This week I’ve been listening to the album Varmints by Anna Meredith. I came across Anna Meredith as she was headlining the opening of this year’s Edinburgh Festival in collaboration with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Winning Scottish album of the year in 2015, Varmints is an album which miraculously combines classical minimalism with electronica, pop, rock and Scottish traditional music. It’s an uplifting and original work that will appeal to a range of tastes.
