Adrian Crowley
Dark Eyed Messenger

Sad songwriter Adrian Crowley's fourth album for Chemikal Underground (though he did plenty before this association) finds him disassociating himself with the instrument that has been a constant companion throughout his career. The humble guitar. Instead 'Dark Eyed Messenger' sits Crowley's chocolate brown voice above a combinat...view item »

Mogwai
Come On Die Young

This deluxe edition of ‘Come On Die Young’ has been painstakingly put together by the band and label, unearthing more than an hour of bonus material, including: Previously unreleased takes from early Chem19 sessions of ‘Waltz For Aidan’, ‘Christmas Steps’, ‘Rollerball’ and ‘7...view item »

El Hombre Trajeado
Fast Diagonal

El Hombre Trajeado were a big deal for Glasgow’s alternative music makers back in the day, but they’ve been away since 2004… No longer! Now, new album Fast Diagonal is here. Joining the original cast (including RM Hubbert!) are several guest vocalists, including Ela Orleans...view item »

Alun Woodward
Music From Battle Mountain

Alun Woodward hasn’t been sighted in the music world for 7 years, but the former Delgado / Lord Cut Glass man now returns under his own name to soundtrack a film about maverick Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree. Music From Battle Mountain is a lush, looped-up set of electronica that s...view item »

Arab Strap
Arab Strap

Look at them there on the sleeve. They look a lot older than that now and to the delight of their fans have reformed for a few shows this October. To tie in with this comes this compilation of some of their best bits as well as rarities and B sides etc.  Arab Strap were always a lot more than their pished up image suggested...view item »

FOUND
Terra Nova

FOUND produced the music presented on Terra Nova as part of a commission for a project that considered the fate of the 1910 Antarctic expedition ship of that name. Naturally, synthesisers were used to represent this adventure: at least they can capture the icy chill of those frozen wastes. LP edition on Chemikal Undergr...view item »

Rick Redbeard
Awake Unto

Rick Redbeard is the solo alias of Rick Anthony, principal member of Scottish cosmic rock dudes The Phantom Band. Awake Unto is his second solo album and follow up to No Selfish Heart. Redbeard is influenced by the folkish poetic musings of Leonard Cohen, Bill Callahan...view item »

RM Hubbert
Telling The Trees

RM Hubbert is a Scottish singer-songwriter making music in that fine tradition: morose but funny, tough but beautiful. On Telling The Trees he collaborates with a wide array of vocalists, including Rachel Grimes, Kathryn Williams and Martha Ffion. Without Hubber...view item »

Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells
(If You) Keep Me In Your Heart

I once had the 'luxury' of watching Aidan Moffat shout "Shut up you fucking cunts!" at an audience made-up partly of Mogwai's Mums and Dads at a homecoming Glasgow show a few years back. Contrary to expectations, he hasn't ended up in the gutter and instead has carved a remarkable and varied career for himself over the years. I've just seen a ph...view item »

Mogwai
Young Team - Deluxe Edition

There's probably not too much to say about Mogwai's Young Team that hasn't been said before so I'm not gonna review it.. I'm just gonna tell you of it's renewed existence as a 4LP boxset and 2 CD set with loads of extra gubbins (live tracks and unreleased nubbins). The vinyl has been out of print for ages and it's going for about 30 quid so you can...view item »

Emma Pollock

Cloning

In the four years since their 2011 album, Factorycraft, Scottish folktronica band, Found have reduced their numbers to become a duo of founding members Ziggy Campbell and Kev Sim.

Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells
DILF_77 Would Like To Talk

I’ll bet you don’t own a record titled anything even close to this. Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells’ new work, DILF_77 Would Like To Chat is a mini-album of their excellent collaboration, Moffat’s gruff poetics over Wells’ chamber orchestration. The title tra...view item »

The Good Fighting EP

Model Fighter. Highly limited (to 300 each format i'm told!) 4 track CD single and 12" vinyl on Chemical Underground's Fukd.id series.

Machine Age Dancing

These guys have signed to Chemikal Underground after being on Fence for a while. There's an album due in a week or two but this week sees the release of Machine Age Dancing! It's an interesting one this... They've somehow managed to cram about a thousand styles of music into one single and somehow make it work. That takes a few things, namely; s...view item »

The Phantom Band
Fears Trending

Some big sounds from Scots The Phantom Band. Fear Trending is the next installment from the half-dozen bunch. It's full of rocky guitars, wacky electronics and sincere Celtic crooning. It's proggy, post-rockish and has simple melodies which act as a contrast to the raucous instrumental madness. ...view item »

Sound of Yell
Sound of Yell

Searching mood variations from Sound of Yell (aka Stevie Jones), on their new self-titled record. Exploring the textured and timbral effects of acoustic instruments, Sound of Yell takes you on a sonic folksy voyage. At times akin to Sufjan Steven's orchestrations, whilst juxtaposed Radiohead's dark angst, SoY i...view item »

Adrian Crowley
Some Blue Morning

RM Hubbert
The Ampersand Extras

Former El Hombre Trajeado guitarist RM Hubbert's 'Ampersand Trilogy' of solo albums have really established him as a formidable solo guitarist with a flamenco-inspired but still very Scottish sound. The collaboration-heavy 'Thirteen Lost and Found' even netted him the Scottish Album of the Year award. Those who are sad that the trilogy is finish...view item »

Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat
The Powers and the Glory of Love

Aidan Moffat seems to be turning to his twitter feed for inspiration more and more lately, with this single being born of a journo's challenge on Twitter to create a medley of all three classic '80s 'Power Of Love' singles. Cheeky Moffat's even thrown in a little bit of Peter Cetera's 'Glo...view item »

The Phantom Band
Strange Friend

The Phantom Band know folklore when they see it.

Holy Mountain
Ancient Astronauts

The mind-bending future pop of Islaja's latest offering just had me come over all weird but I'm re-fortifying myself now with a dose of hot coffee and my latest prescription of bombastic stoner rock from riff doctors Holy Mountain. Yup, if it's heavy psychedelia you're after then you can never go far wrong with this ...view item »

My Yoke Is Heavy: The Songs Of Daniel Johnston

It's all top stuff I've had to review from home this week, and this baby I've listened to quite a few times. It's a great collection of Daniel Johnston remakes from two renowned Celtic maestros. There's some really odd murky tape weirdness going on under the version of 'True Love Will Find You In The End' bu...view item »

Holy Mountain
Earth Measures

I dunno, it's not the most subtle of names I know but there's only a hardcore band from Florida who could contend the name, presumably a tribute to the surrealist headfuck that is the Jodorowsky film (almost if not as great as El Topo and just as baffling).

Knock On the Wall of Your Womb

Aidan Moffat I'm sure everyone knows about by now. Except on 'Knock On the Wall of Your Womb' he's almost started actually singing a bit, coming across less like a mumbling drunk in a seedy bar and more like a crooner in one, backed with slushy strings. I think it's really lovely! The B-side is billed as 'a short story for children', a long spoke...view item »

This is the second album by Found and this time they have the walloping might of Chemikal Underground behind them.
