New Sounds of Scotland--Part 12: Upcoming Releases and New Singles

In today's edition we'll mention some notable upcoming albums and showcase some singles from those releases.

Glasgow's Sons and Daughters are releasing their new LP, Mirror Mirror in June, as well. The band has been working at tweaking their hard hitting style with a bit of electronics, and I'm expecting a great album from this Rocksteady74 favorite. Below are two tracks and the promotional trailer for the album.

We discussed Edinburgh School for the Deaf in April (refresher view here). The band is releasing their debut LP of death jangle, New Youth Bible, in June. You can listen to the just released single below.

"Orpheus Descending/Orpheus Ascending"

I'm very happy to report that the beginning of fall will bring a new long playing present from one of my favorite young Scottish bands, Wake the President. The band plays classic Glasgow post punk indie pop characterized by Erik Sanberg's wry lyrical stories and punctuated by Bjorn Sanberg's excellent guitar work. While we wait for the album we can listen to its first single release:

A band we've profiled in March, SHe's HiT, will be releasing their first LP in June. We intend to review the album closer to its launch. For readers who need or want to refresh their memories, you can review our previous discussion of SHe's HiT here, and the video for their new single here.
