To quote our overlords Don Caballero: ‘June is finally here’. Well, it was. And it brought with a string of wonderful odd-timed releases. We got some mystery prizes from underdogs like Catbamboo and Velodrome, some thunderously heavy dissonance from Northwoods and Snakehound, some continental wildcards like Kyabate, and a shit-hot-tonne more.
