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)”

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)”

Electric Fields, Day 1, 1/9/17

Another year and another weekend at Electric Fields probably the best outdoor festival in Scotland just now and we definitely have the weather for it; I have the privilege of my own bed each night so don’t witness the late nights and early mornings, but for all the time the main arena is open notContinue reading “Electric Fields, Day 1, 1/9/17”

Ones to Watch: Electric Fields 2017

Electric Fields was one of the highlights of last year’s festival season, a bargain price and some stellar acts combined with a fully fledged but also kid friendly festival atmosphere to make it a festival that won’t have many people saying no to. This year they look to capitalise on the absense of T inContinue reading “Ones to Watch: Electric Fields 2017”

Hot on the heels of single ‘Lost Maps’ comes the second solo album from Helen Marnie of the Ladytron parish – and a very fine effort it is too. The album follows in the footsteps of ‘Lost Maps’ by sounding personal and intimate but is also pretty expansive: the sweeping synth strings on ‘Little Knives’Continue reading “Marnie – Strange Words And Weird Wars [Disco Pinata]”

Stag & Dagger, 30/4/17

Perhaps the most highly anticipated annual event on Glasgow’s musical calendar, Stag & Dagger heralds in the start of the festival season and once again floods Sauchiehall Street’s venues with an array of excellent talent. Over the years, the festival has put on up-and-coming acts in intimate venues before they have exploded, with the likesContinue reading “Stag & Dagger, 30/4/17”

Marnie – ‘Lost Maps’ [Disco Pinata]

If ever a record managed to be exactly on point, tick all the correct boxes and yet still be utterly thrilling, ‘Lost Maps’ by Marnie is it; it’s an absolute belter. A growling, electronic, thuggishly sleek beast of a tune by the frontwoman of Ladytron, it reminds in some ways of the Scarlett Johansson effortContinue reading “Marnie – ‘Lost Maps’ [Disco Pinata]”
