The AT Blog //
Our blog is curated by the AT team, with a select group of friends and music aficionados also contributing content. Driven by the same passions as the label, we aim to give some much-deserved publicity and promotion to music and artists that can otherwise go uncovered and indeed, undiscovered by the more mainstream, trend driven press.
For us, the blog is a platform to showcase and celebrate the creativity and vision of musicians, artists and bands that we love, whilst giving us another opportunity to support new or emerging bands and artists as much as possible.
We hope you find something you like.

It’s not uncommon for people to draw up playlists for background music or more as they work, rest or play. Musicians are no different, and Damion Jurrens of The Cowls recently spoke to us about some of the music that inspired and accompanied on the creative journey that led to the Certain Calculations album, just put out by our good selves. We asked him to come up with a short but perfectly formed Spotify playlist for us to share with you. We like it and we think you will too, but that’s enough from me, now let’s hear from the man himself.
