Roadhouse 568

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sun, 01/17/2016 - 02:30
It's a full hour in this edition of The Roadhouse with about as many tracks as you can pack in and still leave a little time for talk. Included in that big stack of blues: Jonn Del Toro Richardson, Sam Butler, Candye Kane, Billy Boy Arnold, and Trudy Lynn. Any good real-world Roadhouse packs 'em in on Saturday night and I think we've got it covered both ways. We're packed full of patrons and packed full of artists in another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 568th Roadhouse.

Sonder Saloon: Who You Are

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 01/16/2016 - 13:00

Sonder SaloonA handful of months back, Los Angeles based trio Sonder Saloon took to the mountains at Fish Lake, Utah and recorded the acoustic indie-folk sounds found in their debut EP, Mackinaw. This excellent six track release dropped on 11.18.15 and includes a mix of acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies, banjo and synth, all influenced by favorites Fleet Foxes and the Beach Boys.

We ran across the group when the video for Who You Are was sent to us in a link. This was apparently the last song written by the band in Utah, and it is comprised entirely of historical footage from the public domain. Check out this nicely edited video further down below…

Inspired & the Sleep: Die Slow

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 01/15/2016 - 13:15
Inspired & the Sleep Inspired & the Sleep have put out a new video for their tune ‘Die Slow’ (from their Eyelid Kid EP released last November) created by Australian director Robert Crispe. The Stop-Motion Animation Video took a year to create and features over 3,700 frames with no post work. Check it out below.

“Inspired & the Sleep is a dream-pop band 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.” [bio]

In a change from the usual yearly routine Edinburgh Man is not taking a break for the month of January, although you’d be forgiven for not realising this since there wasn’t a show last week. Never mind, we kick the year off today with chat about retro technology and a track from a new cassette by Baker Island.

Also on the show tracks from Jo Mango (with RM Hubbert), “Not” Spot Collins, and Plastic Animals. Sounds like a great start to 2016…

The Fight: Brooklyn

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 01/14/2016 - 13:00

The FightEdmonton, Canada based band The Fight has released their EP North America this past October 9 through Open Circles Collective, written over a two year period and a byproduct of some of the influential experiences the band has faced to date.

Shaped by stretches of highway and poignant nostalgia, the EP takes listeners on a cinematic road trip through the eyes of youth. Lyrics venture thoughtfully through sentiments of love, loss, loneliness, adventure and awe while instruments provide an emotionally charged pulse to the narrative.

The EP is available via digital outlets like iTunes or you can pick up physical copies at their Bandcamp site below.
