- Roll Along by Roddy Woomble
Roddy Woomble is probably my second favourite Scotsman (after Finding Forrester) and almost definitely my favourite Roddy (just pipping Roddy Bottum to that mantle). His solo album is out soon (ish) and this is the first single from it. It's a world away from his day job as lead crooner in Idlewild...after saying that Idlewild have developed a more errmmm mature sound, almost folky at times. This single is almost pure folk but strangely enough its not folky enough for this reviewer. It's got a sort of mainstream-y type of production (trumpets section parping away) and a sort of louche tempo. It's pretty good but not enough big jumpers. The flip side is the A side but-can't-really-tell-the-difference radio edit. A solid song that makes you pine for the Scottish Highlands in a way. To quote my favourite Scotsman "Your the man now dog...!"
