Thanks to the wonders of Twitter, I just discovered a new-ish website/music project called Off The Beaten Tracks.
Based in Edinburgh, the website seems to be the Scottish version of Laundromatinee, offering high quality, intimate performance videos of Scottish musicians. Unlike Laundromatinee, though, the performances aren’t filmed in the studio, but instead in various public places across Edinburgh, from the street to the park to the shore.
Off The Beaten Tracks has hosted five sessions so far, including a brand new session with Scott from Frightened Rabbit. The session features three performances, including “Be Less Rude” from Sing The Grays, a cover of Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Song Against Sex”, and a brand new FR song called “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”.
Here’s the video for the latter song. To see the others (which I strongly recommend), go here.
