Daily Misconceptions: Insomnia Trap (Mr. Herbert Quain ‘Pale Sky Reconstitution’)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 04/24/2016 - 12:00

Daily MisconceptionsDaily Misconceptions is João Santos, namely his electronic musical project based out of Lisboa, Portugal focusing on homemade electronic beats, glitchy pop like melodies, lo-fi singing and expanded cinema as a live canvas.

Since the beginning Daily Misconceptions has counted with the support of illustrators, designers, musicians and visual artists who participate with their skills and exceptional work. Performing live he’s joined by the visual artist Sara Esteves in order to adapt a concert into an audiovisual show. Daily Misconceptions thus becomes a duo, from which a symbiotic relationship is born. Live, the organic textures with undefined colorations become unpredictable landscapes. [via bio]

Today’s outstanding feature was beautifully supplemented by Manuel Bogalheiro, or Mr. Herbert Quain, of Peraboa, Portugal – officially arriving via the Insomnia Trap (single), released March 10, 2016.

Roadhouse 582

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 04/23/2016 - 20:07

This week, it's the second of two Roadhouse Rewinds while I work my way home from vacation. I'll be back next week with a new edition of The Roadhouse.

The dark little dive we call The Roadhouse is home this week to the broadest range of blues you might find anywhere. Smokey Wilson, Frank Goldwasser, Snooky Pryor, Anders Osborne, and Bluesmasters featuring Mickey Thomas mix it up with various takes on the blues. The spotlight is on the multeity of the blues in the 270th Roadhouse, and it's definitely another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Mr Moustache: Menthol Masturbation

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 04/23/2016 - 12:00

Mr MoustacheThe three song Menthol EP was released on February 14th of this year, a nice dose of punk rock out of Bordeaux France for this fine Saturday, reminding me of a few classic SF bay area bands of old. The EP, which was issued as a free download, was put out by DV’s records out of Talence France and has been issued earlier on a few releases including the 2011 label compilation, “DV’s Anthems Vol 3 “.

4-22-2016 – Thoughts about Prince and his passing.

Zaldor's World - Fri, 04/22/2016 - 12:52

I’m a big Prince fan.. I was shocked to hear of his passing on 4-21-2016, and I still am a day later. My podcast is my thoughts, as well as some singing along too… Enjoy and Rest In Peace Prince Rogers Nelson. You will never be forgotten, may your music live on…

Fairchild: Neighbourhoods

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 04/22/2016 - 12:00
Fairchild Aussies stranded in Manchester, FAIRCHILD have returned in denim-clad vengeance with their fresh single Neighbourhoods – a gristly, trailblazing throwback to 1980s new wave and dance-rock. The track was produced by friend and collaborator Catherine Marks (Foals, The Killers, Wolf Alice), who facilitated the band in throwing caution to the wind and letting their freak flag fly with pure sawtooth riffage, soaring guitar solos and sensual, muscular vocals.

Neighbourhoods was written during a series of pre-production sessions in Gold Coast, Australia, during which FAIRCHILD worked individually and in small groups to trade instruments, mix sounds and experiment with song ideas. Throughout this exacting four-month period of brainstorming, the band began to recognize parallels between their recordings and the songs they’d always loved. Channeling the restless groove-ability of Talking Heads and the dance floor sensibilities of INXS, Neighbourhoods is a worthy inclusion to FAIRCHILD’s recent stream of 1980s musical praises.

Edinburgh Man #231

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 04/21/2016 - 19:10

Podcast Number 231, or “Edinburgh Man and Edinburgh Man Junior’s Alternative Record Store Day”. For yes – Edinburgh Man Junior makes his proper podcasting debut on this week’s show.

In celebration of Record Store Day here is a special behind the scenes insight into how the two Edinburgh Men spend this annual event. Once upon a time it used to be about queuing in the cold at 7am to buy wacky coloured repressings and crazily priced box sets. But that’s all in the past. I can’t even keep up with vinyl releases throughout the rest of the year let alone the RSD ones too.

Our day involve swimming lessons, coffee and cake, play park visits, children’s birthday parties and yes – some record store related shenanigans. Oh, and hiccups. Lots of hiccups.

ETCHES: Love is

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 04/20/2016 - 12:00
ETCHES Liverpool quintet ETCHES have announced the release of their brand new single Love Is. Immediately accessible, and yet never predictable, the Merseyside outfit’s latest effort reveals a band at the top of their creative game, crafting emotionally captivating music that speaks directly to the listener.

With nods to the likes of Interpol, Torches and Tears For Fears – indicative of the scope at play here – the new release confirms their status as one of the most exciting bands emerging from a northern city in rude aural health right now, bringing influences from electronica to post punk and psychedelia into the melting pot, winding up with something somehow familiar yet unarguably original.

With a UK tour underway and further new material in the pipeline, the five-piece are set for a busy few months with focus on the band sure to intensify. [via Super Cat PR]

Kassassin Street: Hand in My Pocket

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 04/18/2016 - 12:00
Kassassin Street Kassassin Street release their first single of 2016, the politically charged ‘Hand in My Pocket’, out 8th April.

Following on from the acclaimed singles ‘To Be Young’ and ‘Radio Silence’ Portsmouth 5-piece Kassassin Street unveil their politically charged first single of 2016, ‘Hand in My Pocket’- three minutes and fifteen seconds of punchy psych-pop ruminating on social injustice in a UK society under austerity.

The band are looking to build on the name they made for themselves in 2015, when they played a full summer of festivals, including appearances at Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Blissfelds, Y Not, Great Escape, Beatherder and Isle of Wight, as well as a hometown slot at Victorious Festival which drew a crowd of 3000 people.

An autumn tour also went very well, selling out venues in Brighton, Stoke and Leeds and culminated in selling 500 tickets for a hometown show at the Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth. [via Super Cat PR]
