Clash selects Cokefloat! as a contender for Scottish Album of the Year
The Scottish Album of the Year award (SAY) is in its second year and to celebrate the announcement of the longlist (which will take place in 3 days), Clash have chosen their contenders, including FatCat's own PAWS, and their critically acclaimed debut, Cokefloat! Clash had this to say of the record:
"Glasgow-based PAWS is Joshua, Matthew and Philip, and the music they make is the sort that’s of instant-win appeal if you’re a listener raised on the raucous yet melodic rock of Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement. It mightn’t be the most original set to have come out of Scotland lately, but there’s no denying this trio’s infectious energy. A great live band, PAWS contributed a tour diary to Clash earlier this year – read it here."
In another FatCat connection: last year's winners, Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells, are featured with The Twilight Sad on one of FatCat's Record Store Day 2013 releases. You can read the rest of Clash's selections, here, and get involved by tweeting them your picks for the longlist.
