Some New Scottish Indie Music

Two new releases from two great Scottish indie labels to bring to your attention.

First up is Unravelling from Edinburgh band Mt Doubt on the Scottish Fiction label from Neilston led by Neil Wilson
Some blurb from the label
Returning with their first new music of 2019, Unravelling sees Mt. Doubt working with producer Rod Jones (Idlewild, The Birthday Suit) at Post Electric Studios, giving the band a fresh lease of life. The single builds through out with chiming keys and melodic guitars swooning behind rich, warm vocals. Lyrically the track continues to display frontman Leo Bargery's penchant for societal observations. The song rails against the negative impacts of our phones, social media and the culture of incessant self-documentation whilst yearning for a reconnection with the natural world; sequoia trees, buzzards and all.

Mt Doubt are followed by Jo Mango & Friends who have a new EP out on Lloyd Merideth's Olive Grove label called System Hold
As the blurb states

The EP is the result of a collaboration that saw Jo team-up with internationally-renowned criminologist Professor Fergus McNeill (Emerald Publishing) to soundtrack his new book, Pervasive Punishment. The outstanding result of this unique project is System Hold, a beautifully crafted EP, brought to life by the adroit Jo Mango and friends.
