Worthwhile and impeccably chosen 50-track mixtape to raise money for Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff.

This behemoth £7 compilation album by over four dozen predominantly Welsh indie artists was painstakingly curated by music journalist Kevin McGrath. It was originally intended to be only fourteen songs, but people kept saying “yes” to Kevin, who himself underwent cancer treatment at Velindre. Indie rock, pop, dreampop, and punk are all represented, new artists and well known ones (The Wedding Present), Welsh Music Prize winners such as Boy Azooga, The Gentle Good, and Adwaith, WMP nominees, as well as a number of artists previously reviewed in our pages, like Simon Love, The Nightingales, Climbing Trees, Burning Ferns, Peter Hall, and Matthew Frederick. Here are just a few more: Sandra’s Wedding, Swimming Pool, Parker Woodland from Texas, Smile from Turin, and Me Against Misery. These artists were generous enough to donate amazing tracks, some in demo form, brand new, or alternate versions of older tracks, with no one phoning in throwaway songs. It says a lot about how appreciated Velindre Cancer Centre’s services are in southeastern Wales, not least by Kevin and his family. For those who may not be familiar with Velindre, it is a “specialist cancer diagnostic and treatment center” on the campus of Velindre University NHS Trust in Cardiff that helps over 1.5 million people. The center is currently in the process of building a new facility. https://v4velindre.bandcamp.com https://velindre.nhs.wales/ redsoapbox.tumblr.com
