The Scottish dream-wave outfit L-space released the single Space Junk on the 17th.
The song is cleverly named and written as the dreamy synths are interspersed with distorted interference giving Space Junk a grainy perspective, that reflects both of nature of outer-space with the myriad of comets and showers of rock fragments, as well within the earths pull the many abandoned satellites drifting around earth yet, lyrically described, through the seeming clutter there is an unfathomable beauty and spaciousness that lays therein with the winding guitar calmly unravelling itself through the just over four minutes track evolving from an almost unheard addendum to a clear focus of energy.
Space Junk – L-Space is available on iTunes.*

Ace Elementary is a Scottish alt-rock quartet.
Relatively newly out of the blocks, given the handful of available tracks to hear Ace Elementary are a quartet to get to know before having to queue to get to see, as they are already establishing a solid live performance schedule.
Do The Mutant (available on bandcamp) is one of a couple of tracks that came out recently, which is a fair representation of their sound combining a buzzy garage guitar with the second six stringer levelling out the sound with melodic inter-play as the cleanly hit skins bounce around the room and a throbbing bass rolls through the bone structure all rolled out by delayed and echoey vocal.

The Scottish alt-rock trio Mitchell Museum release the LP Everett Trap on the 26th.
Making a welcome return after a six year gap.
Delivering complex structures through instrumentation and synth Mitchell Museum provide the listener with multi-layered compositions in which to loose sense of time – an album well worth grabbing hold of once it becomes available whilst hoping that it will be prior 2023 that they resurface.
My selection from the eleven track LP (available on bandcamp) is the antepenultimate Knifeback.

The Scottish alt-rock quartet The Imagineers release the LP Utopian Dreams on the 2nd of May.
The Imagineers – Utopian Dreams – artwork
With something of a cinematographic atmosphere Californians Drive All Day (In The Sunshine), the tenth of the bakers dozen tracks on the album oozes a warmth as the unhurried synthetics drift like balmy summer rays through the listeners ears. Although only lasting for less than two and a half minutes, the composition still, is able, to paint a generous soundscape.
Utopian Dreams [Explicit] is available on Amazon.

The Scottish nu-disco trio Park Planet are still working towards the release of the LP Rebel Rebel.
Given the history of my relationship with Park Planet since 2012, I can safely say they keep a diary as poorly as I. The most recent email to which I responded, just a few moments ago was one from April 2015. But none of that matters as creating music is what they are good at doing and most recently to surface was the track We Can’t Stop You.
In theory the LP Rebel Rebel will be released this year, however even they are doubtful of this idea and although this is stated as the second track track to be revealed from the LP, which may well have changed its name by the time of its arrival, do bear in mind this is in principal the third track from the album I have featured that reference to it – with the first indication of the new LP and the track – Dropping It – having been introduced back in 2015. Which makes their conundrums all the more a pleasure.
My advice however is to always enjoy new tracks as they arise, as they are always worth holding close the the chest.
To rewrite that introductory paragraph again – We Can’t Stop You – which may on may not be an on LP, that may not ever be released, that may or may not end up being called Rebel Rebel. Turn down all other noises and immerse yourself in the just over three and a half minutes of hip snaking music.
