Release of the day: Advent Calendar 2020 by Stamp The Wax

Musical gifts by the British magazine


In the irregular column "Release of the day" we will talk about the music that impressed us and which we would like to share with you.

The first such example is the annual compilation from the British magazine Stamp The Wax, which in the best Advent traditions publishes one track every day in December before Christmas. Styles are very different: from ambient and electronic music to soul and dream-pop, but the distinguishing feature of these compilations is the very perfect taste of the curators. This year the gifts were shared by Bawrut, Scrimshire, Autarkic, Stones Taro, Otic, Nuri and others. We advise all those who want to enrich their diverse musical taste with new names.


This year, the proceeds from the compilation will go to two charities: London-based organisation You Make It, which helps young women realize themselves, and Nigeria-based initiative Project Protect, which provides financial, medical and legal assistance to EndSars protesters who, as in Belarus, are fighting against political despotism.
