Toadcast #279 - The Yawns Toad Session

Video – Vimeo – YouTube Photos – Flickr Session tracks – zip download (right click – save as) Interview podcast – mp3 – iTunes – Mixcloud (playlist at bottom of page) This session was recorded back in March, so once again I find myself apologising to the band for taking so long over it. I blame Beer vs. Records, Sparrow and the Workshop and the Pale Imitation Festival for taking such […]

Toadcast #272 - Charles Latham Toad Session

Video – Vimeo – YouTube Photos – Flickr Session tracks – zip download (right click – save as) Interview podcast – mp3 – iTunes – Mixcloud (playlist at bottom of page) Charles Latham has been something of a legend in Edinburgh ever since his song Hard On became something of a staple in the Withered Hand live set, and also occasionally appeared when other bands, like our own Meursault for […]

Video – Vimeo – YouTube Photos – Flickr Session tracks – zip download (right click – save as) Interview podcast – mp3 – iTunes – Mixcloud This was recorded at Toad Hall in October 2012 with Woodpecker Wooliams, who releases with our friends Robot Elephant Records.

Toadcast #258 - Samantha Crain Toad Session

Video: YouTube – Vimeo Photos: Flickr Audio: zip download (right-click, save as) This is another one of those painfully late Toad Sessions which crashed into the bottleneck created when we recorded five sessions in a very short space space of time at the end of 2011 and then ended up putting most of them on […]

Toadcast #250 - The Black Tambourines Toad Session

Videos: Vimeo – YouTube Photos: Flickr Audio: zip download – mp3s below For the utter shame of it, we actually recorded this Toad Session back in December last year.  I know we can be a little tardy publishing these fuckers, but this has to be something of a record.  I blame the fact that The […]

Toadcast #214 - Kid Canaveral Toad Session

Video: Vimeo – YouTube Photos: Flickr Audio: zip download – right click, save as I am rather embarrassed to confess that we recorded this session absolutely bloody ages ago.  First the Festival, then the mixes, then intervening sessions, and finally just the sheer amount of time these take to edit managed to delay things.  But […]

Toadcast #211 - Josh T. Pearson Toad Session

Video: Vimeo – YouTube Photos: Flickr Audio: zip download: right-click, save as This session was recorded in Glasgow before Josh’s performance at Oran Mor on 22nd November last year.  The first attempt to record a session with him was at Stereo, but recording in a venue really didn’t work out, so this time we decided […]

Toadcast #196 - PAWS Toad Session

Video: Vimeo – YouTube Photos: Flickr Audio: zip file (right-click, save as) The Toad Session I was probably most nervous about recording was Milk Maid, I think.  It was arranged at the last minute, they are a full, four-piece rock band, their profile is riding relatively high at the moment and I’d never really recorded […]

Toadcast #186 - Milk Maid Toad Session

Video: Vimeo – YouTube Photos: Flickr Audio: zip dowload (right click, save as) This session came together in an extremely short space of time, and as such I am extremely pleasantly surprised by how well it turned out – from an audio point of view in particular these are some of my favourite session recordings. […]

Toadcast #183 - Lach Toad Session

Video: Vimeo – YouTube Photos: Flickr – Blueback Hotrod Audio: zip download (right-click, save as). Lach is the man behind the Antihoot, the New York open stage which gave rise to the term and the movement called Antifolk.  People bandy the word about so much these days it’s almost become as nebulous as the term ‘indie’, […]
