Last week I received an email from Arran Southall a.k.a. Arran Arctic with an mp3 from his recent "The Boy In Brown" album. I'm not usually drawn to one-man-bands but this really is lovely stuff! Having listened to the whole album it's staggering how much effort has gone into making it, especially considering all the of instruments intricately layered and blended together. Like I said, it's lovely stuff. And any album that kicks off with some classic King Creosote-esque accordion is great in my book!
The Boy In Brown can be bought here (highly recommended!) and as a wee taster you can download the lovely Tight Lipped Lover below. If you like what you hear then Arran will be doing a gig at the Secret CDs evening on 3rd February (7:30pm) in the Phoenix Cellar Bar on Broughton Street in Edinburgh!
