PLAYLIST REVUE/Dominic Valvona/Matt Oliver/Brain ‘Bordello’ Shea

Join us for the most eclectic of musical journeys as the Monolith Cocktail compiles another monthly playlist of new release and recent reissues we’ve featured on the site and tracks we’ve not had time to write about but have been on the radar – some of which have literally just been released today. There’s a glorious full-on sixteen-minute Miles Davis peregrination, taken from the lost Septet live performance of 1971, the latest experimental agit lesson from Beans, dreamwave enchantment from Zoe Polanski, good times disarming profound poetics from Bob Dylan and razor sharp electro pop spite from Violent Vickie.

Hi, my name is Dominic Valvona and I’m the Founder of the music/culture blog For the last ten years I’ve featured and supported music, musicians and labels we love across genres from around the world that we think you’ll want to know about. No content on the site is paid for or sponsored and we only feature artists we have genuine respect for /love. If you enjoy our reviews (and we often write long, thoughtful ones), found a new artist you admire or if we have featured you or artists you represent and would like to buy us a coffee at to say cheers for spreading the word, then that would be much appreciated.
