Tracks of 2017 (10-1)

10. TeenCanteen – ‘Millions’ [Last Night From Glasgow] ‘Millions’, and the Sirens EP that contained it, was an unexpected deep and emotional turn from TeenCanteen, but this track is quite possibly their strongest work to date. This very personal number cover reflects on singer Carla J Easton’s feelings on her dad’s passing some time after theContinue reading “Tracks of 2017 (10-1)”

Albums of 2017 (10-1)

Albums 30-21 – 20-11 – 10-1 EPs 30-21 – 20-11 – 10-1 10. Bdy_Prts – Fly Invisible Hero [Aggrocat] We would say that Fly Invisible Hero is a record that’s seldom seem in this day and age, but we’ve place another album slightly further up the list that BDY_PRTS will no doubt have taken influence from, what we can sayContinue reading “Albums of 2017 (10-1)”

Breakfast Muff – Eurgh! [Amour Foo]

Lyrically punk, a bit derisive, yet never far from a cheekily decisive hook. Breakfast Muff is that chaotic clatter in the corner, the clutter of noise you cannot quite ignore no matter how many times you slam the window shut. Eurgh! is a bit like that conversation you had in the smoking area of aContinue reading “Breakfast Muff – Eurgh! [Amour Foo]”

Doune the Rabbit Hole, Day 2, 19/8/17

Day two of Doune I start off early and surprising chirper, after a cup of Yogi chai from the Tchai Ovna tent and a haggis roll sort be right out. So, well prepared I make the journey down the treacherous path down to the Thunderdome stage in plenty of time to catch an otherworldly setContinue reading “Doune the Rabbit Hole, Day 2, 19/8/17”

Preview: Doune The Rabbit Hole (Saturday)

With Doune the Rabbit Hole coming up next weekend we thought we’d give you a run down of some of the acts to check out, problem was we felt the line up so strong that we couldn’t limit it down to a certain number, here’s a wee day by day effort to keep you occupied:Continue reading “Preview: Doune The Rabbit Hole (Saturday)”

Breakfast MUFF – ‘Babyboomers/R U A Feminist’ [Armour Foo]

It is a pet peeve of mine when music implores you to act in a certain way when musicians force ideologies down your throat – such as when Linkin Park started crying about people pouring olive oil down the sink or when Dead Prez started promoting imploring people to eat their vegetables. I am happyContinue reading “Breakfast MUFF – ‘Babyboomers/R U A Feminist’ [Armour Foo]”

Otoboke Beaver, Say Sue Me, Breakfast MUFF at CCA, 3/5/17

Allegedly this is the only time tonight’s headliners get to tour, it being Golden Week, Japan’s longest national holiday, but Otoboke Beaver are the band that will set aside these rules, these guys are destined to play much further than Japan and not just on the holiday’s from their day jobs. Glasgow’s Breakfast MUFF openContinue reading “Otoboke Beaver, Say Sue Me, Breakfast MUFF at CCA, 3/5/17”

FUZZKILL presents Shredd (single launch), Fruit Tones (EP launch), Breakfast MUFF, Savage Mansion at The Old Hairdressers, 8/4/17

Savage Mansion break into a dreamy and familiar seeming song, reeking of various decades past but brought up to speed with their lively, contemporary approach; consistent but ever-changing, familiar but novel. This dichotomy between new and old is mirrored by nothing better than the facial hair from left to right. Mutton chopped funky man JamieContinue reading “FUZZKILL presents Shredd (single launch), Fruit Tones (EP launch), Breakfast MUFF, Savage Mansion at The Old Hairdressers, 8/4/17”

The Hotelier, Crying, Breakfast MUFF at Stereo, 21/1/17

Breakfast MUFF get me excited quickly though with their range of catchy songs, they garner popularity and enthusiasm without sacrificing lyrical or musical integrity. Each of the three members has a microphone and whilst in the process of admiring the drummer’s classy and elegant voice and style on the kit, she emerges from behind theContinue reading “The Hotelier, Crying, Breakfast MUFF at Stereo, 21/1/17”

Tenement Trail, 8/10/16

My Tenement Trail starts in the Sleazy’s basement, following a visit to Love Music for a caringly delivered in-store from Edinburgh’s booming charmer Mt. Doubt, who airs a few new tracks which sound as cosy as any of his previous material despite singer Leo Bargery forgetting the words of one of said songs. Still, hisContinue reading “Tenement Trail, 8/10/16”
