Bride & Groom: Auld Lang Syne

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 12/30/2014 - 13:00

Bride & GroomAs another milestone New Year approaches for 2015, we thought it would be nice to feature the close-out Daily Dose feature from Montreal songwriting duo, Bride & Groom. They released a fun EP for the Holidays, ‘A Very Merry Bride & Groom Christmas‘ and this beautiful traditional track is the final one, although we have one last track on the Dose tomorrow that Stuart will be unveiling from the other side of the pond.

Enjoy, and have a safe and hopefully profound NY Eve!

tiny cuts: Call Out My Name

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 12/28/2014 - 12:00

tiny cutstiny cuts is the collaboration between filmmaker AJ and music producer Gavin Bushell. Based in Wales, they create original tunes across a range of genres, including rock, pop, folk and indie.

“Their first single, So Near, hit radio waves in the UK, USA and China. Second single Love Run Free saw the duo’s first collaboration with other artists, and their third single Slowly, a collaboration with Anoni, was favourited by legendary filmmaker Oliver Stone.

“These first three singles, collectively known as the SEX/death trilogy, each have their own music video [the one for Love Run Free is embedded below].

“tiny cuts have recently finished their five track EP, A Walking Shadow (2014), and are currently releasing tracks from their debut LP: Baby, You’ve Been Cut By Love’s Thrashing Blade [from which today’s Dose is taken].” [bio]

All tiny cuts tracks are accompanied by artwork created by Welsh artist Norris Nuvo: the third man in the tiny cuts collaboration.

From their debut LP “Baby, You’ve Been Cut By Love’s Thrashing Blade”

Roadhouse 513

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 12/27/2014 - 18:14
After an unexpected week away from The Roadhouse, we close out 2014 with the first of two year-in-review shows. Preston Shannon, The Holmes Brothers, Annika Chambers & The Houston All-Stars, John Mayall, and Janiva Magness lead the way with outstanding new releases in 2014. It's almost another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 513th Roadhouse.

Boogie Belgique: All Over the World

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 12/27/2014 - 13:00

Boogie BelgiqueAs we count down the final days of the year along with the musicians and aficionados around the globe, we figured the best thing for today would be to feature ‘All Over the World‘ by Ghent, Belgium electro-swing artist Boogie Belgique. The moniker is the recording name of Oswald Cromheecke, a Belgian Producer/DJ who mixes up abstract hip-hop beats, electro-swing conjoined with jazz and a nice dose of sampling to give a lot of it a old-time feel.

We’ve been waiting a few months to find the right time to absorb the whole album Nightwalker, Vol.1 and hope to bring you something in the future from what sounds like a stellar 2014 follow-up Nightwalker, Vol. 2.

Röyksopp: Le Cantique de Noël

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 12/25/2014 - 08:01

RoyksoppMerry Christmas to all those listeners and supporters who’ve been with us over this last continuous year of new (and even older) music via the 365 Daily Doses and smattering of regional live shows. Today, we’ve got a special track from Norwegian electronic giants, Röyksopp who put quite a lot of emotion into the best version of Cantique de Noël we’ve heard to date.

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous than holiday music today, be sure to check out the slightly darker new track Skulls which you can find at the band’s social sites below along with the brilliant video. Highly recommended.

Best of 2014 Part 1

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 22:26

I have port (both store bought and home made) and a thumb piano. This can only mean it’s the first part of the annual Edinburgh Man end-of-year poll results show.

Throughout the month of December listeners to the podcast have been voting for their five favourites tracks from 2014 that were played on the show. These votes have been counted and crunched and the resulting list will be played over two shows. This is the first one – tracks 50 down to number 25.

A word of warning – I consume two glasses of port throughout the podcast and there is some rambling as a result. Next time I’ll stick to Christmas tea. Honest.

Wild Nothing: One Christmas Catalogue

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 12/23/2014 - 13:00

Wild NothingVirginia based favorite Wild Nothing (aka Jack Tatum) released this holiday track last year after making the recording for fun… a well executed cover of the Captain Sensible track, One Christmas Catalogue.

As was a world away for those in the US, or potentially before some of your times, the song originally released in the UK in 1984 by Captain Sensible, after he left the band he co-founded in 1976, The Damned. They have the distinction of being the first UK punk band to put out a single/LP in ’76/’77.

Dave’s Lounge #300: The 2014 Yearbook

Dave's Lounge - Sun, 12/21/2014 - 06:15

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #300 - The 2014 YearbookAs our lonely little planet once again turns a corner and makes its way around the sun, we look back at the year that was by taking a moment to examine what our media landscape has become. We live in a world where the recording and radio industries are run by big data, and it turns out we’re the ones supplying a lot of that data. We live in a media environment where a breach of a movie studio’s computer security can somehow morph into a “terrorist threat” against “American interests”. In this sort of environment, it helps to understand who’s really delivering a message like that and why. It also helps to realize how that environment gets funded, and what we can do to change that.

Independent voices in media are more important than ever these days, and there’s never been a better time to support them.

If you’ve missed hearing me talk at the beginning of the show, you’re in luck. I’ve got plenty to say this week.

I also have more than two hours of great music from this year for you. Here are the songs that you selected as your favorites from 2014. Here’s to another trip around the sun, and here’s to the music that guided us along the way…
