Paolo Nutini’s “Candy”

Two years ago, when I was traveling in Scotland, I asked a guy working at a record store what local bands he could recommend. I had heard of a few, but had hoped he might tell me about a new band I might never hear of outside the country.

The result was hit and miss, he got me into The Fratellis, who I had heard in the iPod ad but hadn’t listened to otherwise, and he got me into Paolo Nutini and their CD, These Streets.
