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.
