Blimey, it’s been a while since God Is in The TV featured the last RW/FF Compilation, about a month and a half to be more precise. The last one was a Sound Of Summer special, so it’s somewhat appropriate that the latest one should arrive in September as the evenings begin to start sooner. Watch out for the next volume (Volume 23), which will be online at the end of the week. Struggling to hear good new music? In need of some fresh sounds? I believe in 2014 is the best time for new music we have had in years, but thanks to the people in control of the mainstream, not many people are hearing the good stuff. The regular RW/FF Compilation is here to help. It showcases the music that has featured on the RW/FF site over the last few weeks.
Just imagine if the ‘Now!’ albums featured the best recent music instead of lowest-common-denominator shite… they would sound like this! I don’t have regular dates set for each of these mixtape-type things, instead I just wait until I have an 80 minute CD’s worth of great new music to make up each compilation. Contrary to what some people think, there is plenty of excellent new music out there, as is proved by every one of these brilliant mixes.
