I am sure some of our new music fans and freaks will be heading with the masses to Baldo at the weekend for this year’s T in the Park. So for all concerend and even for those who want to try and catch some highlights from their armchair, here are (in no more than 140 characters) some of the new and emerging acts we think you should give some time to.
Anderson, McGinty, Webster, Ward and Fisher
Formed from Luva Anna, The Law and Magdalen Green. The multi instrumentalists and superb singers are creating a buzz. Find out why at T.
Glasgow lads who will deliver tales of wild nights to an upbeat indie soundtrack. Likely to create a wave of bouncing and drink spillage.

Songwriter Peter Kelly, who we caught recently at Brew at the Bog. Fans of Bright Eyes, Elliot Smith and Nick Drake will be delighted.
Beerjacket on SoundCloud
Edinburgh band with a unique sound and live shows made for bouncing to in a field. Recently supported The Twilight Sad and The Big Pink.
Blank Canvas on SoundCloud
Brown Bear & The Bandits
We caught these guys at goNORTH in Inverness delivering near perfect folk pop foot stomping anthems. EP ‘Truth or Dare’ out now.
Brown Bear & The Bandits on SoundCloud
A Netsounds favourite. Masters at creating electro indie sonic blasts that are simply catchy as hell, which become mesmerising live sets.
Capitals on SoundCloud
Chris Devotion and The Expectations
An act that many a blog and critic hailed as a ‘must see for 2012’. Keepers of classic stirring punk-pop rock n roll.
Hailed by some as ‘the next big thing’. With a superb backing band, glorious harmonies and a presence to match he could well be.
Davey Horne on SoundCloud
Expect an emotive and rousing performance from one of the finest melodic indie pop acts around. Recently heard on Radio 1. Finally.
Reminiscent of early Portishead. They deliver a live set that simply soaks you with their absorbing ‘folktronica’ sound.
Brilliant hook filled punchy syth pop that could well be the soundtrack for a glorious summer weekend regardless of any threatened rain!
Miaoux Miaoux on SoundCloud
Lo-fi electric folk with classic indie pop thrown in make up the sound of the Glasgow based Open Swimmer. Brilliant at Brew At The Bog.

Another regular on our playlists. The Glasgow-based group will charm you with their quirky, joyous and witty folk pop collection.
Randolph’s Leap on SoundCloud
The Machine Room
Edinburgh’s The Machine Room produce brilliant haunting indie synth that will bury inside your head. The indie come down kings.

The Mirror Trap
Four-piece new wave rock band from Dundee. Toured with The View, and opened for Placebo in April of this year.
The Mirror Trap on SoundCloud
Ferocious Glasgow four-piece charged to deliver a strong confident kick in the crotch bursting set. Their album Fault Lines certainly does.
United Fruit on Soundcloud
This gritty, tight, raucous, hollering collective are one of the finest energetic acts we have seen. New EP out now. 2nd year at TITP!
Other acts do exist.
We won’t be there unfortunately, maybe next year!
