Another month, another new entirely free e.p. of great Scottish music for your listening pleasure from us and Scottish Fiction. This month we've got a superb mix of tracks for you which we know you're going to love. As ever, thanks to the artists for donating their tracks and thanks to you for listening. Remember to go and check out the bands' Facebook and Twitter pages once you've grabbed your free download from here:
This month's tracks are:
AQUAFAUX - SEE THE RAIN
Edinburgh's Aquafaux produce driving synthpop and See The Rain from their recent e.p. Spellbound is a prime example of that. Combining the band's trademark electronics with a Garbage like chorus, See The Rain is a wonderful example of electropop.
UBRE BLANCA - TAXED
Every now and again there comes along music that your brain can't quite immediately process. Ubre Blanca are a band like that - with experimental electronica verging on out-of-this-world prog. Taxed is a track from their 2013 release Polygon Mountain and is an excellent introduction to the band.
SHONA BROWN - ALL I HAVE (ORIGINAL MIX)
Shona Brown's ambitious "10 in 10" project, which has seen her release a single a month since November 2014, has been one of the most interesting and enjoyable events in Scottish music this year. All I Have perfectly demonstrates all her skills, with looped electronics and flute combining to quite wonderful effect
BUNNY & THE INVALID SINGERS - ASK THE MAN INSIDE YOUR HEAD
Edinburgh based musician/artist Bunny has just released his second album The Invalid Singers and this track is one of the standouts on what is a superb album
DEC. '91 - WHEN YOU COME
Playing under the pseudonym of Dec. '91, Craig Ferries uses the simples of ingredients - a guitar and his voice - to craft encapsulating stories of melancholia. He's an artist who has been on our radar for a while, with a series of home releases and more recently hooking up with Gold Mold Records for the album Quebec. The track featured here is a brand new one.
WENDELL BORTON - ADJUSTING
Naming your band after an obscure character from The Simpsons is always a winner in our book. Luckily, Aberdeen's Wendell Borton have the music to back it up. Raw, loud and slightly slacker alt-rock - what's not to love?
