Today’s ‘Socially Distant Spins’ is brought to you by Ryan Thain, the lead guitarist in Dundee Indie Rock band, Carousel, the first band ever to play TRNSMT festival! Carousel are key players within the Scottish music scene from headlining the legendary King Tuts, selling out their home town of Dundee and supporting CAST, The Blinders and Baby Strange! The band have a lot of exciting plans over the next year and can’t wait to get back on stage once the world returns back to normality…

Have a read below to find out the lowdown on what five albums Ryan can’t self-isolate including his favourite tracks from each!

I picked these five albums in particular because they’ve all helped me along the way somehow. They’re all so far away from each other but there’s things among each album which relates to the others. Five different genres from five different albums is ideal, keep your ears open.

My top 5/10 changes regularly although there’s some that deserve to stay so in no particular order…
