A very happy new year to you all and welcome to the very first round of Noteworthy Nods for 2024; that time of the week when we reveal our top picks of the latest releases that we have been blasting on our office speakers.
In case you missed it, we finished off last year’s Nods season with a best of the year playlist which you can check out over here. And now, despite the year only just having started, we have come across plenty of quality tunes for today’s playlist which features new sounds from the likes of Kula Shaker, Cast, The Manatees, and the first slice of what’s in store from Liam Gallagher and John Squire‘s collaboration.
We hope you enjoy this week’s essential playlist as much as we do and, as always, please drop us a tweet to let us (and more importantly, the musicians) know which tracks you’ve bookmarked for future repeat playback.
Aside from the aforementioned track recommendations, our Noteworthy section includes weekly videocast interviews featuring musical talent we hope are either already or, about to become your new favorite artists. You can watch/rewatch all previous episodes via the video playlist below featuring the likes of Red Rum Club, Shed Seven, Turin Brakes, Embrace, The Sherlocks, The Slow Readers Club, Stanleys, The K’s, The Native, The Clause, and many more.
