The Pearlfishers
Love & Other Hopeless Things

Ah, The Pearlfishers! following a Scottish tradition for blissful alternative pop music without really being noticed since 1991. Obvious points of reference are Surf's Up-era Beach Boys, The Beatles and Teenage Fanclub but there’s elements of Prefab Sprout and Michael Head that appear in the songs of head Pearfilsher David Scott too. Love & Other Hopeless Things is their new album. LP and CD on Marina.

The Pearlfishers
The Strange Underworld Of The Tall Poppies

The Pearlfishers - as we stated in our review of their recent Love & Other Hopeless Things LP  - are possibly Scotland's best kept secret. Their songwriting recalls 60s greats such as Brian Wilson and the Byrds but it seems barely anyone has heard of them.  Here is a re-issue of their debut LP originally slated for RSD15. Not sure why we have copies suddenly appear but here they are  - and we should all be grateful.

Goosebumps – 25 Years Of Marina Records

Who knew it was 25 years since Marina Records started releasing indie pop. Well it is. And to celebrate they've unleashed this 3LP or 2CD set of all their most important bits so you can celebrate in style. Contains tracks from the past present and future such as Shack, the Pale Fountains, the Pearlfishers, Paul Haig and many many more. 

Brent Cash
The New High

Brent Cash is a pop mastermind like they used to make ‘em, building songs with an almost symphonic level of lush detail. He even plays all the instruments himself (apart from the strings)! As you can imagine, all that takes time, so The New High is his first album in five years, but it's well worth the wait if you like Van Dyke Parks-esque vintage super-pop! Out on Marina.

Starless
Starless

Starless is a project of Paul McGeechan (Love & Money), featuring full-blown dramatic sweep courtesy of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Collaborators also include members of The Bathers, The Blue Nile and Capercaillie, all contributing to a set of grand orchestral art-pop. Released by the Marina label.
