Here’s what Scots Whay Hae author, Alistair Braidwood said:
“One of my favourite new discoveries this year was Arran Arctic who released his latest album In My Hands in Spring. I was delighted to find that there was a significant back catalogue to explore. This track is the beautiful Interrupt Me, and if you listen to it on You Tube there is a huge clue as to why this appeals. On the right of the page are over ten recommendations for Mark Kozelek songs. Kozelek is one of my favourite singer/songwriters of all time, but Arran Arctic is my latest flame and deserves such comparisons. This is ruddy gorgeous“
I’m really chuffed that this particular blog has taken such a shine to my work because Scots Whay Hae is one of my favourite blogs, full of intelligent, thoughtful and insightful articles.
They also put together a regular podcast featuring top notch Scottish guests, such as Alan Bissett (whose novel ‘Boyracers’ I’ve just finished and ‘Pack Men’ I’ve just started).
So a huge thank you to Alistair and Scots Whay Hae, I hope I can live up to this humbling honour in 2012!
