Scot Rocks

Why the hiatus, you ask? A couple of weekends ago I got out of London and embarked on an ambitious road trip around southern and central Scotland. Although I've been to Scotland (and Edinburgh) a few times already the scenery, people, and culture of this truly amazing country never cease to amaze me. And for a small place (under 80,000 square kilometres and just over 5 million people) it sure cranks out a ton of good music.
Here are some of the songs that made up my Scotland Summer Soundtrack while speeding through the idyllic countryside, drinking pints in village pubs, exploring abandoned castles and taking in the Edinburgh festival:

Mylo - Otto's Journey
Beta Band - Needles in My Eyes
Mogwai - Friend of the Night
Camera Obscura - Country Mile

I love Country Mile, from the wonderful Camera Obscura. Well worth listening to their latest album, if you haven't got round to it.

Ditto on the Camera Obscura praise. Great album.
