CJAM Singles Club Top 3! [November 2020]

It’s somehow December 1st, which means it’s time to announce the top tracks played from last months singles club – the last singles club of 2020! Three solid tracks: one recently uncovered from ‘the vault’, one Windsor punk classic remastered, and one previously unreleased track released in solidarity with BLM

#1. The Hypnotics – Soul at Seven [Windsor]

…recorded in 2011 during studio sessions for their first album (Static Fuzz Radio), but never released… until now!

#2. The Spys – Underground [Windsor]

…a newly remastered track from the bands 1980 7″, Underground / Machine Shop. I can not find this remaster anywhere online (it’s supposed to be going up on your favorite streaming services sometime soon), so it may have been a CJAM exclusive?! In lieu of the remastered version, here is a video from the bands Facebook of the original vinyl spinning.

#3. Torus Eyes – Nu Love [Detroit]

…returning to singles club a second month in a row with another previously unreleased track released in solidarity with ongoing Black Lives Matters protests, with all proceeds going to the Detroit Justice Center

.

This singles club will be the last singles club until February 2021. Keep an eye out for calls for submissions in the new year!
