After enjoying today's World Cafe session with Frightened Rabbit, you might be craving more great music from Glasgow. Scotland's largest city is known for its industrial nature, its pub culture and, of course, its music scene. (Case in point: Time magazine once compared Glasgow to Detroit in the Motown era.) Celebrate the bands of the Glaswegian musical landscape by taking this playlist of our favorites with you this weekend.
