THE COGNAC TWINS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 20 August 2017, The Cognac Twins

Dunfermline duo, Craig Anderson and Paul Connelly aka The Cognac Twins have a long history of gigging together, but only recently got round to recording an album.

Inspired by a trip to France, and dedicated to a French musician who died this year, it is a soulful collection of songs with a folky feel, with guest musicians providing double bass, viola and keyboards.

Recorded and produced by Liam Saunders at his Loopmaniac Studio in Dunfirmline, the eponymous album has already piqued the interest of Radio Scotland’s Roddy Hart, who played the track Bricks and Mortar. https://soundcloud.com/loopmaniac/bricks-and-mortar

The Cognac Twins follow their vinyl launch party at Dunfermline’s Firestation Gallery on 1 September, with slots at the Mary Queen Of Scots Festival (2 September), the Outwith Festival (8-9 Septmber) and a series of living room shows scheduled for October.

MT. DOUBT Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 12 March 2017, MT. DOUBT

MT. DOUBT began two years ago in Edinburgh as the solo project of singer-songwriter Leo Bargery, and is now a very promising sextet.

They release latest single ’Tourists’ through Scottish Fiction records on 31 March as a split 7’ vinyl alongside Dunfermline band Foreignfox (for their single Lights Off Carry Me Home).

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
