Dots Jukebox: New Music Part 8 – Honeyblood, The Burning Hell & Tim Hecker

new musicAs 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.

Glaswegian band Honeyblood‘s eponymous debut album is due out this July, and @damjef has chosen their song Killer Bangs.

The Burning Hell‘s song Amateur Rappers is the selection of @chops_top_fives. It’s from their 2013 album, People.

@grantsales has chosen Radiance by Tim Hecker, from the 2013 album entitled Virgins.
