Along with a myriad of equally fine and independent music/cultural blogs, the Monolith Cocktail is now hosting Universal Horse’s burgeoning ‘Alternative Top Forty’. Expect to see our very own – with any luck – choices each month, as the project gains momentum.


Alternative-top-40 - Monolith Cocktail


The Alternative Top 40 is a monthly music chart shared across multiple music blogs, and a great way of discovering music you might not have heard elsewhere. You can contribute to the #AltTop40 by simply naming your favourite tracks of the moment – for full details of how to nominate music, see the latest post about the chart at Universal Horse.
