balloonman21 Got their recent album, loved them in concert in London in December so had to get this. Niteworks are unique and their music is beautiful. Traditional and modern music, gaelic and english stirred up with real spirit.

isleofmann 'Our children are born for emigration...' as an islander and a parent I understand the seeming inevitability... Favorite track: Somhairle.

douglashossack Beautiful tunes skillfully crafted and underpinned by more than a strong nod to Scottish/Gaelic tradition. Thoughtful and thought provoking. Favorite track: Somhairle.

Steven I happened upon this album about 24 hours ago, and excepting the ~7 hours I slept, I've had this album playing on repeat for the entire time.

Incredible tunes. There's a great balance of chill and energetic vibes throughout the album, and the overall flow from start to finish was really well designed. Kudos to Niteworks on this fantastic piece of art. I can't wait to hear more from them. Favorite track: Maraiche feat. Kathleen MacInnes.

Ian Martyn I've been sustaining myself off of the Niteworks EP for way too long, so I was very excited to see that they had released their new album.

WOW! This is really amazing! It takes everything that was fantastic about the EP and adds a bunch of amazing guest vocalists. Seriously, this is some of the most groovy, dance-able music I've ever heard! Favorite track: Taobh Abhainn feat. Alasdair Whyte.
