Prolific Scots folkie Alasdair Roberts is back again with a troupe of buddies accompanying him as he romps through another series of his updates to traditional Scottish music. The accompaniment (and even occasional use of electric instruments) does give it a bit of a lift and in comparison to his solo outings it seems positively upbeat, although the lyrical content is often still most dour.

In the lyrics booklet there’s a little spiel by each song explaining the finer details of their traditional origins or inspirations, which I think is a really nice touch as someone who has probably heard more Alasdair Roberts records than actual traditional Scottish folk. I feel that in places the arrangements on this album actually seem to owe as much to Americana as to traditional Scottish music (only in places, mind) and it’s a very easy record to listen to, clearly the product of much care and attention.
