Mt. Doubt – ‘Conduits’ [Scottish Fiction]

To be assumed to be an “indie” guitar band can often limit an act – not for Mt. Doubtthough, they aren’t afraid to use their highly polished pop sensibility while avoiding the garage style recording quality that so often defines the genre. Featuring on 2017 EP, Moon Landings, this fresh, bright and affecting single showsContinue reading “Mt. Doubt – ‘Conduits’ [Scottish Fiction]”

Track of 2017 (30-21)

30. Siobhan Wilson – ‘Whatever Helps’ [Song, by Toad] Immediately, ‘Whatever Helps’ shows off a more darker tone than Siobhan Wilson’s earlier, more twee-sounding material; the delicately soft vocal remain, but it is now layered, and more ominous sounding. An ode to fighting against a lost love, and the depression that comes with it, theContinue reading “Track of 2017 (30-21)”

EPs of 2017 (20-11)

Albums 30-21 – 20-11 – 10-1 EPs 30-21 – 20-11 – 10-1 20. GURL+++ – Nerv00se Nerv00se is the latest peek into the mind of Aberdeen based producer GURL+++, and it’s an interesting piece. The genre defying release utilises heavily cut up vocals, elements of hip-hop, dance and house, with more ambient twist of sleepy keyboard and clunky bass. Nerv00se endsContinue reading “EPs of 2017 (20-11)”

Mt. Doubt – ‘Tourists’ [Scottish Fiction]

Following the positive response to Mt. Doubt’s critically acclaimed albums In Awe of Nothing and My Past is a Quiet Beast, March saw the release of new single ‘Tourists’. It’s a story about Leo Bargery’s fear of flying and the tone is tongue and cheek, while the melody is a smooth, free-flowing mantra. The compositionContinue reading “Mt. Doubt – ‘Tourists’ [Scottish Fiction]”

Mt. Doubt – The Loneliness of the TV Watchers [Scottish Fiction]

Mt. Doubt started out as chief songwriter Leo Bargery’s solo project, but after two full length releases the Edinburgh-based sextet have delivered their most collaborative work to date. Though you might not guess from its curmudgeonly title, this EP is the first of Mt. Doubt’s work that actually feels like a group effort and thisContinue reading “Mt. Doubt – The Loneliness of the TV Watchers [Scottish Fiction]”

Mt. Doubt – ‘Thirst’ [Scottish Fiction]

‘Thirst’ is the third single from Edinburgh-based Mt. Doubt’s second album, In Awe of Nothing, and its mellow-yet-captivating sound makes it an addictive listen. It’s atmospheric and full of excellent lyrics, two things we’ve come to expect from Mt. Doubt which they always do so well. There’s a slightly haunting feel to the track, especiallyContinue reading “Mt. Doubt – ‘Thirst’ [Scottish Fiction]”

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”

Mt. Doubt at Henry’s Cellar Bar, 2/9/16

Henry’s Cellar Bar is a fitting nook for Mt. Doubt’s single launch. Like a beat generation bar, the stage is at floor level and the ceiling hangs just an inch above frontman Leo Bargery’s brown curls. Tonight the air is stuffy with smug smiles of a crowd that predict a show this good will neverContinue reading “Mt. Doubt at Henry’s Cellar Bar, 2/9/16”
