Luke Herbert: Coasting

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - 2 hours 10 min ago

Luke HerbertLuke Herbert is a promising new singer, songwriter, and producer out of Denton, Texas who creatively pulls his inspired sounds from the varying genres of alternative, pop and funk.

The first two songs on his Soundcloud, “Coasting” and “Summer’s Casket” are the first two songs off his five song EP “Pulses” set to release October 16th! So far it looks to be very promising first debut from this new singer-songwriter, with some solid daydreaming instrumentation recounting lazy summer roadtrips, highlighted by distinct vocals that really shine and help pull it all together. A few of his first social links online follow…

Idyllic Music #192

Idyllic Music - Thu, 09/03/2015 - 20:00
This week, it's regrets and reconciliation. Regrets? I've had a few but by and large, I've moved on. It seems a measure of success by how little regret we take to our graves. The trick, of course, is in deciding how much of your personal past you are willing to overlook. Making that judgment on this episode of Idyllic Music are We came as Strangers, Surek, Vienna Ditto, Knoto, Zebrat, and Helicalin. I'm Jim Nye.

Preview: Discovery 2 with Fudge and the Frequency, Joe Boyd Band, Miss Higgins DIY n Gofu and Georgie Cullum

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 09/03/2015 - 17:28


It’s time to get funky for our end-of-summer showcase with futuristic, funk from Fudge and the Frequency, the rock sounds of the Joe Boyd Band, also UK avant-garde artist Miss Higgins DIY who will be performing some new music featuring Senegalese rapper Gofu from Senegal’s conscious hip-hop group Yatfu. You’ll also hear superbly talented singer /songwriter Georgie Cullum who has been compared to the likes of Adele and Emeli Sande but better. You’ll also have DJ Delphi filling in the spaces between bands and providing your dance breaks, and plenty of great people and a wonderful atmosphere.

On this podcast you’ll hear tracks from each of the artists, some chat between promoters Alex KW, Umong Shah and myself, and news about what’s been going on in the Discovery 2 world.

More about the artists FUDGE AND THE FREQUENCY

dis2-poster-aug15An energetic music collective who are telling the world to wake the funk up. Lead singer Fudge looks just as cutting edge as he sounds. His voice has a soulful rawness to it that could not have been taught or trained. Fudge & The Frequency’s music is a fusion of funk, soul, dubstep hip-hop, rock and reggae. Frontman Fudge’s voice sits perfectly in the middle of this soundscape allowing the listener to be taken away by the cleaver lyrics and refreshing tone. The singer has been dubbed ‘a mixture of Jamiroquai and Stevie Wonder with a futuristic punch in the face.

“Perhaps they could start prescribing a daily dose of this on the NHS from now on too. Get funky” – Never Too Old (To Dance).

“I have done many sessions working for Roland, but I have never seen a crowd go so nuts as I did when Fudge And The Frequency played. Tight band, great tunes and a vibe and style that is sure to get even the most cynical London crowd pumping.” -Roland

“Thank you for bringing the Funk back to BBC”. -BBC Radio

“The best live act we’ve ever had here”. -Kensington Roof Gardens


Taking inspiration from artists as diverse as Prince, Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix, Essex based Joe Boyd is crafting a reputation as a truly exciting and energetic live act with his unique Funk Rock sound.bThe Joe Boyd Band has been seen performing alongside Pendulum, Groove Armada and Mark Ronson and picking up airplay at BBC Essex, Amazing Radio and on John Kennedy’s XFM show, as well as featuring as Q Magazines ‘Track of The Day’. Latest single ‘Driver’ has already hit 100k views on YouTube and the tracks heavy funk groove, brash rock guitars and unforgettable hook were inspired by one of Boyd’s favourite past times: “One of my favourite things to do is to drive around late at night listening to music, so I wanted to make a track that would lend itself to that situation”. Raw and infectious, ‘Driver’ proves to be Joe Boyd’s finest moment yet.

“The unique sound that we are already falling in love with…destined for big things” – Gigslutz

“The Joe Boyd Band are definitely guys to watch out for in the future” – Subba-Cultcha


UK avant-garde artist Miss Higgins DIY will be performing some new music featuring Senegalese rapper Gofu from Senegal’s conscious hip hop group Yatfu.

“Thank you Miss Higgins DIY. The world need your music.” -Marques Toliver


A superb singer, songwriter who has been described as similar to Adele and Emeli Sande but better! She worked with 80s band ABC in LA during their last year tour also the late Roger Pope (Elton John’s drummer) and producer, Winston Sela (Johnny Mathis/Denice Williams, Maxi Priest). She’s currently working on an EP for release in early 2016.

Stevie B Wolf: Nothing But a Name

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 09/03/2015 - 12:00

Stevie B WolfNew York based (via Boulder, CO) singer-songwriter Stevie B Wolf recently announced the release of his alternative pop EP Alone + Alive due out Nov. 6.

The Alone + Alive EP provides listeners with a sense of catharsis and musical connection as Stevie B Wolf confronts a more common challenge – that of lost love. At a young age, Wolf was diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome, ADD, and depression. Rather than seeing his mental health as a weakness, Wolf overcomes this adversity to his musical advantage. “Tourette’s can manifest in many ways, like physical twitching or saying the same word over and over. A lot of my tics were tunes or phrases that popped into my head that I repeated compulsively. Maybe that has helped me develop a unique vocal and lyrical style.” He continues, “But it’s mostly that the presence of mental illness has always been a huge drive behind my music.” Wolf always felt like an outcast – like there was a barrier between other people and him; music was the way he could reach across that barrier and connect with people in a 100% real way.

Inspired & the Sleep: In My Labyrinth Mind

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 09/02/2015 - 12:00
Inspired & the Sleep Today’s Dose by Inspired & the Sleep is a single is leading up to their self-release of the EP Eyelid Kid, in October.

“Inspired & the Sleep is a dream-pop band based in San Diego, California, consisting of a revolving lineup surrounding singer-songwriter Max Greenhalgh & multi-instrumentalist Bryce Outcault. Focusing on rhythm and melody, Greenhalgh’s loop-based demos are rewoven with additional psychedelic/jazz threads to construct groove-centered pop songs. Determined on continuous reinvention, the band is moving towards a more refined and darker approach to arranging with polished production while retaining hints of Greenhalgh’s previous lo-fi ponderings.” [bio]

Show 290 – The Tablet Edition

Three From Leith - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 04:30

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Well, this was a first – a show recorded on the iPad, live, and flying by the seat of my pants! Other than a slightly fluffed vocal and soudbed coming in a little too soon at the end of one song, it went pretty well (although hearing what I said coming back through the headphones a fraction of a second after I said it was really off-putting). Still, it’s good to try something different every now and again to keep you on your toes. Enjoy the tunes – there’s a real feel of energy behind this week’s selection.

Peur – Explosions

My Cruel Goro – Crapford

Zurich – Chemical / Menace

Hezekiah Jones: The Dark Heart’s Out

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 08/30/2015 - 12:00

Hezekiah JonesHezekiah Jones is the musical vehicle for Raphael Cutrufello, a Philadelphia-based musician who has been recording with his bandmates–AKA the family Jones–since 2006. Drawn to the cartography of imaginary worlds, Raphael began writing soundtracks to nonexistent science fiction films in middle school. He has written about everything from the inability to grow a proper beard to letters from 30 years in the future, to psychic mobility, or the lack thereof.

In Loving Memory of oosi Lockjaw marks a significant departure—and expansion—in style for Hezekiah Jones–this album is the first time the live band has participated in the recording process. Up until this release, the albums were recorded layer by layer on out­dated equipment in bedrooms and basements across Philadelphia.

Their newest creation, In Loving Memory of oosi Lockjaw, will be released by Woodfarm Records in November of 2015.

We Came As Strangers: Eyedom

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 08/29/2015 - 12:00

We Came As StrangersToday’s featured track is the latest single from the English band We Came As Strangers, whose new album ‘Eyedom’ releases this coming Monday – Aug 31, 2015.

The song from the forthcoming release is a striking effort, the underlying vocals of lead singer Ellem steadily building in intensity beneath the surface and welling up over halfway through as the ambient track slowly unfurls. Its quite a stunning albeit short track, which slowly enraptures the listener up until the end and leaves one absolutely hungry for more. Luckily the full release is only a few short days away and in the meantime for starters you can check out the July release of the excellent video for their first single ‘Still Life’, embedded below.
