#NewMusicMonday – Alkanes, Broadsea & PaperSailor

I’ve been “off” the birdsite for a little over a year now, and one of my most missed trends from there is #NewMusicMonday. I loved discovering smaller, less well known, bands and musicians. In an effort to “be the change [I] want to see”, I’m going to do my best to share my own choices with the fediverse every week, and see if I can’t find some likeminded folks.

For my first #NewMusicMonday, I’m going to start with something local and close to my heart. Alkanes are a stalwart of the Inverness music scene, gigging in town and across the country for the best part of a decade. They’ve recently announced that they’re bringing things to an end, and have lined up a farewell show.

At that gig they’re going to be supported by Aberdeen’s Broadsea and PaperSailor from Glasgow, so this week’s #NewMusicMonday playlist is going to be each band’s latest release, available from their respective Bandcamp pages.
