[‘Nac Tracks New Music Playlists] July 2020

Posted on August 4, 2020 at 11:59 am | No Comments

In July 2020, lots of new songs were released. I liked some of them, and put them on playlists. These are those:

YouTube, Spotify, or Soundcloud.

If Bandcamp had playlists, I’d share that, too. Hell, I’d probably only share that one.

I suppose I should share the June playlists of new songs I dug before we get too far into July…

YouTube, Spotify, or Soundcloud.
