|And so the idea was hatched that the Death Collective would set up camp in Kieran’s studio, recording a compilation around the lesser-known/scarcely-observed holiday of Swamp Day (red wine and answers) with all and any Deathies available.
About 20 turned up over the course of the week, laying down 15 tracks from 15 acts, fleshed out with contributions from one another – a mixture of artists at the relative beginnings of their careers, and those no strangers to BBC Scotland & Radio 6 airplay. Everyone in. Let’s dae it.
The end result is something truly special, a testament to how rich the scene is through here. Recorded, mixed, mastered, physically released and promoted in-house, the comp was released 31st May with a cosy launch show at the Tolbooth in Stirling.
So we now cordially invite you to gorge yourself online. You’ll find a tasting menu of everything from freak folk, post-punk and spoken word, to indie pop, Americana, hushed folk and gypsy romp.
