Dots Jukebox: New Music Part 7 – The Underground Youth, Empathy Test & Teleman

new music 1

As part of the run-up to my 100th Dots Jukebox, I wanted to do something a little bit different. I asked my music loving friends on Twitter to suggest their favourite song by a new artist (or the most recent they can think of), asking them to do so secretly. I compiled all suggestions, and instead of the normal Dots Jukebox evening, I’ve written a one line review of every song and will be revealing them over the course of two days.

@geniusmover selected Persona, from 2011 album Delirium by The Underground Youth.

Next up is @recrwplay‘s new music choice – it’s called Losing Touch and is by Empathy Test, from their EP of the same name (released in February).

A second outing for Teleman on this playlist is their song Cristina as chosen by @lennybun from their debut album, Breakfast.
