Scotland's Best Kept Secret....


Hard to believe that it is two years since the last album release from Scotland's best kept secret, Trashcan Sinatras. Quite why Trashcan Sinatras are not a household name is simply beyond comprehension. Their albums should be available in every store, their songs played on every radio station, their back catalogue discovered and rediscovered by music fans of all ages. Maybe one day....

Beautifully crafted pieces of pure pop magic is a description I like when it comes to the music of Irvine's finest. They do take a while between albums, but when they do emerge with another collection it's always worth the wait. Perfect music for a Sunday afternoon sitting outside on the patio.

There's not much more that I can add to the acclaim already heaped upon this band. It's such a pity that more people are not aware of the strength of the songwriting and gorgeous melodies that they have been releasing for over 20 years now.

In The Music was, for me, easily the best album of 2009. It's a beautiful, melancholy treasure of an album with genuine heart and gorgeous melodies throughout that is the perfect album for a warm summer's day and as there appears to be some sun in the sky in the West Of Scotland today this seems to be the perfect day for a perfect album....
