Class Of 2010: Molly Wagger

You know, you could do much worse than keep an eye on Edinburgh if you're at all keen on folk with an almighty twist. Following Broken Records, Meursault and Withered Hand, Molly Wagger have at heart a straight talking, all feeling traditional air, but offset all that with a full sonic appreciation of aerated electronic noisescapes carefully built round those woodily widescreen folk songs, stealthily hypnotic loops built up around Charlie Denholm's insistent while laid back vocals. It seems, going on from when we first heard their work, that more of the computer aided cut-up side is coming out in them - they're signed to Tirk, once home to Fujiya & Miyagi and Chaz Jankel - but there's still very much a heart and soul amid the machine turned atmospherics. They say an album, or at least an EP, is being mixed.
