Edinburgh Man #211

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 18:51

Oh hello podcast listeners! Apologies that it’s being so long since the last show. Blah, blah work, blah blah chronic pain… Anyway, podcast 211 is here now, so let’s not say any more about it.

That picture there is a bit of the cover of John Darnielle’s book “Wolf in White Van”. Is it any good? I haven’t read it yet, but he’s talking about it at the Edinburgh Book Festival this year so I thought I should read it beforehand. I just need to finish this shonky 1970’s Arthur C Clarke sci-fi book about enigmatic aliens that I’m currently reading.

Anyway, what’s in the show? Music! Great music, and bad chat. Nothing changes.

Adam Cleaver: The Salt Mine

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 07/30/2015 - 12:00

Adam Cleaver The Salt Mine is a the newest track from London based alternative-folk artist Adam Cleaver, who seems to channel Thom Yorke’s haunting falsetto in parts within, carried forward with accompaniment of the perfect arrangement on his acoustic guitar, complimented by the steady build-up performed by his very talented backing band.

Adam Cleaver is only 24 and started performing on the open mic circuit in 2013 where he piqued interest of Veta Records and began working on tracks with Matt Harris (HAWK). His debut EP Boxed and Braised received some solid support upon release and he is now poised to release the 2nd EP ‘Man or Beast’ due to drop via Veta Records on September 18th.

For fans of: Thom Yorke, Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine

Doubting Thomas Cruise Control: Soft Focus

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 07/27/2015 - 12:00
Doubting Thomas Cruise Control Soft Focus is the second single from the forthcoming LP Remember Me John Lydon Forever by Doubting Thomas Cruise Control (AKA DTCC) due out August 14th via Fleeting Youth Records and the band’s own Duckbill Records.

“A heartbreaking song at it’s core, “Soft Focus” is one piece of the bigger puzzle that is Remember Me John Lydon Forever. The album is quirky yet heartfelt, snarling yet sincere, it’s an introspective record that carries themes of growing up, responsibility that comes with age, and life expectations, the thoughts of an artist watching those around them enter “adulthood” and as Cardos puts it, the pursuit to “evolve from being defined by what you’re not and what you don’t ascribe to, and using that to figure out what you do ascribe to.” [via Fleeting Youth Records]

Todd Tobias: Suvarnabhumi

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 07/26/2015 - 15:31
Todd Tobias Today’s Dose is from the new album Tristes Tropiques by Ohio based multi-instrumentalist Todd Tobias.

“While best known for producing Guided By Voices and collaborating with Robert Pollard (Circus Devils, Ricked Wicky and Pollard’s solo material), Tobias has also crafted an innovative body of instrumental solo work, of which Tristes Tropiques is the latest chapter.

“Hypnotic and melancholy-soaked, Tristes Tropiques presents a luxuriant yet downcast tone, drawing comparisons to the eerie, transportive work of The Fun Years, The Gentleman Losers and Ian William Craig. This is no better exemplified than on single ‘Suvarnabhumi’, in which sparse, yearning guitar figures are subsumed by ethereal synths. Sinister yet alluring, these musical environments throb with sensuality, danger and promise.” [press release]
