MODERATEROCKMIXTAPE- August 2023

The mixtape turned into some kind of monster this month. At 30 tracks I think it might even be the longest one of the year. But there were so many songs that I found, or, more accurately, that found me, that I instantly fell in love with. Some from brand new bands, others from long-established acts. Some from one-man (and indeed one-woman) bands, at least three from duos, and at least one from a band with an always-changing, never-final line-up. They all had something in common though, they kept me going this month, and I can’t recommend all of them enough.

I hope you find something to love.
