Come On Gang!
‘Indie power-trio from Edinburgh, whose drummer Sarah Tanat-Jones provides surprisingly folksy vocals. www.myspace.com/comeongangmusic

Copy Haho
Louche young indie-rockers from Stonehaven (just outside Aberdeen) in the Sonic Youth tradition. www.myspace.com/copyhaho

Visually impressive electro-rockers, with a bit of a goth edge, it must be said. www.myspace.com/fangsfangsfangs

Findo Gask
Hard to categorise but brilliant electro-pop from Glasgow, whose sound is stuck somewhere between 1984 and the future. www.myspace.com/findogaskuk

Hudson Mohawke
A diverse and eclectic collision of hip hop and electronica. www.myspace.com/hudsonmo

Manda Rin
Alias Amanda MacKinnon, sometime frontwoman of Glasgow heroes Bis and electro-pop idolette. www.myspace.com/musicmandarin

Mitchell Museum
A very new Glaswegian chamber-pop outfit who are already attracting great praise. www.myspace.com/mitchellmuseum

Pearl and the Puppets
Plaintive singer-songwriting that’s quite sweet, if KT Tunstall and Amy Macdonald are your sugary cups of tea. www.myspace.com/pearlandthepuppets

Remember Remember
A solo series of inventive sounds from Graeme Ronald. www.myspace.com/rememberremember

The same as, but different, to Hudson Mohawke, if you see what we mean; an electronic hip hopper. www.myspace.com/rustiebeetz

The Xcerts
A thrillingly intelligent combination of emo and rock from Aberdeen, not unlike a younger Biffy Clyro. www.myspace.com/thexcerts

Tommy Reilly
The winner of Channel 4’s Orange Unsigned contest and already a top twenty singles chart artist. www.myspace.com/tommyreillymusic

We Were Promised Jetpacks
Addictive indie-pop from this Fat Cat-signed Glasgow bunch. www.myspace.com/wewerepromisedjetpacks

Zoey Van Goey
A typically quirky Glasgow indie group and a product of the city’s post-Belle and Sebastian scene. www.myspace.com/zoeyvangoey
