This coming Thursday at Stereo in Glasgow, 45 A-Side Records are hosting the Launch Night for The Glad Café Fundraiser Scottish compilation album. In case you didn't already know, The Glad Café is a new venture being set up in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow. It will host a 50 cover restaurant/café and a 200 capacity arts venue finally providing the south side arts community. The album, which is released on the 4th of October, is a 13-track compilation feaurting Barn Owl, Song Of Return, Olympic Swimmers, Conquering Animal Sound, Field Mouse, Dam Mantle, The Japanese War Effort, Fox Gut Daata, Yahweh, Debutant, Admiral Fallow, The Seventeenth Century and The Moth And The Mirror.
The launch at Stereo will feature live sets from Barn Owl, Conquering Animal Sound, Song Of Return and Dam Mantle, plus there will also be a DJ set from Detour-Scotland. Advanced tickets for the show are available here for just four pounds and pre-orders for the album are available on their Bandcamp.

I know that I normally save Fridays for any free downloads that I have come across that week, but this little number from Peenko favourites, French Wives, was too good not to mention. Tomorrow (the 27th), they are posting up new song, 'Welcome, in the night', and you can get your hands on it for absolutely nothing. Just head on over to their Myspace on Monday and you'll find details on how to get your grubby little mitts on a copy. The band also have a couple of gigs lined up this week, on Friday night they'll be at The HAC in Irvine, followed by a headlining showing at Stereo in Glasgow on the Saturday, with support from Male Pattern Band.
As a wee teaser, you can stream 'Welcome, in the night' below...

The Scottish Enlightenment officially release their 'Little Sleep' EP tomorrow, although it actually went on sale yesterday. You can have a wee listen to it below, personally I think it's superb, it might not be as immediate as their last EP, trust me it relly grows on you. The bands debut album, ‘St. Thomas’ is set to follow in November, personally I can't wait to hear it.

Now a days my Sunday afternoons are filled with walks in the park and meeting other friends with babies. If they weren't taken up by these things then I'd be spending this afternoon down at Stereo checking out the latest Hazy Recollections gig. Running from 2pm through till 6, their usual host Findlay Napier has a whole host of bands from the local folk and indie scene. Featuring, Jo Mango Damon Valentine Calum MacCrimmon's- Mans Ruin Findlay Napier and the Bar Room Mountaineers ... and a very special guest (word on the street is that it's Roddy Hart)….. Tickets are £7 or £5 concession, it certainly beats pushing a pram round the park ;)

Tonight (26th) at the Flying Duck, Slow Club returns with it's very own mini festival, featuring music and films. If you fancy an ambient Sunday night then head along to the Duck's kitchen bar, where you will be treated to the following live acts with a backdrop of avant-garde movies;

LOWLAND HILLS (Joe Quimby and Jer Reid)
SMACKVANNOMA (playing to his own films)
More details can be found here.

Lastly, here's a cracking wee video from those lovely Mitchell Museum boys....
