Meanwhile, on the other side of the world...

Another Song, By Toad release is out, this time a 12-inch split featuring David Thomas Broughton, Jonnie Common, Sparrow and the Workshop, and Siobhan Wilson, by whom a lead single has been released for free listening.

The selection comes partly from Matthew Young's Edinburgh-based Song, By Toad Records, and was drawn from the lineup of Aviemore's Insider Festival, where the recordings took place (at the nearby Inshriach House). You can find the record here starting July 14. The single track by Wilson and two by Broughton, which sandwich the album, are both the most stripped down and the standouts of the record.

Additionally! There will be an Indiegogo campaign launching tomorrow, to support a documentary on David Thomas Broughton. Have a look at this trailer, as well as a few words from filmmaker Greg Butler:

This is a trailer to music documentary currently being made about the eccentrically surreal performer and heartbreaking musician and songwriter David Thomas Broughton.

The film is in the early stages of production and this trailer was created after conducting the first five interviews. Since the trailer was first put together 12 interviews have been shot and included contributions from Shearwaters Jonathan Meiburg, Sam Amidon and David Shrigley. Many other interviews have been lined up over forthcoming months including Beth Orton, Liz Green and James Yorkston among others.

A crowd funding campaign is about to get underway so please pledge some money if you are fan of David’s work at all (from 23rd June on Indiegogo) So far I’ve put purely my own money into this project and I need some help if I am to make something really special and make the film that that David’s talent deserves.

The film should be completely shot by September and edited by the end of the year. Let me know if you can help me in any way shape or form, any help would be much appreciated and maybe even rewarded in a small way.
