TOM GEORGE

Having played with various groupings of musicians, he is now a solo artist, playing guitar and singing lead vocals on his melodic, lyrically-engaging songs. Tom is currently performing pared-down acoustic versions of his tunes accompanied by jazz flautist George Roberts.

After their previous sell out gigs “sublime acoustic duo TJ & Murphy” (Jade Wright, Liverpool Echo) return to Mathew Street’s View Two Gallery on Friday 22nd August with new songs and old favourites. Expect interwoven vocal harmonies and a unique guitar style that can only be attributed to them.

Liverpool Acoustic co-organiser Graham Holland said “We’re delighted to welcome back crowd favourites TJ & Murphy for an intimate, acoustic set in the View Two Gallery’s performance space. These boys never fail to impress and I’m sure this night will be no exception. They will be perfectly complimented by the solo talents of Adrian Nation and the African-inspired sound of Mojo Storm. I can’t think of a better way to start the Bank Holiday weekend in Liverpool.”

UPDATE: TJ & Murphy will be appearing live on Billy Butler’s BBC Radio Merseyside show from 2.30pm on Friday 22nd August to talk about the gig, their future plans, and to play a couple of songs. You can listen live at bbc.co.uk/liverpool

Downtempo electronic music continues to evolve into new forms and absorb influences from all over the globe, and it’s all on display in this week’s mix.

Also, anyone who releases a song called “Time Will Wait” just ahead of the new season premiere of Doctor Who is a bloody genius. That is all.

Live: The Justin Wayne Show with Tim Atlas at Main Street Studios

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 08/14/2014 - 20:44

Back in January, we had a unique chance to introduce an artist to Walla Walla at Main Street Studios. Tim Atlas came to us for two nights and someone had the crazy idea of kicking off a live version of The Justin Wayne Show on the first night. With the help of Michael Simon of Coffee Ring Studios dealing with all of the sound both on stage and recording, Nate Redford of Lumenate Design taking care of the set, lights and promo pieces, and Tim Atlas bringing his A game, we had a great time.

Other thank-yous going out to Alisa Gilbert, Kim Boyd and Rachael Buroker of Main Street Studios and all the rest of the crew and audience who attended and made this an amazing night.

You can listen to the entire show here in the podcast above. You can also view a few songs we got on video as well as Tim’s short loop pedal clinic he did on stage for me.

Twin Ponies: Phallacy

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 08/14/2014 - 14:00

Twin PoniesTwin Ponies is self-described as a progressive rock band composed of members of the defunct Tempe indie-alternative band, Tugboat. They came together in 2013 and released the EP “Pores” last September, engineered and mixed by Fred Huang and mastered by Fen Ikner.

While we couldn’t get enough of one of their signature tracks, “Willoughby,” from this release, “Phallacy” kept forcing us to come back and re-listen, especially after the final instrumental kicks off, wherein all hell breaks loose. This is one of my favorite tracks this year and comes highly recommended.

I’ve also been told they’ve made a run of cassettes so you may want to check out their BandCamp below as it includes a bonus track, “Pink Skin.”
