MONKOORA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Monkoora is the musical moniker for producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer Julie Fern Crawford.
Her new six-track EP (seven including a radio edit of lead single ’Bocx Wurld’), was released last week via Glasgow-based artist management agency and record label Hot Gem.
The single has picked up radio support, while last year’s mini-LP, ‘Pale Slopes’ is on the eligibles list for this years Scottish Album of the Year award.
Monkoora creates bright bubble-gum electronica pop music, but with meaty lyrics exploring sexual politics, and philosophy.
We highly recommend seeing Monkoora live as part of Edinburgh’s Hidden Door Festival on 3 June.

MT. DOUBT Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
MT. DOUBT began two years ago in Edinburgh as the solo project of singer-songwriter Leo Bargery, and is now a very promising sextet.
Mt. Doubt have been on our radar for a while. They’ve played T In The Park, supported artists like White Lies and Admiral Fallow and Bargery’s distinctive vocals and accomplished songwriting have led to airplay on Roddy Hart’s BBC Radio Scotland show and BBC 6 Music.
See Mt. Doubt and Foreignfox perform live together on 7 April at Beat Generator in Dundee and 8 April at Nice ’N’ Sleazy’s in Glasgow. Support for both gigs comes from young Edinburgh quartet SKJØR who we featured last year. Listen to ’Tourists’ at https://soundcloud.com/mtdoubt
