‘This Must Mean Something Awful’ is the latest release from Edinburgh-based songwriter Leo Bargery; once more under the guise of Mt. Doubt. This latest, short collection of songs was written and recorded in the Edinburgh flat shared by Bargery and Mt. Doubt collaborator, J. Callaghan, who both produced and performed on TMMSA.

Despite the EP’s bedroom aesthetic, the DIY airiness and lo-fi sound lend themselves to the raw and exposed nature of Bargery’s songwriting here, cementing this latest offering as their most assured to date.

Lyrically the EP treads a familiarly bleak path, whether Bargery is running away to the Adriatic coast with fantasies of becoming Henry Miller or ruminating on relationships over bowls of miso soup the songs are deeply personal and expressive. Starting life at the beginning of 2015, Mt. Doubt is the project of Edinburgh-based musician Leo Bargery. Releases have gained praise from The Herald, The National, and many blog. Tipped as one of Vic Galloway’s ’25 Scottish Artists to Watch

Released October 20th, 2018

The record’s middle section tackles poignant universal issues such as apathy, anxiety, and a loss of faith, making it’s way through a wide variety of musical textures: from delicate arpeggios, to dynamic rhythms, to glacial hymn-like vocal climbs.
