Kid Canaveral released their debut album Shouting At Wildlife in 2010, when it was hailed as BBC Introducing... In Scotland’s Album of the Month on BBC Radio 1 and “a Scottish pop classic” by The Herald.

 

Its follow-up Now That You Are A Dancer arrived in 2013 and earned such plaudits as “a brilliant indie-rockalbum” (The List), “a shining, glowing example of the pure power that pop music can possess” (GoldFlakePaint) and eventually a nomination for the Scottish Album of the Year Award. Both albums are currently available to buy on Lost Map Records.

Kid Canaveral have toured extensively around the UK, Europe and the US and played festivals including SXSW,

T in the Park, Indietracks, Green Man, Belladrum, Cloudspotting, Long Division, Brew at the Bog and LostMap’s Howlin’ Fling. .

 

The band's latest record Faulty Inner Dialogue was released on Lost Map Records on 29 July 2016. "Faulty Inner Dialogue sees our heroes straightened out and smartened up, employing impressive production standards and lyrical duplicity on an album that works equally well as a sociable, fun record as it does as a vehicle to discuss alienation and internal turmoil"(★★★★ The List)

 

Their annual Christmas Baubles one-day mini-festival has become an Edinburgh institution every December since 2010, gathering the great and good of the Scottish independent music scene for a sold-out celebratory end-of-year blow-out that has featured such esteemed special guests as Edwyn Collins, Ibibio Sound Machine, Malcolm Middleton, Kathryn Joseph and many more.
