Video News: Dead Boy Robotics/Michael Cassidy/Sparrow and the Workshop/Tango In The Attic/Three Blind Wolves/Vukovi

Posted on January 10, 2012


I meant to post this a while ago, but am a bit shit, so thought it was better late than never. Dead Boy Robotics have just released their eponymous debut album, and Gregor from the band shot this video for the lead-off single Gatherer on the Threshold. You can buy the album now, and I’d highly recommend seeing this band live, which you do at Limbo on 20th January.

Another one I’m late with, but as I’m almost finished a rewatch of the series that made the track famous I thought now was asĀ  good a time as any. This is Michael Cassidy covering Tom Waits’ Way Down In The Hole, which of course was the theme tune to Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Michael plays King Tut’s New Years Revolution next week and he has a great ticket plus EP deal here.

Sparrow and the Workshop don’t do shit videos. In fact, they always have fantastic promos and this effort for You Don’t Trust Anyone is no different. The video was put together by Sally Sibbet and Danny Pattison as part of a project at Glasgow School of Art, and puts many ‘professional’ shoots to shame.

Tango In The Attic have put up this live session taster for their upcoming second album. The track is called Swimming Pool and it will feature on the long player which is set for an April release. You can also catch the bandplaying King Tut’s on Thursday as part of New Year’s Revolution. If you’re travelling from Fife you can get a bus and a ticket for only a fiver by posting on the Facebook event wall.

Three Blind Wolves released Echo on the Night Train last March as a bonus track for the re-release of their brilliant debut album, Sound of the Storm. When things are good they generally have legs, and this video has just appeared online for the track.

I had planned on posting Vukovi‘s video for Schwagger a wee while ago too, and then they were caught on camera playing Gutless at a sold out King Tut’s last night, so I thought I may aswell go for the double whammy. The band’s 2nd EP is out now, but I’ll have more about that very soon.

Young Fathers are giving away the 8 track Tape One for free on Bandcamp now, and if this doesn’t convince you Scottish hip-hop is in a very strong place then nothing will, and you must be a dick. Here’s the promo for Rumbling that accompanies it.
