Nuggets 355 – Try Hard Fools

Greetings world and welcome to my first post of 2021. We are living in the year after the events portrayed in Bladerunner but it feels more like 28 Days Later. Strange times.

I made this playlist a couple of months ago now and often return to it. The theme is that I am not sure what most of these songs are about. This obscurity is their attraction.

I have included a Bandcamp link where possible so you can connect with the artists and buy their tunes and merch. It’s astonishing how many bands share their music here.
