    Latebar’s preferred new albums in 2020

    What a horrible year! What a horrible time for music, musicians and artists in general. So many events cancelled and so many albums delayed and their launches impeded. Luckily, most found a way through, and at Latebar we have been listening carefully all through the year and found a few publications worth promoting. So buckle up, Dorothy!

    Rare Nik Kershaw songs pop up

    Being a dedicated fan of a band or artist often means you are on a ceaseless hunt to collect everything ever published by your idol.

    Melissa Polinar – a perfect grey Sunday soundtrack

    We realized something awful today: Latebar is fiercely dominated by male artists and bands! Wonderful boys, obviously, and we love them all equally! But we need more girls to visit the bar, so on that note, I would like to introduce you to Melissa Polinar. We came across her video “Sing to me” on YouTube, (long story, can’t be bothered accounting for the details), and immediately fell in love. All the videos on her YouTube channel have served as our feel-good soundtrack to a grey Danish Sunday, all morning and way into the afternoon, and they have assisted the cappucinos and candles in keeping us warm. She masters a mix…
