As season five of The Great British Bake Off, is well under way, and our favourites are starting to shine, we’re ready to get creative in the kitchen.

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival kicked off last week which hosts an array of entertainment including music, comedy, theatre and dance. This year the Edinburgh Fringe Festival runs for a period of 25 days (1st August until the 25th) in which the population of Edinburgh doubles with people all over the word visiting to become a part of it all.  In keeping with the start of the festival and the celebration of one of the largest arts festivals in the world we have put together a playlist on Pure Connect of famous Scottish music artists in a host of genres. From indie rock from the likes of Franz Ferdinand and The Fratellis, electronic with Chvrches and Calvin Harris or if you’re feeling extra cultural give Celtic rock band Runrig a listen.

Today, we want to take this opportunity to introduce our new gig reviewer, Megahn Keene. Once a month Megahn will take you on a musical journey, bringing you the latest gig reviews, while introducing you to a world of new music and up and coming artists.

For a Saturday night, Sound Control was pretty dead when I arrived. The only people in the venue are either in bands, working for bands or friends of the bands. But supporting act, Forty Four Hours don’t seem to notice, or care that there’s hardly anyone watching. They play with so much heart that it’s impossible not to be won over. Their catchy bass lines and clean harmonies go even further to draw you in. The frontman plays the crowd like he’s playing an arena, going so far as to get the whole crowd (all 30 of us) clapping along.
