      Millie says: Ranging from Marie Bryant, The Lion, Billy Sholanke, Trinidad Steel Band and a whole host of brilliant artists, Volume 7 is the next installation of music from the Windrush generation, this is vital listening.

      Millie says: Volume 8 carries just as much great sounds in the series London Is The Place For Me, dedicated to Lord Kitchener, he’s been titled the greatest calypsonian of the post-war age, and rightly so!

      Nothing felt as if it would ever be the same again when Stephen Malkmus left Pavement and consigned one of the greatest bands of the 90s to history. But fear not, because Nashville's Lone Official have picked up the indie rock torch. Produced by Mark Nevers (veteran of Will Oldham, Silver Jews, Calexico, Lambchop and Candi Staton) Lone Official sing alternative rock songs with subtle Americana references (pedal steel, baseball, aviation, road trips) and more obtuse topics (like French sportswear on "Le Coq Sportif"), delivered by Matt Burton's part Tom Verlaine, part Kurt Wagner loquacious vocals.
