Red Wanting Blue: Black Canyon

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 14:00

Red Wanting BlueColumbus Ohio’s RED WANTING BLUE are on the verge of releasing a new album “Little America” this Summer after 2012′s “From the Vanishing Point”. The last album apparently hit the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, but we unfortunately completely missed this achievement after featuring the band on the Dose back in 2010. But hot damn, I can easily now say that the newest single ‘Black Canyon’ is the perfect song for the entire upcoming Summer and likewise “Little America’s” release on July 1st. The vocals strike somewhere in the vein of Wintersleep or even that of Eddie Vedder, conjuring up the perfect feeling of Americana, long sunny days/warm nights, and strong new memories forged with family & friends.

“Little America” celebrates a community spirit that Red Wanting Blue shares with its audience, that goes beyond fans who simply give back the passion that comes off the stage. Red Wanting Blue’s hard work is matched by fans who work hard, too. It’s not unexpected for members of this growing legion to take days off of work and cross state lines to follow the band, to learn just-written tunes from wobbly YouTube videos, and to sing every word at every concert.

Band leader Scott Terry sums up his connection with the songs on “Little America” and his connection with Red Wanting Blue’s fans this way: “These songs are the soundtrack of my life, and it’s my calling to give that back with the hope of having our songs be the soundtrack of someone else’s.”

JW Show 231: Comedy Roadtrip

The Justin Wayne Show - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 08:00

Hilarity ensued on the show this week as the  Comedy Roadtrip  came to town, allowing me a few minutes with Billy Anderson, Aaron Kirby and Robert Lackey. I got a good education into the Seattle and Tacoma comedy scenes and learned about this crazy undertaking of a tour they’ve embarked on.

Correction: We banged on about The Undivided‘s new album “World’s Apart” and were mistaken, it’s called “This New Day” as we’ve previously reported – no idea why we decided to change it now! The album IS out today, so go grab it from their website.

Douga: Kids of Tomorrow

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 04/08/2014 - 14:00


Manchester band DOUGA are about to release their debut LP, The Silent Well on the 19th of May via Do Make Merge Records.

Named after a childhood nickname given by his parents to founder, frontman, and former Plank! drummer Johnny Winbolt-Lewis, Douga recorded their album (sans vocals) at 80 Hertz studio with George Atkins, although the bulk of the record was recorded at BlueSCI – a service and space set up in Trafford, Manchester, for people who suffer from psychological and emotional distress. Winbolt-Lewis volunteers there and as such many of the sensitivities of those he comes into contact with have indirectly rubbed off on the record’s own reflective, deeply thoughtful resonance.

You can find the direct link to all of this below under the ‘Free Comp’ link as well as a lot of great artists featured by the Fanzine/mixtape ‘label’ – Verbal Rocket – based in North Yorkshire, England.

The bandstand’s full in the little dive that seems to draw crowds week in and week out. Royal Southern Brotherhood, Michael Bram, Sweet Tea Jubilee, Nick Moss, and Victor Wainwright & The WildRoots are just some of the great blues artists that help fill the hour. That hour brings a variety of blues you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. And, of course, it’s another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 475th Roadhouse.

Although they spend nearly every waking hour working with some of their favorite bands – Frozen Folk, Everyone Is Dirty, Halcyonaire and Taxes, to name a few – they still found time to create a new project for themselves.

Edinburgh Man #161

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 04/03/2014 - 19:31

That moody photo there is tonight’s atmospheric podcasting station. It feels strange to be starting the podcast when it’s (almost) still light outside. Hooray for daylight saving time.

I must apologies yet again for 1) a croaky throat and coughing which resulted in more music and less chat, and 2) it not being a live podcast again. This week the lack of liveliness has nothing to do with Edinburgh Man Junior’s sleeping patterns, rather the actions of my new evil broadband provider. The bastards.
