Worryingly Okay is a lo-fi album recorded by Adam during a period of semi-isolation having moved away from Glasgow to the north east of Scotland. The majority of the music is performed by Adam and sees a return to the DIY home recording style of Randolph’s Leap’s early releases. The album explores connections to people and places (Hide A Thing, Mull, Television) dances with politics (Geopolitical Blues, Lungs) and even describes the absurdity of a fictional relationship with an optician (Hoping To See). This CD-only release comes with a lyric sheet and a beautiful annotated map of Scotland, illustrated by Peggy-May Chapple, highlighting the stories behind the songs.
The soundtrack to the Right Light Lines theatre production of The Isle of Love. This compilation CD features a whopping 21 songs from the play, all for the bargain sum of just £5, that’s less than 25p a track!

THE SCOTLAND ON SUNDAY
* ALBUM OF THE WEEK*
“it feels like the work of a band who have just found their feet and are poised to grow from here.”
“Masters of melody… lo-fi indie-pop gems”
“wordplay-fuelled compendium of lovesick croons, instrumental wrangles, awkward hosannas and gorgeous, longing pop arias”
“Merry silliness… low-key beauty… some of Ross’s finest work”
“The next generation of witty Scottish indie pop”
FOLK RADIO UK
“a thoughtful, funny and uplifting album that deserves a wide audience”
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.

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.
