I have to apologise to those of you that are regular perusers of We Close Tonight for the unreliable, and essentially invisible, nature of posts across the last few weeks. The only excuse I can offer up is that I work two jobs, study on a part-time course and have been covering the election (among other things) so there are plenty of unread emails and wonderful tunes that deserve coverage that haven’t had any yet.
However, Rormix are providing you with five whole tracks to help you get through the next couple of days of potential radio silence from me as their marvellous app ushers in five more top tunes that you NEED to get into your ears. Go on, download the app – but make sure you listen to all these tracks first, they’ll whet your appetite.
