Part 1 of the roundup of compilations that came out in April! Put together with a little help from our followers.
Dive into our archives to hear even more new music!
Self Isolating Compilation (Linear Obsessional)
For musicians this enforced isolation seems especially cruel, as music is, possibly above all, a social activity that explores not just the interaction between musicians, but also between musicians and an audience.
These 85 (Eighty Five!) tracks are an attempted answer to the conundrum, all recorded in isolation at home, and almost all solo (the exceptions being three improvising musicians who share a house, and a father and son duo) throughout the world. There are tracks from UK, USA, France, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Ireland and the Canary Islands. The result is a kaleidoscope of variety – electronics, acoustic improvisations, the odd song and a poem.

Right now, its biggest concern is children whose schools have closed, cutting off a source of healthy, free meals.

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Mutual Aid 2020 (Bokeh Versions)
>>> Bokeh’s Mutual Aid Programme is now open. <<<
100% OF ALL PROCEEDS GO DIRECT TO THE ARTISTS
To either support them or to donate to aid programmes in their local community. We think ** £5 suggested donation ** is fair – the release is pay-what-you-feel as a gesture to you, the listener, who makes these things possible.
** £1,635 raised so far > thanx to the buyers and the listeners **
Mutual Aid 2020 was assembled by the Bokeh Allstars during the first 3 weeks of the Great Lockdown, March / April 2020. Many tracks are from Bokeh releases that fell through the net – we can always rebuild from what we have.
