Paper Beat Scissors: Go On

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 01/02/2016 - 13:00

Paper Beat ScissorsHeaded by vocalist Tim Crabtree, Paper Beat Scissors is best described as a musical monstrosity deposited in Halifax, Nova Scotia after the first years in Burnley, England.

While the eponymous debut album was concerned with ends, Go On focuses on starting again; putting your head down and pushing forward. The songs alternately shimmer and float, while reserving the right to occasionally punch you in the gut for good measure.

Produced by Crabtree, Go On was set in motion in London, Ontario in 2013 with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes). Fleshed out in Nova Scotia, tracks were bounced around Montreal, New York, and even rural Lancashire, before the album was mixed by Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin). Crabtree’s reputation as an orchestrator has been growing following symphony and chamber orchestra concerts across Canada and his arrangements give a unique stamp to Go On. The album was officially released on August 14, 2015.

Best of 2015

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Fri, 01/01/2016 - 23:22

It’s the Edinburgh Man Best of 2015 show!

If you listened to the show throughout 2015 you’ll know that I had some issues with the regularity of the show in terms of duration, content and release dates. Normally at the end of the year I produce two shows comprising a listener voted top 50 tracks of the year. This year, I just didn’t have the time to devote to putting such a show together. However, in making the “weekly” shows I stick a rating in the comments field of the tracks – this helps me select the music for each show. So this year, instead of doing a listener selection, I just sorted all the tracks I played by my rating, and out popped a 25 track show! No more thought and preparation has gone into this show – other than pouring myself a big glass of Drambuie – so it’s likely to be as much of a surprise to me as you.

A quick announcement this time. It’s been over 3 months and I wanted to explain what’s been happening with my health.

Thanks to everyone who sent kind wishes during this difficult time. I very much appreciate it. Just like the Terminator “I’ll be back!”. Have agreat start to 2015!

Sinnerman: Do It Like They Showed You

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 12/29/2015 - 13:00

SinnermanSinnerman is Sam Jackson, an artist from London who recently released the excellent rock track ‘Do It Like They Showed You‘. This second effort from the six-track EP, Lend Us Your Era [Part 1] appears to be his debut single and is a very hopeful and uplifting song for the countdown into the final days of 2015. You can pick up this entire release via Bandcamp at the link below.

As our description likely doesn’t do it much justice, the EP is best described as such: “Lend Us Your Era is for an age that pieces together its own identity from those that came before it. Part 1 is work and ambition and time and relationships through the eyes of someone getting squashed in between times. You might’ve seen such a someone before – a Lebowski or Tatischeff or Doc Sportello.”

Skyline Hotel: Winter’s Warmth

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 12/27/2015 - 13:00
Skyline Hotel Washington DC indie pop/rock band Skyline Hotel have a new EP, Sparks of Light, coming out January 19, 2016.

“Skyline Hotel infuses pop/rock with the guitar driven sounds of the ‘70s and sensitive, emotion-laden feel of the ‘90s. Born and raised in Rockville, MD, brothers Jeff and Jon Lee sought shelter in crafting songs during their teenage years. Jon’s endearing songwriting reflects on his past while Jeff is a producer and multi-instrumentalist fascinated with drawing emotion out of song. Their unique strengths and differences culminate into the alluring pop/rock style of their new self-produced EP, Sparks of Light.” [bio]
