Admiral Fallow, a Scottish band, sees the release of their second album, Tree Bursts in Snow, next week.

I've been a Fallow fan since they called themselves "The Brother Louis Collective," and I love their first album, Boots Met My Face. (The side-project album by The Moth & The Mirror, Honestly, This World, is excellent, too.)

The BBC's review makes a favorable comparison to Elbow: "the Glaswegian quintet are the sceneís most thoughtful brand of emo-scaping, more concerned with simmering space and dynamics than outright brow-beating. The opening title(ish)-track surges and slow-burns like prime Elbow; Guy Garvey is a Fallow fan, and thereís indeed something Garvey-like about singer-guitarist Louis Abbott. But itís still smaller-scale, tense, and all the better for its restraint."

The whole album can be heard here. And this is the video of "The Paper Trench":



Good stuff, if you like Scottish indie. Smile
