Usually I don’t have the ability to listen to podcasts. My kid talks my dang ear off, so putting on headphones and concentrating on someone else is impossible while he’s going, “Mom…mom…mom, mom, mom, mom, mom,” et cetera. But this weekend he and my husband are on a little roadtrip. And noodling ’round the internet, I happen to notice that Matthew of Song, By Toad has collected some great Scottish music of 2007. He calls it, “the Scotchcast.” Clever, no?
And I know that all year, Matthew has been subtly telling me to get my sorry butt in gear and listen to some Scottish music already. So I get a whole hour and a half of quiet to listen to it, and of course it’s awesome, from the sexy “Boy That You Love” to the gorgeous Emma Pollack and crazy Highland folk group The Pendulums. And lo and behold, I hit 1 hr 26 minutes and I get my own personal shoutout! *waves in direction of Scotland* So if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to put on some plaid and rock out to Sons & Daughters. Love that intro to “Gilt Complex.” *headbangs*
