Gaba Kulka: Wielkie Wrazenie

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 12/06/2014 - 15:00

Gaba KulkaWe are proud to bring you another outstanding Polish artist shortly after the last ambassador was featured about a week ago. Gabrielle Kulka, going by the shorter nick, Gaba Kulka is from Warsaw, Poland and has recently released her album ‘The Escapist’, this past September 8th.

I’m having a hard time following the dialogue on her social sites, but the Soundcloud bio states that she sings, writes songs, and plays the piano, her music falling in area of progressive pop: a motley mixture of styles, from jazz, to piano rock, to weillesque cabaret.

She has written and recorded three albums, critically acclaimed and well received by an ever growing audience, even being awarded with the Polish ‘grammy’ (Fryderyk). We hope to hear more in the future as this is one not to be missed.

Edinburgh Man #188

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 12/04/2014 - 19:53

Regular listeners will remember that my MacBook died recently and I’ve been having to use an antiquated computer instead. Well, the good news is that thanks to potentially counterfeit spare parts from eBay it’s back up and running! So today’s image is the Mac as it went under the knife… or the screwdriver… So it’s working – albeit with a bit more sellotape than is probably to be recommended.

Music-wise, great indie-pop from Madrid’s Deers (yes, I realised I’m late to the party with regards to their brilliance), a new track from By Toutatis singer Daniel Cochran Middle Eastern project The Belly of Paris, and from Last Battle singer’s Scott Longmuir’s Beard of Truth solo project.

Nozart: Long Long Time

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 12/02/2014 - 15:00

NozartOriginally from Syracuse, NY, Nozart (aka Noah Kellman) is a New York City based composer, songwriter and producer who focuses on combining the cinematic elements of film scores with pop forms.

With a few excellent tracks available at the social sites below, Nozart will soon be releasing what sounds like an exciting debut album, apparently his first self-produced body of work that will feature artwork and short stories inspired by the music.

Much of Nozart’s musical foundation stems from his long devotion to jazz, while other important influences include greats such as Son Lux, St. Vincent, Deadmau5, John Williams, Danny Elfman, Stravinsky and Ravel.

The Polish Ambassador: Lost & Found (feat. Mr Lif & Ayla Nereo)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 11/29/2014 - 15:00

The Polish AmbassadorNaturally with my part Polish heritage, the name of this group has been a magnet over the last decade or so since I first heard what was likely their debut on My(old)Space. It was just the other day that I stumbled upon and dove through their Soundcloud page finding a diverse range of incredible electronic sampling, including a nice mix-up featuring samples from a track by favorite instrumentalists, Explosions in the Sky.

Today’s feature is in the hip-hop meets world-beat vein with the Polish Ambassador’s incredible sampling skills putting together a seamless track featuring the talents of Mr Lif and Ayla Nereo on the Pushing Through the Pavement album. If you get a chance check out the Soundcloud or Bandcamp pages for a kaleidoscope of great tracks under the name-your-price model. A slew of tourdates are also currently underway so check the official website for the latest.
