GVZER I hold St. Thomas as one of the most important and most underated albums of the last decade. Such an intimate yet grande album. When I found out that a follow-up was announced, I was beyond ecstatic. And the day came and I listened to 'Potato Flower'. I was speechless! Such a beautiful evolution. 'Potato Flower' hits you with a wall of slow riffs and emotion. Guitar work that makes me recall bands like Pavement, Bedhead, Low and early The National. Fortunately, what has stayed consistent were the powerful and personal lyrics. With the tragic loss of Scott Hutchinson, it warms my heart to know we still Scottish talent such as James Graham and David Moyes. This album is brilliant. And clearly one of the best albums of 2018.

about

Armellodie Records is proud to present "Potato Flower", the second album from Scotland’s most subterranean, ecclesiastical rock band, The Scottish Enlightenment.

"Potato Flower" is an honest record, mined from the seams of joy and
pain that are threaded through the monolithic repetition of ordinary life. And it’s taken a while.

During the 8 years since St Thomas, some people have died and some people have been born. Nobody lives in the same place anymore. A huge chunk of life has elapsed, ordinary life with the standard dramas, love, fear, grief, hope, all the beauty and ugliness draped over jobs, laundry, bills, breakfast, lunch and tea. "Potato Flower" refuses to pretend that the important things are found anywhere else.
