Randolf's Leap's earlier recordings took the lo-fi, bedroom recording approach. But this album has higher production values, and the results are well worth the extra time and effort. Combined with the skilled contribution from the band and Ross' talents for penning well-considered comments and them dressing them up in bright pop wrappings, this is one of the better bands Scotland has to offer, and Cowardly Deeds is a worthy calling card.
The band are Adam Ross (guitar/vocals), Adam Florence (drums), Vicki Cole (bass), Andrew MacLellan (guitar), Heather Fox (violin), Pete MacDonald (keyboards), Ali Hendry (trumpet) and Fraser Gibson (trombone). Cowardly Deeds is out now via Glasgow's Olive Grove Records. One source to purchase would be the Olive Grove Bandcamp page which is linked at the bottom of this post.
