On this episode of Nocturnal we dive into 10 new tracks. A shorter set than usual, but it’s been an enormous week for music released, especially on Bandcamp, where they waived fees once again. This week’s set begins with an old, but new track from Daniel Bachman, who I saw perform live just last summer in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at WSCA. We also have a few tracks from the new Rough Trade Publishing / Bank Robber compilation supporting Black Lives Matter. I hope you enjoy this week’s selections.
