A collection of new music projects from UWS – My Critique

Those of you who’ve been following the blog recently will know I recently completed a new free sampler as part of one of my Honours modules at UWS. This is my critique of some of the other submissions that I’ve heard. More may follow as they’re made available to me. Continue reading

The Punks Are Writing Love Songs…

It’s that time of year. By the time you read this post, I’ll be sitting my last assessment as a third year music student (and mentally preparing myself to get mildly inebriated afterwards). Summer is almost upon us, and what better way to usher it in than with a healthy dose of gorgeous twee pop?

So to celebrate this auspicious occasion, and to comiserate the last project to be recorded at Sabotage in Ayr before it closes up shop, my band, The Awkward Turtle, will be releasing this lovely little number:

That’s right, a mini EP full of Tullycraft songs. Neat, eh?

The EP will be released next monday from our bandcamp page for FREE! That’s right, FREE! With capitalisation for good measure! So feel free to download, burn, distribute and/or destroy as you please!

And, as a little teaser, here’s the first track!

The album goes live at 12 noon GMT on Monday 24th May, exactly two days before I turn 21. Isn’t that just marvellous!?

So, till then, I’m off to drink some tea and knit. Fuck me, I’m twee!

See you in the future,
