The eight songs on Queen City: Volume One attempt to create a map of songs for Toronto arising out of specific sites within the city (Leslie Spit, Prince Edward Viaduct, Toronto Dominion Centre), weaving together history, mythology, and personal reflection into a dream-like cinematic narrative.
The title, ‘Queen City’ refers to one of several monikers that Toronto has gone by since its foundation in the early 19th century. And yet the city shares this title with many other places throughout North America making it general and specific at the same time. Toronto serves as a backdrop for universal human emotions (love, death and longing) and Queen City: Volume One is a reminder that each of us has similar dreams and desires, no matter the location.
We’re very excited here at Insomnia that our favorites Ketch Harbour have another solid release out, so please help us spread the word by sharing a few links below.Download 1992

Thank you for continuing to support the independent artists in 2013 by listening, feeding back and buying their music.
Hailing from Elgin in the north east of Scotland, His Name Is Codeine are releasing their album The Only Truth Is Music on 30th May.
“Starting as a trio of Lyn Ralph (vocals, bass, drum looper), Marc Roy (guitar, vocals) and Mark Simpson (guitar, vocals) in 2010, and adding in 2013 drummer Stu Russell, as well as Elizabeth Maycox (percussion, keys, drones) and Ian Dickson (guitars) to bolster the live sound. Slowly gaining an underground following through early releases Before The Apple Fell and Shoot To Kill, His Name Is Codeine spent 2012 recording their debut album, titled The Only Truth Is Music… because it is.”

Nick Tann has been on the show before, but we asked him to come on to contribute to our discussion about independent music and he gladly accepted. Oh yeah, and he just put up his own direct-to-fan store on his website which is a great model for other musicians to follow.
Nick plays live one of my favourite songs of his (spoiler alert: it’s “How Do You Sleep?”) He also brought some single along with him and we talked about what he’s been up to, discussed independent music and even had some questions from the chatroom.

Ah non, non ! Pas de panique ! Ça n’est pas à vous que je dis au revoir ! C’est à Bordeaux. Dans quelques jours je vais charger la voiture et partir en direction de la Suisse pour quelques années. Dès dimanche prochain les épisodes seront produit de l’autre coté de la frontière.
Enfin normalement, si mon matériel arrive en bon état, et si j’ai le temps de tout installer. Ça risque d’être un peu tendu quand même, mais on va tout faire pour que l’épisode soit publié dimanche. En revanche, ça sera peut-être dans l’après-midi plutôt que le matin.
Mais en attendant, voici l’édition de la semaine, bonne écoute et bonne semaine !

April’s installment of Discovery 2 was a smoking gig – if you didn’t make it down you’ll enjoy listening to the live sets and interview from each of the artists, presented by Claire Rozario. The show features indie punk from Carlito who recently supported the Palma Violets, Cortes an energetic London-based rock band, the fabulous Zemmy Momoh who’s sound is somewhere between Sia, Lauren Hill and Imogen Heap and Portsmouth’s finest new singer/songwriter Luke Ferre.
THE WEST, a female fronted group from Los Angeles, CA have released a new single, ‘Wild Hearts’ after about five months of working on tracks with producer DJ Schwartz. Their goal is a possible new album and music video before Summer hits.
Wild Hearts is a great anthemic single, a promising debut for this relatively new group. Give them your support at any of the links below.Download Wild Hearts

No proper podcast this week. @doctor_nic is away for a couple of days so it’s just Edinburgh Man Junior and Edinburgh Man Senior in the house. Apart from the fact I’m going to be run ragged by the time podcast hour comes around, there is also the chance that the younger of us may wake up during the recording, which could result in a rather curtailed episode.
So, rather than leave you with nothing I thought I’d bash 8 episodes of April’s “30 days of biking” Edinburgh Man Junior podcasts together. If you already listened to these, then you can probably skip this, but if you missed them prepare yourself for bad quality field recordings and rambling beyond belief.

It’s early May 2013 and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight is back with six acoustic songs from Merseyside and a little further afield. We’re particularly proud to be supporting the Michael Molloy and Alex Evans song Rise and Fall in its attempt to crash the charts this weekend. Plus, we’ve got our first ever song in Welsh, and a cracking live version of Cardiff Bay by Martyn Joseph (with a little help from Show of Hands!).
If you’re an acoustic musician from Greater Merseyside, or from outside the area but play on the Liverpool scene, then feel free to send us your music for future shows. We can’t promise we’ll be able to play everything that’s sent to us, but we will listen to every track.
