Toadcast #255 – Song, by Toad Records 2013

post tag Welcome to 2013, Toadcast listeners.  As is tradition around these parts, we start the year with a podcast of songs we will be releasing this year on Song, by Toad Records, combined with a few we have released quite recently.

There are a few things I didn’t put on here, because it seemed a shame to spill the beans too early – we have a new Rob St. John single coming soon, as well as a new album by The Leg and that collaborative album between Jill from Sparrow and the Workshop, Neil and Pete from Meursault, Rory from Broken Records and Reuben Taylor and Rob St. John – but it didn’t feel right to play anything from those just yet.

What we do have is new stuff from Trips and Falls, stuff from our next split 12″ with Magic Eye, Zed Penguin, Le Thug and Plastic Animals, as well as brand new and hugely exciting label signings Adam Stafford and Sparrow & the Workshop, who we’ll be doing a couple of EPs with as they prepare their new album.

All in all, this is going to be a fucking amazing year for the label, I think, and I am really, really looking forward to it.  Hopefully by the end of this podcast, so will you.

14 witty ripostes to Toadcast #255 – Song, by Toad Records 2013

    Only Live From The Latin Quarter gets the exclusives from The Leg!

  2. avatar

    Yeah, no surprise at all that the label shows a teensy little bit more restraint than the band. THAT’S HOW SHIT LEAKS, MOTHERFUCKERS!

  3. avatar

    I think we can all agree that labels are no fun.

  4. avatar

    I beg to differ, Baggins.

  5. avatar

    What do you know, tadpole?

  6. avatar

    Oh yes I do.

    Legs up!
    Damn Uncle Hit reminds me of early 16horsepower.
    May the happiness be with you in 2013

    I know, right?

    Lots of ace stuff there, well done. Split 12″ tunes sounding particularly ace.

  10. avatar

    Yeah, I think you might be the only other person on the internet who cares about those bands. Edinburgh Man and Stu from Tidal Wave seem pretty into them too though, now that I think about it.

    Oh I could listen to ‘Lament…’ all day long. Such a great song! Looking forward to copping the sampler as well, just to own more releases featuring it (and the last sampler was cool so I’ll make an inductive leap here, as it were) –

    Indeed. Magic Eye are new to me but I’ve written about LeThug, put on Plastic Animals and profiled Zed Penguin for Radar. Coupled with my ongoing love for Meursault, Mr Stafford, etc, and an ace new Lil Daggers song, this may in fact be your best podcast yet.

    Apart from that posh bloke that waffles in between songs OBVIOUSLY.

    New Year’s resolution #243 is to sort my fucking turntable out – the split 12″ is top of my purchase list.

    Sparrow and the Workshop North American tour?

    If only we could send anyone on a N. American tour. That would be awesome, but so so expensive.
