The Scottish hip-hop creator Empress xX released the EP Turning Tables earlier in the month.

Scorching through the speakers is a skillfully delivered wry and scornful commentary of societal malaise as Empress xX delivers tracks that finds the listener smiling while infected by the controlled fulmination.
From the five track release (available on bandcamp) my pick of the release is the penultimate – Quiet Contemplation.
Matthew Collings is a Scottish experimental-ambience creator.
Sometimes politically charged, always dark, Matthew Collings delivers music crafted predominately, though not exclusively, by manipulating physical vibrations of the speakers created by both organic and inorganic material.
The visual elements of the works are as key as the aural and the video to accompany In The Undertow was created by Ian Waugh.
