This has been a big week for the United Kingdom. The people of Scotland voted in a historic referendum to decide whether or not they wanted to become an independent country. As you no doubt heard about in the wider media, the vote was split 55/45 in favour of remaining in the Union with the other home nations.

This is an exclusive track off Scottish quintet Sucioperro’s new album Fused. The song is called ‘Pig Ravens’ and it’s a gnarled fuzzbox of dirge telling a dark and desperate story in 130 seconds. You’ll feel sad when it finishes because you’ll want to hear another song.
