Cruel Sports

By • Dec 19th, 2011 • Category: demonstration

A new Scottish band, eh? So, that’ll it be – Biffy or folky?



Martyn McKenzie

Sometimes just a wee bit of drumming is enough to make your bog-standard acoustic act stand out.



Georgia Kate

By • Jul 14th, 2011 • Category: demonstration

Georgia is a 16-year-old acoustic singer-songwriter from the borders, and her youth shows in this recording.



Alan Hercher

A four track EP from this Inverness-born singer-songwriter, opening track ‘Time’ is out of place in the current Scottish folky scene



Tuskervaridi

By • Jul 14th, 2011 • Category: demonstration

One, CD, 5 tracks, from this Stirling act… ‘Space’ builds slowly and deliberately with hints of Smalltown Boredom or slowcore acts like Karate.



Enter Empyrean

By • Jul 13th, 2011 • Category: short players, short players (Scottish)

This is nicely laid-back sleepy music, and despite the ‘band’ name, probably courtesy of singer-songwriter – at least on the evidence of ‘Fading Fuse’.



Bare Bones

Familiar? Yes, seems that there are two bands of this name on the go, both Scottish. What are the chances, eh?



The Spook School

By • Jul 13th, 2011 • Category: short players, short players (Scottish)

Another Edinburgh band, but rather than being part of the current folky crop, this lot are entrenched in the C86 sounds



Last Man Frees All

By • Jul 13th, 2011 • Category: long players, Scottish albums

Don’t think this is a demo as such, more a complete album which I guess the guys had grand plans to release, but have eventually self-released when Mr EMI didn’t get back to them.



Three Long Words

A teen band who recorded this last year, at Studio 24, and that info (apart from the date) may tell you everything you need to know.
