Some things just sound more ‘right’ to me than others. For example, 9 times out of 10 I’ll take the act from the UK over any of their American counterparts. I can’t help it—I’m just wired that way and prefer the intangibles that UK acts possess. I can’t see it, I can’t touch it—but somehow I can HEAR it which makes all the difference to me.
I was surprised some time back upon connecting the dots to realize that quite a few of my favorite bands are from the land of kilts and haggis—Scotland. So, the last 5 of the ‘20 Perfect Tracks’ for this week form a certifiable Scottish ...brogues gallery. (Yea...sorry.)
