Inspired & the Sleep: Time Travel

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 06/28/2015 - 12:07
Inspired and the SleepInspired & the Sleep is an indie-pop outfit 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.

“[…] The ‘Eyelid Kid’ EP is set to be out sometime in late 2015 following the consecutive release of a music video for each song. ” [band bio]

Roadhouse 539

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 06/27/2015 - 15:00
The sawdust is on the dance floor, the red and blue lights are shining on the little bandstand in the corner, and the bartender is washing the mugs, preparing for a big edition. I make the most of the hour with Slam Allen, The Word, Ana Popovic, JJ Appleton & Jason Ricci, and Lazer Lloyd. It's a good thing our little dive's out past the outskirts of town, 'cause we're gonna blow the roof off with another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 539th Roadhouse.

Thad Kopec: Guardian

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 06/27/2015 - 12:00

Thad KopecThad Kopec released “Guardian”, the second single from his forthcoming EP The Ridge, on May 19th. A cinematic indie folk narrative with instrumentation at the core, the song chronicles the journey of a son in search of his father while “the guardian questions his motives”.

Sweeping horns invigorate the imagination, while a percussive fluidity pervades the instrumentals due to the addition of Alex Plasket on trombones. The addition of Molly Parden’s vocals bring out a mysteriously lovely element to round out the song’s depth. Kopec says, “I wrote the song with just an acoustic guitar, but once I started adding instrumentation, I realized there was a lot of room to just play with the sound and make it feel like a musical journey as well as a lyrical and emotional one.”

It fundamentally altered everything – the way we dressed, the way we danced, who we f***ed (he’d hate me saying that). Like any movement, there were many sources, but it could easily be said that a lot of it sprung directly from the one-off, self-produced, acetate vinyls of Sam Zaman.” Nerm

Edinburgh Man #210

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 06/25/2015 - 19:24

What does that tin sign say that you can buy in every tourist trap place in the world..? “Do stupid things faster and with more energy”? I think that’s what’s happened here. I’ve foolishly increased my caffeine intake recently, and for the last few days I’ve had two long blacks each morning in place of my usual one. This seems fine while I’m working during the day, but by the time the evening comes around my body is still wide awake, while my brain is barely functional. As this podcast demonstrates.

First of all, the show was recorded on my phone because I forgot to charge up the iPad. So apologies for the dodgy(er) quality. Secondly my brain was less engaged than normal, so there is a whole lot of rambling. Luckily, the music is aces.

DIV I DED: Late Awakening

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 06/25/2015 - 12:00

DIV I DEDThe first track “Late Awakening” from Czech band, DIV I DED’s forthcoming debut album “Born to Sleep” is due out July 24th via Fleeting Youth Records.

DIV I DED was created by multi-instrumentalist Filip Helštýn towards the end of 2013 along with lead vocalist Viktorie Marksová. The band’s sound is inspired by melancholic pop and lo-fi folk which subtly breathes through layers of bittersweet melodies and foggy guitar fuzz similar to the Creation Records sound.

Fleeting Youth Records also has a free compilation of 22 great tracks from the first-half of 2015 that you can get at by following the compilation link below.
