Yippee! Make that noise right now, because the new edition of Nightshift is now out, and it’s like a Summer Special, so packed is it with festival reviews and a whole ton of other good stuff.
This month’s cover feature is an interview with Balloon Ascents. There’s all the news from the local music scene, and reviews of new releases including Audioscope’s Music For A Good Home: Oxford Edition, Lewis Watson, Rainbow Reservoir, Liu Bei, Larry Reddington and Stray Dog with Bare Beats. There are lots of gigs in the comprehensive gig guide, and you can read about what’s already happened with live reviews including Truck festival, Cornbury festival and lots more. There’s an introduction to Lee Riley, a look back at what was going on in Oxford music five, ten and twenty years ago, and the usual two-page Demo reviews section. Demo of the month is from Peerless Pirates, in the Demo Dumper is Senton Bombs.
