Scotland ain't doing so bad just now, what with the View taking over the charts and both Glasgow and Edinburgh (more to come on the latter's music scene soon) looking good with new bands a plenty. Union of Knives are one of the real gems though. This lot from Glasgow make superb tunes and I recommend this to anyone who has liked anything as wide ranged as I Love You but I've Chosen Darkness through to Stars.Union of Knives - Evil has NeverWord
is that Klaxons next single is to be Golden Skans. Excellent news. This track is far different to the sound which people have so far associated with the band which I think will bring them greater success than Magick which was easily their weakest track so far. The band looked every part the upcoming success story of 2007 on Jools Holland the other night. I imagine the track will be re-recorded for the album but here's an older version.

Bloc Party. Enough said. This track is the most anthemic and currently my favourite from the forthcoming album "A Weekend in the City".Bloc Party - I Still Remember
Hot Chip and DFA, what a combination. This one ain't anything new and its been flying about the blogs for ages but it has been keeping me company through some fairly dull studying this week so thought I'd share it with anyone who has been unfortunate enough to miss it thus far.Hot Chip - Like We Breakdown (DFA mix)
in excellent news for Edinburgh, top newcomers Foals
are playing a free gig at The Cabaret Voltaire
and I cannot recommend to you enough that you head over to both Headphone Sex
and Good Weather for Airstrikes
