If I say so myself, this is a good session for the New Sounds of Scotland series. We have new music from two bands we've profiled int the past -- The Spook School and Dolfinz. We also have a great-sounding song from a mysterious group named Berlin Heart which is a delicious mix of Link Wray, The Velvet Underground and The Dirty Beaches.
The Spook School is an Edinburgh indie/pop band with a delightful sound an always amusing blog (linked below). They just released a very nice two-track album entitled Are You Who You Think You Are?

We profiled Scottish two-piece Dolfinz earlier in the year. They are on our radar again with a two-track 7" Teenage Doom / Nosebleed 7", a very good fuzzy, punky noise pop set.
A Berlin Heart is a medical device used when a heart is failing. It also is the name of a Glasgow band that doesn't really want us to know any more about them at this point. Berlin Heart -- the band, not the medical device -- has released this wonderful bit of dark, minimalist, dirty surf to get us in the mood for the holidays. The name of the song is Blanket Over Sky. By the way, the song is released on Re:Peater Records, who also released the She's Hit and Jacob Yates & the Pearly Gate Lock Pickers this year.
