The Scottish melancholic-rock quartet Motion released their eponymous EP on the 9th.
The air fills with a palpable sense of sadness as the music floats through the air on extended glittering delayed guitar notes with a double time percussion giving the feeling of two platelets moving at different speeds revolving around each other, which gives the songs their shadowy texture, through which bass fades in and out of earshot while a sorrowful echoing vocal rounds out the immersive sounds created by Motion.
On the 7th the Scottish retro-wave creator Kung Fu Jesus released the LP The Kantele Tapes.

Immediately on hitting play the listener is wound back to the late ’80s – though not in the least sorry for it – as the blends of instrumentation, electronica and floating vocal surface in to the room to wrap the listener in billowing down filled blankets.
The Scottish indie-rock quartet Lost In Stereo are due to release their début EP Famous First Words on the 29th of September.
Lost In Stereo
Other than hit play – there is nothing else Lost In Stereo ask the listener to undertake as they look after the rest in the just under three and a quarter minutes of Tear Out The Pages – from the forthcoming EP – that dances around the room like a steel ball spinning off rubber stretchers on a pinball table scurrying over flashing buttons and racking up points. Though if one is desirous – a double flick on the flipper buttons makes for a welcome repeat.
The Scottish dystopian-electronica duo Boobs of DOOM release the LP eXXpre$$ion. on the 11th of August.
Boobs of DOOM
The glitchy distortions of their compositions give the music a foreboding vision of the future through which a deep bass-line grinds as though destroying everything in its path while sparking arcs of electronics shatter leaving a sense of wanton destruction and industrial wasteland in their trail.
From the forthcoming album (available on bandcamp) the antepenultimate of the nine – tHE wOLF yOU fEED (diarchy).
Ghost Dance Collective is a psychedelic rock quartet from Scotland.
Ghost Dance Collective
Earlier this month they released their début EP Haunted, which is available on bandcamp, a roughly quarter of an hour release that fills the listener with thoughts of the summer of love with the drifting combinations of guitar and synth and hazy vocal that takes the edge off the day leaving the mind in a free-flowing state of relaxation from which it is no hurry to escape.
