New on Toad: Frightened Rabbit - Today's Cross
The above video is for b-side Today’s Cross by Frightened Rabbit . I mention this for two reasons: Firstly, I really like the song. This is good news, as I wasn’t that keen on their last album, and they are really nice guys so I genuinely want to like their stuff. Now I am looking forward to hearing their new record Pedestrian Verse , which is good. Secondly, the video above was made by young Ian who works for Song, by Toad Records , along with some of his chums. It’s a clever wee video in its own right, but its sheer slick professionalism rather raises the question of why everything at Song, by Toad Records is so fucking shambolic. I assume this is a subtle hint that we could and should be doing better! So well done old chap, a fine piece of work. If only everything around here were so well-executed!
