 more team up for ‘Music For A Good Home 3’

As anticipated last week, we have exciting news!

We’re back with a brand new edition, Music For A Good Home 3, which is now available to pre-order at

Once again, all the tracks are new, exclusive or rare, and we have 31 of the most exciting and innovative artists from all around the world, all donating tracks to help us fight homelessness.

Music For a Good Home 3 takes in everything from the woozy electronica of Amon Tobin, Seefeel and Dirty Beaches, through to the earnest songwriting of John Parish and Dave Heumann (Arbouretum).
