About five years ago, I reviewed (Favourably) the debut EP from a band called Blue Sky Archives. It’s impressive to see just how far singer Lauren Mayberry has come. (And of course Iain Cook was in Aereogramme, the cruelly underrated Scots band of the 200s). Following on from a host of excellent singles and a great debut The Bones Of What You Believe, the band are due to release their justifiably anticipated album Every Open Eye on September 25.
The tracklisting for the album is as follows:
1.Never Ending Circles
2.Leave A Trace
3.Keep You On My Side
4.Make Them Gold
6.High Enough To Carry You Over
8.Down Side Of Me
The lyric video for ‘Leave A Trace’ can be seen below:
As always, if you like what you hear, go and support the bands by checking out their MySpace sites and becoming their friends, buying the music from iTunes or Amazon or your local independent shop, seeing them in concert, and of course, voting for scottish acts at Jock’n’Roll

Well, and here we are! This is the 100th post I have done on the blog. Over the course of seven months, my interest in music, along with comments on teaching and hitting thirty have given me something to work on. Whilst I still dream of having as many readers as some of the other blogs, the feedback I have received has been flattering, and if I had as little rubbish to deal with at school as I do here, life would be easier!!
Thanks to my long-suffering girlfriend, and my family for their feedback, and friends and readers (of course, these are not necessarily mutually exclusive) who have helped this come along. I have learned more about computers along the way, and there’s probably fewer rants about it all now…
What I’ve done this time is just to pick ten great tracks, no theme, just stuff I love, and really hope you do too. As ever, if you like’em, do go and buy them.
Here’s to the next one hundred posts. Enjoy the music.
