This week we go through another delicious stash of new and upcoming releases, many of them launched on Bandcamp on 1 May for the 'waived fee' events the website is promoting every first Friday of the month to support musicians in the time of Covid19. The cherry on top? The much anticipated first single, sung by Nick Cave, from Hal Willner's last production, Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan & T. Rex.

Happy listening!
