The Bay Rays: New Home

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 05/15/2016 - 12:00
The Bay Rays Garage rock outfit The Bay Rays have announced the upcoming release of their second single New Home. Following on from the release of their hugely successful debut single Four Walls, which caught the attention of tastemakers online and received support from the likes of Annie Mac, Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens, the punk trio’s next release is another blistering burst of rock n’ roll sure to win them many plaudits.

Comprising of Harry Nicoll (vocals/guitar), Maxwell Oakley (drums) and Anthus Davis (bass), the band formed in the autumn of 2015 and developed a formidable live set, having already supported fellow Kent band Slaves at the end of last year.

Their performances caught the attention of producer Jolyon Thomas (Slaves, Daughter) at the start of 2016 and led to the band recording first releases Four Walls and New Home with him before heading out on a series of tour dates, with their single launch party taking place at The Sussex Arms basement in Tunbridge Wells on 14th May.

The Bay Rays’ New Home will be released via the band’s own label East Wing Records on 27th May. [via Super cat PR]

Roadhouse 585

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 05/14/2016 - 22:54
This edition of The Roadhouse comprises sets of varied themes - a set of contemporary blues, a set of blues rock, some killer soul blues, and a set that leans more toward the acoustic. Tweed Funk, The Kaz Hawkins Band, Moreland & Arbuckle, The James Hunter Six, and Matt Andersen make up the big pieces of the puzzle, but the small pieces really pull it all together. It's an hour of varied themes in this edition of The Roadhouse, and definitely another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Diamond Youth: Seperator

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 05/14/2016 - 12:00

Diamond YouthDiamond Youth is a rock group out of from Baltimore, Maryland with members from Chicago, Illinois and Richmond, Virginia.

The band started off by dropping a few EP’s in 2011, notably DMND, Don’t Lose Your Cool and a few releases between up to their first LP this past year, Nothing Matters. If you like today’s featured song, can pick up the EP Orange through Top Shelf Records and we’re featuring the accompanying video to the title track below, all of which originally released in 2013. We highly recommend anything you can get your hands on through their BC link, as they’ve released some very solid material up through the past year.

We wanted to showcase one of our favorite tracks here first, of course.

Jinn Grin: The Answer

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 05/13/2016 - 12:00
Jinn Grin What’s the point of going solo? A musical polymath versed in jazz studies and Madlib beats, Doug Stuart has spent the last several years etched deep into the grooves of some of the Bay Area’s funkiest ensembles, playing bass for The California Honeydrops, Bells Atlas, hundreds of jazz combos, session work, and most recently as keyboardist for Astronauts, etc. on their national tours accompanying Toro y Moi. Jinn Grin is his own adventure, though. Composed and produced by Stuart alone from start to finish, it’s the first time this artist has taken a step back from a rigorous gigging and touring schedule to offer his own, unfiltered musical expression. “The Answer” premiered May 10 on the Bandcamp weekly; with the EP set to release June 14.

Dave’s Lounge On The Radio #5: This Is A Recording

Dave's Lounge - Thu, 05/12/2016 - 21:09

Dave's Lounge on WHUPThis week’s show was pre-recorded, in large part because last Sunday was Mother’s Day, and I wanted to spend the afternoon with my mom. The second hour of this show contains my live fusion mix from the 2015 Tobacco Road Blues Exchange, which I’ve posted to Mixcloud before — click here to stream it — but I’m unable to include it in the podcast feed because that mix contains some major label music. (Mixcloud and WHUP have blanket licenses for that sort of thing. I don’t.)

I’ll be back in the studio this Sunday, so tune in at 3:00 PM ET, 8:00 PM GMT at: http://whupfm.org/

Edinburgh Man #232

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 05/12/2016 - 18:22

Well, as experiments go this one didn’t work.

Firstly, let me apologise for the lack of podcasts for two weeks. I managed to sprain my neck, which doesn’t sound too bad except that it resulted in the worst headache I’ve ever had emanating from my neck and extending around my head non-stop for 10 days. Painkillers did nothing. All told it was pretty grim. And I missed lots of really interesting gigs. Dang.

Anyway, this morning Edinburgh Man Junior did his usual of waking up sometime between 5 and 6am singing the Imperial March, so I didn’t fancy recording a podcast late evening. So instead I decided to rope him into it and record it before he went to bed. Hence this week’s show basically consists of him being cheeky and saying how he hated each track. Well, actually he liked one track because it sounded like The Thermals, but all the dream-pop, that got a big thumbs down.

Spitting Image: Icon Alive

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 05/12/2016 - 12:00

Spitting ImageReno, Nevada punk stalwarts SPITTING IMAGE released their newest four track EP a year ago this past March, a solid effort anchored by the beautifully urgent track that also shares the name of the EP, Icon Alive. As I’m arriving in the area today from Southern California for a bit of a respite, I thought it would be appropriate to showcase one of our favorite punk efforts from the region.

For more tracks check the bands BC site below for the 2 track, Love on a Terror and their first solid four song EP, Valley Floor.

Trails and Ways: My Things

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 05/11/2016 - 12:00
Trails and Ways After a line-up change, Oakland-based Trails and Ways return with their new single My Things which we’re pleased to be able to bring you as today’s Dose. It’s the first single from their as-yet unnamed new album, to be released later in the summer.

Keith from the band writes: “Right after we toured Brazil last December, two of our founding members decided they wanted out of the crazy touring life and left the band. Ian and I kept on, quit our day jobs, & went all in on making a new album. There was no turning back; these songs felt crucial to me, like my best chance to wrestle with the selfishness and capitalism inside me.

“My Things” was the first song I wrote for the record, and it feels like the bridge to the rock n roll sound & spirit we’re heading towards.”

Sick/Sea: Mermaid

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 05/10/2016 - 12:00

Sick/SeaMcAllen Texas band SICK/SEA is an indie/rock/jazz trio fronted by singer Audrey Scott with instrumentation by Johnny Garza and Cameron Scott. Its nice to stumble across a great band close to where a few grandparents were married and a few relatives lived and taught some time ages ago in the 20s-60s in Hidalgo Co. The five-track EP, Moral Compass is a solid effort and it was hard to pick just one song to introduce you to, but this one really stood out. Other favorites included the song Robot and the fifth track, Blinked.

The band is back in the studio apparently working on a new album. You can get the latest updates thorugh their FB page, which has all the links to their photo streams. The video for another track off the release, Robots, is posted further below, and a video for Blinked is floating around over on YouTube.

Amaroun: The Fear

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 05/09/2016 - 12:00
Amaroun Alt-folk singer-songwriter Amaroun has announced the upcoming release of her second single The Fear. The emerging artist’s latest effort follows her extremely successful debut single Bedbugs, with her exquisite voice and distinctive sound attracting extensive press coverage including a place in Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist.

With nods to the likes of Beck, Eels and Sharon Van Etten evident in her music, Amaroun’s talent has been very clear from a young age, and her awareness of her sound from a technological and sonic point of view emphasises the Northamptonshire [UK] act’s unquestioned ability. [via Super Cat PR]
