The festive period is a time for giving and thankfully the good folks at Fence Records are in a generous mood.
The Scottish institution has enjoyed a bumper year, releasing material from old friends and complete newcomers. Selected highlights include a new album from Irish troubadour Seamus Fogarty and 'Joined Sometimes Unjoined' - the new album from London via Bristol songbird Rozi Plain.
Alongside this, Fence have stamped their approval on a number of EPs. Edinburgh's Withered Hand released 'Heart Heart' while elsewhere Barbarossa returned with 'Butterfly Plague'. As if that wasn't enough, The Pictish Trail signalled his return with 'The Summer Is Empty Of Idiots' ahead of his new album 'Secret Soundz Vol. 2'.
