As list season continues, I'd like to take a look at some of the other releases from this year worthy of your attention. Below are some of the best Compilations, Splits and Live Albums and other curiosities that I've really enjoyed.
2017 saw the emergence/rise of the boutique cassette label, I've included some of those releases too and i expect we'll see more in 2018.
Ive included the players to some label samplers at the end of the post, so theres plenty of new bands to discover. All title links are clickable and will take you to the artists pages; as always, if you like what you hear then please support the artists and labels by purchasing their music.
There's some killer stuff here, Enjoy !
