#MODERATEROCKRECOMMENDS- March 2018

March’s Spotify playlist was a monster. It started heavy with the like of Will Haven (who just released their best record in almost 20 years), Yards (featuring former Ghost of a Thousand frontman Tom Lacey), and Rolo Tomassi (who might have snatched album of the year honours already) before moving on to include punk rock old and new, post-hardcore from South Korea, emo from China, and electro-rock (?) from France. Then there’s a few slow-burners at the end, including the most eerie cut from the Annihilation soundtrack. If the movie is fantastic but flawed, the soundtrack is something else- maybe even the best work of composers Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury.

Every single note here floats my boat. I hope you find something to love.
