The Kitchen Sessions consistently produce acoustic sessions with some fantastic talent from the West of Scotland, and I particularly like this latest one. My knowledge of Alan Frew isn’t great, but I’ll definitely be checking out more after seeing this footage of him playing Go Easy, which is a quite gorgeous track.
Not a new video, but I saw this done live a few months ago and have been looking forward to hearing it since, and it just so happens that will be happening tonight.
It’s Michael Cassidy playing Battleships, which is apparently on his impending debut album, and if you head down to Stereo tonight you will be able to catch him supporting Brown Bear and the Bandits at their EP launch. More details here.
Brown Bear and the Bandits launched the Truth or Dare EP at Stereo last night, and I’ve got more words on the way about the gig and the EP soon. If you were not there though, you can have a swatch at some footage of the gig and give yourself a kick in the nuts for missing a great night.
Mechanical Smile launch the Into The Surface EP tomorrow night at Bakers in Kilmarnock, with a stellar supporting cast of Carnivores, MakeThisRelate, Vasa and Tragic O’Hara. You can purchase tickets from the band’s Big Cartel now, and can get a preview of the EP in the video for Afterlife below.
The Ayrshire outfit is also in the running for Red Bull Bedroom Jam, so head over to their page and give them a vote (and then they won’t be on spam duties forever more!).
The video was shot by Shootback Productions.
