2010's Top 10 Albums: #10 - The Last Battle

So begins my countdown of the top 10 albums of the year, and what a year it has been, particularly for Scottish music.  Sure, there's been plenty of outstanding non-Scottish ones this year with The National, Arcade Fire, Get Well Soon and a certain, flamboyant Icelandic chap to name but a few!  I've decided though, to do the patriotic thing, and make it an all Scottish Top 10.  Even that's been a hard slog to narrow down my favourites, with another unlucky THIRTEEN brilliant albums missing out! 

Anyway, as the album cover suggests, it's Edinburgh's The Last Battle who get the ball rolling this year with their fantastic debut Heart Of The Land, Soul Of The Sea.  You can read what I had to say about it earlier this year here, and below are two of the standout tracks for you to have a wee listen to...

As a wee early Christmas pressie, The Last Battle are giving away current single Natures Glorious Rage along with two other tracks on their bandcamp.  Weather permitting, you can also catch them before the end of the year...
