Here are the 100 tunes to come out of Scotland that became my soundtrack for the year.
This Top 100 of 2015 playlist contains everything from the recognised, the little known to the downright obscure. All are treasures in their own way.
It's an eclectic journey through alternative rock, dance, electronica, indie, choral, punk, post-grunge, folk and... well see for yourself.

Part 4 - 25-1

25 The Animal Mothers - P*** On Your Dog.

24 Le Thug - Basketball Land. A kaleidoscope of noise-electropop from the four-piece Glasgow art-pop four-piece,  

23 Django Django - First Light. Infectious surf-pop from the Edinburgh combo that enters the brain & squats

22 Spinning Coin - Magdeline. Glasgow four-piece with a colossal psyche-swamp ingot #Magdeline 

21 Hudson Mohawke - Scud Books. Glasgow producer creates a stunning acid-electro behemoth.

20 Django Django - Shake and Tremble.  An ecstatic garage-surf beast from  the Edinburgh College of Art students who became 2012 Mercury Prize nominees

19 Lional - This Isn't. The Inverness indie-noir four-piece are ones to watch in 2016.

18 Rustie - First Mythz. Where the Glasgow producer creates spellbinding happy hardcore art from dolphins and power synth chords. Think Boards of Canada meets Calvin Harris.  And yes, it is therefore dolphin-friendly tune.

17 The New Fabian Society - Eat Out Of Your Lungs. The Glasgow psyche-punk merchants produce a deliciously dark but insanely catchy guitar malestrom.

16 Art Of The Memory Palace - Waalhaven. An otherworldly hypno-electro treasure from the Dundee cosmic pop duo.

15 Watchfires - Let The Walls Speak Our Names. An anthem with a skyscraping crescendo from the Aberdeen indie-rockers.

14 Lional - Over and Over.

13 Best Girl Athlete - Talk. An enchanting piano & strings jewel (the recorded version) from 16-year-old prodigy Katie Buchan from Aberdeen. 

12 Le Thug - Losing Song.

11 Lional - Season of Salt.  Inverness indie-noir band + chiming guitars + irresistible melody = epic debut single.

10 Le Thug - FC. Hypnotic drone-pop from Clio Alexandra MacLellan, Dann McColgan and Michael Gilfedder.

9 Mairearad Green - Tanera Talisman​. Could be the mother of This Mortal Coil's Song To The Siren.  

8 I Am David Laing - Hoover Boxes. Acoustic yet still a widescreen & seductive classic sounding song from the Gourock singer-songwriter.

7 The New Fabian Society - Chains. The Glasgow psyche-punk combo erupt on a charmingly corrosive mantra.  

6 C Duncan - Novices. A heavenly harmonic incantation with nods to The Carpenters from the 2015 Mercury Music Prize nominee. The Glasgow bedroom musician should have won it.

5 Django Django - Reflections. A great thumping serene aural smile of a song. They even bring the saxophone back.

4 December 91 - Woman in a Man's Body. The Glasgow-based freak-folksters rip out the killer riffs to make alienation sound thrilling.

3 C Duncan - Say. A beautifully desolate dream-pop classic with nods (and only nods) to legendary art rockers Roxy Music and maybe even 80s synth-pop combo China Crisis.  

2 Young Fathers - Rain Or Shine. 2014 Mercury winners YoungFathers are at their cross-cultural best on this soul-inflected tribal hip hop gem underpinned by an engaging keyboard loop sounding like a maniacal carousel ride sample.

C Duncan - Architect. The incomparable title track from what was very easily my album of the year.  Parts appear to nod to classic pop - without the whole ever sounding like anything else on the planet right now.  This was Mr Christopher Duncan's year.
