The Dealer

Looking Out For Number One
Millsyeck  (facebook)   @Millsyeck 
Old-school Rock-tastic blast from EP 'Once Clean Twice Dirty'. Seen them play various gigs indoors + out, powerful sound. Alex has a nice line in banter, gets the audience involved.

Don't Want To Hear It
New Town Triptych  (facebook)   @N_T_Triptych 
Warm acoustic sound, hummable songs, they do a wonderful version of wagon wheel. Bought this after hearing them featured on Kowalskiy.

Skinny Love

New acoustic duo from Dundee. This track caught my ear the first time I heard it, only later I realised it was a Bon Iver song.

Haunting tune stayed with me since hearing a lot about Bon Iver on music blogs earlier in the year.

Cryin' Back To Me

Catchy blues I first heard featured by Ted on Cloud Sounds earlier in the year - grabbed my attention so I bought a CD off them.

Can You Keep A Secret?
Beautiful By Design  (facebook
Now-defunct pop band from Dundee/Fife, they produced a bunch of great tunes in their short life. Saw them play a few times + shot some footage.

Love Is Teasin'
Wounded Knee  (facebook
Heard this on Edinburgh Man, and probably elsewhere too... was still singing it to myself days later, good sign! Did some clicking around Drew's projects, lots of interesting stuff there, a mix of old songs and new technology.
