Album review

Randolph’s Leap

Howling at the Sun (bandcamp download)

Adam Ross has been very productive during lockdown



Jill Lorean

Not Your First (self-released)

Adoptive Scot Jill Lorean has certainly been in and about the Scottish music scene for a good few years



Monica

Celebration (Mink)

This is just some lovely music – not sure what genre it fits into



Mogwai

ZeroZeroZero (BandCamp / Rock Action)

Mogwai were always destined to do soundtracks and do them well.



God’s Wonderful Railway

Broadcast From Test Room A (Santa Mira)

The prospect of more God’s Wonderful Railway material, especially at this dark hour



Various Artists

The Isolation Sessions (Last Night From Glasgow)

There are a lot of really shit things about current times, obviously – but it has led to some highs – and this is definitely one!



Anna Calvi

Hunted (Domino)

Since the release of her debut, self-titled album in 2011, singer, songwriter and musician Anna Calvi has not shied away from much merited success.



Marlin’s Dreaming

Quotidian (MD)

First track, ‘Cabbage Tree’, is a dead ringer for Depeche Mode’s ‘Policy Of Truth’



Fire In The Radio

Monuments (Wednesday)

There is nothing like a bit of true and direct music for when you are in lockdown.



The Fast Camels

Full of Strange (download)

This is 12 tracks of blissed out guitar pop, with the lead single ‘Blissful Serenity’ just the start
