1 - FINDLAY NAPIER - GLASGOW - (CD) 
CHEERYGROOVE


Second solo album from acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter Findlay Napier. Produced and co-written by Boo Hewerdine. "Songcraft and wit in the Difford & Tilbrook tradition" (Sunday Herald) "A beautiful amalgam of Scottish soul, funk and folk" (Irish American Times)Following huge acclaim for his 2015 solo debut VIP: Very Interesting Persons, Scotland's Findlay Napier again unites superb songwriting, magpie-minded imagination and compellingly vivid vocals on his new album Glasgow. A characteristically wry yet lyrical, offbeat yet heartfelt paean to his adopted home town, it features freshly-penned, instantly memorable originals alongside classic and contemporary gems from the city's rich ballad canon. From modern-day vignettes like opener 'Young Goths In the Necropolis' - its bittersweet emotional charge evoking a Caledonian Loudon Wainwright - to the tenderly imagined love-story of 'The Locarno, Sauchiehall St 1928', reminiscent of the late great Michael Marra (whose wonderfully whimsical 'King Kong's Visit to Glasgow' is also covered), the album's musical map spans shipyards and late-night chippies, wily street veterans and warring football fans, patron saints and musical icons. Other covers include Hamish Imlach's 'Cod Liver Oil and the Orange Juice'; a dreamily ardent rendering of The Blue Nile's 'A Walk Across the Rooftops', and a gorgeous new ballad, 'Marchtown', by ex-Delgado Emma Pollock.
