- EP by The Scottish Enlightenment
Oh I hate music. No I don’t: I LOVE MUSIC, especially when it comes in this kind of format, a numbered 7” full of photos and bits and bobs and life affirming home-made songs that make you wish you were going for a wander on some Fife coastline before retiring to a warm seaside pub to watch a dog relax by the fire.
Four songs altogether. First off ‘Gal Gal’ is a kind of Mogwai-ish instrumental full of vim and vigour. Next is ‘The Strong Force’, which sounds like Low with snails pace bass, guitars and carefully chosen vocal lines apologetically creeping into the mix. Overleaf ‘Black Dog’ shows off their Scottish heritage with a folky-ish number which recalls King Creosote or any person on Fence records. The final ‘The Universe is Drifting’ has maybe a bit of Twilight Sad about it, with some folky acoustic guitars and Slint-like drums behind some heavily Scottish accented vocals.
All in all a great little 7” package that I’d suggest you consider buying.
