Edinburgh Man #186

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 19:59

Another new podcast and another new cup. Perhaps I should always make the photos for the podcast a picture of my current hot drink in my most recently purchased mug. This mug is from Edinburgh’s fantastic Artisan Roast. Coffee of distinction for sure.

On today’s podcast I’m a bit grumpy. There are many contribution factors from technology with in-built obsolescence to peeing toddlers. What fun.

Music-wise, tracks from the wonderful Jonnie Common, Wozniak, Stanley Odd and more. At least there’s good music to cheer me up.

Leon Bridges: Coming Home

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 15:00

Leon BridgesLeon Bridges is a talented singer-songwriter from the Fort Worth area of Texas who blends southern soul and gospel. When I first heard the opener of his brilliant new song Coming Home I was first reminded very slightly of the good vibes of Peter Wingfield’s ‘Eighteen with A Bullet’ although things took a completely different turn when the soulful vocals took hold.

This is a promising debut with another track ‘Better Man’ currently available for free at the Soundcloud link below. Apparently he is also tracking at least one new song, and doing some upcoming shows with Sharon Van Etten in Brooklyn, so be sure to bookmark the social sites below for the latest news on the track progression and tour dates.

DJX Weekend Live Set Now On Mixcloud

Dave's Lounge - Tue, 11/18/2014 - 00:38

As you fly into Philadelphia, you can see the thick grey smoke rising from the power plants on the river, even in the dead of night. Urban renewal and urban decay live side by side everywhere you look. It’s a hardscrabble city that demands more from its residents than any part of America really should.

Dave's Lounge GlassAnd I can’t stop loving the place.

I mean, look at this whiskey glass. Benjamin Chou, who’s been part of the Philadelphia blues and fusion dance scenes for a while now, laser-etched this bad boy and presented it to me on Friday, the night of my 2:00 AM set at DJX Fusion Weekend. How awesome is that? He made special glasses for several other mutual friends of ours, too. The DJX crew and the dancers in Philly are wonderful people, and I am both happy to call them friends and grateful that they offered me the opportunity to come and play some tunes at their event again this year.

Because this mix contains some major label tunes, I am unable to make it available on the podcast feed, but I can post it to Mixcloud. This was played and recorded live using Traktor DJ for the iPad, and it’s presented here, warts and all. There are a few similarities toward the end between this mix and my Shakori Hills Recess mix from last September, mostly because there wasn’t much overlap between those two crowds. The first 10 minutes got a great response from the crowd; they might get you up and dancing, too.

Here’s the set list:

1.) Ana Popovic, “Mo’ Better Love (feat. Tommy Sims)”
2.) Marian Hill, “Whisky”
3.) Blackstreet, “No Diggity”
4.) Chet Faker, “Terms And Conditions”
5.) Andreya Triana, “Lost Where I Belong”
6.) Submotion Orchestra, “Trust / Lust”
7.) Marina Quaisse, “8th of July”
8.) Alice Russell, “I’m The Man That Will Find You”
9.) Tori Amos, “Sugar”
10.) Feist, “Brandy Alexander”
11.) Alina Baraz & Galimatias, “Pretty Thoughts”
12.) Moloko, “Statues”
13.) Lovespirals, “Feels So Good (Yumenomado’s Film Noir Mix)”
14.) Motif, “One More Time (feat. Naemi Joy)”

Enjoy! And thanks again for the great times, Philadelphia!

Doghouse Sam, Skyla Burrell Band, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Guy Davis, and Johhny Rawls and Otis Clay make up another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 507th Roadhouse.

Courtesy Tier: Something Better

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 11/15/2014 - 15:00

Courtesy TierBrooklyn blues-influenced rock duo Courtesy Tier is Omer (guitar) and Layton (drums), who’ve been playing together for the last seven years, but they weren’t always a duo. As members came and went, they perpetually conceptualized themselves as a four and sometimes six piece band. Then, during their second winter in New York, they had run out of other band members. Regrouping in a closet size practice space under the Smith Street overpass, they finally had enough room to rehearse, and they liked the sound, following which their first full length, “The Resolution” was born.

In addition to the band’s impressive single “Something Better” released December 2012, we’ve also embedded the music video below for “Cold” another solid track taken from the band’s earlier ‘Holy Hot Fire’ EP.

Edinburgh Man #185

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 11/13/2014 - 21:11

Tonight the podcast may jump the shark.

On last week’s show, for very little reason, I played some great tracks that have been featured on the podcast over the last almost 5 years. I was going to do something similar today because I quite enjoyed making it up as I went along, and entertaining suggestions from listeners on Twitter. However I accidentally sorted the playlist consisting of everything I’ve played by duration… So I thought, I wonder if I can make a podcast by playing every track in order of length from shortest to longest until I get to 45ish minutes. Since there are so many under 60 seconds this could end up being a mad panic. A mad panic with lots of Grindcore and Screamo.

I realise this is something I probably should have saved for that upcoming 5th anniversary, but who cares. Let’s do it.
