V/A – Continent Tapes Vol. II (Dr. Skap Records)

Recently I wrote a review about Continent Tapes, a various artist sampler released by Dr. Skap Records. The label managed to gather, assemble, and release a compilation featuring 50 European punk rock bands just before the pandemic spread across the globe.
