SATURDAY'S SCOTTISH SINGLE (Part 27)
Up until now, the singles have been done in alphabetical order. But for one week only it's changing.
Today's Scottish single is one that isn't out yet.....but it will be in 48 hours time on Monday 16 April. It's the latest offering from one of the best bands I've seen this year and I think these two songs are among the best and most exciting bits of music I've heard in ages.
The name of the band is Father Sculptor. It's their debut single and as of Monday it will be available as a free download...of a far higher quality than I'm making available today:-
mp3 : Father Sculptor - Ember
mp3 : Father Sculptor - Blue
More details available on the bandcamp page here and over at the website here.
I said when I heard Ember played live that it reminded me of Sire-era James. And now that I've played it a few times these past few days since it dropped into my inbox I'm even more firmly of that view. I also hear a bit of one of Geneva who I reckon are one of the great long-lost and underrated Scottish bands of the 90s. Ember is a stunningly good piece of music.
Blue is excellent of indie-pop of the kind I'd like to think people come back and visit TVV to pick up and listen to. It is very 80s in a 21st Century sort of way. Tell me you agree........and then nip over as of Monday and get the better-quality download.
AND THANKS TO MY WEE BROTHER IN FLORIDA FOR ALERTING ME TO THE FACT I HADN'T LOADED UP THE SONGS......DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT'S SORTED NOW.
