Single review


Bathe (First Run)

Another track from Fauves, this a seven minute disco banger

Jill Lorean

Eyes on the Bird (JL)

This track is the precursor to JL’s EP, due in early May.

This the second single from Check Masses and is something of a reggae stomper

Mitchell Museum

Freakbeak (Scottish Fiction)

This is the first track from a forthcoming album ‘Skinny Tricks’, due in May, and it is slightly out there
