Vasquez – ‘Thumbmusic’

I always feel this wave of relief when Vasquez are making new music. It’s Scottish bands like this that get me most excited. They are a unique entity and ‘Thumbmusic’  cements them as one of the most dynamic bands of my current listening. The controlled intensity yet complexity of ‘Thumbmusic’ shows stunning experimentation, it radiates…

Song of the Day is courtesy of Glasgow’s Ubre Blanca. ‘Red Skies’ is taken from Ubre Blanca’s forthcoming Terminal Island 12″.

With their idiosyncrasies, Medals have filled a gaping hole with their fun-filled regressive pop edge. This is catchy, grand and even though it looks…

VIDEO: Einar Stray Orchestra – ‘Politricks’

Einar Stray Orchestra’s video for single ‘Politricks’ combines wistful melodic dreamscapes and Gothic imagery as the band convert the youth of their town to the cult of Einar! It’s a mesmerising juxtaposing between the sweet sounds and the dark scenes – stunning. For more information, visit Einar Stray Orchestra’s official website.

Finn LeMarinel – ‘Known Voices’

I have often cited Scottish musicians such as Adam Stafford being some of our most underrated and under-publicised.

I find myself sitting, watching and listening these artists and sometimes questioning loudly ‘can everyone hear and feel…
