Fury Things: Matter

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 04/05/2014 - 14:00

Fury ThingsOutside of their 2012 and 2013 EP’s Minneapolis indie rock band Fury Things released a stand-out single on the Verbal Rocket Compilation #9, Abrasive Vignettes. This track actually came out in July of last year, the group being featured alongside about 20+ other bands.

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 band influences cited include other favorites such as Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Foo Fighters and Superchunk – definitely a stellar list.

While checking in with the band we also noticed they have a brand new single out entitled “Money’s Dumb”, released through Ecstattic Studio. Be sure to check this out as well in addition to all the goodness below!

Roadhouse 475

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 04/05/2014 - 04:08
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.

bed.: Bother

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 04/04/2014 - 11:00

bed.bed. is the new music project from Alex Haager and Sierra Frost. In late 2013, the duo quit their jobs and escaped their lives in San Francisco and headed north to Portland, Oregon to start Breakup Records. 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.

SnC 411 – Speakeasy Vintage

Suffolk And Cool - Wed, 04/02/2014 - 16:47
Electro vintage

A slice of the Speakeasy Sounds this week.

An enforced variation from the usual show (whatever that may be) this week, caused by my being laid up for the past few days with an infection in one of my lungs. I don’t think I’ve ever coughed so much but you should check my six-pack – OK, maybe not.

The upshot is that I’ve had no chance to trawl through the couple of hundred submissions that came in this week so they’ll be deferred until next week, when the competition for a slot will be even hotter!

This week we’re going to revisit an album that we mentioned back at the beginning of January from the Montreal based Speakeasy Electro Swing team which was founded in 2010 by DJ’s Eliazar, Don Mescal, and Khalil. They have been on the forefront of introducing the Electro Swing sound all across North America, and brought the Speakeasy Electro Swing Vol 1 compilation to fruition last spring to help on the journey.

800140DJ Eliazar is the founder of the Speakeasy Electro Swing nights in Montreal, which have now spread all over the world with Speakeasy nights happening in NYC, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Austin, Houston, Mexico City, Oklahoma City, Oslo, Barcelona, and Leeds.

In January we heard tracks from Speakeasy Electro Swing Vol. 1 This time we’re moving on to The Electro Vintage Sounds of the Speakeasy  Vol 2 which DJ Eliazar has compiled and which you can download complete or track by track quite free from Bandcamp at

All the info you need from the main site

800107As we constanly evolve and discover new things in life, Volume 2 is on the Electro Vintage theme, which includes Electro Blues, Gospel, and Soul to add to our love of Electro Swing.  Many artists are criss-crossing genre lines all the time, and as most of us are in love with all forms of old music, why not rework all the styles into a melange of fun.  After attending Jazzfest and Bluesfest in Chicago throughout my youth, there has always been a love for these styles of music in my veins.

We have called up some of the crew from the last compilation, and also invited many new faces whose tunes have been pumping out of speakers as I have been touring around a fair bit spreading the word of Electro Swing across North America and beyond.  We hope you support them and buy their music, as all of us are doing this for the love of music, and usually are always broke because of it.  Heck, I even have to pay 2 cents per DL of the album, but it is worth it to spread the toons, and hopefully you can help us out by supporting us by attending our shows, buying other music and merch, or donating to the cause.

Enjoy the day for all its potential, and dance more often, it always makes you feel better:)

Man of Constant Sorrow – Mr Jennings (Richmond VA, USA)



Shake Your Hips – Warp9 & Essex Groove (Delémont, Switzerland)

Sidewalk Diamonds: Not ‘Til I’m Safe Again

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 14:00

Sidewalk DiamondsWestern Australia band – Sidewalk Diamonds – have just released their new single “Not ‘Til I’m Safe Again” – the first song in a four-part collection due to be completed sometime this year. Apparently each release will be available as a free download, alongside a limited-edition hand numbered postcard with original artwork by singer/songwriter Damien Goerke.

The new single follows on the hard work and live dates which have refined the band’s sound since releasing their debut EP “Every Season Inside” in 2012. The single is also accompanied by a video filmed in the suburbs of their hometown of Perth, which they’ve referred to as the most isolated city in the world. We love this standout new single and video, and hope you are able to drop in and bookmark at least one of the social sites below after checking out the media goodness.
