Glasgow duo Le Thug are a band I’d definitely say shouldn’t be judged by their name, just if you were thinking about it. Great instrumental can be a tricky thing to crack and judging by the ear-catching track ‘Sport’ they’ve started with a mighty fine crack at it.
Here they share the love with their Play a Song for Me selection of great music!
Ravedeath 1972 – Tim Hecker
Electronic but in no way artificial, on this album Hecker creates searing soundscapes which naturally mesmerize you with their intensity. His Glasgow gig in May at St Andrews in the Square was equally captivating. Sitting in darkness, on temporarily assembled pews in a converted church seemed the perfect environment for hearing his music at tremendous volume. As religious an experience as I’ve ever had anyway.
She Lives by the Castle 2 – further
further are a 90s lo-fi American indie guitar band. I think they contained member/s that went on to form Beachwood Sparks but I much prefer the further material to Beachwood Sparks. This tune is probably one of my favourites of all time and I’d like others to hear it too. Guitar is sublime. Outro amazing.
Machines in Heaven
Machines in Heaven are a Glasgow band who make tremendous post-electronica-dreamcore music . I just made that genre up, so for a better description of how they sound listen to this superb demo track from their forthcoming album. In fact, listen to the whole Soundcloud, its really rather good.
Listen to Le Thug’s track Sport right here, part of a forthcoming free EP Ripping, which will be released shortly.
