“Indie country music to dance to in Brooklyn, NY.” — Andi Rae Healy
funkyratchet wrote about GHOST TRAIN SOUNDTRACK: “All-over-the-place country and Americana comp with some unsuspected gems.”
“The concept behind this collection is rooted in a song from Mr Magpie, a band that feature on this compilation. They have a song called, ‘Ghost Trains of Old England’. Confusingly enough, we chose to feature a different track from Mr Magpie but we found the concept of abandoned trains quite fascinating. Think of all the miles they have travelled, all the stories they could tell and all the songs that have been played or sung on them. So many memories and so much history there. Perhaps this will be the soundtrack to someone’s train journey… who knows!”
“Aldora Britain Records is an e-zine and record label that promotes the music and work of authentic independent or underground artists from all around the world. Originally established in 2013, they revamped themselves in 2018 with a brand-new approach. Their first weekly compilation, aptly titled THE SECOND COMING, was released in late 2019. They now also release original singles, EPs and charity projects.”
