Their sound embraces an eclectic mix of influences, from post rock to indie folk to dark pop – think Daughter meets Sigur Rós. [adapted from bio]

Today’s Dose is the title track from their debut EP Pulse – due out on 15th October.

Rebecca Everett: Sting of a Kiss

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 09/26/2015 - 12:00

Rebecca EverettVictoria, BC artist Rebecca Everett is on the verge of releasing her album “Seven Shades” in a few short days on October 2nd.

The newly released single “Sting of a Kiss” is a beautiful effort that conjures up a nice dose of stylized noir imagery from the 40s and 50s, with a subtle hint of mystery evoked by the reverb drenched guitar-work. The vocals are very passionate and the emotions are laid out in the powerful lyrics, creating quite an exciting first effort.

The artist had the following to say about the creation of the forthcoming album:
“It’s doubtful that any of this album could exist without periods of the obscurity and loss of faith, for we have to let our former stage of faith die to move onto the next. I think the fear of death arises because we have been programmed to believe we are an object. The creation of this album came from being in a space between loss and faith, a meditation that brings deep, dark hidden mysteries up to the surface to look at. The album describes and shows my struggles with these and other ideologies. “

If you are in Toronto Canada on October 3rd, you can check out and support her at the Record Release Party at GAS (Gerrard Art Space).

Dave’s Lounge #316: Keep Singing

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 09/25/2015 - 16:45

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #316
I’ve always had an appreciation for both a well-written song and a lovely singing voice, which is why I’ve focused more thorughout the years on vocal tracks rather than instrumental tracks. That comes through even more than usual this week, as I came across a lot of really good songs. Nine of the 12 tracks in this week’s playlist are vocal tracks, although even the instrumentals have a melodic feel to them that fit with the rest of the episode. If you appreciate good songs and good singers like I do, this is the episode for you.

Chris Dupont: Forgiveness

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 09/25/2015 - 12:00
Chris Dupont Ann Arbor MI folk artist, Chris DuPont, releases his new album, Outlier, on November 13. The record’s first single, Forgiveness, is today’s Dose. The theme of Outlier is confronting darkness through thoughtful deliberation, and each song showcases this idea in a different way.

Faced with the new challenge of becoming a father, DuPont bares his difficulties with family and his own sense of belonging. Full of his trademark vulnerability and candor, Outlier is a confession and an absolution in one. “Outlier describes me, but also helps represent the work as a whole.” says DuPont. “Many of the tunes are about thinking differently or mindfully, which can make you an outlier in your community.” [via GLG]
