We’re thrilled that the Essential Sounds playlist is already at almost 400 subscribers; we hope you enjoyed the first week’s playlist! If you’re yet to subscribe, please click through and do so! We’ll continue to bring you new playlists every week with songs that are inspiring us, brand new releases and a smattering of old favourites.

This week kicks off with some Septic Tank savagery – and gives us the perfect opportunity to wish a (belated) happy birthday to close friend of Roadburn, Lee Dorrian, who turned 50 this past week!

Also included are tracks by Thou (who have recently announced a whole bunch of new releases), Nothing (who graced us with their presence at Roadburn back in 2014), Mirror Queen (who are showing us a whole new side to themselves), and of course the irrepressible Ghost!  It was seven years ago that Ghost stepped on to a Roadburn stage and a lot has happened in that time!
