Whilst I await the new arrival to my family sometime in the following few weeks, this week we welcome the arrival of St.Thomas to not only your ears but also to Glasgow. St.Thomas is the brand new long player from subterranean-ecclesiastical-rockers The Scottish Enlightenment. We’re pretty excited here at Elba about it’s pending release, it’s been a long-time coming and they have teased us plenty, what with giving away some free tracks in 2009 and this year the release of 3 EP’s to whet our appetite. We are almost ready to burst.
We don’t have to tell you how good it is really, but we will anyway. It’s REALLY good. There we said it, we’re sold on it, in our general understated kind of way.
The album will be released tomorrow and you can get your mitts on copies through the Armellodie Records store and very possibly some other decent outlets. Alternatively, if you have the willpower of a saint, you could try waiting until Thursday to pick up a copy at the Glasgow leg of their album launch at the 13th Note. This show comes highly recommended this week at Elba. Not only have we been waiting since April to see The Scottish Enlightenment, when they played for us at The Liquid Ship, but they are also joined on the night by Deathpodal, whose EP ‘Exu__Wow ‘ has been enjoyed immensely by us, and Le Reno Amps who it is no secret that we have a massive crush on, what’s not to love! So, if it’s an evening of post-rock, epic sounds and generic cialis 100mg overindulgent guitar solos (Nero, I’m looking at you!) that you are after then we’ll see you at the note!
