‘Winter Still’, the debut from Glasgow-based act Surface Cat, is now available to download.

The self-released 11 tracks are the work of one J Mark Percival and the first recordings in a couple of decades from the musician, who also works as a music lecturer, although he will also be known to many as the former host of BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Electronica’ radio show.

It’s available to stream as well as download via Bandcamp, and a streamed gig is planned. Surface Cat shows have previously taken place in Turku, Plzen, and Manila, and a Glasgow gig will involve locally-based musicians taking on the guitar and bass parts on what is an entirely self-produced and self-performed recording, via Garageband.

The live event will tie in with a cassette release of the album, featuring bonus tracks, which like the album, will be mastered by Paul Savage at Chem19.
