Almost Scottish Fiction Volume 5

Posted by Neil Wilson

Almost Scottish Fiction Vol 5
Another month and another six tracks to indulge in courtesy of Scottish Fiction and our good pals Almost Predictable, Almost.  This month we’ve got the highest of high fashion as evidenced by our brilliant cover art – again provided by Findlay from burnhouse industries.  So dive in and strut your stuff with tracks from Earths, Poor Frisco, The Maybes, Gus Harrower, YuTaNi and Nothing Universe.

Once again the EP is curated by myself on behalf of Scottish Fiction, and David McElroy from Almost Predictable, Almost and features tracks from our favourite artists over the past four weeks.  To grab your copy head along to the Scottish Fiction Bandcamp, or the Almost Predictable, Almost Bandcamp and download for free.


Earths – Kangerlussuaq

Kangerlussuaq demonstrates a new, previously unseen, side to Earths.  Stripped away from the fuzz and lo-fi elements, we see uplifting guitars, crisp percussion and haunting vocals.

Poor Frisco – What’s Left of It

Taken from their forthcoming debut album, What’s Left of It showcases Poor Frisco at their best.  With shades of The Shins and Pixies at play, What’s Left of It is a great track from the East Kilbride five piece.

The Maybes – What You Can Remember

The Maybes are a Glasgow based duo whose recent EP Contra Todos features this track, What You Can Remember, which displays their melodic indie pop at its best.

Gus Harrower – Mystery

Mystery is the lead and title track from the debut EP by Edinburgh’s Gus Harrower.  At only 17, Gus is already a talented singer/songwriter who brings to mind the likes of Bon Iver.

YuTaNi – Mt. Minakami

YuTaNi is the solo project of Machines In Heaven’s Connor Reid.  His album, At The End Of Day, is a superb mix of downtempo and ambient elctronica.  Mt Minakami is the album’s centrepiece – a beautiful slice of electropop influenced electronica and one of this year’s outstanding tracks.

Nothing Universe – Pyre

With a track taken from the band’s live EP recorded at King Tut’s, this track showcases the direction that Nothing Universe, previously known as Phases, have been taking with their music.  Layered, dense, and intriguing Pyre builds things up only to tear it all down in an climatic frenzy.
