Review: Hunger Like Starlings by Edwin Morgan Trust

Poetry from the Edwin Morgan Trust’s Scotland-Hungary translation workshop, Hunger Like Starlings feels like an embodiment of an afternoon concerning Edwin Morgan's connection with Budapest and the translations that he did for Hungarian writers. In conjunction with the Edwin Morgan Trust, Tapsalteerie have published a pamphlet that demonstrates a connection between Scottish and Hungarian poets and their efforts in the translation process of each other's work.

The Vegan Leather: Gloaming is a bit of a shift in sound for us since releasing our album last year

The Vegan Leather return after a landmark 2019 that saw them release their long-awaited debut album Poor Girls / Broken Boys. The album attracted widespread critical acclaim and enthusiastic support from the likes of Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos and BBC Radio One's Jack Saunders and led to the band recording a live session for BBC Radio 1 at their Maida Vale studios. Shortly after the album’s release, The Vegan Leather won Best Live Act at the 2019 Scottish Alternative Music Awards and now they have a new single, Gloaming out. The Fountain caught up with vocalist Marie Collins about the new music and what we can expect from them in the coming months.
