Lyon Apprentice: Alice

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 03/25/2016 - 12:00
Lyon Apprentice Australian duo Lyon Apprentice have returned with their exhilarating new track, Alice – a minimalist, dream-pop tribute to a longtime friend and the husband she lost. The single was recorded in the brothers’ new home studio in Manchester and mixed/produced by singer/guitarist Adam Lyons. ‘Alice’ sees Lyon Apprentice shuffling off their folk roots and embracing synth-driven, percussive production.

‘Alice’ marks Lyon Apprentice’s first release since their debut EP ‘Be Honest, Be Wild, Be Free’ (2014), produced by Mark Myers (The Middle East, Emma Louise) and mixed by Catherine Marks (Foals, Killers, Death Cab For Cutie), and signals the duo’s move toward independent, artist-led creation and promotion.

Edinburgh Man #228

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Fri, 03/25/2016 - 09:16

Ahh… It was a lovely sunny Good Friday morning as I recorded this week’s podcast. Slightly confused chat including me embarrassingly saying that the band “Leggy” were from LA rather than Cincinnati. So many apologies to them. I’ve just realised that because it’s the morning I haven’t had my coffee yet – so that’s the defence I’m going with.

Other music includes the new single “Kickstart” from Edinburgh’s Book Group, which is released today. There’s also a new track from that brilliant Adam Stafford album, and a track from the Second Hand Marching Band / Benni Hemm Hemm collaboration.

Sir CroissantSir Croissant, an indie folk singer-songwriter from Banja Luka in Bosnia Herzegovina released his six track Let Me Sleep EP just a few weeks back on March 3, 2016. Braille is the first song on this promising debut release described solely as “…a tale about a loss…”, and apparently largely influenced by Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan.

The March Divide: Exit Signs

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 03/23/2016 - 13:00
The March Divide San Antonio-based songwriter, Jared Putnam, leader of the sometimes more, but usually one-man pop-rock band, The March Divide, is prolific. It’s a word used often / often misused, but when it comes to Putnam, it applies. As such, The March Divide announces the upcoming release of a new album! Saturdays follows-up two album and three EP releases from Putnam in just a three-year period, and according to the artist, it’s his most satisfying work to date.

“I think I finally made the record I wanted to make,” Putnam says of the follow-up to 2014’s Billions and its accompanying 2015 EP “+1.” “I didn’t set out to write an album so soon after the last, but I never really stopped writing.” [via Fanatic]

Live Session: Modern Sons

The Justin Wayne Show - Wed, 03/23/2016 - 00:25


The fellas from Modern Sons stopped by the studio recently and we had a great time together. They told us about where they’re headed – one place, namely, Austin Texas for the South by Southwest festival. I also asked them about their crazy sounds they make both on their records and on stage, and we got into some technical talk about their favorite pedals and the core of their sound and where it comes from.

I also convinced them to let me bring my recording array into their small rehearsal space in Bozeman, Montana and get a few takes of the songs they’re working on right now. The recordings turned out pretty darn well, and you’ll hear a few songs. You’ll hear one song off their current album, Moon Racoon and one that’s just come out on their latest EP, More or Less.

Tangram: Glide Path Lights

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 03/22/2016 - 12:00

TangramMinsk, Belarus based instrumental rock band Tangram recently issued their studio debut in the Hikikomori EP, four atmospheric instrumental compositions and a cover song, PTVP.

The band’s style is influenced by post-rock, psychedelic, ambient and noise rock, born out of the creative manifesto of a basement rehearsal room. We heard them first over at thesixtyone where they thankfully had translated the title of the track from Russian into English.

We found a few links aside from t61, all below for your listening pleasure. They also have some videos through YouTube and Vimeo, with one embedded further below for the EP title track, Hikikomori.

The Justin Wayne Show - Tue, 03/22/2016 - 00:45


I believe we were able to sneak out this last podcast before our system went south on us (we’ve repaired it since then!) One of the big things in this episode, aside from playing some great tunes, is that we’re going to be taking a bit of time off to rework, reassess and really dig into discussions on how we can make this podcast and the Maven.FM network the best they can be.

Our break begins… now and we’ll be back on April 11th.

We’ll still have a few things coming through the website and the feed including the Free Music Feature and at least one session! Maybe we’ll even get a Podtape up this month. Have a good March!

Update: we won’t be doing our Birthday Best until May-ish, which is a change from what we announced in this episode.


We play a pair tunes from a Randy Combs favorite on this show: Prince Perry.

New Carnival: Sweet Caroline

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 03/21/2016 - 12:00
New Carnival “Bristol indie rock trio New Carnival have announced the forthcoming release of their new single Sweet Caroline. The track, centring on an unorthodox love proposal, kicks off what is set to be a busy year for the three-piece, with a Club NME show at Koko next month followed by a hometown gig at The Louisiana and performances at Dot To Dot Festival in May.

“Comprising of Max (lead vocals, guitar), Bertie (drums) and Billy (bass), the band have been busy recording in their frontman’s home studio, with the infectious and hard-hitting Sweet Caroline the product of these sessions. Having been named as one of Annie Mac’s New Names for 2016, the outfit clearly have a lot of momentum behind them and Sweet Caroline is sure to catapult them firmly into the spotlight.

“New Carnival’s Sweet Caroline was released on 18th March via Spinnup and is available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer. [via Super Cat PR]

Dia: Tiny Ocean

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 03/20/2016 - 12:00
Dia Dia is the project of composer and performer, Danielle Birrittella. Her debut EP, Tiny Ocean, will be released Spring 2016 and features songs produced by producer/drummer Joey Waronker (Beck, REM, Atoms for Peace), Tim Carr (The Americans, HAIM) and Frankie Siragusa (theLAB).

Dia’s lush baroque-pop sound incorporates vocal pedals and ethereal vocal textures abstracted by organic percussion, electric guitars, ukulele, tiple, cellos, and drones. Raised on a Hindu ashram, she sang ceremonial ragas as a child, which led to training and performing as an opera singer throughout the U.S. and Europe. Along these travels, she began writing songs on a ukulele.

A native of New England, and a graduate of New York University (BA) and California Institute of the Arts (MFA), she has lived and worked as an artist in New York, France, and Italy. Performances have included Disney Hall’s REDCAT – Los Angeles, La Musica Lirica – Italy, The Chautauqua Institute – New York, La Main d’Or – Paris, and The Ludwig Foundation – Cuba. Her upcoming project is a song cycle set to Rilke’s Sonnets To Orpheus for string quartet and her voice featuring 10 composers, including Jherek Bischoff, Aoife O’Donovan, Christopher Rountree (WildUp) and Qasim Naqvi (Dawn of Midi).

Dia’s live performance of Covered In Light was recently featured on NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest.

Roadhouse 577

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 03/19/2016 - 23:01
The 577th Roadhouse has a lot of potential: to get your toes tapping, to hear some great blues that you might not have known about otherwise, and potential for some chair-dancing. Johnny Rawls, Steve Earle & The Dukes, Luther Dickinson, Guy King, Tasha Taylor - almost every track in the hour is new within the past 2 or 3 months or still to be released. In other words, there's also the potential here for an hour that really just flies by and, of course, to be another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Don Tigra: Maria, Mine

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 03/19/2016 - 12:00

Don TigraDon Tigra began in late 2012 when americana songwriter Stephen Gordon fell out of love with the rural, folk driven portrayal of his own inward journey. After growing up in both Memphis and The Shenandoah Valley, and following a year stint in Nashville with some regional success as an americana artist, Gordon moved to Bowling Green, KY in 2010. In the early winter months of 2013, Gordon began to write and demo the sketches that would become Don Tigra. Encouraged by longtime bandmate Ben Gortmaker, along with the rekindling of an old friendship with bassist Josh Hitson, Gordon entered the studio that fall. Gortmaker produced alongside Konrad Snyder (Night Beds, Kopecky). Gordon was the most surprised of all when Snyder encouraged the team to start each song with the demos, to then re-record anything that could be done with more life and intentionality.

The lead vocals of the record’s first single, “Maria, Mine”, were sung originally as a placeholder in the demo as Gordon wrote them, while the song came fully to life when drummer David Page cut Gordon’s demo drum part in half to create its unique, swaying hypnosis. This somehow did not detract from the songs energy, but rather enhanced the attitude portrayed in the vocals. The result of this approach throughout was a sound that acutely reflected Gordon’s experience composing the material. “Don Tigra” is set to release in 2016. The band will be touring this summer, with a follow-up album already well under way.
