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.

Posable Action Figures, Scotland On Sunday, 24 April 2016

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon, Scotland On Sunday, 24 April, Posable Action Figures

Posable Action Figures are Gareth Goodlad (guitar and vocals) and John Alexander (drums, samples and backing vocals), an electro, pop-rock band from Edinburgh.

For the past year, they’ve been tucked away in a Leith basement, writing and rehearsing and released their self-titled EP, (produced by David Lloyd of Stillhound / Discopolis) at the beginning of the month.

The results are marvellous; epic guitar riffs, infectious vocal melodies, tight staccato drums and samples – a brilliant debut. Single, ‘Mainline’ received a spin on Vic Galloway’s BBC Radio Scotland show last week. Watch the video for our favourite ‘Not At All’

The duo play Sneaky Pete’s this Friday, The Electric Circus on 20 May, Glasgow’s BLOC on 31 May and ButeFest on the Isle of Bute 29-31 July.
