In this week’s round-up: Glasgow duo join Chemikal Underground roster; Edinburgh School for the Deaf set out on tour; plus this week’s new music and Scottish gig guide.
Good Monday to you. It’s another quiet one I’m afraid, but let’s crack on regardless.
• First off, congratulations are in order for Conquering Animal Sound, who since our last missive announced that they’ve signed with Chemikal Underground. That lot are fairly sweeping up the fine bands this year. In a very exciting development, Chemikal also announced that the duo has been finishing off the followup to the SAY-nominated Kammerspiel, which will be called On Floating Bodies, with producer Paul Savage since the start of the year in Chem19. Ooh.
Said Anneke and James from the band: “We’re super chuffed to be working with Chemikal Underground, Scotland’s finest record label. The opportunity they gave us to mix the new album with Paul at Chem19 has made it sound all the better. Thanks to Richard at Gizeh for all his great work, we are sad to be moving on from his label, but the £2m signing on fee with Chemikal, not to mention the private jets, live-in villa and CAS-branded Reebok Hexalites was just too good to turn down.”
• Edinburgh School for the Deaf will join The Electric Sugar Children, Trixie’s Big Red Motorbike and The Paranoid Style on a Scottish mini-tour this September. ESFTD will be showcasing work from their next album while the Electric Sugar Children, originally from Perth but now London-based, will be releasing theirs. They’ll be at Sneaky Pete’s Edinburgh on September 6, the Cool Cat Club @ Beat Generator, Dundee on September 7 and The Old Mill, Strathaven on September 8.
• The 10:04s tell us their new double-a-side single ‘Lights Out/Pull it Apart’ is being released this week. The songs were recorded with Tony Doogan at Castle of Doom.
