“GLASGOW—Northern Blues, the melancholy sound of a bingo hostess's voice broadcast to the street. A slice of life, this vinyl single depicts three minutes of Bingo hostess Angela McCulloch's 20-hour working week, calling out colors and numbers with exceptional clarity and the inherent beat that she has developed on the job. Side two, Big Buck$ Solo, plays the sounds of the Big Buck$ slot machine, a Japanese-made, Vegas-style classic that randomly composes its pre-recorded sounds as long as it is fed money. This particular tune is the sound of me losing £40 in five minutes.” - Aleksandra Mir
