Chris Porter & The Pollies

Porter & The Pollies, but separately this time around. I’ve been listening to Chris Porter since The Back Row Baptists days. Broken Hearts & Bad Decisions by The Back Row Baptists, Some Dark Holler’s album and that Porter & The Pollies EP/mini-album. I’ve really enjoyed all of those releases. Porter is currently getting ready to release his solo album This Red Mountain and I’m very …

The Fox (Freschard, Stanley Brinks, The Burning Hell)

I’ve spent a big part of the past year listening to Freschard, Stanley Brinks & The Burning Hell (Mathias Kom, Ariel Sharratt) and I have become seriously addicted to their music.
