The Matinee August 3rd

The Matinee August 3rd

The Matinee August 3rd heavily features North American artists, which might have to do with me returning to my old stomping grounds. It also reflects how great the new music singles are from this part of the world. Given that I’m on holidays, the descriptions are shorter, and I apologize to the artists and bands.   Annie Hart – “Hard […]

Two months ago, they released an amusing single, “Big Mac (Run Rate)” and a year ago an EP, Tom’s Lunch. They’ve […]
