Dave’s Lounge #295: Two Halves

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 10/10/2014 - 12:54

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #295Back in its early days, Dave’s Lounge was a weekly show with about six songs per episode. This week’s mix might have been better served being two of those old shows. The first half of this show has a very different feel to it than the second half. Perhaps that just goes to show how versatile this music we call downtempo really is…

Trivial Shields: Precipice

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 10/10/2014 - 11:00

Trivial ShieldsWe featured Trivial Shields (the project of Christian Carpenter) twice before, now he’s released his EP Vassal States. He says of the EP: “After much protracted preparation, hesitation and self-vexation, Vassal States, the EP I wrote and recorded while living and teaching English in Istanbul, is finally available for your listening enjoyment. Vassal States, is a concise, experimental pop album, tinged with sprinkles of electronica and finished with a heavy dose of existentialist culture-shock. The attached YouTube link is a trailer for the album that explains it’s creation further.”

It was written & Recorded in Istanbul Jan – Jun 2013, mixed in Early Winter 2014 by Jake Birch & Christian Carpenter, and released 23 September 2014.

Thalassocracy: Shimensoka

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 10/09/2014 - 14:00

ThalassocracyWe recently had the pleasure of running into today’s featured track over at soundcloud after diving through multiple releases, getting stopped in our tracks with Shimensoka. The name of the song looks to translate to something along the lines of being surrounded by adversaries and thus isolated in a hostile situation.

The group that released the song, Thalassocracy is comprised of Jake May and Lloyd King who hit it out of the park with the single.  It contains a crunchy sludged out guitar line that creates a great visceral feel throughout and even pushed me into revisiting some of good days of old DGC releases and yes, even the ladies of L7. The single was released by the Pizza Club via Art is Hard Records which you can quickly sign up for at the following link.

Thalassocracy will be performing live at Brighton’s Indietro Secret Festival in the UK on October 26th.

Edinburgh Man #180

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 19:23

Incredibility I went to a gig this week. Alec from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah played at Matthew from Song, by Toad’s house on Friday night. And it was a great gig. That’s the photo I accidentally took on the bus through town on the way back home. Soaking wet and fortified by Icelandic white beer. No, I don’t know either.

On today’s podcast most of the tracks seem to be a few years old, including THAT song by Beat Happening, a track from the second CYHSY album, and tracks from I Believe in Sunshine and The Also-Bands. Those last two being bands I know (or knew) nothing about.

There’s also some rambling chat. And a promise that the podcast will return to a regularly scheduled live slot at 8pm on Thursday nights as of next week!

Dave McPherson: Nothing is Enough

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

Dave McPhersonFollowing his previous two albums, The Hardship Diaries and Dreamoirs, UK artist Dave McPherson returns with his third album Journal Of A Journey Buoy, which arrives in a little under a month. The single Nothing is Enough is a stirring and exemplary slice of indie folk, that will no doubt send a lot of people looking into his earlier material. While you may have to wait just a little while longer for more, the good news is that the new album looks to have its official release in a little under a month on 3rd November 2014 via Pledge Music.

David will be on tour performing shows across the UK to coincide with the release of Journal of a Journey Buoy, which you can check out the dates for here. In addition, make sure to check out the embed below of his excellent video for Kingdom from last years album, Dreamoirs.

KiravellToday’s Dose is a single from the Vaudevellia collection by San Diego based Meniyka Kiravell, and is due to be released Oct 15, 2014.

Nic Treadwell is Missing!

Homegrown Podcast - Sun, 10/05/2014 - 23:09

Hi, my name is Nigel Rooke. I am a long Tim friend of Nic Treadwell. Three days ago Nic went missing from his home in Rowley Regis. I took the attached photo of Nic last week when we had a beer together. He seemed ok but his last words to me, "I've really had enough Nige..." Have left a chill in my bones. Admittedly he spoke these words in answer to me offering him a pork scratching but there you go.

I kno Nic was making plans to re-start his podcasting career, which makes his disappearance all the more tragic.

Please help me find my friend. Share this photo on Twitter and Facebook by using the #whereistreadwell 

And above all keep him in your prayers.
