Flying the flag for Scotland: A year of MAP (2008-09)

You’re probably aware by now that we started this thing called the Music Alliance Pact. The Pop Cop’s part of the deal is to choose a Scottish song to share with the rest of the world on the 15th of every month, and to celebrate MAP’s 1st birthday (IKEA vouchers would be great, thanks) we’ve decided to compile our 12 selections to date in a single album for you to download for free.

I know what you’re thinking – that’s ‘The Best Scottish Album in the World… Ever!’ Unfortunately, that record already exists so you’re going to have to make do with the less snappily-titled ‘Music Alliance Pact – Scotland 2008-09′. Alas, our version doesn’t contain Donald, Where’s Yer Troosers but it does look like this:

01 Roddy Hart – Dead Of The Night
02 Beerjacket – Drum
03 Dotjr – More Than You Know
04 Evan Crichton – Holiday Time
05 Broken Records – Nearly Home
06 We Were Promised Jetpacks – Ships With Holes Will Sink
07 There Will Be Fireworks – Foreign Thoughts
08 Boycotts – Beat On The Dancefloor
09 The Seventeenth Century – Traffic
10 Maple Leaves – Easy Speak
11 My Cousin I Bid You Farewell – What We Are Eating Tonight
12 The Xcerts – Crisis In The Slow Lane

You can download the album via MediaFire or snag an individual track by right-clicking and saving any of the song links below:
