Winter: Crazy

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 03/29/2015 - 12:00

WinterLA dreampop band Winter just last week had the opportunity to perform at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin and are also making quite a splash when they very recently released their first full length record “Supreme Blue Dream” via Lolipop Records. The LP was reportedly created through a coast to coast collaboration between band members Samira Winter and Nolan Eley, and it appears the two added a few extra musicians to round out their live sound when they were down in Texas.

In addition to this excellent track we’ve also included the great video for the earlier release of ‘Bedroom Philosophies’ found further below. You can find the rest of the tracks from “Supreme Blue Dream” at the respective Soundcloud and Bandcamp links.

Roadhouse 526

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 03/28/2015 - 22:29
There's a different set of instrumentation in this edition of The Roadhouse that you might not expect to hear in the blues. Around that, I've got Rhiannon Giddens, Doghouse Sam & His Magnatones, Chris Daniels & The Kings, JJ Grey & Mofro, and Tinsley Ellis - all waiting to take the tiny little bandstand. The stage may be tiny but the sound is huge - it's the sound of another hour of the finest blues you've never heard: the 526th Roadhouse.

Inlet Sound: Saturday

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 03/28/2015 - 12:00

Inlet SoundToronto, Canada indie pop band Inlet Sound is described as the musical convergence of passionate folk-rock spirit and atmospheric pop form. 2012 found the band surrounded by and tirelessly crafting ‘The Romantics’, their first full-length record, in cabins and churches with acclaimed producer Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep, Hey Rosetta!).

A year following the release the band offered up a special download on Bandcamp of ‘The Romantics’ (Special Edition) for free, a really solid album we highly recommend you add to your collection. You can check it out in its entirety at the respective link below.

We’ve embedded one of the band’s last cover tracks as well, a favorite by Canadian indie band, Wintersleep, namely “Weighty Ghost”.

Live Gig: Discovery 2 with Emily Capell, La Bette Blooms, Me and Deboe and Rich Stephenson

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 18:23


This edition of the Discovery 2 live podcast features live performances and interviews from the gig night back in October 2014. You’ll hear blues infected indie pop from Emily Capell, rising Hull band La Bête Blooms with their snarling vocals, distorted guitars and plenty of feedback, Me & Deboe who blend indie and folk, and Rich Stephenson, who puts on a great acoustic show with his percussionist.

More about the artists EMILY CAPELL

Emily Capell tells blues inflected, indiepop tales of life’s frustrations and elations. Whether she’s railing against the wrongs of the world, getting a little frisky or inventing a new dance craze,  Emily will pull you in and spin you round so quickly you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with dull generic boys with guitars. Her current  acoustic single Who Killed Smiley Culture / Plastic is available on Blang Records

“Probably the artist that Lily Allen wishes she was; alternative, witty, current and fresh.” – Sounds XP


Emily Capell performs with her band on this podcast – you’ll even hear a trombone!


Hull based 5 piece, La Bête Blooms release their debut EP this month produced by Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses). The tracks snarling vocals, distorted guitars and plenty of feedback accompany a ray energy that the band are so well knows for at live shows. Having Supported Jaws, Pinks and Nightflowers at the beginning of the year, as well as playing Tramlines Festivals and Freedom Festival, the AAA is part of the October UK tour. They are receiving radio support from BBC Introducing & Amazing Radio.

“Managing to carve their own niche in an increasingly crowded revivalist movement…this young band occupy an all-too-rare position in recognising those touchstones, without ever actually ‘borrowing’ from them.” – Jonathan Cridford, One & Other


A simple combination of two voices and two guitars make up ME AND DEBOE : a cocktail of infectious rhythms, haunting melodies and clever lyrics is the potent result.  Their growing reputation has taken their unique sound to nearly 500 gigs, radio performances and festivals both on an international stage and across the UK. They released the self titled debut EP in 2013, with the single I For You Gave making BBC 6 Music Fresh On The Net: Fresh Faves selection. They are currently  touring Canada and America and then return to the AAA to perform tracks from their new EP.


Born and raised on the rural Yorkshire coast, Rich Stephenson is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. His diverse musical career has seen him pen tracks for E4 Skins, write songs for Bollywood and international ad campaigns as well as support Mercury Music Prize winners The XX.  He’s done film music collaborations with Lemon Jelly, live sessions on Amazing Radio and festival appearances at Boardmasters,Beverley Folk and Wold Top Acoustic. He will be promoting a cassette on International Cassette Store day and releasing his debut  EP ‘I am Rich’ digitally at the end of October.

“Harmonies to die for… haunting arrangements and energetic live performances.” – Alan Raw, BBC Introducing

Broken Boy: She Said

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 12:00

Broken Boy

Scottish band, Broken Boy started up in 2013 when brothers Stewart and Cam began to write together after flirting with several separate musical projects. Initially, the ambition was to expand their sound into an Arcade Fire style six piece band, but they decided their sound was more suited to a stripped back three-piece indie vibe, and in 2015 the brothers joined forces with drummer Fraser Laing.

With the band fresh out the studio with Chem 19’s Paul Savage (Twilight Sad, Teenage Fanclub). Broken Boy have announced their forthcoming single Just To Leave You, releasing on 27th April 2015 via Canvas Records. They’ve apparently got a new video to join this on the way, but in the meantime check out this rocking single called “She Said” and the excellent accompanying video below, posted last February.

Live Gig: Discovery 2 with The Greasy Slicks, Kate Miller and Alex Hart

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 07:05

The Greasy Slicks

This episode from the archive features July 2014’s Discovery 2 showcase with full live sets and interviews from contemporary blues rock band The Greasy Slicks, fresh new singer Kate Miller with her band, and country pop singer songwriter Alex Hart.

More about the artists The Greasy Slicks The Greasy Slicks

The Greasy Slicks rocked the Archangel Basement, check out the podcast for their live set and interview.

They formed in 2012 through a mutual appreciation of traditional and contemporary blues rock and strive to create the songs that don’t sound like anyone else; the results reflect just how unique they are as musicians and songwriters. Evidence of this can be heard on the track ‘Street Queen’ – all seven minutes of it received radio airplay on Tom Robinson’s 6Music Introducing Mix-tape. Their passionate live shows have been described as the soundtrack for “a bourbon-soaked bar brawl” and are where they strive to ensure audiences are captivated by the Slicks energy, commitment and musicianship.

Garlic Kings – Shoulder to Shoulder

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 12:00

Garlic KingsIn our most recent dive into the world of celtic music near St. Paddys we ran into the following self described “folk-punk-rock” eight-piece from Saint Petersburg, Russia, who started pulling off their first high energy live performances in 2009. The musicians adhere to a position of ‘No politics No racism’. The music is best described as thus:
It represents rather a fascinating mix of pirate, sea and port romance, boisterous punk, covers of popular songs unusually interpreted, all of it made rich with a fair portion of folk instruments, flavoured with Celtic jigs and spiced with a decent spoonful of cynical humour. The main orienting points in the band’s music are world-famous ‘pillars’ of the genre: Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers, The Pogues.

Today’s excellent featured track is from the 2011 release, “On the Shores of the Baltic” and a taste of their live performance of the same title follows in the video below.
