Real Anymore (video)

We’ve got a busy few days coming up here at Randolph’s Leap HQ. Tonight (6/9/13) we’re celebrating the release of our new mini-album, ‘Real Anymore’, with a gig at the Glad Cafe in Shawlands. We’ve got David from Kid Canaveral and St Kilda Mailboat playing too, so it should be a pretty fun evening. There aren’t many tickets left, so if you want to avoid any disappointment you can book tickets from our webshop up until around 4pm.

As if that isn’t exciting enough, we have a brand new video for the single, ‘Real Anymore‘ which you can stream above. If ironing, funky dancing and fake beards float your boat then you’re going to love it!

If you can’t make it along tonight, then get yourself along to Love Music for 5:30pm tomorrow (7/9/13) as Adam is going to be playing an in-store gig as part of their Cassette Store Day celebrations. We’ve had just 20 copies of ‘Real Anymore’ made up on cassette, so if you like your music with a bit of hiss you’re in luck – get yours while stocks last from Love Music and Monorail in Glasgow and VoxBox in Edinburgh.

The album officially comes out on Monday coming (9/9/13), but if you can’t wait that long then just head over to our new web shop and pre-order yourself a copy.

Talking of Monday, we’re going to be live in session on BBC Radio Scotland with Nicola Meighan who is sitting in for Vic Galloway. We’re going to be playing two of our own songs plus a surprise cover … tune in from 8.05pm to find out what we’ve come up with!

Real Anymore CD (mini album)

Real-Anymore

The Real Anymore mini-album pits Nature against Technology, love against loathing and humour against heartbreak. You will find tongue-in-cheek wit aplenty as Adam recounts his imagined career as a telephone psychic and tackles issues of ‘tweeness’ with self-deprecatory aplomb. Moments of darkness and doubt also await you as you scratch beneath the chirpy veneer but – worry not – our protagonist finds ultimate salvation in the great outdoors and emerges jubilant, clutching a string of typically tenuous rhyming couplets.

The Curse of the Haunted Headphones and As Fast As A Man CD

The Curse of the Haunted Headphones/As Fast As A Man CD

 

Compilation CD featuring two home recorded albums – ‘The Curse of the Haunted Headphones’ and ‘As Fast As A Man’.

‘The Curse of the Haunted Headphones’ was originally released on limited cassette in February 2012. This home-recorded album takes the listener on a hair-raising journey from the wilds of Nairnshire to the karaoke bars of historic Edinburgh, showcasing Adam Ross’s distinctive songwriting skills and destructive audio production skills. Despite its lo-fi nature the album received some terrific reviews with The List heralding “funny, poignant acoustic arias… Randolph’s Leap are in an endearing, harmonious league of their own”, whilst the acclaimed music blogger Song by Toad proclaimed Adam to be “just about my favourite lyricist in Scotland in the moment”.

In September 2012 Randolph’s Leap put the tin whistles and cheap keyboards to one side and recorded mini-album ‘As Fast As A Man’. It features live favourite ‘Weatherman’ and a whole host of other goodies recorded in the living rooms of Adam Ross and violinist Heather Thikey. Low-key and understated in nature, As Fast As A Man arguably features some of the most emotionally raw Randolph’s Leap material to date.

Coming in at a whopping 64 minutes and featuring 24 tracks, this new compilation CD is an ideal way to familiarise yourself with the DIY charms of Randolph’s Leap.
