Live Review: Eyre Llew, L-Space & Echo Arcadia @ Sneaky Pete’s 08/03/17

Words & Photo: The Captain It's a Wednesday night and what better to do than go to a gig on the Cowgate! Out of the line up, I've only ever heard Echo Arcadia before because they were on the final episode of "The Captain's Log" the week before. However, I have heard great things about … Continue reading Live Review: Eyre Llew, L-Space & Echo Arcadia @ Sneaky Pete’s 08/03/17

Song Review: Out in the Ocean by Megan D

(Photo Credit: Graham Mackenzie Photography) Megan D has always captivated me with her unique, soft voice. This song is no different. She has her own style that really does stand out, with her Scottish accent coming through (because what's better than an artist signing in their own accent, especially if it's Scottish?). This song is so … Continue reading Song Review: Out in the Ocean by Megan D

Album Review: Laurence Murray Project

Words: The Captain With twelve tracks to please your ears, this self-titled debut album from Laurence Murray Project is pretty bloody sweet. Hashtagged “Blues Rock”, this album is certainly that. Some songs lean more towards the rock side and other more towards a more breezy blues/jazz feel. With syrup sweet female vocals and silky smooth … Continue reading Album Review: Laurence Murray Project

Single Review: Tuesday Night by Amy Lou

Words: The Captain Tuesday Night is the the gorgeous debut single from singer/songwriter Amy Lou. The distinctly Scottish vocals are just like honey and the soft acoustic guitar that accompanies them just seals the deal for me. This track is simply beautiful and an amazing choice for a debut single. Her next single "Marine Biologist" … Continue reading Single Review: Tuesday Night by Amy Lou

Live Review: Snide Rhythms, May He Go, Two Wrongs @ The Electric Circus 19/05/15

Words: The Captain Once upon a time, in a city not so far away, a small crowd gathers at a venue. The city in question is *drum roll* EDINBURGH! Well done, if you got it right, you can have a Bucky Bomb! The bill tonight looks so simply delicious, so when two-piece instrumental band Two … Continue reading Live Review: Snide Rhythms, May He Go, Two Wrongs @ The Electric Circus 19/05/15

Live Review: Dune Rats w/ The Rich at Electric Circus, Edinburgh. (27/03/15)

Review for THROUGH THE WIRE MUSIC No.8

Through The Wire Music

Review: Leah Curtis.

THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY! It’s the weekend, so it’s time to let your hair down and shake your thang. The Electric Circus is a brilliant place to do so.
On the menu tonight:
Starter – The Rich: Edinburgh Rockers
Main Course – Dune Rats: Awesome Australian Stoner Pop

To wet our appetite, The Rich rock up to the stage and make it theirs. We are greeted with “Hello guys, how you doing?” (Audience interaction: tick). They are fucking awesome! With a good drum beat behind them and some remarkable vocals, these guys are amazing. They also have pretty good stage banter and at one point the drummer gets a drink delivery. Their music interchanges between loud and heavy, to showing their softer side.
Imagine rock, jazz and pop had a baby and this is The Rich. Sugar and Salt mixed together with sweat. Fucking brilliant!

The Rich at Electric Circus. The Rich…
