Bristol Radio: Follow new releases from local artists with our Spotify playlistPosted on: 01 May 2020
Find the very best music coming out of Bristol right now on our dedicated Spotify playlist.
As the Coronavirus lockdown wears on, it's getting harder and harder to keep life interesting within the confines of our own homes.
You've rinsed your favourite shows on Netflix, burned through that Nigella cookbook and vowed never to play another game of Monopoly after what happened last time.
There is one way you can inject a bit of variety into day to day life at home, though, and that's through Bristol Radio - our carefully-curated Spotify playlist dedicated to the very best new music coming out of Bristol right now.
We've just added 12 new tracks to take Bristol Radio up to the 100-song mark, including stellar additions from the likes of Hodge, Chikaya and Tamu Massif.
You'll also find Kinlaw's ethereal new remix of 'I Fold You' from Elder Island's 2019 album, The Omnitone Collection, and a special live version of Ishmael Ensemble's 'The Chapel', recorded live at Maida Vale Studios as part of Gilles Peterson Presents: MV4.
Elsewhere on Bristol Radio, expect huge tracks from IDLES, Elder Island and Cousin Kula, soulful acoustics courtesy of Maya Law, Harvey Causon and Katy J Pearson, and no-nonsense releases from Heavy Lungs, Leeches and Football FC.
Electronic music fans can also find innovative underground sounds from some of Bristol's best-loved DJs and producers, including Shanti Celeste, Batu, and Eats Everything.
If you're on the hunt for some new music, tune in to Bristol Radio and get to know some of the Westcountry's most exciting contemporary artists.
Our Spotify playlist is updated monthly. If you or someone you know has got new music on the way, get in touch - we want to hear it!
