Ed Tullett: Oxblood (Stop the Car remix)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 14:00

Ed TullettThe Stop the Car remix of Oxblood comes off of the late 2013 remix EP put out by Brighton, UK artist Ed Tullett. In this EP he re-imagines his single with five wholly different versions. This specific version definitely spoke the most to us…. so here it is. Check the BandCamp link below for the other four.

Also, a new music video has surfaced for Novo Amor & Ed Tullett’s song “Faux,” which just recently made its debut. The video was produced by Storm + Shelter and directed by Josh Bennett and we’ve embedded this effort further below.

SnC 420 – Gianna Lauren

Suffolk And Cool - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 16:46

Gianna Lauren takes time out to talk with Peter about her music and life in Nova Scotia.

Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the very people who have the depth to make such exploration so thoroughly worthwhile


GiannaGianna Lauren (Halifax, NS, Canada)

Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the very people who have the depth to make such exploration so thoroughly worthwhile.

This week we focus on Guianna Lauren whose almost wistful music was showcased at The Great Escape. It’s a while since we recorded our conversation, just before I went down with what I’m increasing convinced was Great Escape plague!

We found a corner of the green room at The Blind Tiger, one of my favourite Brighton venues and I started by asking Gianna how the practicalities of music works for independents in Canada.

Originally haling from Ontario in Canada, Gianna Lauren released her EP ‘On Personhood’ via Forward Music Group on 5th May 2014.

The single ‘Anchor Down’ is a beautifully crafted slice of lush indie atmospheric rock, overlaid with softly percussive drums and serene guitars. Stylishly quirky Lauren makes dreamy songs, with real depth.

GL at Blind Tiger

In this set you’ll have heard all six tracks from her excellent “On Personhood” album. If you’ve liked them even just a bit, please bear in mind that an mp3 podcast is fine to give you a flavour of the music but I’d seriously recommend shelling out the princely sum of just $5 to get the album in your choice of high quality format and listening to it full, glorious colour.

The very good news for UK listeners is that only four months after her first European tour, Gianna Lauren will be returning to England  in September.

She’ll be playing four shows in England, including a performance at London’s Hoxton Square Bar opening for Sweden’s Jennie Abrahamson. Showcases at The Great Escape festival in Brighton back in May introduced Gianna’s music to English audiences through the UK release of her On Personhood EP. She is currently mixing a new full-length that will be available in 2015.

The Tallest Tree: Boat

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 14:00

The Tallest TreeThe Tallest Tree is a new collaborative project by Dawn from Dundas, Ontario and Armando out of Mexico City. It was when Armando’s band The Oats was playing in Canada that the two met and fell in love, following which Dawn would head to visit in Mexico City and they would write a new song together each time she arrived.

They ended up getting married and have just now released their first single ‘Boat’ produced by Dan Weston up in Toronto where they are now based. In addition the duo has also put together a great video for this exceptional track that features guest vocals by Marra Koren, which we’ve embedded further below. Make sure to check out their Soundcloud page for a few more excellent tracks and several upcoming August tourdates at their website.

Roadhouse 491

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 19:02
We move from the single focus of the Johnny Winter tribute to the full spectrum of blues in this edition. The Mannish Boys, Rip Lee Pryor, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Walter Trout, and Janiva Magness represent some of the best blues out there and, I think, help build another focused hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 491st Roadhouse.

Black Lady Soul: The Fall

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 14:00

Black Lady SoulThe debut album from Toronto’s BLACK LADY SOUL is set to be released August 16th, 2014. Their first single, ‘The Fall’ is a well put together mixture of jazz, rock, and hip-hop with all styles intersecting quite excitingly throughout this fresh new effort.

The group describes this song as an experience of individuals rising from a chance-less suburbia to an unforgiving city; endeavoring to succeed in their ambitions. Their stories delve into the struggle of love, addiction, personal identity, and global issues. They’ve also finished up a video for the single, shot and edited by Alec McKay with Art Direction by Jp Spanbauer. Check it out further below.

I’m aware that there’s been a TFL drought these past two months. The energy to produce a show has been lacking, and now I’m off on holiday for two weeks. Hopefully the break away will refresh the batteries & rekindle my desire to record.  In the meantime, thanks for bearing with me. Enjoy your summer!

Phoebes Song by Della Lupa – Free Music Feature MP3

The Justin Wayne Show - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 07:01

This weeks free music feature, and treat for your senses is ‘Phoebes Song’ by Della Lupa. This is an eerry, beautiful track that shows what her voice is capable of. Della Lupa and I had the great fortune of meeting at Discovery 2′s Summer Sizzler where we had a very sweet, short and awfully silly interview – podcast of said interview coming soon to The Justin Wayne Show! Such an interesting track – you enjoy it now.

Della Lupa is a Brighton based act created by Steph Brown whose native origins combine Italian and Vietnamese. This mixed heritage has driven Della Lupa’s unique sound, which encompasses Latino based tempos, Jazz melodies influenced by Asiatic scales and a lyrical Folk structure. Della Lupa’s debut EP, ‘Of The She Wolf’ was produced by Mercury nominated producer, Jag Jago (The Maccabees, Ghost of A Thousand, Cave Painting) and was released in June 2013. Following the release Della Lupa has played many of “London’s legendary music venues” including The Troubador and Ronnie Scott’s. Recently shortlisted as finalists in the Dawsons/Yamaha 2013 competition with Jools Holland, Della Lupa saw the New Year in on tour, playing some of Ireland’s most reputed venues. The Ireland tour kicked off an exciting year ahead, with the release of their first video working in collaboration with Dominic Knight (Eighties Matchbox B-­‐Line Disaster, Bad For Lazarus), whose previous work has won the title of most viewed video on the NME website in 2012. Also on the cards are plans for a their first UK tour, confirmed dates abroad and a new single release.

Edinburgh Man #175

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 07/24/2014 - 20:19

So Edinburgh Man Junior is doing this thing at the moment where he won’t stay in his bed if he’s awake. As you can imagine this is playing havoc with the live podcasting schedule. The early evening routine basically involves me reading Julia Donaldson books in a whispery voice until he falls asleep. By which time my voice is wrecked and I need to fortify my throat with red bush tea and copious amounts of water before I can record a podcast.

Anyway, this is the result. Chat today includes the normal rambling nonsense about slow toddlers on bikes without pedals, riding on hot sweaty trams, and the acoustic properties of large railway stations.

Music-wise. Och it’s brilliant. Just listen.
