SONG, BY TOAD presents...
The grand setting of st James Church could be called Toad Hall given how close it is to the HQ of Song, by Toad, an independent record label and music blog based in Edinburgh.

Now a staple badge for quality original independent music from Scotland and beyond Song, by Toad, was founded in 2008 by Matthew Young, and has released a number of critically acclaimed albums by acts including Meursault, Rob St John and Sparrow and the Workshop. The label takes its name from a passage in The Wind and the Willows.

Song, by Toad began in 2004 as a music blog . The label was founded in 2008 after a drunken discussion with the band Broken Records, whereby Young promised to release the band's first album if they weren't signed by another record label. Although Broken Records eventually signed to 4AD, Young decided to found the label anyway.

Following low key releases by Uhersky Brod and Nightjar, the label's first major release was Pissing on Bonfires/Kissing with Tongues by the Edinburgh-based Meursault in 2009, the success of which Young credits with forcing him 'to set up a proper record label'.

The album was rated by cultural magazine The Skinny as the 16th best Scottish album of the 2000-2010 decade.

Presented in association with DECAGRAM.
