Dave’s Lounge #310: Old Friends And New (Revised)

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 17:57

00DL310small(Note: This is a revised version of Dave’s Lounge #310. I explain why at the beginning of the show.)

So this week, I’m starting a little experiment. I’ve been looking at lot at the download stats for this show on Libsyn. There’s many countries listed there, and quite a few cities. I thought it might be fun if listeners of this show in the same cities were able to get together to meet each other. This show seems like it’s been around long enough to warrant such meetups.

We’ll start this experiment where a good many tech experiments begin — San Francisco and Oakland. The last episode of Dave’s Lounge got 99 downloads from this area. So who’s listening out in the Bay Area? Leave a comment below and introduce yourselves to me, and to each other. It might be fun to make some new friends.

As for the music this week, we welcome back quite a few return visitors this week, as well as couple new ones who are making some great music…

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 12:00
French Cassettes “Thirteen Bay Area bands were given three days to record a song with producer Jeff Saltzman in his studio in Oakland, using the same room, same equipment, and same level of Jeff’s extreme sass. The compilation will be released as the debut from OIM Records, a new label focusing on indie rock in Oakland and the Bay Area. A special limited edition run of vinyl will be pressed, along with a handful of videos to accompany various songs on the album. The compilation will be offered digitally for free, while the limited edition, colored vinyl will be for sale.” [via OIM Records]

Ded an alt rock/Indie band with twist of funk, consisting of four brothers from Yorkshire who moved to the Highlands. They’re racking up airplay on XFM, BBC Scotland, BBC6 Music, have performed at Wide Days Convention, Liverpool Sound City. They will be appearing at this year’s T In The Park and Xpo North. This Discovery showcase will be their London stop to promote  release of their forthcoming Ep ‘Moving In Slow Motion’.

“It’s an explosive affair when you see Ded Rabbit live. I’d put them up there with Catfish And TheBottlemen as one of the best live acts around at the moment.” – Jim Gellatly

“Undeniable stage presence and performance skills”(-)”An exciting live band that will appeal widely and who are definitely festival-ready” – David Balfour, Record Of The Day.


With vocals as pure as the diamond she derives her name from, DELAIRE is ready to shine. Drawing inspiration from the spectacular Delaire Sunrise Diamond, her addictive melodies are only matched by sensual, yet subtle lyrical stylings.

Like the precious stone itself, the end result is a composition of conflicting qualities. Powerful, yet intricate. Controlled, yet pure. Composed, but natural. Delaire played at the recent Innocent festival and her new single ‘Belief’ is picking up airplay on Amazing Radio.


The three piece Liverpudlian punk rock band put on live energetic shows, revealing mega catchy songs, tight hooks and lovely harmonies. The band have played across the UK, Ireland and toured  Europe in 2012 and 2013 with Vamos.

Sheepy’s debut self-titled album was released on Blang Records in January 2014 with singles “These Clothes” and “Don’t Know Much” coming from it, both tracks receiving lots of praise and buzz. The band will be performing tracks off their forthcoming EP ‘Wild’ (Blang Records) at Discovery.

“a melodic, hook laden classic – so adverse and unconcerned as to what is gracing the pages of the NME”, Louder Than War


Think pop melodies, rich harmonies of Motown with dark soulful beats and modern grooves of the UK’s underground music scenes, mixed with a powerful jazz inspired husky vocal and that’s the sound of one Rita Satch. Widely known for her soulful and seductive live performances, Rita Satch has fast developed a reputation as an unforgettable presence in Australia’s neo-soul scene. Ahead of her Glastonbury festival appearance Rita plays Discovery.

“There is no questioning the sensationally sultry timbre of Satch’s voice”, Vulture Magazine


A self taught musician, plays blues and folk influenced music with African sentiments. He has worked as a session guitarist with artists including Tina Turner, Quincy Jones, Ruby Turner, Evelyn Thomas,Imagination, Errol Brown, Paul Weller, Wham!, Suggs, Erasure.

In the early 80’s he joined Private Lives with John Adams who signed to EMI and made a well received album, which gave him a pop profile.  He’s worked with a variety of African artists, including Baba Maal, Moudi Kabalou, for whom he produced a Kora Award nominated album.

Pomegranates: 50’s

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 12:00

PomegranatesPomegranates were a indie rock band based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Since 2006 up to about 2012 they issued three albums and three EPs, with a load of touring that went on between. 2012 saw the release of the fourth studio album “Heaven” with Austin based label Modern Outsider. From the looks of it they successfully funded the entirety or at least a good part of it through a Kickstarter campaign.

Today’s feature, the single “50’s” from the album “One Of Us” was issued on 10/26/10 via Afternoon Records. Sadly the group broke reportedly broke up in 2013 although their quality music still strongly lives on. It also appears they’ve been sending out some overdue Kickstarter packages in the last few months and they may still be playing the occasional secret show now and then. Anyway, enjoy the track and keep up to date with their periodic updates at their Facebook site below.

Edinburgh Man #209

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Tue, 06/16/2015 - 20:26

Here’s a tip for any would-be professional podcasters – if you make a playlist more than three weeks ago it’s always a good idea to listen to it again before you record the show – just in case you’ve gone off any of the tracks. As perhaps happened on this week’s show. I feel awful about it – I’ve never done that before. Many apologies – especially for the artist in question. I normally only ever play tracks that I really like. I must of been in a funny mood when I chose it. Anyway, see if you can guess which one it will be.

Regarding this week’s photo – you’ll just have to listen to the show to find out what the score is with Q The Winged Serpent there.

Tiny Rhymes: Arrows

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 06/16/2015 - 12:00

Tiny RhymesTiny Rhymes is a indie/chamber-folk group with members from Canada and Buffalo, New York. They are releasing the lead single “Arrows” as a free download off their upcoming album which arrives officially in one week on June 23rd.

Band lead Sharon Mok has always played piano, but decided to pick up the guitar for this current batch of songs, and set out to create melodies influenced by her childhood experience with both Chinese opera and classical music. While writing and recording in Buffalo, she met cellist Katie Weissman and they instantly hit it off. Weissman’s diverse technique and smooth, dark melodies added necessary dimension to the songs.

Check out the live performance of “Arrows” further below and several other great videos through their YouTube profile.

Strange & Primitive: That Big City Glow

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 06/14/2015 - 12:00
Strange & Primitive “[Toronto based] Strange & Primitive announces the release of their post-punk revival album, Strange & Primitive, due out August 21st. Structurally dynamic and inspired by the cinema, the duo takes the listener on a visual journey with a blend of earthy and synthetic tones.

“True to their namesake, Strange & Primitive incorporates primitive tribal beats to evoke abstract emotions. Graham Fish and Jeff Musgrave are inspired by artists whose approach is to create new landscapes within their music. Fish says, “We want people listening to our music to feel transported, the way they might while watching a great film.”

“The first single off their album “That Big City Glow,” eludes atmospheric verses with a celebrating, driving chorus, while exposing the underbelly and the inability to see the shadows for the lights.” [GLG press release]

Roadhouse 537

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 06/13/2015 - 20:35

A rare intermittent Internet issue has left me tethered to my iPhone and pushed a new edition of The Roadhouse back to next week. Enjoy what I hope will be the last Roadhouse Rewind before the holidays - the Chicago-centric Roadhouse 312.

There's a good variety of blues in the 312th Roadhouse, with a stronger-than-usual emphasis on Chicago blues. The hour features Luther Allison, Big Bill Morganfield, Smokey Wilson, Todd Wolfe Band, and a great live track to remember Gary Moore. From Chicago to New Jersey to Georgia to Ireland, it's a well-rounded hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

I Am the Albatross: Port City

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 06/13/2015 - 12:00

I Am the Albatross‘Port City’ is an ode to the part of I-10 which runs between Texas and Louisiana and passes through the many industrial port cities that lie between Houston and New Orleans,” says vocalist and guitarist Jesse Berkowitz of Austin-based trio I Am The Albatross.

The band’s debut album “Lonesome Son” (arriving August 7th via Rail Rider), is a natural, but substantial progression from the its early-2014 EP, which Ovrld called “Haunting and alien, full of menace and fire.”

“It’s a rock record for sure,” Berkowitz says matter-of-factly of the new group of tunes that mightily show off the influence of Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Kyuss, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Clutch. Berkowitz’s heavy, blistering guitar work is complemented by the no-nonsense contributions of Giuseppe Ponti on bass and vocals, and Marc Henry on drums.

Berkowitz continues to discuss “Port City,” saying, “The song is about that time spent alone, driving. On long drives it’s easy to get lost in thought and caught in a flood of memories.”

Berkowitz goes on to explain that “Lonesome Son” is “a record about things ending. It’s about searching, aging, and all the irreparable change that comes with the passage of time. It’s very much inspired by life in Austin.”
