took me a while to post this. owls at audio in glasgow 16/09/14. one of the best gigs i’ve been to in a long time. photos by bruce mackintosh ( botanics.tumblr.com / uglyimperfection.tumblr.com )
Two lovely Chicago native bands who both find their home on Count Your Lucky Stars Records, plus on Glasgow local who does too? We should call this CYLSfest!
In all seriousness, Dowsing come out of that great school of bands who listened to a bunch of great emo, indie and punk records when they were kids and pieced it together into a range of hook filled catchy pop songs that grab you right in the feelings.
Kittyhawk offer a similarly honest approach to songwriting with autobiographical lyrics over sweet pop-rock melodies that sweep you up in their delicate nuances.
The Great Albatross is an ex-California native, turned Glasgow local who blends folk, pop and emo into an honest and heartfelt mixture of lovely guitar work and sweet vocals that tell stories of modern life in an engaging and warm way.
Flakes play emo, apologise a lot and also have parts that sway into post rock. A charming, if somewhat nervous, young band with a great deal of potential.

re-reading Batman : YEAR ONE by Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli. every single page is just an absolutely astounding work of well thought out art, and David Mazzuchelli’s vision of Batman makes every single sketch of Batman i’ve done in my life look like garbage.
