Scottish albums

Calamateur

The Old Fox Of '45 (Autoclave)

It’s hard to find superlatives to describe the music of Calamateur.



Sister John

Sister John , (Last Night From Glasgow)

Sister John’s second album is a further indication of this group’s depth of talent.



Pilotcan

Bats Fly Out From Under The Bridge (Evol)

Album opener ‘Page, Take Me To The Lair’ is the sort of track that a lot of other bands would choose to end their first album in 14 years with.



Port Sulphur

Valentinos (Creeping Bent)

I stuck this onto my music player expecting more of the motorik garage pop that makes Port Sulphur’s previous release ‘Paranoic Critical’ the breezy guitar fest that it is.



Reaction

Keep it Weird, Keep it Wired (Tarbeach)

Hailing from Scotland’s post-industrial heartland, Reaction combine ’70s street-punk with gritty Americana on their barnstorming second album.



Ged Grimes

The Bard's Tale IV Barrows Deep Vol II (Original Game Soundtrack) (Heist)

This is a very moving set of songs.



Neu Gestalt

Controlled Substances (Alex Tronic)

This album is a soundscape rather than an album.



Errant Boy

Memory Fractures (labelname)

Errant Boy has been doing his (their?) thing for a while now and has been on BM’s radar



Strike The Colours

Flock (Deadlight)

This the second album by Strike The Colours, although it has been long in the pipeline



The 10.04s

A Common Wealth (10:04)

What is the best thing about ‘A Common Wealth’ and its nine tracks?
