EDITORS’ NOTES

This Glasgow-based group stayed home to record their third studio album, Unravelling, with producer Paul Savage, who’s worked with almost everyone in Scottish music royalty, from Teenage Fanclub to Franz Ferdinand and Mogwai. The group’s confidence is palpable, leading to multilayered beauty on “Safety in Numbers.” Singer Adam Thompson is completely committed, whether it be the moody and desolate “Disconnecting,” the melodic and poppy “Peaks and Troughs,” or the slowly building grandeur of “A Part of It.” Emotions run hot on the churning “Moral Compass,” where Thompson and Michael Palmer’s guitars build cathedrals of sound.

Favorite Band Ever

I must say that being able to hear a band mature is such a great experience. I have enjoyed WWPJ since their inception and I still cannot believe I was able to take in their show for $20 this past year as I would gladly have paid $100 to take in one of the greatest shows of all time. I wish you guys the best of success and I look forward to your next show stateside. Thank you for the greatest of artistry!

Wow!

These guys are awesome, and the album is as well. This is a little more mellow than what we're used to, but that's not a bad thing. Go see them live too….these guys leave it all on the stage. Fantastic live!

Top to bottom, excellent. Even better in concert. Very under appreciated band.
