The Scottish acoustic-blend duo milkd were introduced earlier this year.

The latest single Come Out (available on bandcamp) is of different countenance than previous material featured as the singular vocal is given more largesse in which to shine in the spotlight and the audience resultingly rests in greater appreciation of a superlative voice, though to denigrate the composition which is reliant on counter melodic guitar to afford the song its enticing ebb and flow would be remiss as sans the dichotomy of pace and chord structures the vocal would be lost in a crowd.
It is for the ability of milkd to identify that every element of their music is of equal important to allow the output to have its impact, even though to many the main focus will be the engrossing vocal, others of us are more fixated on the intricacy of a guitar which slips in and out major and minor chords with no hesitation or fracturing, which I particularly commend.
The Scottish nu-disco outfit Park Planet revealed a new track within the past twenty hours.
Through is a further track to be released which is sign-posted as coming from the tale of the long projected second album, with the working title Rebel, Rebel.
The song has a more electronic and jazz influenced layering than much of their material that has featured over the years, with instrumentation playing a backdrop with a draw that minds of Ashley Reaks though of divergent process in which Park Planet take the listener on a trippy-step around the dance-floor in its just under four and a quarter minutes duration rather than a bleak journey of disquiet.
The Scottish electro-hum outfit Colin’s Godson released the LP Colin’s Godson in Silicon Heaven yesterday.
A dozen track album (available on bandcamp) which minds of space invaders and green computer graphics as the analogue synthetics blip thought the ears inviting the listener to enjoy nostalgia with no guilt complex and I implore you to take the roughly twenty seven minutes to hang out in their company.
The closing track, the most obstreperously minded, necessarily being my pick of the release – Built In Obsolescence.
The Scottish slowave duo milkd released their eponymous EP yesterday.

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.
