Gustave TigerToday’s Dose comes from Budapest in Hungary, by Gustave Tiger, an art punk band, formed in 2013, who released their second album At The Idyll’s End via BandCamp on a Name Your Price basis (no minimum). Their debut, Mitanni Mares was released in 2013 and is also on BandCamp.

“Starting off as a power trio with Péter Mezősi on drums, Csaba Szabó on bass, vocals and Gergő Dorozsmai on guitar, vocals, Gustave Tiger were soon joined by the brilliant young singer Erika Szurcsik to complete the line-up that created the pop sensibility infused psychedelic punk rock vision of At The Idyll’s End.” [bio]

I've mixed it all up this week - thrown it in the pot, stirred it up and poured it out. Johnny Winter, Kirk Fletcher, Gary Clark, Jr., Vaneese Thomas, and Devon Allman may get the headlines but it turns out to be another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 503rd Roadhouse.

The Ocean Party: Head Down

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 10/18/2014 - 14:00

The Ocean PartyThe excellent new single Head Down is taken from The Ocean Party’s forthcoming 4th album “Soft Focus,” out October 31 in Australia & New Zealand via Spunk, and November 4 in the US via Jigsaw.  While it appears the group is currently based out of Melbourne, it looks like they initially started in Wagga Wagga, NSW.

Upcoming tour gigs this month on the West and East coast of the US include the following few dates centered near the CMJ Festival in New York, apparently followed by an album launch tour in Australia hitting in Nov.  Check the links below for the latest:

October 20 – Camero Gallery – Brooklyn, NY [Spunk Records Pre-CMJ Showcase]
October 23 – Drom – New York, NY [CMJ]
October 25 – The Delancey – New York, NY [CMJ]

Edinburgh Man #181

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 10/16/2014 - 20:12

Regular listeners will remember that my MacBook recently died. Well in the last week my iPhone has started to head in a similar way. Damn you Apple. Despite my best coaxing it’s proving impossible to copy music onto it. So that’s my new music player right there. Retro listening. I can, however, fit about three time as much music on it, so it’s not all bad.

I’ve been dealing with a sick child today, so if I’m sounding a bit worn out physically and emotionally on this podcast, that’s why. Being a parent when kids are ill is no fun at all.

Glass Oaks: Screens

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 10/16/2014 - 14:00

Glass OaksAfter recently stumbling headlong into the new single ‘Screens’ from the Lynchburg, Virginia indie folk-rock four piece, Glass Oaks, I found they based their inspired band name from “the creative expression of the human experience, which is both permanent like an oak and fragile like glass.”

The Soundcloud issued single looks to be officially dropping via the new release entitled “Dim Coal Night” on Nov 4, and additionally the group has a live performance of the track available online that we’ve embedded further below.

Influences of the band reportedly range very eclectically from gospel to Alt-Country.

Live Gig: Discovery 2 with ShaoDow, Model Society, Alex Hulme and Big Zero

The Justin Wayne Show - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 18:44


Join Claire Rozario down at the The AAA, now called the Archangel Basement, with these excellent live sets and interviews from four fantastic artists: ShaoDow, Model Society, Alex Hulme and Big Zero. It was an excellent night full of great performances, and you can hear it all right here.

More About the Bandsdiscovery2-poster-march14 ShaoDow

A Shaolin Kung Fu trained independent rapper with a Law degree; known for working with genres including Hip Hop, Grime, Dubstep, Rock and House.

Trained in Shaolin Kung Fu in China he has sold over 15,000 copies of his CDs across the world alone, toured in Thailand, performed at Reading and Leeds Festival and headlined the O2 Academy Oxford twice.

He has self released 5 singles, 1 EP, 2 Mixtapes and 2 Albums and co-released the DiY Gang Wireless Headphones range with Freesound Audio.

ShaoDow’s website

Model Society

A quintessentially British sound which breathes new energy into social commentary and satire of today’s surburban life.

Having recorded tracks with the likes of Paul Tipler (Idlewild, Placebo) and Steve Levine (Beach Boys, Culture Club) they have a succesful list of airplay and gigs under their belt including Bestival, O2 December Sessions and supporting Young Knives. They put on a captivating live show and are often described as a musical blend of Blur, Bloc Party and Hard Fi with a nod to the nostalgia of Buzzcocks.

“I’d have said to John Peel, Hey listen to this great sound” Rob Da Bank

“So catchy Interpol and Franz Ferdinand will wonder why they ever bothered.” ARTROCKER

Model Society’s website

Big Zero

You know the story… three musicians from a no-name town, fed up with listening to the music played on the radio came together to form a band. But this is where the familiarity ends…

These young purveyors of New Wave Punk Rock, are here to shake things up and give Pop music a much needed shot of adrenaline. They are fast, they are loud and they want to get up in everyone’s faces. Adam Saunderson, Bradley Stainton, and Johnny Shinner are taking influence from the best of British and American Pop Rock; from The Cars to The Police, from Green Day to The Sex Pistols. Real bands that play live music. To the outside world they were simply the punks, the weirdos, the outsiders, but together they are BIG ZERO.

Big Zero on Twitter

Alex Hulme

Folk-pop singer, writer and loop maker Alex Hulme returns to the AAA as part of his promotional tour for his new single ‘Climb’. Plaudits from Paul McCartney and Billy Ocean aside, his work has received critical acclaim from the likes of Ultimate Guitar and the Beeb.

Alex performs like his life depends on it. Don’t just take our word for it; listen to Sir Macca, listen for yourself. He conquers the intricate layering of loops on a live stage that would put his hero, Foy Vance, to shame, and coming from a humble rural background in the North West, he has a lot to talk about. His lyrics are striking, his vocals are velveteen.

“A beautiful song and a wonderful melody” – Sir Paul McCartney

“His ability to command the room was nothing short of remarkable…” -Bido Lito Magazine

Jungle Doctors: The Sea and the Rain

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 14:00

Jungle DoctorsWe lucked out on a recent dive into the vast musical mash of Soundcloud, running into a handful of excellent tracks from London indie pop-rock group JUNGLE DOCTORS. Apparently in a little less than a month’s time the band has amassed over 75,000 plays of their recent single, “The Sea and the Rain”, not to mention a nice healthy listening mark on their slightly older songs, dating back at least a year.

Since the release of their first EP in July 2012, they have picked up lots of attention from blogs and radio stations, releasing “Better”, “Talk to Me” and the newer “Open Up” EP. A notable quote we found from the band: “The first two singles from the EP have done incredibly well compared to the last material that we released, so you can’t help feeling that things are moving forwards, plus people actually want photos with us after gigs now”

We’ve embedded a April 2014 video for “Falling” from the band below, for those hungry for more earlier output from the group. For those in London, you can catch Jungle Doctors at their next live gig opening for Patterns at The Garage on October 25th. A blast of links that you will need follow…
