Sweaty Palms, Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016

Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016, Sweaty Palms

Glaswegian quartet Sweaty Palms’ latest EP, ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ was recorded at Green Door Studios in Glasgow and is released on Friday on 7″ vinyl / download via new label Black Sheep Records.

From their social media posts and their lyrics, Sweaty Palms possess a wonderfully dark, observational humour in all that they do. And while ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ is a refreshingly brilliant record, their brand of scuzzy, lo-fi punk and grunge is best experienced live.

They play tonight at the George Orwell in Dundee, on Friday at Glasgow’s Broadcast (their official EP launch), on the T Break stage at T In The Park on 10 July and at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 15 July. They then embark on a UK tour that includes dates in London, Cardiff, and Manchester, and perform at Electric Fields Festival on 26 August.

Modern Studies, Scotland On Sunday, 19 June 2016

Scotland On Sunday, 19 June 2016, Modern Studies

The term supergroup tends to conjure up images of self-indulgent aging rockers, usually past their sell-by date.

However, Modern Studies are the exception, bringing together the combined talents of the amazing Emily Scott, the ubiquitous Rob St John, drummer/venue manager Joe Smillie and arguably Scotland’s most prolific cellist Pete Harvey. Carried by a piano melody and Scott’s captivating vocals, the band’s debut single Ten White Horses begins as an understated joy before building into a magical climax of quirky brilliance.

The single gives a taste of Modern Studies’ debut album, Swell To Great, which is released on Song, By Toad Records in September, and we predict it will be a contender for next year’s SAY Award.

Expect a bunch of dates to be announced soon and in the meantime listen at
