Song of the Week #15 – St. Christopher Medal

This is good news. Not only is there an excellent new single due from St. Christopher Medal at the end of the month, but a new album, ‘Hoof’ is being quoted by label Stereogram Recordings.

‘Fallen Angel’ is described as:

Classic Scottish songwriting (TFC, Lloyd Cole, Trashcan Sinatras) and sweeping alt-Americana (GP, Wilco, Okkervil River) filtered through thrilling, melodic guitar and piano – deserts, highways, half-dreamed visions of rock’n’roll heartlands…”

Their last single ‘Wayne Moon Pilot’ was a bit of a classic which really took off with the guitar soloing at the back end of the song. In contrast ‘Fallen Angel’ is a more raucous effort, yet every bit as enjoyable.

As far as I know isn’t related in anyway to the new Chris Brookmyre page-turner of the same title.
