On the 24th of September the Scotland based Australian alt-folk project Invisible Dears released the eponymous EP.
Just as the listener is thinking they are settled in to the landscape of luxuriant dayglo comforters the tempo changes to a cèilidh in which to step in gleeful abandon. None more so pronounced than the opening track of the five on the EP, available on bandcamp, If You Can and necessarily why it is my pick of the release.
The Scotland based synthwave project Saint McCabe released the début three track eponymous single yesterday.
Easily flighted darts of electronica wriggle through the room one moment of infectious dance-beat in another a dark shadowy presence, what marks out Saint McCabe a clear space of its own is the impressive and expressive vocal which is able to deliver a lilting cadence of ever changing movement.
The opening track on the single (available on bandcamp) is Now I Clean For Pleasure.

Unhurriedly drifting through the room milkd deliver music which invites the listener to lay back on a soft blanket and allow the music to wind away the stresses of the day as the reverberating echo of guitar, softly brushed vocal and warming keys cosset the ears.
From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) the second – When I Get To You.
The Scottish rock’n’roll quartet, Shambolics, released the single Chasing A Disaster on the 5th.
Transporting the listener from the Eastern coast of Scotland to the South Western coast of the USA in Chasing A Disaster; Shambolics take the listener to a Californian retro-surf ride.
A bleeding guitar slips out of the speakers to the accompaniment of a ferris-wheel percussion as the pulsing bass rotates through the ears while a laid-back vocal shimmers, akin to a brightly sunlight cloud floating high in the sky, leaving the listener pondering of time on the beach on a warm summers day.
There is nothing to do other than skim out to sea, to catch the coasters.
The Scottish experimental-rock quintet The Rotations put out a couple of tracks last week.
Extracting Gold From Fleas has a primordial beat that takes the listener on to a chanting fireside dance with the music seeping its way deep in to the marrow of the bones as it laments of a world turned sour by selfish greed.
