Album review

HYYTS

Bullet (Blinding Heights)

Co-written and produced by ex-Danny Wilson main man Gary Clark, this is another pop nugget from Central Scotland.



Spielbergs

This Is Not The End (By The Time It Gets Dark)

This is not an album to bask in peacefully and pastorally.



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.



Jimi Hendrix

Electric Ladyland (50th Anniversary Reissue) (Sony)

Years ago I read a magazine article where someone involved with maintaining the Hendrix legacy claimed to have around 300 hours of unreleased material



Neu Gestalt

Controlled Substances (Alex Tronic)

This album is a soundscape rather than an album.



King of the Slums

Artgod Dogs (854878)

Their 90s releases made King of the Slums NME darlings, but they missed out on Britpop – probably just as well…



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?
