Dots Jukebox: New Music Part 9 – Jagwar Ma, False Lights & Wolf Alice

new music 1As 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.

@southallio chose Jagwar Ma for new music, and specified Man I Need as his favourite track. This song is from their 2013 debut album, Howlin’.

Next up, we have @annatheforager‘s selection – False Lights‘ song Polly on the Shore, from their debut EP due for release in July.

Wolf Alice are the choice of @rorsdm, specifically their song Storms from their EP Creature Songs, which was released this May.
