Since there’ll be a new podcast tomorrow, I thought I’d better make sure the auto-publishing is working on WordPress!

If this appears after being auto-published at 19:25, the show should follow in the early hours of tomorrow without any manual intervention.

Stay tuned…..

AMPed Show #491

AMPed Weekly Show - Mon, 05/11/2015 - 04:00
Hosted this week by Matt Brier of Idiosyncratic Transmissions with music from Broad Beans, Spitfire, Great White Buffalo, Mech Wendigo, The House of Jed and madelyniris [powerpress] [caption id="amped-show-491" align="alignright" width="150"]host-logo AMPed hosted this week by Matt Brier of Idiosyncratic Transmissions[/caption]
  1. The Farmer by Broad Beans Submited by Rodrigo de Sá of Cowboy Cantor

    The artist of the month of May at Cowboy Cantor, Broad Beans, is a quartet of young musicians, all under 25. They have been rocking the most important music venues in the Azores islands for a long time. Now finally the band that is from the same island as Rodrigo have released their first full album. The Farmer reveals not only the excellent musical talent of each of them, as also the fun moments you can spend listening or attending a concert by Broad Beans.

  2. Fuel To Burn by Spitfire Submited by Ro of DarkCompass

    Picture yourself a dark basement, a place between wild mountains and the fjords of the western coast of Norway, the combination of an ancient Norwegian attitude, 70s classic rock and metal. During the WW-II legendary fighter Supermarine Spitfire ruled the sky in these areas, and today Spitfire are delivigering the same supersonic and fire-spitting goods!

  3. Detroit by Great White Buffalo Submited by Matt Brier of Idiosyncratic Transmissions

    Indie rockers Great White Buffalo are determined to bring back emotional intelligence to rock and roll. With heartfelt lyrics and hard played instruments this quartet from LA is out to win your heart. "Detroit" is a prime example of their work and is off of their EP Fangs.

  4. The Bait and The Trap by Mech Wendigo Submited by Ro of Made In The UK Show

    Mech Wendigo is the side project of Paul Terry of Cellarscape. This is departure from his usual Indie Rock/Pop feel, and is part of a soundtrack to a short movie, which Paul writes and records for a livivng.

  5. O Caligula by The House of Jed Submited by Stuart Morrison of Insomnia Radio

    The House of Jed is the solo project of Admiral Twin drummer Jarrod Gollihare. He records his alterna-pop-rock ditties about pretty girls, comet strikes and the end of the world (you know…the usual pop drivel) at his home studio, mostly on cloudy days.

  6. Ghost by madelyniris Submited by Dave & Caroline of The Bugcast

    "I write imperfect music and hope it lives inside your heart."

    That's what Maddy Munsell says about her music.

    This track is taken from madelyniris' 2014 EP "Adventures" which is available from her Bandcamp page on a name-your-price basis.

Professor Kliq: Wire & Flashing Lights

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 05/10/2015 - 12:00

Professor KliqThe original track by Chicago’s own Professor Kliq, “Plastic & Flashing Lights”, has been around for ages. He felt it could use a bit of a face lift and even a name change, in light of Patator Productions’ video, created by Victor Haegelin.

Raised in the west suburbs of Chicago, Professor Kliq (Mike Else) underwent a lengthy and profound evolution both musically and mentally. With a variety of names, (Sharp Harpsichord, Quaziteque, Kid Kranium, Professor K), he explored any kind of electronic music he developed an affinity for. With influences ranging from different trip-hop DJ’s like Krush, Shadow and Cam to more experimental and noise-based artists like Aphex Twin and Squarepusher, he combines these modern elements with those he learned from music theory and his upbringing on jazz as well as 80’s pop and electronic music.

Music has always been in his blood: His grandfather, Sir John, a vibraphone and piano player that played with names like Gene Krupa and Tony Bennett, and his uncle, John Jeffrey, jobbing pianist and bass player, doctor of Computer Sciences at Elmhurst college.

Professor Kliq has been making music since 1996 with his first Casio keyboard and a tape recorder. Slowly but surely, training himself to play piano by ear and developing full pieces, the dream maintains an everlasting becoming into reality.” –

He graduated from Columbia College Chicago in early 2012 and now produces full time.

Idyllic Music - Sat, 05/09/2015 - 20:00
This week we'll try to imagine the ends of the universe. It's one way to restore some perspective while your world is spinning around you. The vast emptiness of space, its cold, hollow expanse is the fact that we ignore while conjuring up tales of Death Stars and Restaurants. Taking a more expansive view are Rukirek, Dive Index, Jagoa, Me Zion Dread and Strad. I'm Jim Nye

Institute: Perpetual Ebb

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 05/09/2015 - 12:00

InstitutePolitically speaking, not much has changed about the way Institute exists as a band since signing to Sacred Bones. Having members in Glue, Wiccans, and Back to Back, all fellow stalwarts of the Texas punk scene, helps streamline the approach for them, as all of their bands operate from the same basic ethos. In fact, singer Moses Brown has said they’re only comfortable being on Sacred Bones because he considers the label “a punk label on steroids.” (A note from the label—“Drugs, yes. Steroids, usually no.”

For their boundary-smashing debut long-player, they’ve incorporated everything from acoustic guitars to proto-punk psych excursions, even stretching their songs out to Krautrock lengths when necessary. [via bio]

Dave’s Lounge #308: The 10th Anniversary Mix

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 12:47

Dave's Lounge 10th Anniversary Mix

It’s still hard to believe that I’ve been at this podcasting thing for ten years. It’s even harder to fathom how amazing it’s been. Thanks to Dave’s Lounge, I’ve been able to make new friends, meet and hear some immensely talented musicians, travel to places I might never have seen otherwise, and even get a side job as a blogger that managed to rid me of my credit card debt once and for all. Ultimately, though, I wouldn’t have been able to do any of this without all this great music, and certainly not without all of you out there encouraging me to keep this virtual place in our minds open. Thank you for all your support.

Compressing ten years of great music into a two-hour mix is practically impossible, but hey, what the hell? Let’s give it a try…

George Ezra: Budapest (Creange remix)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 05/07/2015 - 12:00

CreangeParisian producer Creange recently issued this nice danceable remixed version of George Ezra’s rising single, Budapest. We typically don’t post too many remixes, but loved the tropical injection of sounds which definitely makes this mix shine on top of the already steady soulful sounds of English artist George Ezra.

Check out more of Creange’s creations at his social sites below, including a link to get over to George Ezra’s page.
