RM Hubbert Beats Django Django To Scottish Album Of The Year


Django Django The Twilight Sad

RM Hubbert beat out popular Scottish outfits Django Django and The Twilight Sad to take Scottish Album of The Year at a ceremony at Glasgow's Barrowland Ballroom last night. The prize saw Hubbert receive £20,000 and an exclusive piece of artwork created by Emma Reid, of Glasgow School of Art, and Gregor Morrison, of Edinburgh College of Art.

Hubbert said in a statement: "I am shocked and delighted at winning. I never expected it. It is testament to all my collaborators that we won." John Williamson, chair of the judging panel, added: "In the view of the judges, RM Hubbert’s album was the one that encapsulated and engaged the most." The judging panel included an array of musicians, journalists, DJs and visual artists: Douglas Anderson, Christopher Brookmyre, Stewart Cruickshank, Tom Doyle, Douglas Gordon, Kate Molleson, Joe Muggs, Jude Rogers, Tjinder Singh, Rebecca Vasmant and Sue Wilson.

The Twilight Sad, No One Can Ever Know Album Review


With almost a decade's worth of uneasy listening behind them, only the most nonchalantly optimistic soul would augur a drastic change in The Twilight Sad's psyche. Shrouded in mystique with a brooding intensity money can't buy, James Graham and long time cohorts Andy MacFarlane and Mark Devine have always delivered where many pretenders to the throne of miserablist pop failed dramatically. A simple trawl through the band's extensive back catalogue reveals an outfit unafraid of revealing their innermost thoughts, often drowned in a sea of feedback, distortion and ear shredding white noise. In the flesh the results have a tendency to be even more dynamic, Graham's imposing figure quite apt for a band whose earliest lyrical asides involved kids on fire in the bedroom and a rabbit that must die.
