Music News 27/08/2012

Hey kids, here’s what’s been happening with local artists in the last day.

First off it’s regularly featured lassie Rachel Sermanni. She has been having a CRAZY year and this weekend she was at the Reading festival for BBC Introducing. You can watch some of her set here.

If you haven’t seen The Little Mill of Happiness live yet….well you’re shit out of luck for a while as they are having a gig break. On the plus side it’s to do a bit of writing. To prepare yourselves for the experience I recommend buying the Capsized Sailors EP here and then playing it a lot.

For those of you playing the news bingo game put a cross in the Cleavers box. Well sort of, it’s just Danny on his own with an acoustic guitar. Here’s Fading All Away. Nothing like the normal stuff but my ears holes liked it and wouldn’t mind hearing more like it.

I was going to link a bunch of Rockhopper sessions yesterday but went a bit mad trying to work out what ones I hadn’t linked yet. Pretty sure this one is new to these posts though. SO goNorth/Netsounds Unsigned (credit where it’s due) had Roadway in playing Midnight Dance. Fantastic stuff, and make sure you are at the Ironworks to watch them round out the Showcases in style.

You have until Saturday to win 1 of 5 pairs of tickets to Daft Funk in Dingwall. Head over to the Musique Dingwall page, friend them and when it’s approved like and share the indicated picture, it’s the last couple of posts. Should be a good night, even if it is just to see me looking out of place and throwing shapes.

And we’ll finish up with a wee bit of Scooty and the Skyhooks with Rescue Me from their support slot with Jools Holland at the weekend. They’ve also been posting photos galore. Well done to all the locals who had support slots this weekend for the 4 big gigs. Well 3, have no idea IF anyone supported JLS and if they did who it could possibly have been. Mind boggles.
