1 - WYNNTOWN MARSHALS, THE - THE END OF THE GOLDEN AGE - (CD) 
BLUE ROSE


The End Of The Golden Age is the third album by Edinburgh - based band The Wynntown Marshals, and is the bands second release on German label Blue Rose Records. The record is the follow up to the critically acclaimed LPs The Long Haul (2013) and Westerner (2009).The album sees the band drawing on their Scottish roots to give their own uniquely personal take on the Americana genre - the cinematic lyrics on this Caledonian scrapbook tell tales of migrations from Hebridean islands and modern life in the capital city, the sights. smells and sounds of Aberdeenshire fairgrounds, and the rural landscapes of West Lothian. The music is similarly widescreen in scope and the influences are diverse; the jangling, pile - driving guitars and rich harmonies owing as much to countrymen Teenage Fanclub as to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers; the use of effects, horns and synths evoking the music of peers such as Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans. The central themes of the record are those of memories and nostalgia, and there are frequent references to times, people and places past. The lyrics speak of blossoming (and fragmenting) relationships and a yearning for days gone by and are sometimes tinged with regret, but theres also an undeniable, unshakeable energy and a healthy undercurrent of optimism which tempers the downbeat subject matter of many of these songs.

3 - WYNNTOWN MARSHALS, THE - THE LONG HAUL - (CD) 
CHARGER


the Marshals took a more DIY approach to recording the follow up to 2009s critically acclaimed Westerner - widely regarded as one of the best European Americana releases of the last decade. Organ and piano are more prominent this time round and there are pop hooks aplenty, sitting comfortably alongside more guitar heavy tracks and subtler, more intimate moments.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Driveaway 02. Canada 03. Low Country Comedown 04. Whatever It Takes 05. The Submariner 06. Tide 07. Crashing (like The Reds) 08. Curtain Call 09. North Atlantic Soul 10. Change Of Heart
