Hi everyone.

Our new album Clumsy Knot was successfully released today! As the sedation steadily wore off, it clambered out of its reinforced pet-carrier and took its first steps into the wild and unkempt music marketplace.

Here are some nice things that people have said about it (and not just out of politeness neither!)

THE HERALD
“the Jonathan Richman of Scottish indie”

THE METRO
“Masters of melody… lo-fi indie-pop gems”

THE LIST
“wordplay-fuelled compendium of lovesick croons, instrumental wrangles, awkward hosannas and gorgeous, longing pop arias”

THE SCOTSMAN
“Album of the week”

THE SKINNY
“Merry silliness… low-key beauty… some of Ross’s finest work”

THE QUIETUS
“The next generation of witty Scottish indie pop”

FOLK RADIO UK
“Thoughtful, funny and uplifting album”

NETSOUNDS UNSIGNED
“A near perfect and lovely 45 minutes that you’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere else”

THE GAUDIE
“Quietly hilarious… entertaining and thoughtful from start to finish”

It’s available on CD and vinyl both of which come with a booklet entitled A Field Guide to Clumsy Knot to help you navigate your way through the album.

You can buy it NOW from our website.

It’s also available via Lost Map as well as from the following retailers:

If you want a sneaky preview of the album, Folk Radio UK are streaming it for one week only!

Huge thanks to everyone who came along to the launch gig at Glasgow’s Kinning Park Complex. We had a great time. Sweet Baboo and Rachael Dadd both played wonderful sets. Here are some photos from the night courtesy of Matthew McAndrew at the Line of Best Fit.

Thanks to Johnny from Lost Map for running the event, Kid Canaveral and eagleowl representatives for doing the merch desk, the Kinning Park staff for being utterly staffsome and friendly plus Lloyd, Sarah and everyone else who lent a hand.

Hope you can get hold of the album and enjoy it. Here are our upcoming gigs. Maybe see you soon!
