Playlist for 6 Jan 2018 (AOTW: Rainbow Reservoir – Channel Hanna)

Click here to listen to the show again:

One of my many New Year resolutions which I manage to break every year is the plan to have an Album Of The Week every single week. Of course if I suddenly put out a show without one, there just wasn’t any good albums released, right? Wrong – will have to listen to MORE albums, not less, and just find them. There you go, there’s another resolution for you.

So without any further ado I can announced that my first AOTW from 2018 is the excellent CHANNEL HANNA from RAINBOW RESERVOIR. They’re and Oxford-based Anglo-American power-pop trio signed to Cardiff’s Oddbox Records, current home of the Darling Buds, Nervous Twitch, Peaness and lots more indie-pop goodness. Channel Hanna is out on 23 February and you can pre-order/buy it from here.
