Video News: Chasing Owls/Frightened Rabbit/Glasgow Podcart/Meursault/Sons And Daughters/Wolves At Heart

Posted on June 13, 2011


Edinburgh quartet Chasing Owls released the We Began EP earlier this year, and now have a video to accompany it’s gorgeous opening track, Wedding Song. You can purchase the EP from Bandcamp now and catch the band live in Inverness on Friday.

Frightened Rabbit were up north playing Rock Ness this weekend, and BBC Alba had the band in session playing Swim Until You Can’t See Land, and a brand new track, Scottish Wind. This video was actually uploaded by my blogger pal Peenko, so keep your eyes peeled for the recordings to appear on his site.

The lovely folk over at Glasgow Podcart spent last Saturday in Edinburgh on Detour‘s Wee Jaunt. Armed with microphones, a camera, and lots of wine, they set about making the first ever visual podcast on the site. It comes in at just under an hour, but it’s well worth setting aside the time as it has live footage, interviews and mch more. The official Detour video should be out soon, so expect to see that on here too.

Glasgow Podcart unfortunately had to head back to Glasgow before the final band of The Wee Jaunt, Lady North, so here’s some footage of them from the day.

Meursault recently did a session for Songs From The Shed. It sees the Edinburgh band play an acoustic version of Settling, which is completely new to me, and sounds excellent. Make sure you check out the Songs From The Shed website too, there are loads of great videos to peruse.

Sons and Daughters today release Breaking Fun, the first single from upcoming album Mirror Mirror. They drafted in Optimo’s JD Twitch to produce the new material, and I really like new vibe and sound of the band. If you’re really quick you may just catch them playing in a laundrette tonight, check This Week In Gigs for details.

Wolves At Heart recorded this acoustic version of Why Did I Even Come Here at the Struggletown Records HQ (spare room). The track comes from the band’s Write It Down EP, and transfers really well to an unplugged setting. Pick up a copy on Bandcamp.
