“So 2011 has been a pretty good year so far in terms of great releases, and it’s only July! We thought, rather than wait until December, we’d get some of that music out there for our readers via a FREE compilation.
We present to you Snapshots 2011, featuring 15 tracks from some out our favourite records this year, and you can download it here. It includes Wild Flag (two-thirds of Sleater-Kinney), Shapes, Tubelord, Maybeshewill and more! Some bands you may have heard, others you may not. Hopefully you’ll find a new band or two to explore!
