Kid Canaveral have revealed another new track from their forthcoming third album Faulty Inner Dialogue, which will be released by Lost Map Records on July 29, 2016 on vinyl, CD and as a digital download. ‘Tragic Satellite’ is the second song to be aired from the much anticipated follow-up to their Scottish Album of the Year longlisted second album 2013’s Now That You Are A Dancer, after the video for ‘First We Take Dumbarton’ was premiered by The Skinny in May and hailed as Single of the Month by Clash magazine and “a ready-made radio hit” by The List.

Now Spring has sprung, Pictish has emerged with a new clutch of songs, his most confident and accomplished sounding yet.

Here at Lost Map people are always complimenting us on our tight little packages, and we haven't really known what they've meant by that until now that we've put together Resort, the debut compilation album by Tuff Love, which is surely the definition of a tight little package.
