Dave’s Lounge #306: Calm In The Storm

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 04/10/2015 - 12:52

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #306As the rain fell and the thunder shook the sky, I took a moment to reflect on Dave’s Lounge turning ten years old very soon. I’m starting to put together the 10th anniversary mix now, which will be released as show #308 on May 8. Once upon a time, I envisioned the 10th anniversary as being a big live concert with a bunch of my favorite artists from over the years. Alas, I asked a girl to marry me, so I don’t have the money to put into putting on a show right now.

Still, I’ve got plenty of great new music for you this week. Our old friends Dive Index have a new video for their latest single, which you can watch here. Plus, our pals at Soulection have a new EP from a teenage wunderkind that you really need to hear…

The Peeks: Moving Pictures

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 04/10/2015 - 12:00
The Peeks “Led by songsmith Fraser Henry, The Peeks are a folk-rock trio from the sleepy Melbourne suburb of Williamstown. With a sound that is constantly evolving, the group tap into a studied pool of influences – from Fleet Foxes and Crowded House, to Jake Bugg and Ben Howard – and boast a live show that is visceral at one moment and delicate the next.” [bio]

Edinburgh Man #203

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 04/09/2015 - 18:55

So last night I went to see Tigercats, Plastic Animals, and Fever Dream at Henry’s Cellar Bar. It was the first standing up gig I’ve been at all year! I was going to go out again tonight and see Stanley Brinks and Freschard, but more than 14 hours of standing yesterday seems to have had an adverse reaction on this old man’s back.

However, earlier on today, before I’d decided to spend this evening lying down rather than tapping my foot to French anti-folk, I recorded this podcast as I walked to work. Yep – it’s one of those outside broadcasts recording on an iPhone!

Beth Bombara: Promised Land

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 04/09/2015 - 12:00

Beth BombaraThe latest inspired single “Promised Land” from St. Louis-based Americana artist Beth Bombara was issued recently on March 5th. It’s the first soulful and spirited effort off her forthcoming self-titled LP, officially delivering on June 23.

Of the song Bombara has stated, “I started writing this song at a point where a lot of things in my life were uncertain. I was just standing on the edge of a dark abyss, being afraid to jump but knowing I needed to take a leap of faith to get to the other side. Those leaps into the unknown are a little easier when you have someone to jump with you. The ‘promised land’ is an idea of continually striving towards that place of safety and happiness. We’re reaching for whatever it is we’ve been told will satisfy us. Contentment, security, spiritual peace, the American Dream, you name it. The idea is out there out there, and we keep searching for it.

Edinburgh Man #202

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 19:19

On tonight’s podcast:

1) I use a flimsy looking iPad stand – let’s hope it doesn’t fall over halfway through with “hilarious” consequences.

2) Edinburgh Man Junior sings random lyrics to “The Farmers in the Dell” loudly from the other room. No doubt this isn’t picked up by the microphone and you probably assume it’s all in my head.

3) I have notes! On paper! And I manage to get even more confused as a result.

4) I summarily dismiss the talents of the creator of one of the seminal TV shows of the last century because of the way he ate a sandwich.

Alphabetical: Winter

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 04/07/2015 - 12:00

AlphabeticalFrench indie pop band Alphabetical hail from Paris, a talented five piece group who’ve reportedly been around since 2012.

At the beginning of 2014 in January they released the six song EP, Rusted Gold, which you can pick up over at their Bandcamp site below. We first heard of them not too long ago on Twitter while snooping around for recommendations. A post there caught our attention about their free EP, and we quickly rushed over to check it out, immediately loving all six tracks, especially the feature, ‘Winter’. Another great track via video follows further below.

Problem Daughter: The Power is in My Name

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 12:00

Problem DaughterNon-profit DIY punk rock fanzine RAZORCAKE just last month released their first compilation under the ‘Tear a Cognita’ banner, a series of regional music compilations put together by active participants of the community they’re repping.

The first effort is from Salt Lake City, Utah. The fanzine describes the scene there as:

“a small and tightly-knit punk scene of diverse bands and personalities. Each band is starkly different than the next, creating a standard of well-attended and unpredictable shows. Within the past couple years their community has grown more supportive and inclusive than ever”

Tear a Cognita #1 was released on the 25th of March and we’ve chosen one of thirteen great tracks as a sample. Check out more from this band and grab the entire compilation below as a free download!
