A copy of the eponymous debut Broken Chanter LP on beautifully-presented CD. 

 

A stunning, stately debut - The Skinny

 

Poignant electro-futurist folk [where] one of the elements which resonates most clearly throughout...is MacGregor’s continuing ability with a shining pop chorus. - The Scotsman

 

Pairing catchy choruses and post-pop grooves, with melancholic, self-deprecating lyrics about ageing and resilience, MacGregor offers up a tasty slice of Scottish indie avant-pop, shot through with streams of folk and electronica - The List

 

As with all the songs here, MacGregor cuts to the heart with the tiniest lyrical details. Like slow strobe flashes throwing light on the past, we see snatches of stories symbolised in ordinary objects and overheard conversations, leaving us to fill in the missing pieces - Gold Flake Paint

 

From insistent lead single 'Wholesale', through a heavenly collaboration with Gaelic star Kim Carnie, to closing secular hymnal 'Free Psalm', the record glides and soars - a bird's eye view of frosted landscapes and snowy hills - The National
