Roadhouse 511

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sun, 12/14/2014 - 00:31
With the year-end new release lull upon us, I dig into the catalog for this hour of The Roadhouse. Tom Hambridge, Guitar Shorty and the Otis Grand Band, Fabulous Thunderbirss, Darrell Nulisch, and Bluestime - along with Christmas music - keep the hour in sync with the philosophy of every show. It's another hour of the finest blues you've never heard, the 511th Roadhouse.

Tom Rosenthal: Hey Luis Don’t Bite Me

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 12/13/2014 - 13:00

Tom RosenthalLondon UK singer-songwriter Tom Rosenthal put out today’s featured single, “Hey Luis Don’t Bite Me”, back in June, to what appears to be an ode to a hungry footballer we all primarily remember from Brazil’s World Cup. It’s a superb stand-alone track which you don’t even need to know of the biting sportsman to love. If there was actually a retrospective for the year on this site, this song would likely be among the top.

Animation on the video we’ve embedded further below is by a lad named Dave Anderson. Also be sure to check out Tom’s first two albums and more on his releases over on his Bandcamp page and over at Soundcloud.

Edinburgh Man #189

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 12/11/2014 - 21:02

I don’t know why I’m bothering to do this podcast – it won’t be as riveting as Serial, right? You’ve been listening to Serial haven’t you? No? Well, stop reading this nonsense and go and listen to it right now. For some reason I thought there were only ten episodes of Serial so I held of starting it until they’d all been released. And this week I listened to them all while walking to and from work. Come rain or shine or snow… But I just finished episode 10 today and there are two more to go! So go and listen to them now. I need someone else to talk to about it.

Meanwhile, on this podcast. Some music and stuff.

HAWK: Hush

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 12/11/2014 - 15:00

HAWKLondon based indie rock foursome, HAWK have released their latest single, Hush a few days ago on December 8th. It is apparently the first release from the group’s forthcoming EP ‘Clock Hands’, and if this is any indication of what is in store, it will be a very promising year to come.

Irish-born lead singer Julie Hawk initially embarked on a solo folk career, and began collaborating with band member Matt in 2012. After a year on the acoustic circuit, the pair gained support from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson. The fledgling duo then joined Sam and Chris to form the band you hear today, adding a new abrasive edge to their sound while retaining the delicacy of their acoustic roots.

Also, beyond this excellent single, be sure to check out the new video for ‘Hush’, embedded further below.

It’s time for another Rathole Radio and this show I was trying a whole new set up in the studio with mixed results. In the long run it will be more flexible but getting used to live mixing, firing off jingles and watching IRC all at once is a challenge. I’ll get the hang of it eventually. In the meantime you can enjoy another hour of eclectic music and musings.

Vincent Colbert: Rose Yellow Moon

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 15:00

Vincent ColbertAnn Arbor, Michigan based singer-songwriter Vincent Colbert has just released the 2nd single, “Rose Yellow Moon” from his forthcoming sophomore EP, Stranger in My House coming out next January 20, 2015. The song is basically described as encapsulating the feeling of being in a new place which does not yet feel like home, yet there is so much more in the origins of this beautiful song:

“Rose Yellow Moon” resulted from a songwriting game Colbert and other Ann Arbor songwriters played each week called “The Polar Vortex Song Game”. The game was invented during the polar vortex of 2014 with each songwriter given a random phrase to be incorporated into the song. A culmination of one particular week when Colbert was given the phrase “rose yellow moon” evolved into an autobiographical extinguishing of his woes.

The most personal song on the EP for Colbert, it highlights the period of time he refers to as the “dark days” when he first moved to Ann Arbor. Colbert says “moving to a new place where I didn’t know anyone was tough. I spent a lot of time alone with my thoughts, and I was pretty isolated and alone for awhile.” This feeling is captured with the lyric, “alone at the bar and it feels like the dark will descend on my stone heart”. Colbert strived to record this song live in a raw way with the addition of slide guitar which resembles the cry of a lonesome wolf howling at the moon with the hopes of finding others like him.
