Keeping It Peel - Aereogramme

I was very late to the party with this band. In fact, by the time I got into Aereogramme they were just about to call it a day. My first Aereogramme gig was their last, and I was left with a feeling of regret that I hadn't caught on sooner.
Delving into their back catalogue from there threw up more and more reasons to fall in love with the band, and in a short time I went from being ambivalent to fully converted.
Aereogramme's Craig B and Iain Cook are back making music together now after some time apart as The Unwinding Hours. Their debut album released earlier this year must be a strong competitor for the imminent Album of the Year polls, and their gig a little over a week ago in Glasgow's Oran Mor was nothing short of stunning.

Aereogramme recorded a couple of Peel Sessions, but I only have one handy, you can find that below.
They were in 2004's Festive Fifty twice, with Dreams and Bridges at #4 and The Unravelling at #15.
