The Vincents: Throne Song

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 03/16/2014 - 14:00

The VincentsCork, Ireland based death pop band The Vincents have just released a new double A side single ‘Throne Song’ / ‘Fever Dreams’, on March 14th via FIFA Records.

The lead vocals on ‘Throne Song’ are quite haunting and really have a nice full and rich vibe to them, some of the dark energy and qualities inherent to this specific track taking me back to the days when Alice in Chains, Tool, and even Danzig came into their own. Highly recommended.

Roadhouse 472

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 21:12
Looking into the crystal ball to predict the hour ahead, I see this: Joe Louis Walker, Hill Country Revue, Matt Schofield, John & Sylvia Embry, and Robert Randolph & the Family Band - roughly 55 minutes of great blues music with a little talk in -between - how’s that for a prediction? All told, it feels like a pretty solid hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard - the 472nd Roadhouse.

Rigbi: Take the Blame

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 03/15/2014 - 14:00

RigbiWe recently ran across the New Jersey rock band, Rigbi and their brand new album “Visionary”. Aside from loving the songs, we thought you should get a taste of their brilliant background/description:

In 1998, when most of you were rocking Air Jordans and spending your Friday nights watching the X-Files, four unassuming tweens were decidedly not listening to Chumbawambah as they laid the foundations for a musical revolution. Rigbi officially became Rigbi in 2011, but they have been a group for the past 14 years. Think of Rigbi as the four grown-up middle school guys sporting glasses and dodgy beards who are strumming, fingering and crooning the soundtrack to your ass-shaking and lawn-chair-sitting and road-tripping and beverage-consumption…because that’s all they are really.

Make sure to stop in and bookmark some of their social sites below and please check out their excellent self-directed inspiring conceptual video for ‘Take the Blame’, embedded further down the page.

Dave’s Lounge #280

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 03/14/2014 - 13:35

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #280This show has always been committed to supporting independent music, although there’s been more than one occasion in the past where a song with ties to a major label has ended up on the show by accident. Those shows aren’t available online anymore. After the Dajaz1 fiasco a couple years ago, I figure it’s best to be vigilant about these things. Some labels just hire lawyers that don’t care what their promotions teams are doing, and even if they weren’t, why support companies who are actively working against our best interests?

That vigilance is one of the reasons for the song I chose to be this week’s opener. You can probably guess the other reason…

Edinburgh Man #158

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 21:08

With hindsight I probably should have taken a picture of that chocolate cheesecake before I polished it off. But to be honest my brain wasn’t planning that far ahead. On that plate there used to be a bazillion calorie slice of cheesecake which I ate while playing Withered Hand’s “California” on the podcast. One of these things (or possibly both) made me come over all wobbly.

Anyway, today’s podcast features some great tracks from recent or upcoming albums. There’s that fantastic Withered Hand track and a great track from KEEL HER – both albums that were released this week. A track from the recent Yellow Ostrich album which came out in February, and a brilliant track from the upcoming album by Edinburgh’s The Last Battle.

In fact, it’s no wonder I felt wobbly after listening to all that.

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 03/13/2014 - 14:00

Lovely QuincesCroatian singer-songwriter Dunja Ercegovic is poised to hit SXSW this Friday and Saturday after musically taking her own country by storm. Dunja started her music project, Lovely Quinces in 2012, with today’s powerful single, “Wrong House” released in Croatia not to long thereafter in Feb 2013.

SnC 408 – In the dub

Suffolk And Cool - Wed, 03/12/2014 - 23:03

What a treat to have Dubamix back on the show and with a new album

We’ve got melodic electronic hip-hop from Brooklyn, house infused flamenco from Bronx, an official remix of a Local Natives track, guitar sounds from Mali, electro-dub from France, bassy South African dance music and some delicious guitar and accordion call and response from Astoria, New York.


Pool CosbyVideo Games – Pool Cosby (Brooklyn, NY) 

The Brooklyn based quartet, Pool Cosby, are releasing their second full length album, MMHMM: Remixes x Mash-ups x Edits on March 14. The album is already available for free download on the band’s Bandcamp page and to celebrate the release, they will be performing that night at Pianos at 10pm!

The 11-track album was mixed by Gabe MG and was mastered by Dan Millice at Engine Room Audio and follows their Can’t Wait EP which was released last summer.

A sample-based electronic hip-hop band from Brooklyn that was started by producers Joseph Caravalho and Andrew “Dru-tang” Klein, Pool Cosby is now a full live band consisting of Caravalho, drummer Nacor Zuluaga Morela, cellist Kristine Kruta and violinst Kevin Kuh.

The band starting gaining buzz in the NYC music scene in late 2012 and are currently #1 on Reverbnation’s experimental artists from Brooklyn list. They constantly play throughout the city, packing rooms including Spike Hill, Studio at Webster Hall, Drom, The Bitter End and Bowery Electric for CMJ 2013. They’ve already begun working on their next album and have already confirmed a ton of guest artists including Kool AD.

The Pool Cosby album release show will be this Friday, March 14 at Pianos, 158 Ludlow Street, NYC at 10pm.  Tickets $10



Richie TomaStompin Spaniard – Richie Toma (Bronx, NY, USA)

Richie Toma Correa is a musician/producer from the Bronx NY.  His parents gave him piano lessons when I was seven. That lasted a couple of years ’til he lost interest and they decided it was a waste of time and money. However with the advent of electronic keyboards and synths in the late seventies, his love of music suddenly arose and surprisingly the lessons he’d learned were never lost. He was fifteen.

“My parents sold the old upright piano and bought me an electric keyboard and an amp. From there I started playing in bands and began compiling synths, sequencers, drum machines and MIDI. By the late 90′s my brother, DJ Louie Passion got on the band wagon and off we went.

“We had record deals with Nervous, Kult and Fourth Fl. to name a few.  At the time, electronic music was big overseas so several of our tracks became remixes by some of the big boy DJ’s in Europe.

“My last release was in 1999. Since then I have been toying with different styles and genres. But the House always lets you come home, so I am back. And I have been working on some new material that will collectively become my first solo album called Stompin’ Spaniard!  Almost two years in the making it will be a mix of house, latin, techno and disco.  A combination that I feel gives you the four on the floor bass drum with latin percussion and simple yet catchy synth and vocal lines that become repetitive yet infectious!  Have a listen!


local nativesYou & I (Dee C’rell Remix) – Local Natives (Los Angeles)

Official remix of the outstanding American band, Local Natives, and their stunning track, You and I, remixed by, Dee C’rell.

Featuring the iconic bands mesmerizing beauty and sincerity, and Dee C’rell’s minimalistic electronic musicianship, You & I is a deep and submerging electronic track that entwines the depth of emotional honesty in the songs beautiful lyrics.

A track that will no doubt be heard throughout the year and beyond.


The Great Escape

As SXSW gets underway in Austin we’re already hearing about the line-up for The Great Escape in a couple of months which includes The Neighbourhood who we heard on the show last week.

Check the evolving line-up at

ImarhanTimbuktuAichata talammomt - Imarhan Timbuktu (Mali)

IMARHAN TIMBUKTU was formed in 1993 by Mohamed Issa Ag Oumar El Ansari, known as M’ed Issa. Since 1995, the group has toured throughout the North and South of Mali. Indeed, they’ve supplied much of the soundtrack to life in Northern Mali over the past 10 years.

They have appeared annually on the stage of the Festival au Desert and have performed in Europe and the North America. The group’s name “Imarhan” means “those who love” in Tamashek, the Tuareg language. By adding “Timbuktu”, they demonstrate their strong pride in their legendary home town.

The core members of IMARHAN TIMBUKTU are Mohamed Issa, his brother, guitarist Ousmane Ag Oumar El Ansari, and their two sisters, percussionists and backup vocalists Fadimata Walet Oumar [known to all as “Disco”] and Zeina Walet.

The album title, “Akal Warled” (Foreign Country), speaks about exile and the hardships endured by the Tuareg refugees currently living in the camps of Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Niger and Algeria. These refugees want to return to live in peace in their northern Mali homeland.



Missing pics on old SnC episodes

Katrin pointed out via the website, that some of the pictures in the shownotes aren’t loading. But then I noticed she was referring to show 098 six years ago. I’d been intending to sort out the unformatted show notes from that time but it is so time-consuming that we really need a whole team on the job. I think it will just have to wait. Sorry.


DubamixLiberté II - Dubamix (Paris, France)

Dubamix emerged in 2003 from one man’s (Greg’s) libertarian revolt and his visceral love for dub. The musical foundation of Dubamix is built on early dub reggae as much as today’s electro dub as well as Haydn, Bach and Dvorak.

The incorporation of excerpts from politician’s speeches highlights their contradictions and contrasts them with Dubamix’s libertarian, anticapitalist and anti-fascist stance.

The live shows (over 80 to date) bring his video mixes, samples and acoustic instruments into creative interaction.

Now Greg is back in 2014 with his second Dubamix album “Pour qui sonne le dub” (For whom the dub) which you can get free from Jamendo. 15 varied and solid tracks to lift the spirits. It’s been a permanent fixture on my music system in the house for a couple of weeks and I’m still loving it, even though I probably don’t get all the political nuances, the music is just so damned good.

He also has a new live set based on samples of yesterday and today and as you’d expect, he’s still revolting against social injustice and xenophobia.

Live shows this month at:

15/03  PARIS (75)


28/03  LIMOGES (87)

29/03  TOULOUSE (31)


MartyPartyAnthem of the Masses – MartyParty (South Africa)

MartyParty and Joker will be throwing down their unique brands of dance music grounded in deep bass on their upcoming North American tour. The two producers will wreck dancefloors around the nation with their hazy atmospherics and sultry-minded sonic vibes  – languorous stretches of synthy psychedelia, grime and deep bass rooted in their true love, hard-hitting hip-hop -  touching down in NYC, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, LA and more.

MartyParty (Martin Folb) is a sonic enigma – try as you might to peg his “signature” sound, the South African producer/DJ’s genre is decidedly unclassifiable. Whether he’s producing commercial hip hop as Martin Folb or making electronic music as MartyParty, there is no mistaking his sound, rich, melodic and always emotional, an unpredictable roller coaster ride through his new production and timeless catalog.

Martin Folb wasn’t always the life of the party—for years, he was a computer programmer in Silicon Valley. He eventually switched it up, swapping software programming for Ableton Live to produce his own genre-defying music, as well as joining forces with Ooah of The Glitch Mob as  the mega duo PANTyRAiD. The beat maestro has been busy this past year with PANtyRAiD’s full-length sophomore album PillowTalk.



Mostly children’s progress is measured by walking, first words, reading and all that other boring stuff. Well, an eight month old, close relative of mine has just broken new ground with a quite passable guitar chord shape and a decent flaring strum. Proud of him.


ADCAkashic Field – Another Dead Clown (Astoria, Queens, NYC)

Another Dead Clown (ADC) was founded as a sprawling musical collaboration between friends. The band  now consists of Chris O’Keeffe, Gerad O’Shea, Meagan Brus, and Ian Deming and often also features an extended cast of family, friends, and brave audience members participating in live performances and recordings.

It started as a joke between childhood friends. Another Dead Clown was the pseudonym substituted for the latest sketch of a song or stupid idea – the “band” responsible for trade-school homework assignments, guerilla-style open mic appearances, and leading many a late-night dive bar sing-a-long. By 2011, Chris was steadily recruiting a coterie of friends and family to join the organization, and the ranks of ADC swelled along with the hours logged in cramped apartments, spent swapping the roughest of demos and amassing an increasing arsenal of backlogged ideas.

Although recently transplanted to NYC, Gerad had returned to Cambridge, MA a handful of times to rejoin Chris and play songs as Another Dead Clown. To do so, Gerad borrowed Chris’s grandmother’s heirloom accordion and learned how to play it like a squishy piano. The guys narrowed the catalog down to focus on a svelte five tracks, largely based around which songs would sound nice with some added ukulele and\or banjo.

Another Dead Clown’s debut album, “This May Not Work” was released in June of 2013. ADC has continued to grow, change, and push one another to experiment, get loud, and include any and everyone who might have an interest in helping them make music.

La Sera: Losing to the Dark

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 03/11/2014 - 14:00

La SeraLosing to the Dark is the first excellent single from La Sera’s third album “Hour of the Dawn”, via talented LA vocalist Katy Goodman and band helmed by guitarist Todd Wisenbaker.

Goodman had the following to say of the album: “I wanted the new La Sera record to sound like Lesley Gore fronting Black Flag. I didn’t want it to be another record of me sad, alone in my room. I wanted to have fun playing music and writing songs with a band. We started playing faster, louder and more aggressively,” Goodman says. “I wanted to get that energy onto the album.”

In the summer of 2013, the group decamped to a sweltering studio in East Los Angeles with engineer Joel Jerome and banged out the ten songs that would become Hour of the Dawn “We wanted to make a classic American record,” Wisenbaker says. “The album was inspired by a lot of bands: The Pretenders, Minor Threat, X, The Smiths, The Cars and more.”

The new album arrives May 13th, 2014 on Hardly Art records.

Equals: Conveyor

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 03/10/2014 - 12:00

EqualsTrack one off the new full length record, Tracts.

“Equals’ music is dramatic, yet joyous and playful. The songs may sound simple at first, but complexity shines through after careful listening. Every song is meticulously arranged by bassist Alex Guzman, drummer Matt Toman, keyboardist Logan Wexler and guitarists Dylan Storey and Simon McDonald. Each part of every song — from the angular pulsing rhythms to the crisp, eclectic samples — has a purpose. The organic elements interweave with the synthetic elements, providing texture and layers that are extremely difficult to pull off live. Click tracks be damned, they fearlessly recreate multi-layered loops and samples, gracefully operating on the bleak notion that one wrong move can end a song in failure. Equals executes flawlessly, with character behind every note.” [Bio via US/THEM]
