Saturday Night at The Howff with Rebecca Vasmant, James Lindsay & Maranta

howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.

The Howff is Bella’s Boozer, your virtual lounge for the lockdown. Every weekend we bring you new releases and recommendations for your listening pleasure. This week we bring you new tracks from Maranta, James Lindsay and Rebecca Vasmant.

Miss Dupe is the foot-tapping, synthpop favourite in the Bella office this week. A breezy and joyful three and half minutes by the Leith based duo Maranta. Its out this week on on New Teeth

A brilliant live track for James Lindsay is up next, a single from his new album Torus, out yesterday. Lindsay is a bold composer and instrumentalist who isn’t afraid to merge genres. On this album he successfully fuses traditional folk with rock and jazz in a surprisingly catch batch of tunes. This live remotely-recorded track Cycles is a perfect example of what to expect.

Keeping it jazzy, Jewels of Thought is the first single from Glasgow producer Rebecca Vasmant‘s album With Love. From Glasgow. The track is a tribute to, Pharoah Sanders, and features PaixHarry Weir, Graham CostelIo and Dave Koor. Buy the single, order the album and find out more at Rebeccas Records
