Almost Scottish Fiction Volume 6
We’ve taken a short break from our Almost Scottish Fiction EP series, so we’re delighted to be back this month with Volume Six featuring six great new tracks.  This month we’ve delighted to feature three tracks from the legendary Night School Records.  Intersected amongst those are cuts from Eyes of Others, Glasgow based producer Turtle, and the return of Inspector Tapehead.

As always this month’s 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 months.   To grab your copy head along to the Scottish Fiction Bandcamp, or the Almost Predictable. Almost Bandcamp and download for free.

 

Apostille – Good Man

Good Man is the first of three tracks we’re featuring this month from Glasgow’s Night School RecordsApostille is the alter ego of label boss Michael Kasparis and Good Man is a prime example of the electronics inspired by the likes of Fad Gadget that make his Powerless album one of this year’s outstanding releases

Eyes of Others – Binary World

Eyes of Others is the new project of John Brydon previously of Edinburgh band The Machine RoomBinary World revels in staccato synths with a bittersweet feel.

Sally Dige – Hard To Please

Sally Dige is the second of our Night School Records artists.  Her superb brand of moody, atmospheric synthpop really caught the ear this year.  Hard To Please is the title track from her Night School released album and it’s one for fans of electronic pop of all genres

Inspector Tapehead – The Cold Slipstream

Returning with a brand new album, So Solar, Inspector Tapehead have kindly allowed us to feature this track from the album on the latest Almost Scottish Fiction EP.  The Cold Slipstream showcases all facets of Inspector Tapehead – a group comprising of Chris Croasdale, Jonnie Common and Roy Mohan Shearer. – with cheerful guitars, and eccentric looped feedback.

Molly Nilsson – 1995

Our final Night School Records artist is Molly Nilsson whose first album for the label, Zenith, is released in November.  1995 is a slice of dark pop music, reminiscent of say John Maus, to whet your appetite for what is going to be a superb album

Turtle – March of the Capitalists

Something a bit different and much more avant-garde from the Scottish producer Turtle.  Having previously wowed fans with his lush electronica landscapes, March of the Capitalists is a Python-esque soundtrack with a gleeful spin on a hopeless subject.
