AA07: Double A-Side Records’ First Birthday

AA07 Poster Scan.jpeg

So while there have been rumblings for some time, the rumours are indeed true! Next month we turn one, and are having a wee celebration to mark the occasion. On Saturday the 16th June we bring the party to The Glad Cafe. Joining us we have:

Life Model:

The local (by way of Newcastle) dream pop quartet have been on our radar for quite some time and we are thrilled to have them play as part of our birthday celebrations. Imagine if Best Coast made a Shoegaze album and you might come close to how they sound.

Barbe Rousse

It wouldn’t be a Double A-Side Records party without them. The Edinburgh psychedelic soul four-piece are guaranteed to raise a smile and make you boogie on a Saturday night. Since releasing their album last October they’ve been gigging constantly and we cannot wait to welcome them back to Glasgow!


With upcoming dates supporting Sleaford Mods and their debut EP coming out on Monorail Records Hairband definitely are ones to watch. The quintet (made up of pals from other bands) combine harmonies and jangly guitars to create something really special. Not to be missed.

As always there will be a charity raffle. All the proceeds are going towards Scottish Mental Health Association (SMAH). And of course it wouldn’t be a birthday party without a cake. So please join us!

£5 Advance / £7 On the Door



Announcing AA06: Easter Jamboree

Now that the dust is starting to settle on the King Gizzard release (still a few left…) we thought it was time to host another gig, and this one is going to be an absolute belter!

On Saturday the 31st March, we’re hosting a little Easter get together in Glasgow’s Old Hairdressers. Joining us we have:

Book Group: The Edinburgh fuzzy quartet will be bringing their own brand of hook filled guitar pop. Expect megaphones.

Home Economics: Our very own shambolic pop outfit,. As per usual, there will be chat about The Simpsons and jangly guitars with some new songs added (maybe…)

Caitlin Buchanan: We were gutted that Caitlin couldn’t make our Office Festive Party due to illness so we invited her to play this one. Caitlin is a very talented singer-songwriter who has been making waves on the local scene recently and we are thrilled to have her play for us.

All this along with tunes spinning until late with our good friend Andy K’s Thoroughly Excellent Indie Disco!

What more could you ask for on a Saturday Night? Well, we’ll be having a raffle for Refuweegee too.

Advance tickets are available now for £5 and will be £6 on the door, see you there! xo

AA04: Office Festive Party

We wanted to have one last hoorah before the year was out so let’s consider this our “Hootenany.” Anyway, we have decided to do something a little different for this one, but first let’s introduce the acts:

Robin Adams

A local staple who we are thrilled to welcome this December. Adams has a voice that could sooth any soul. Having caught the main man a few times live we can guarantee you are in for a treat.

Mighty Finch

Former Brave Young Red frontman James Foley is one of the most talented songwriters we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. After a wee a break from music he is back with a new project, keeping things stripped back to just voice and guitar. Not to be missed!

Caitlin Buchanan

Caitlin Buchanan is a solo singer who describes herself as “a cross between Angel Olsen, Laura Marling and Kate Bush.” Upon listening we could instantly hear these influences ring through. Wistful vocals over finely strummed acoustic make for a wonderful combination.

Where is this wonderful event taking place? Well, it’s a secret! To find out more, you need to RSVP at the following link:

Tickets are very limited!

We’re not charging any “door tax” for this one but will be taking donations to split between all the acts afterwards. There will also be a wee raffle with proceeds going to the local food bank.

Okay… fuck it!

*UPDATE* We’re going for this, still taking pre-orders!

I (Angus) lost a lot of sleep over this but finally said to myself “why not?”. This seems too good to pass up.


King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have just announced the release of their new album POLYGONDWANALAND. It is out Friday and they’re doing a pretty interesting experiment. They are giving everyone the “means of production” for it. All the details are over on their facebook.

We love King Gizzard here at Double A-Side HQ (Barbe Rousse is arguably influenced by them) so we’ve decided to go for it. However, to do so we need your help…

We care about our vinyl (I’m sure those who’ve bought a Barbe Rousse album can attest to that!) so decided to make this run as nice as we can. We are aiming to press it to yellow/purple split colour vinyl as those are our favourite colours here at Double A-Side!

What we are asking is for you to help us crowdfund this release through pre-orders. Any money we make goes back into funding more gigs and releases so we think it’s a pretty sweet deal!

If we don’t reach our target of 100 pre-orders then we PROMISE to return everyone’s money.

There are, of course, options.

To thank you for your generosity, we are also offering funders the chance to get their name printed at the back of the LP’s artwork for just a few extra pounds. Check out the bandcamp link below to see your options!


So please tell your friends, and let’s make a record happen! xo

Happy Barbe Rousse Day Everyone!

So today’s the day folks! Barbe Rousse‘s Misc. Muses is finally out!


You can listen/purchase it digitally over on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Tidal, and all those sorts of thing! Additionally, a copy of the LP is available to buy on Bandcamp.

You can also find it in the racks of the following record shops across Scotland:

Love Music Glasgow
Monorail Music
LP Records

Assai Records
Coda Music
Voxbox Music
Underground Solu’shn

Mo’Fidelity Records – Montrose
Big Sparra Vinyl – Ayr

Go show them some love to save them going the same way as the dinosaurs!

Tickets & bundles are still available for the launch party tomorrow night until later this evening. Don’t worry too much though! You can still get a ticket on the door! It’s going to be a cracker so don’t miss out xo

Announcement(s) Time!


Okay folks, as you already know we have the Barbe Rousse album coming out on October 20th. It’s up for pre-order now!

What we’re here to talk about today is the album launch!

In Glasgow’s 13th Note on Saturday the 21st October, we bring the party!
On the bill alongside Barbe Rousse will be:

The Tropicanas

The Livi boys return with their own brand of jangly dream pop.
A brilliant act, not to be missed!


The local quintet promise “harmonious, textured, dreamy, romantic, psychedelic rock.” Expect harmony driven reverby jams, “Ooh baby!”

There will also be some spoken word from the sleeve designer Marky P. and the girls from Drugstore Glamour will be spinning some tunes too! And don’t forget the usual Double A-Side charity raffle! What a treat!

See you there! xo

AA02 is this week!


This week on Wednesday night, we are having another little party (I know school night again etc. but who ever listened to these things anyway…) We have an exciting line-up of guitar-pop talent from the central belt filling Broadcast’s basement. On the bill we have:

Star Rover


Self-described as “Edinburgh’s premier guitar-pop POWER-trio.” The band have been making quite a stir in their hometown and beyond. What’s more, they have an album coming out on October 6th on Edinburgh’s City of Glass. Check out the debut single taken from it below.

Home Economics

Double A-Side Record’s own Home Economics are once again bringing you their own brand of “shambolic pop” and silly 90s TV references.

The Tropicanas


Livingston’s dream-poppers bring to the table a dose of psychedelic reverb-y sounds. Fill your boots!

“How much for all this?” I hear you ask. The measly sum of three pounds is all we are asking for! There will be the obligatory Double A-Side Records Raffle and programmes for sale, too. The profits from both are all going to Cancer Research.

See you there and tell your pals! xo
