So, I’ve failed on all accounts recently, behind on reviews, behind on uni work, behind on life but I figured I should bring you some new so here goes:
Duglas T Stewart of BMX Bandits has compiled Love Letter To Japan to raise money for the Japan. The album is exclusively available for one month only. Duglas added “Scottish acts have received a lot of love and support from people in Japan over the years, so it’s about sending some love back.”
The 18-track album features new songs, from composer Craig Armstrong, Stevie Jackson (Belle & Sebastian), BMX Bandits, The Pastels, Bill Wells, The Pearlfishers, Snowgoose, Alasdair Roberts, Paul Quinn, The Starlets, Eugenius. It’s £8 BUY.
