Twin Within: Bernie

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 07/05/2015 - 12:00

Twin WithinTwin Within consists of Steve McKay and Alex Samaras out of Hamilton, Ontario (CAN). Together their voices have a natural affinity beyond technical ability, and recall classic duos like Righteous Brothers, Walker Brothers, or Simon & Garfunkel.

Bernie comes from a place of discovery, with Steve McKay relaying, “Writing melodies and coming up with arrangements comes really easy to me, but writing lyrics is tough. When we were writing songs for this record, I was listening to a lot of Elton John and thinking about that whole Bernie Taupin lyricist-partner thing. It’s like it would be so much easier if somebody else would write the lyrics for me and I could just hammer out the hooks”. Describing the writing process, he continues, “We were going for a bit of a James Taylor vibe with the arrangement – it’s just an acoustic guitar, tic-tac bass, piano and floor tom. We specifically recorded this with a classical music engineer, Kirk Starkey, with the hope that he might pull a little more out of the acoustic instruments and the Church where we recorded. I think he did a pretty good job”.

Their debut record “Horizontal Lines” is out July 10th on Hidden Pony Records.

Roadhouse 540

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 17:52
This edition of The Roadhouse came together as smoothly as a needle through silk, with a sound and feel to match. Wee Willie Walker, Jackie Payne, The Texas Horns, Tad Robinson, and Sugaray Rayford put together all the pieces necessary for another hour of the finest blues you've never heard, a facile hour of blues, in the 540th Roadhouse.

Sentinel: Counting Stars

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 12:00

SentinelThe new ten-song labor of love, “Points of Light” from San Francisco dream-pop three-piece SENTINEL arrived on June 2nd after a year-long effort of writing, recording, and mastering, which has really paid off.

The release comes at a great time close to the Summer Solstice and when there has been some really great planetary displays up in the sky during these warm summer nights. The album title and art aptly ties into the band’s album description on “how constellations in the stars are a form of connectedness to the universe. Like stars in these constellations, we are all individuals tied together by fate, love, struggle and loss to shape our stories, like shapes in the night sky.”

Sentinel keeps the mind actively dreaming across a number of exceptional tracks, with the rock solid instrumentation from Dennis and Billy and the lovely vocals of singer Tarabud helping tie it all together. Some of our favorites include the inspiring pop song, “Wonder Reeling”, a native american inspired wonder, “Yahmahnee”, the Freddy Jones-esque daydreaming riffs behind “Shiloh Sky”, with a special nod toward a blanket of stars dreamt up in our minds eye listening to the guitar-work on “Voices Say”.

You can pick up the outstanding new album through Bandcamp and CDbaby at the provided links below. It’s printed on Earth friendly packaging, featuring our favorite album art to date, and designed by their drummer, Billy.

Happy 4th to all our listeners here in the USA!

Dave’s Lounge #311: Fading Romance

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 07/03/2015 - 14:27

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #311This week, we dig into the "defunct bands" database and find a new entry. Data Romance‘s 2013 album "Other", which was played a lot on this show a couple years ago, is no longer in print. The label that released it, SQE Music, went out of business and pulled all of their music out of online music stores and off streaming sites — a damn shame, because that was a really good album. We’ll look back briefly on some of the music Ajay Bhattacharyya and Amy Kirkpatrick made and where they are now.

I’ve also added some extra music this week after having to pull a track from last week’s show. My submission pile is still a mile high and filled with way too much club-oriented music. I’m starting to wonder if I should just start a new podcast called "Dave’s House", what with all this house music I’m getting…

The Silhouette Era: Exhale

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 12:00

The Silhouette EraThe Silhouette Era’s second full-length, “Beacons” practically defines Northern California’s own brand of surf pop; not that of hot summer nights, but of freezing dawns and the sobering ennui that can only be found when you look, bleary-eyed out into an infinity of grey sky and ocean.

Carlos J Gonzalez is practiced in the art of saying goodbye. These ten tracks grapple with a whirlwind of death and heartbreak. Nothing could sweep through tragedy so sweetly as perfect melodies of wet guitars and Gonzalez’s subdued, airy vocals.

The record was produced by Jay Pellicci at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco. It will be out this month on Breakup Records.

Matthew and Me: Patterns (David Rowntree remix)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 06/30/2015 - 12:00

Matthew and MeMatthew and Me is a singer-songwriter from Devon, England who recently released his first single ‘Patterns‘ last November 10. Today’s featured track is a slightly more downtempo version remixed by David Rowntree, but equally as compelling.

You will definitely also want to check out the new single ‘Kitsune‘ at the Soundcloud link further below. It followed the release of ‘Patterns‘ in late 2014 and is one of the best tracks we’ve heard in 2015 thus far.

The songs were reportedly recorded during DIY sessions in the bands hometown of Totnes.

Broke Royals: This Time

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 06/29/2015 - 14:49
Broke RoyalsBroke Royals never intended to fuel a political revolution with their first release. For Philip Basnight and Colin Cross, The Luxury of Time Pt. I, embodies the familiar realization of early adulthood that time is both an abundant and precious commodity. But halfway across the world, as a military coup overcame Thailand’s people in May of 2014, its citizens heard Broke Royals’ debut single, About Time, through different, more harrowed ears. As the song’s soaring chorus and pounding drums unexpectedly and rapidly circulated online across the asian country, Basnight and Cross realized that what had begun as a personal musical undertaking between two friends was now something closer to universal.” [via GLG]

Inspired & the Sleep: Time Travel

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 06/28/2015 - 12:07
Inspired and the SleepInspired & the Sleep is an indie-pop outfit based in San Diego, California consisting of a revolving lineup surrounding singer-songwriter Max Greenhalgh & multi-instrumentalist Bryce Outcault. Focusing on rhythm and melody, Greenhalgh’s loop-based demos are rewoven with additional psychedelic/jazz threads to construct groove-centered pop songs. Determined on continuous reinvention, the band is moving towards a more refined and darker approach to arranging with polished production while retaining hints of Greenhalgh’s previous lo-fi ponderings.

“[…] The ‘Eyelid Kid’ EP is set to be out sometime in late 2015 following the consecutive release of a music video for each song. ” [band bio]
