  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    A copy of the eponymous debut Broken Chanter LP on delicious vinyl.

    A stunning, stately debut - The Skinny

    Poignant electro-futurist folk [where] one of the elements which resonates most clearly throughout...is MacGregor’s continuing abilitywith a shining pop chorus. - The Scotsman

    Pairing catchy choruses and post-pop grooves, with melancholic, self-deprecating lyrics, MacGregor offers up a tasty slice of Scottish indie avant-pop, shot through with streams of folk and electronica - The List

    As with allthesongs here, MacGregor cutsto theheart with thetiniest lyrical details. Like slowstrobe flashes throwing light on the past, we see snatches of stories symbolised in ordinary objects and overheard conversations, leaving usto fill in the missing pieces- Gold Flake Paint

    From insistent lead single 'Wholesale' through a heavenlycollaboration with Gaelicstar Kim Carnie to closing secular hymnal 'Free Psalm', the record glides and soars - a bird's eye view of frosted landscapes and snowyhills- The National

    Record of Note (w/b 3 Sept 2019) – Roddy Hart Show, BBC Radio Scotland
    Top 25 Artiststo Watch in 2019 – Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland
