Apologies for the late posting

Three From Leith - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 21:42

Apologies – I appear to have been hit by the dreaded WordPress ‘Missed Schedule’ bug where scheduled posts fail to publish at the specified time.

Unfortunately, I was so busy today I forgot to check on whether TFL had published at 5.30am this morning and only remembered tonight. And when I did, Show 287 was MIA…. I’ve rectified that now by manually publishing it so it’s now available to the world!

I’m trying a temporary solution via CRON job on my web hosting for now – and if this post gets published I’ll know that it has worked and will be ready for the next TFL show’s publication date.

Until then – cheerio!

Edinburgh Man #196

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 20:40

Hopefully the torrential rain outside the window at Edinburgh Man towers doesn’t get picked up by the microphone on this week’s Tuesday night podcast. It’s been snowy, cold, sunny (for a short while at least), sleety and rainy today. I was supposed to pick up the scooter today from a garage out in the wilds of East Lothian. I decided not to bother. Last time that sort of thing happened it wouldn’t start by the time I did go and pick it up. Hopefully this won’t happen again.

Enough rambling. Tonight’s show includes music from Colour Me Wednesday, a new single on Odd Box Records from T-Shirt Weather, and a track from the LP that’s on the Voyager space crafts. Yep.

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Flu defeated, it’s time for a trip back to the 80s with some eighties-influenced synth-pop from the current day. Hard to conceive that the 80s were 30 years ago, and even stranger to think back to what you were doing back then! So, put on those rose-tinted specs and come with me back to those carefree days of my teens…

Star Tropics: Summer Rain

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 13:00

Star TropicsChicago’s Star Tropics began as original members Scott (lead guitar) and Loren (bass, vocals) found themselves huddled around a drum machine. Searching for the sound that would eventually define the band, Star Tropics went on to become four musicians determined to write carefree, primary-colored pop songs.

Bandmember Loren has a great story about his chance meeting with another in the band, Scott. A fall day in 2010 found Loren unemployed and out for a walk on Logan Boulevard. Convinced that he heard a familiar melody in the distance, he followed the tune until he was led to a tall graystone that was glowing in the oncoming dusk. While moments earlier the song was vaguely familiar, it was now clear that the guitar chiming from the attic window was “Back to the Old House”, an early Smiths b-side. A doorbell ring would reveal that Scott was the musician on the inside, and he was just whom Loren was looking to meet.

2012 saw the band take their songs from out of the basement and into the concert halls of Chicago. Performing at venues such as Schubas, Subterranean, and Whistler, they have had the privilege of sharing the stage with touring acts like Eternal Summers, Porcelain Raft, Nothing, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Panda Riot.

They’ve since released an earlier debut EP and issued new songs, Summer Rain & Swept Away, both recorded by Brian Cook in Summer 2014 and mixed in Los Angeles. You can pick up both of these great songs and further support the artists at Soundcloud or Bandcamp below.

Roadhouse 522

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sun, 03/01/2015 - 00:23
This edition of The Roadhouse is of a feel. Not quite Chicago, not quite West Coast, but a texture all its own. Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials, James Day & The Fish Fry, Lynwood Slim, Igor Prado, and Joey Gilmore are all ahead. I think you'll get the feel right away and agree that it's definitely another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 522nd Roadhouse.
