Three years ago, I walked into a peedie record store in Lerwick, Shetland, called High Level Music (it was up a flight of steps).
The wee lassie behind the counter looked aghast at my question, "What would you recommend for someone who likes Lau and the Peatbog Faeries?"
To her credit, though it must be difficult to cater to such an unfair question, she came up trumps with Murmichan by Shooglenifty. Having listened to a sample in store, we bought it on the spot and still haven't given it to its intended recipient.
They are a Celtic fusion band, but have been variously described as Techno ceilidh, Acid croft and Hypnofolkadelia.
Tonight, Shooglenifty played The Stables in sleepy Milton Keynes.
Man, those guys are awesome.
If, dear reader, you are detecting that old Tense is a little less on edge than normal, it may have a little to do with several pints of Murphy's, but definitely much to do with a cracking evening's entertainment courtesy of six fine musicians.
