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...
