Thanks for checking my latest blog. I hope you and your loved ones are well.
Music is really helping me at present. It's power offers me escapism, a chance to switch off, to research, discover or rediscover. And music unites. Even with the country in lockdown music finds a way to bring people together, to share their love, to escape.
There has been no shortage of stripped back online shows and Tim Burgess has been curating Twitter listening parties to bring people together online, with artists and fans sharing memories of classic and much loved albums. Follow #timstwitterlisteningparty
Music offers hope.
I tend to round up some of the music I have been listening to in a monthly blog on my Never Ending Mixtape, but here is a little bonus blog and a list of music added to the Mixtape Playlist.
As always, I hope you find something you enjoy. A full list of the latest additions is below.

Re-discovery - The Bends by Radiohead
I re-listened to the whole of The Bends by Radiohead on the 25th anniversary of its release. That very week, my brother and I caught the band at The Garage in Glasgow as the band celebrated a number one record. The Bends is a stunning album and the title track blew me away with powerful guitar riffs and sensational powerful vocals.

Kind of Flaming Lips-y, Polyphonic Spree-y, psychedelic pop.
Elsewhere enjoy a few gems from BMX Bandits, the majestic Bunnymen, the funk groove of Patti Jo, Marvin and Tammi in love and some brilliant indie guitar from Galaxie 500. And much, much more.
