short players (Scottish)


Receiver (Lost Map)

Ok, so this caught BM’s attention on the radio this week while sheltering from Beast/Emma

Be Like Pablo

My Kind of Girl (Spinnup)

BM reviewed a track by this band last spring (‘There She Is’), and here we have more

Kathryn Joseph

Tell My Lover (Rock Action)

After an award-winning album a couple of years ago ‘Bones You Have etc’, and a slew of top-notch collaborations


Mr Margins (A Modern Way)

This cracking new single from Solareye (MC with East Coast collective Stanley Odd, here going solo) confirms his place as one of the most talented and creative rap forces


Into The Dreams (Slut) (x)

Rather spooky and gothy, this single by male/female (of Scottish/Serbian original, we are told) duo Permahorn is from a new album


'In Here' / 'Tonight' (Scottish Fiction)

This track trails a new EP by the band (release date: March 2018) entitled ‘All I Am’ and it is another belter

Carla J. Easton

Lights in the Dark (CJE)

BM thinks this is her first release of 2018 but with an artist as prolific as Carla J Easton you never know.


The Animals (Pledge)

Holy cow! In the very week that BM was lamenting about the “indefinite hiatus” of this combo

Modern Studies

Mud and Flame (Fire)

So Scottish/Yorkshire baroque chamber pop combo Modern Studies are back with the lead single for their second long player ‘Welcome Strangers’


Blood In Your Arms (Bloodlines)

By BM’s reckoning this is Bloodlines’ 4th single and a taster for an upcoming EP ‘Prime Cuts’
