Apologies for there being no playlist last week. Officially it was because we were busy working on the announcement we made yesterday – it was a lot of work – but unofficially, it’s because I ran out of new Perfume Genius songs. Thankfully that’s been rectified and we’re now back in business!

This week’s playlist features Have A Nice Life, Street Sects, Dawn Ray’d, and Une Misere – all of whom have played Roadburn in the past and have new music out. Who is anticipating Have A Nice Life’s upcoming album more than us? Nope… nobody.

Special thanks to these guys who have their ear to the ground and help to feed us a steady stream of new music to consider for these playlists: Davey, Jo, Gijs, Maarten, José and Brent.

Anyway, crack on, dive in, sink under the surface of this week’s playlist.
