Edinburgh Man #206

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Sun, 05/03/2015 - 19:48

Ahem. Look, in my defence I did say that the last podcast was going to be the last REGULARLY SCHEDULED podcast for a while. And it is, what? 9 or 10 days since the last one? So that’s irregular. Otherwise this is basically what you’ve come to expect. Rambling and music.

This time the rambling is from my new standing desk contraption – aka a chest of drawers with a half open drawer and strategically placed planks of wood. There is a chance the whole thing may collapse on top of me during the show.

Roadhouse 531

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 23:35
This edition of The Roadhouse requires no electricity - for the musicians, anyway. A full hour of acoustic blues is lead by Dom Flemons, Catfish Keith, South Memphis String Band, Kelly Joe Phelps, and The Little Brothers. Straight blues, country blues, rags, pre-war, post-war, some stuff that falls somewhere in-between - it's all acoustic in this edition. And, it's definitaly another hour of the finest blues you've never heard: the 531st Roadhouse.

Janelle Kroll: Numb

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 12:00

Janelle KrollIt’s a good day when you stumble across such a soulful track as the downtempo-laced ‘Numb’ by Janelle Kroll via Soundcloud’s explore feature. New York based songwriter Kroll is apparently best known for providing vocals to house legend Dennis Ferrer’s ‘Mind Ur Step’. Success followed topping charts on Beatport/Traxsource, also gathering some good radio placement. She is originally from the musically inclined city of Chicago, an honest and emotive vocalist who takes pride in the human connection found within her music.

‘Numb’ looks to possible be her newest single, a stirring effort, and by far one of the best we’ve heard thus far this year with great crossover potential. It was released a few short weeks back alongside her other excellent track ‘Sunny Days’. Now that she is based in NYC, new music from Janelle Kroll can reportedly be heard live in the flesh at venues like Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Bowl, the Lower East Side’s Pianos, Ella Lounge, and more.

Check her social links below for the latest news and possible tour dates.

Great Hare: Call Me Stupid

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 04/30/2015 - 12:00

Great HareGreat Hare is an indie rock quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden. Drummer Lars Olausson, singer and guitarist Kalle Mogren, guitarist Anders Holmström and bass player and producer Berne Randulv formed Great Hare a few years ago, after a long hiatus from music. They soon found a cramped loft and turned it into a simple rehearsal and recording studio, subsequently cranking out huge waves of sound. Due to repeated encounters with hares at significant life events, the band was dubbed ‘Great Hare‘ after the giver of life and creator of all things in native American mythology. The band had some more great insights to share about their songwriting process:

“We turn up and turn on the lights at night looking for melodies that want to be turned into songs. Places that exist for a few minutes, with clouds, storms and pockets of calm made of rhythmic low frequencies, pulsating notes and shimmering layers of guitars and vocals. The good ones arrive like waves hitting a beach or echoes of something submerged under the surface. We keep at those to find out how to capture them and put them to use again, like dreams that help you stay awake”

The new EP “Only the Birds” should be out fairly soon, and they’ve also got a new video up for the currently free track “A Faint Light” which looks to also be on the new forthcoming release.

Xuman: Blood Won’t Run

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 04/28/2015 - 12:00

XumanToday we’ve got a new track up by Xuman, a Moscow based indie pop band fronted by Alexander Xuman of Orlovo, Russia, including members Ilya Sosnitskiy and David Sagamonyants.

We picked out today’s feature “Blood Won’t Run” from deep within Xuman’s excellent second album – The Mask Gains Over Man – which was released on the 20th of March. This solid new LP is dedicated to social stereotypes problems and questions of the freedom of choice. The band also claims that “The Mask Gains Over Man album is an opinion on all the information field the band has been effected by.”
