Edinburgh Man #208

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 06/02/2015 - 19:57

Today I bunked off work in the afternoon and went to the degree show at ECA. I moaned during the podcast that it wasn’t as good as the last couple of years… but as I think about it now I reckon I was a bit unfair. There was lots of interesting work on display – I’ll have to pop back before the show finishes this weekend. Anyway, this photo was taken from the balcony in the main hall. That chap down there was singing Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely”. Quite why he was singing one of the worst Stevie Wonder songs I’m not entirely sure. I didn’t want to venture nearer and find out.

On the podcast itself… Well, it was rather swiftly curtailed. I’d planned for a 45 minute long show, but it turned out the new streaming service I was using only had 30 minutes left (after I’d been testing it for 30 minutes before the show). So this is a short episode. Apologies!

Wicca Woo: Always

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 06/02/2015 - 12:00

Wicca WooThe six-track debut EP from WICCA WOO just released on May 26th, a new project by two brothers out of Tampa, Florida.

The first track ‘Always’ struck a deeper chord here on first listen, its moodier and slowly unfolding beauty reminding us of favorites vocalists out here in LA, notably the haunting ballads of Elliott Smith or our old friend Nico Stai. The only short-falling is that we wished it just didn’t end, clocking in under 3 minutes and leaving us heading back for another few deep listens.

Roadhouse 535

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 05/30/2015 - 22:19
The 535th Roadhouse is the first regular show in a few weeks and it's nice to be back. I've got lots of new music in the hour, most of which is less than 2 months old. Jackie Payne, Mr. Sipp, The Kentucky Headhunters with Johnnie Johnson, Ana & Milton Popovic, The Nighthawks - there are some real Roadhouse staples, and some artists who could easily be staples. As the seasons roll on, The Roadhouse rolls into another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Robbie Flanagan: The City Who Forgot

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 05/30/2015 - 12:00

Robbie FlanaganAberdeen Scotland based singer-songwriter Robbie Flanagan has announced the release of his excellent debut album, Remember To Forget.

This album is a beautifully constructed acoustic album. Album opener ‘The City Who Forgot’ is filled with soft, smooth guitar picking and Robbie’s warm, whispered and hypnotic vocals and sets the perfect tone for the rest of the release. The album’s title reflects on various events Robbie has experienced over the years and the emotions he has had to come to terms with, expressed effortlessly through intricate guitar trills and luscious harmonies.

Robbie apparently has plans for a UK tour in the near future. Until that time comes you can pick up and explore the new album, available now via Home Recording.

Six Times Seven: The Last Resort

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 05/29/2015 - 12:00
Six Times Seven Contrast, conflict, and a lurking darkness weave their way through Six Times Seven‘s driving energy. A 90s alternative core with a growling dose of early-70s proto-metal results in an intense package of diversity that reflects the same element in their roster. [bio]

Today’s Dose is from their new EP Ish, which you can find on BandCamp, along with their previous EP A Lesbian, a Jew, and a Dave released in July 2014, on a ‘name your price’ basis.

Martinibomb: Dizzy ke Peche

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 12:00

MartinibombMartinibomb are a duo from Portland, Oregon who have been realeasing some very creative songs for at least the last five or more years, as we recall always being inspired by their sampling while listening to a variety of shows and digging through the Internet stacks. The page at the FMA claims Martinibomb enjoy cobbling odd songs together from vinyl records, tin cans, sticks and chewing gum, as well as enjoying reading books, collecting records, brewing sake, and watching obscure films.

Check out the links below and be amazed as their efforts are always very inspired. For example check out the newest effort embedded below, a short sample of the video for “Death Ray Samba” their new release on vinyl. More info on this can also be found via their Facebook page.

Edinburgh Man #207

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 05/26/2015 - 20:20

The podcast returns after a short vacation to New York City! Today’s rambling tales cover such subject matter as lactose intolerant sickness and the playgrounds of NYC.

Also, many apologies if you attempted to listen to this show live. Dodgy internet issues plagued the show, and the web connection seemed to give out halfway through. Hopefully the recording will be fine. I must sort this out before attempting another live show.

Music-wise, it’s definitely got a bit of a Brooklyn vibe, with tracks from Las Lanas, The Planes, Toby Goodshank and more.

Ancient Lasers: You in the Future

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 05/26/2015 - 12:00

Ancient LasersLA musician Daniel Finfer’s inspiration for blend­ing accel­er­at­ing tech­nolo­gies with music may sound famil­iar to many of you. Five years ago, he was struck by how few pop songs really had a mean­ing­ful mes­sage, and at the same time he was read­ing Ray Kurzweil’s The Sin­gu­lar­ity is Near.

Fin­fer got the idea for cre­at­ing songs that explored the themes of the Sin­gu­lar­ity under the guise of pop music. While his lyrics may sound like they are a stereo­typ­i­cal explo­ration of love, romance, and youth­ful bravado, they are actu­ally “a con­ver­sa­tion between my future and present selves, I’m sort of talk­ing back and forth through time.”
