NME It is an elegant and, quite frankly, utterly beautiful record. 8/10

BBC Music - Far from being removed or pretentious, these are songs that pierce the centre of the hearts that theyve sprung from.

MusicOMH Beautifully written and performed and deserves to be up there with this years best. 4/5

Jamie, Rory Dave, Andy, Arne Ian and Gill formed Broken Records in December 2006 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Using a range of instruments including guitars, bass, violin, cello, accordion, mandolin, piano, trumpet, glockenspiel and drums, they create a sound combining traditional European folk with modern Scottish alternative music.

Their 2007 self released debut EP which was sold at shows created a wider interest in the band in the music industry and across the nation. Drowned in Sound said of the release, This is magical, engrossing and wholly enveloping, genuinely and excitingly bursting with commercial potential. From beginning to end, this self-titled EP delights and amazes.

The band moved into 2008 with a new focus, and have already completed a number of much admired gigs including supports slots with The Futureheads, Editors, Sons & Daughters & The Twilight Sad. They also completed a Maida Vale session for National Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), released the acclaimed If the News Makes You Sad Dont Watch it limited edition 7? single with Young Turks and gained national media attention at The Great Escape festival.

With spot trips to Dublin & Amsterdam under their belt this year, the band will are expanding their live experience throughout the festival period. Their next limited edition 7? single, Slow Parade on the Fandango label, remains hotly anticipated. Plans are afoot to record an album in the latter half of the year whilst they continue to plot a course through the ever-changing music business environment.

I believe the wonderful Rob St John of eagleowl is also opening up these shows with a solo set. He is very excellent.

What a damn fine bill of music for your ears.
