Glasgow’s self-styled “Princess of DIY Pop”, Carla J. Easton, released her second solo album, Impossible Stuff, to rapturous acclaim in autumn 2018. Recorded with Arcade Fire/Leonard Cohen producer Howard Bilerman at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango studio (a somewhat grander DIY workshop than previously), it sets her dreamily melodic songs amid splendid Spector-esque layers of brass, strings and analogue synths. “Easton’s maturing sound is intoxicating... essential indie pop” (Louder Than War)

With his compelling folk/soul songcraft and huskily resonant voice, singersongwriter Mark McGowan simultaneously evokes Stax-era Memphis, 1960s Greenwich Village and his own Glasgow home, where his profile is rapidly in the ascendant. “A phenomenal talent” (Tenement TV)
