I'm slicing up the blues pie in this week's edition of The Roadhouse, with a set of post-war blues, another fine acoustic set and some blues from relatively younger artists. 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.

Bonsai.: I Like You Man

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 11/13/2014 - 15:00

BonsaiBonsai. is an excellent new Brooklyn based band made up of singer-songwriter Simone Stevens, Greg McMullen on guitar and pedal steel, and Bryan Bisordi on drums and bass. Their first EP released in May was produced, engineered, and mixed by Dan Molad whose worked with some of our absolute favorites like Via Audio, Elizabeth and the Catapult and Here We Go Magic.

Bonsai’s songstress, Simone Stevens says of today’s featured single, “I live in NYC and it is filled with men and women consumed with careers or art. In the craziness if you meet someone who genuinely makes you forget city weariness for a minute you really cherish it.”

A residency at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn as well as a few more local tour dates to the New York area can be found at their newish website below, or alternatively in their Twitter feed.

Madi Anne Davis joins us on the show today to talk about her early-in-life inspiration, her excellent first EP and what she’s got in store for us as she grows and continues her musical career. You’ll also hear some dog paws on the hardwood floor (some during the Madi Davis interview) as well as some great new realindie music.

We’ve also announced the launch date for our first volume of One Takes which we’re using to generate some income for the new station, Maven FM. You’ll be able to get it on Monday, November 17th and it paves the way for more volumes to come! It’s a few things we’ve never done before – putting together an exclusive recordings compilation and tried to raise any money for the show, so we need to thank the artists involved including Laura Marie, Roaming Herds of Buffalo, Van Susans and Pepper and Shepherd as well as Beatnik Geek Records for helping us through the release process.

Check it out over at

Please let us know how we do, if you see anything we can do better!
