...Wake The President!

I'll never tire of the great job done over at Rapal, especially when I heard that Wake The President were stopping by this week! Never gotten around to seeing the guys live but I've got nothing but praise for their debut album "You Can't Change That Boy". The comparisons with Belle and Sebastian are obvious (to a lazy reviewer like me) from the dreamy pop of their songs right down to the "Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like A Peasant"-esque album cover.

Lead singer Erik Sandberg and his brother (and guitarist) Bjorn are also responsible for the Say Dirty record label in Glasgow which has released material from the critically acclaimed Zoey Van Goey who play Sloans in Glasgow as part of the Oxjam Festival on the 24th October.

If you are stuck for something to do at 10pm on Wednesday tune into Rapal on BBC Alba! You won't be disappointed.
