Description

Broken Chanter is the adopted name of David MacGregor. MacGregor spent the past decade as the principal songwriter of Scottish Alt-Pop darlings Kid Canaveral - a band that could get you to dance, laugh, and weep all in the space of a set. Their Debut LP Shouting at Wildlife was described by The Herald as "a Scottish pop classic that should be mandatory in every record collection in the country", with follow-up Now That You Are a Dancer being nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year Award in 2014. Following the completion of touring for Kid Canaveral's third record in late 2017, the natural break allowed MacGregor time to collect his thoughts, and some song fragments, and flesh them out into skeletal demos recorded in Ardnamurchan, Skye, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Ireland.

A light-hearted raconteur and heavy-hearted singer when accompanied by just a guitar, and a whirling dervish of noise and melody when fully electric, MacGregor spent February - May 2018 recording in Gort na Luchóg, Co. Donegal, nestled on a remote peninsula protruding into the Atlantic, and in Glenwood Studios in Glasgow with long-time collaborating engineer/producer Gal, Audrey Tait (Hector Bizerk, Birds of Paradise Theatre), Gav Prentice (Over the Wall, ULTRAS, National Theatre of Scotland), Jill O'Sullivan (Sparrow and the Workshop, bdy_prts), Hannah Shepherd (eagleowl, Withered Hand), Emma Kupa (Standard Fare, Mammoth Penguins, Hayman-Kupa Band) and Kim Carnie (BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017 Finalist).

The first Broken Chanter album is a record which paints an emotional and expansive soundscape with a distinct sense of place, that showcases MacGregor's ear for melody and dexterity at tugging heart-strings. It will be released into the world in September 2019 by Olive Grove Records and Last Night From Glasgow.

Randolph's Leap are a Glasgow-based musical project ranging from a solo act to an eight-piece band. Nairn-born Adam Ross and friends have been making pop music for unpopular people since 2010.

Randolph's Leap began releasing music via DIY labels in 2010. Their first full album release came in 2014 when Lost Map unveiled Clumsy Knot, an engrossing patchwork of jubilant brass-filled chamber pop and tender low-key folk. This was followed up in 2016 with Cowardly Deeds on Olive Grove Records, a noisy full-band album recorded in a remote farmhouse, while 2018 brought Worryingly Okay, a return to the fuzzy, lo-fi folksinger style of Adam's most early recordings. Adam has also recently toured Scotland, providing music for 'The Isle of Love', a successful 5-star reviewed theatre show inspired by lyrics from the band's extensive back catalogue.

Moonsoup make music your pets might like!

Dressed Like Wolves sees Rick Dobbing and his Spooker Recs pals make honest, frantic and heartfelt music about all the things and people that surround them (mostly girls and the sea, obv).

Sometimes its fuzzy sometimes its not. DIY Azzzzz.
