Boomkat Product Review:
**Edition of 250** Heather Leigh strangles the fxxk out of a lucky pedal steel guitar in this shocking plate for Golden Lab Records. Recorded in mono direct to tape and mastered right at the biting point, 'Nightingale' is a viciously intense example of Heather's roving explorations of her guitar's most guttural voice and vocabulary. Sprawled, shriekin' and hair-pulling across both sides are the results of a locked-in performance sustaining petrifying levels of piercing high frequencies before tilting into neck-wrenching blues and subsequently bustin' a belly of blow-out drone entrails and one-leg-on-the-amp showomanship on the flipside. Its release sadly coincides with the closure of Volcanic Tongue, the cult Glasgow record shop co-run by Heather with David Keenan, but also promises the start of a new run of material from Heather, which, if this is anything go by, should be well worth the attention of all long hairs and self-certified freaks.
