Eilidh McGuire – House Red / Lucky

This tiny gem floats in the window and settles down on your shoulders like a warm ray of sunshine, with the light brogue in the vocal both wry and soothing in the way that only Scottish singers can be. Like your favourite whisky, it’s a nip of warmth for all your dark places. Learn More: […]

Organs – Talk Me Out

Organs’ gleeful mayhem bristles and sparks through this sub-three-minute romp of fun and games. With the ghost of Royal Headache looming large in the background, it’s a crackling slab of high-revving energy, skinny in the trouser and bulging in the eye. What a gas.
