Duologue: Forest

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 07/11/2014 - 11:00

DuologueLondon band Duologue are releasing their second album Never Get Lost on September 9th, 2014. It arrives alongside a new single, Drag & Drop, released on the same date. To coincide with the album’s announcement, Duologue have released new track Forest which is today’s Dose.

This new record finds the quintet in uncompromising form, building ambitiously on their brooding electronic sound from 2013′s Song & Dance LP, and nurturing it into somewhere that references their broad range of influences, but finding them come together in a unique and unexpected place. The band released a much blogged about EP Memex in Spring of 2014. [via Big Hassle Media]

Edinburgh Man #173

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 19:44

I’m still under the weather this week, but like the trouper that I am I’ve done gone and made one of these podcast shows for you, albeit with a bit less chat than normal.

I couldn’t resist putting that picture up there. I know that it’s two weeks in a row a train themed image has been used for the podcast artwork, but last weekend we took Edinburgh Man Junior to the steam railway at Bo’ness. I was rather sceptical but it was actually a great day out – even if the steam train was broken. Instead there was this great old British Rail diesel train which took me back to my formative years when we had a nationalised rail service in the UK. Ah, the 70′s.

In music news, Edinburgh’s Meursault will soon be no more. Sob. Hence we start today’s show not with rambling by your good host, but their wonderful “One Day This’ll All Be Fields”.

Edinburgh Man #173 by Edinburgh Man on Mixcloud

Dream Boat: Escape

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 14:00

Dream BoatAthens, Georgia based psychedelic indie pop group DREAM BOAT is about to release their second album, THE ROSE EXPLODES on September 16th via Cloud Recordings + ARROWHAWK. We invite you to take a listen to one of the first offerings, the lush and “medicinal” soundcape found in the second track, Escape.

The band began as a collaboration between Page Campbell and Dan Donahue, two artists/musicians born on the same Aquarian day. Together, they bridge several generations of Athens’ psychedelic collectives and musical freak families. With engineer/musician Suny Lyons, Page and Dan weave the sounds of many amazing players, such as Scott Spillane (Neutral Milk Hotel), John Fernandes (Olivia Tremor Control), Andrew Reiger (Elf Power), Claire Campbell (Hope for Agoldensummer), James Husband (Of Montreal), and Kris Deason (Dark Meat).

Also visual artists, Page and Dan have both designed art for their own bands as well as others’. Dan’s artwork, video, and visuals have been used by countless groups like MGMT, Belle and Sebastian, Pavement and R.E.M. The cover design of Dan’s well received art book Ultraviolet, a history and collection of black light posters, was recently used by Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, for the upcoming Electric Wurms album cover. With visual art always in mind, Dream Boat’s live shows include color-saturated psychedelic projections which reflect the cosmic, transcendent and emotive qualities that live in this music.

Lux LisbonWe recently saw an announcement that a favorite artist out of London, LUX LISBON, had released some new material. Life quickly swept us away in its crazy e-mail deluge and we thankfully ran into a stray Twitter post a few days back redirecting us to this fine effort.

The London band comes via Nottingham and Newcastle, influenced by bands such as Dog is Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Bloc Party, Fleetwood Mac and The Killers. You can check out a variety of excellent releases at the Bandcamp link below as well as a handful of tracks to download for free if you so choose.

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 07/05/2014 - 14:00

This is a really solid release which we happened to run into while doing our Twitter music search duties, subsquently having a hard time on settling down on a favorite track. The entire release shines from the opener ‘Revenge Comedy’ to ‘You Can’t Go Home Again’, and the perfect title track named after the release, ‘Civilized City’.

You can find more from the entire album, currently under the name-your-price listing over at Bandcamp below – along with other releases from this great group including last years EP, ‘Heartbreakology’.

Dave’s Lounge #288: Bands Gone But Not Forgotten

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 13:36

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #288It’s been about five years and 132 episodes since I’ve done a defunct bands episode, so it’s about time we dusted off some of these old recordings and put them back in your ears again. This playlist contains songs from bands that are no longer active, but for a moment, they grabbed my ear, and some of them continue to do so today.

It’s the reason we record music in the first place — we want to remind our lonely little planet that we were here, and this is what we created. Some creations last long after the creators have left us. Perhaps some of these creations might do the same.

This episode aired on BeatLounge Radio on June 22, although this version is a little bit different — primarily because of this, which you’ll hear more of on Dave’s Lounge #289…

Silent Kid: Long Way Out

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 12:39

Silent KidSilent Kid is the home recording project of Berlin-based artist Sebastian Nehen. An accomplished musician and songwriter, he has toured Europe and Asia with popular German acts such as Masha Qrella and It’s A Musical.

Nehen crafted this immaculate collection of pop songs at his home in Berlin; performing, recording mixing and mastering the entire thing by himself. As life took hold, as it sometimes does, the songs then lay dormant in an old computer in his Moabit basement for ten years; a momentarily forgotten set of music, collecting dust.

A decade after the fact, these songs prove to be timelessly relevant, beautifully devised pop treasures. The follow-up to this EP is nearly finished and will be released this fall. [bio via Breakup Records]
