A collection of largely acoustic tracks from Czech-born, Huddersfield-based singer songwriter Monika Zlamalova lands on the desk.

Within are eight utterly charming tracks under the title Only Pebbles. Calling in favours from Huddersfield’s growing army of musicians to flesh the whole thing out, it’s perfectly suited to drawn-out early summer days.
Of the records, Zlamalova says “There is a parallel between the pebbles and the songs, both being something that is ‘picked up’ and gathered over a long time, sometimes years, and kept as a little treasure. Both being a reminder of something special, holding a memory, a place or a feeling that is important. Come and visit places where time gets washed away, where reality is blurred with fantasy and imagination.”

Get Only Pebbles here.
