So, the Great Escape starts on Thursday and features several hundred bands to watch across the three days of festivities. Yesterday, we provided you with this Spotify playlist but obviously the brand new bands who've not released anything yet aren't up on Spotify, so instead, we bring you a mixtape, using Soundcloud.
I'd love to say we have listened to absolutely every single band on the bill but I'd be lying, we only managed about 60% before wishing someone would destroy MySpace. However, we spend our lives lost in music and the following playlist features acts we know are worth your time (many of whom you'll find playing the DiS stage) and a couple we've only just stumbled across that we really look forward to seeing for the first time.
Oh and Rolo Tomassi, who headline our stage at Revenge on Friday, have very kindly given us a track from their forthcoming album Cosmology - you heard it here first, etc...
