April Spotify playlist
Opening the collection in the much-anticipated debut offering from one of the most exciting emerging acts. Vlure should be a name on everybody’s lips come September when they are set at appear at the rescheduled TRNSMT on Glasgow Green. I’ve followed the Glasgow band in various guises over the years, and Shattered Faith is an impressive rebirth.
DopeSickFly‘s American vocalist Ant Thomaz features on no less than two songs on the playlist. He fronts the reassembled Union Of Knives, as well as lending his voice to the latest from festival favourites Colonel Mustard And The Dijon 5 alongside TTF legend Mary Kiani.
Over 20 years since they first appeared in Isle Of Lewis-formed band Astrid, Willie Campbell and Charlie Clark both have new solo albums in the pipeline. Willie gives us the title track of his upcoming record Soundtrack To The Life We Leave Behind. Charlie’s Don’t Have A Cow, Man!, the first release on Alan McGee’s new label It’s Creation Baby, is a fine taster for his first solo long-player Late Night Drinking.
Other highlights on the playlist include tracks from Glasgow stars Baby Strange, Edinburgh youngsters Swim School and West Lothian’s Volka.
