This is a very solid reason. You are forgiven. :lol:

heppolo, I feel so guilty about you :oops:. Really, I feel like a bastard who left a companion :(. But you know, there's one big problem in all this. When I was active on the UKMix in 2014 - 2015, I lost about 6 months in albums listening. And I still can't catch them up. Currently I'm listening to the albums that were released in Summer '17. They are "new releases" for me :lol:. Back to active life on the UKMix would mean the further backwardness. :(

Usually I'm listening to the new albums at work, but there's too noisy there (students are noisy all over the world :lol: ), so I have to relisten at home using headphones. It's impossible to keep up with everything having just 3-4 hours for a hobby. :(

Each of these songs have video or audio link. The reason why did I post not all the links is my health. I have caught cold on Friday and felt ill for a week. Just had no strength to complete the list. Didn't listen to new music until yesterday, so my new list is not full.

Warsaw Pact - Day By Day

Push Button Press - 5˚C

Hunna - Flickin' Your Hair

Swimsuit Issue - Look Now

Leeches - All My Fun

Dig Exotic - Ghost

Pink Tea - Smoko

This is amazing!

Gengahr - Before Sunrise

Velvet Hands - Only Blame Myself

Sextile feat. Sienna - Current Affair

Moaning - Artificial

Preoccupations - Espionage

Editors - Magazine

Bengal Lancers - Eclipse

EELS - The Deconstruction Another great track

Decemberists - Severed

No Age - Send Me

Hot Snakes - Six Wave Hold-Down

Radkey - Not Smart

Soft Moon - Choke

Lucy Dacus - Addictions

Amen Dunes - Miki Dora

Bee Bee Sea - This Dog Is The King Of Losers

Hitlist Youth - Is This Disco? Remember "House Of Jealous Lovers"? :wink:

Salad Boys - Psych Slasher

BTW guys, thanks for those 19 pts, didn't expect to be so high on the UKMIX Favourite Members chart. You both are high on my list too. :)

Push Button Press - 5˚C - okay-ish, but not really memorable
Hunna - Flickin' Your Hair - good production, nice vibes
Swimsuit Issue - Look Now - a bit retro
Leeches - All My Fun - nice guitar, not too impressed by the vocals
Dig Exotic - Ghost - delicious
Lea Porcelain - Gotta Run - well, this is quality

Gengahr - Before Sunrise - seems MOR at first, gets psychedelic fast
Velvet Hands - Only Blame Myself - post-punkish drumming is distinctive
Sextile feat. Sienna - Current Affair - a little bit underwhelming
Bengal Lancers - Eclipse - awesome vocal effort in this well-written tune
EELS - The Deconstruction - gets lukewarm reception from me
Decemberists - Severed - this one also popped up in my youtube recommendations, not bad

I've charted those five songs, which obviously is a seal of approval:
Moaning - Artificial
Preoccupations - Espionage
No Age - Send Me
Editors - Magazine
Amen Dunes - Miki Dora

The Damned - Standing On The Edge Of Tomorrow - great to see them around
Kevin Morby & Waxahatchee - Farewell Transmission - I was a bit amused when I've heard that country guitar tweak in the middle of the song
Franz Ferdinand - Lazy Boy - neither catchy nor something new, I guess it's still nice
Dirty Sidewalks - Rock And Roll (Save My Soul) - old school indie rock
Avid Dancer - Little Bird - I've enjoyed that psychedelia
Jack White - Corporation - not really a fan of this
Lily Allen feat. Giggs - Trigger Bang - I guess it might have been better
Monster Magnet - Mindfacker - nice throwback-ish vibe
Guards - Destroyer - retro-pop done good
Bonnevilles - Dirty Photographs - sounds demo-ish
Sons - Rise - just lovely
Unknown Mortal Orchestra - American Guilt - didn't hit me as they used to do, but anyway sounds cool
