Sorren Maclean: Rows & Rows of Boxes (acoustic)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 13:00

Sorren MacLeanScottish indie-folk artist, Sorren Maclean has just announced the release of his forthcoming EP, Way Back Home, arriving next month on 9th March 2015 via Middle Of Nowhere Recordings.

Growing up on the Isle of Mull, Sorren began playing in bands from age 11. He recorded his debut album, Island, with Colin MacIntyre of Mull Historical Society, which led on to Idlewild singer Roddy Woomble inviting Sorren to co-write his second solo album, The Impossible Song and Other Songs, and they’ve been working together ever since.

As well as playing and touring with a few local groups, Sorren also produces albums and works and records with a composer for soundtracks to a few different television shows. Sorren’s talent has seen him transcend his own musical projects, having performed on over 20 albums, including upcoming releases from Nashville singer Eliza Lynn and one of Scotlands finest exports, King Creosote whom he is supporting currently on tour.

The Woodlands: Carousel

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 13:00

The WoodlandsIt has been a few months since The Woodlands released their album Gems And Bones (we featured the title track in July 2014), and now Samuel + Hannah have released a new EP called Secret Language.

They say of it: “Secret Language is essentially a love album — dreams of wanting love, exhilaration of finding love, despair of losing love. A secret language instinctively known, wistful in its shimmering, and elusive in its capture.

“Built on a foundation of acoustic warmth, the songs also have a smattering of vintage synths, surprising percussion, guy/girl harmonies, and even a cameo appearance by this beast of a musical time machine on the song Beating Hearts Ablaze.” [see picture below]

Edinburgh Man #191

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 21:15

It’s the first rambling podcast of the year… and I’m not ready for it. Firstly I couldn’t even find the cables that would allow me to broadcast live. And secondly I had at least four, maybe five, abortive attempts at starting the show. We got there in the end though.

I also have a new years resolution – if I don’t have anything interesting to say I’m just going to play some music. How did I get on so far? You decide.

The Hourglass Cats: Too Damn Rude

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 13:00

The Hourglass CatsIt’s nice to hear another good new band bust out some tight ska and reggae-infused rock, especially when it comes from the nearby Arizona scene. The Hourglass Cats (THC) are from Phoenix, AZ and formed there not too long ago in 2012, apparently with members from all over the place: Germany, NY, CA, and of course Arizona. The group has already made quite an impact in that time-frame with their high energy act, sharing the stage with established groups such as Allen Stone, Slightly Stoopid, Dispatch, Thievery Corporation, Passion Pit and more.

They sent over a few tracks and apparently have created their own unique sound, spanning all the way from desert-driven rock to latin inspired ska/reggae and even Hip Hop. We’ve embedded a great video for an earlier release below from their YouTube page which we think you’ll like. We recommend bookmarking the social sites below for the latest news and to hit up Bandcamp or Soundcloud for all the newest sounds being put out.

Table People: Hometown

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 02/04/2015 - 13:00
Table People “Table People came together in Seoul via Craigslist, birthday parties, and late-night drinking sessions. Friends compared them to the Feelies, the Clean, and the Fall, which suited Table People just fine even though they never approach a song with such specific intentions. Table People’s only aim is to distill the first swig of a cold beer or maybe the rush of riding a bike down a steep hill.” [bio via Loose Union]

Their debut release was an EP in 2012, today’s Dose is one of a pair of tracks they just released.

Ki:Theory: Open Wound (ODESZA remix)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 02/03/2015 - 13:00

TheoryKi:Theory (“Key Theory”) is the alias for Richmond, Virginia based recording artist and producer, Joel Burleson, with his featured track here today remixed by Seattle’s ODESZA – a duo comprised of Harrison Mills & Clayton Knight.

The track delivers quite a nice array of sounds, the electronic palette ever-changing in this beautiful soundscape that is just impossible to capture these days with less traditional instruments. Ki:Theory’s growing success has been seen in the multitude of works and remixes that he’s been involved in, several of which are listed below. If you are unfamiliar with his work, this is definitely an interesting read:

Ki:Theory’s most recent double album, KITTY HAWK Deluxe (Kringer Records), featured a version of Ben E. King’s hit “Stand By Me” that exploded on the scene in a 2014 Super Bowl ad and episode of FOX’s hit TV show, the Following starring Kevin Bacon. “Stand By Me” was also featured in the movie trailer for Brick Mansions starring Paul Walker and RZA along with TV spots for Marco Polo (Netflix), Dallas (TNT), and Bates Motel (A&E). Ki:Theory has also done commissioned remixes for Daft Punk/Tron: Legacy, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age, Cypress Hill, Rob Zombie, Odesza, Unkle, Rodrigo y Gabriela with Hans Zimmer and Brazilian Girls amongst others. Ki:Theory’s remix for Daft Punk’s “The Son Of Flynn” for Tron: Legacy was featured on the official remix album, Tron Legacy R3C0NF1GUR3D.

Best of all, Ki:Theory original releases are available as a free download at his website below and he’s got a few tourdates still in the mix for those of you in the eastern part of the US!

Gabriel Brox: Bag Of Bones

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 02/02/2015 - 13:00
Gabriel Brox Gabriel Brox is a UK based artist who will be releasing his album Remerciements in June. Today’s Dose is a trail for the album.

“The second song by Gabriel Brox has kind of an alt-Bluegrass feel. Again there is a solid groove and the spoken vocals take me to a place somewhere between JJ Cale, Ray Wiley Hubbard and Johnny Cash. That’s a great place to be if not a little unnerving”.

Edd Saffell: Off My List

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 02/01/2015 - 13:00

Edd SaffellDerby/Leeds, UK singer-songwriter EDD SAFFELL has just released his new single, Off My List, a beautiful rapid-fire acoustic fueled indie-pop ballad with folk stylings. The song is possibly a look at the silver linings of a cracked relationship, although open to interpretation. It’s quite a nice first effort with great guitar flourishes, and inspired piano and horn filled accompaniment mixed throughout.

Edd’s live shows feature a full backing band, allowing him to really explore and expand on his musical style. He claims the music is inspired by his Irish heritage but he also added a modern approach to the more traditional folk sound. To date, he has been featured on BBC introducing across the UK and played on the daytime schedule of BBC Radio Leeds.
