C Duncan

Health

    C Duncan’s highly anticipated third album sees the Scottish multi-instrumentalist ditch his bedroom studio and work with other producers, engineers and musicians for the first time. Packed with fresh ideas and buzzing with invention, ‘Health’ combines syncopated art-pop piano rhythms with breezy, undulating heartbreak ballads executed with acute precision. As always Duncan has contributed all the artwork surrounding the release, and the colourful and natural aesthetic is reflected in the instrumentation and lyrics.

    Maarja Nuut & Ruum

    Muunduja

      Maarja Nuut is an amazing Estonian violinist / singer. Her new album is a collaboration with fellow Estonian electronic artist, Ruum. Co-produced by Howie B, it's an amazing meeting of electronic and acoustic sources. Maarja already has a strong following from her last (self-released) album in the folk / world music scene. She won the artist prize at Tallinn Music Week in 2016 and has been gigging consistently for the past few years, touring the world, playing Womex and Womad to great response. This new album has the potential to cross her over into a more contemporary classical / electronic worlds. 

      Glasgow two-piece Honeyblood announce the release of their eponymous, debut LP. Recorded at legendary producer Peter Katis' Tarquin Studios (The National, Interpol) in just ten days last November, 'Honeyblood' is an accomplished and delightfully fierce record. "Peter was the perfect match for us," singer/guitarist Stina Tweeddale said of the recording. "He perfectly managed to capture our live performance in the studio." From the urgent guitar and dive-bomb drums of opener 'Fall Forever', the album twists through the gutsy punk of 'Killer Bangs', to reveal discordant anthems like 'Super Rat'. It has pared down alt pop gems in the likes of 'Biro' and 'No Spare Key', but also more country/folk influenced moments like, '(I'd Rather Be) Anywhere But Here', 'Braid Burn Valley' and 'Bud'.

      The band started from humble DIY beginnings, organising their own guerrilla show at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow to commemorate the release of a raucous two-track cassette entitled, 'Thrift Shop'. Honeyblood quickly ingrained themselves into the bustling Glaswegian scene, fast becoming one of its most talked-about names and going on to play festivals everywhere from The Great Escape to their native T In The Park. But with their full-length debut ready to go, big name supports, and world tours locked, 2014 certainly looks to be the year with Honeyblood's name written all over it.

      "There are a tonne of wicked reference points to get excited about – a vague hint of The Vaselines, nice touch of Velvets two-chord simplicity and even bit of Moz (solo, circa 'Viva Hate') chucked in for good measure in the melody" NME

      "Sounding like something from a California dream." The Fader

      “Achieves special merit points, not just for its irresistibly perky two-minute popsmarts but for productively moving the post-White Stripes formula on in a way that many have tried and many more have failed to do.” MOJO
