Gig Preview: Discovery 2 with The Harlots, Kazo, Rosie and the Goldbug, Indigo Face and Whelligan

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 05/21/2015 - 05:32


Our May Discovery 2 showcase on Thursday, May 28th features rock’n’rollers The Harlots who are launching their new single, Stockport band Kazo who play excellent dynamic rock, Cornish purveyors of hectic electronica Rosie and the Goldbug, the ethereal vocals of Indigo Face, and busking pop troubadour Whelligan.

The podcast contains a song from each of the artists as well as Alex KW’s and me discussing this show and other Discovery 2 news.

More about the artists

THE HARLOTSdiscovery2-may15

A rock and roll four-piece straight out of London town.  They’ve got loads of energy and plenty of hit singles up their sleeves. In two years they have performed at Camden’s legendary Koko twice, toured across Europe and smashed the London circuit. The band have just finished recording the debut album with Top 10 producer Rory Atwell (Palma Violets/Vaccines).

“Top 5 best gigs at the club in the last ten years” (DEATH DISCO)

“Huge energy, like The Vaccines and Strokes in their early days” (UML)


Four young men from Stockport near Manchester who are playing it the old fashioned way. Learning their trade like the best bands did in the 60’s, playing gigs, where ever they can, crafting their live shows. Think early Led Zeppelin, mixed with The Red Hot Chilli Peppers with a sprinkling of Radiohead and you have some idea of what the guys are about.

In just under a year Kazo have been featured on countless radio stations in the UK, including the coveted ‘future classic’ slot on the North West’s largest rock station Real Radio XS performed at festivals and gigs around Manchester including an after show party for Noel Gallagher in Liverpool.

“Kazo’s songs stand by themselves. They’re dynamic and unequivocally unique. …. a band to watch out for.” – Dan Broad (Producer ofHappy Mondays, Peter Hook, Badly Drawn Boy, Johnny Marr).


Cornish purveyors of hectic electronica Rosie & The Goldbug are roaring into 2015 with a new record deal, live dates and a brand new single; ‘Running In The Dark’. Drawing on the vintage eccentricities of Alison Goldfrapp and Kate Bush and dripping with insanely catchy pop hooks, ‘Running In The Dark’ is released on May 4th via Public Recordings. The brainchild of lead singer and keyboard player Rosie Vanier and named after an Edgar Allen Poe story, Rosie & The Goldbug first came to the nation’s attention whilst still in their teens, with the release of their critically acclaimed debut, ‘Rosie & The Goldbug’ Throughout 2015 the band will be taking their new songs on the road.

“Somewhere between Siouxsie & The Banshees and Cyndi Lauper having a sing-off with Kate Bush.” Q Magazine

“A throwback to more interesting times.” -Simon Price, The Independent

“Kate Bush on crack with Goldfrapp on synths.” -The Guardian


Indigo Face are Italian singer/songwriter Mariachiara Terragin and French producer
and multi-instrumentalist Maxime Obadia. Mariachiara and Maxime are 2014 first-class honours graduates of BIMM (London) whose alumni include Tom Odell, George Ezra and James Bay. Single Fearless was supported last year by BBC Introducing London’s Gary Crowley and the band recently opened Sound for Sight fundraiser concert at The Tabernacle alongside Nate James and Byrn Terfel.
Indigo Face released their first EP, State Of Alert, on March 6th 2015 via Spinnup.

“Transfixing to say the least” -EQ Music Blog

“Their beats are infectious & their first EP ‘State Of Alert’ has got us asking – can it be the weekend forever? This may be the first time you’ve heard Scouted artists Indigo Face but trust us, they are here to stay.” -SPINNUP

“Stunning vocals and harmonies” -Muff Winwood


Hailing from Birkenhead on the sunny North West Coast of England, Jamie Whelligan is a pop troubadour in the classic late 60s mode, with a penchant for crafted songs; combining sweet melodies with unusual arrangements.

After releasing two eclectic albums online (Salad Days and Pipes Plus), he has recently added “The Dancing Bear EP” to his canon; a 4 track EP filled with with lush strings and drenched in sun-kissed, West Coast harmonies.

With his trusty acoustic guitar and the help of his accomplices; Nick Frater (production/keys) Jack Wolvey (drums), Simon Hempenstall (bass), Helen McLoone (flute) and Dave O’Connell (lead guitar), Whelligan has recently began translating his recorded material to venues around London.

Whelligan also performs his songs as a solo artist; most notably and regularly as a Busker on the London Underground

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 05/16/2015 - 12:59

The 273rd Roadhouse features new music from Chicago and an underlying theme that's not revealed until late in the show. Matt Schofield, Willie Buck, Susan Tedeschi, Billy Boy Arnold, Eric Bibb and seven or eight other great artists are just enough to fill another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Super Magic Hats: This Last Week

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 05/16/2015 - 12:00

Super Magic HatsSuper Magic Hats is a Melbourne-via-London based musician, beatmaker and producer whose work embraces melody, noise and experimentation. As an accomplished guitarist and bass player, live instrumentation makes its way into many Super Magic Hats tracks, while a love of the unusual leads to electronic gadgets such as Yamaha’s Tenori-On featuring prominently. Super Magic Hats also loves experimenting with a wide range of samples, including chopped up vocals, field recordings of streetscapes and everything in between. This sound is underpinned by interest in production trickery and effects, which washes intricate edits, delicately placed details and other sonic mutations with layers of reverb and delay.

Today’s featured track comes from ‘Slowly’, the 3rd EP following up from last year’s “Kumori” on Seattle’s Hush Hush Records. Slowly is a bright and bubbly collection of tracks that see Super Magic Hats exploring an upbeat, melodic and glitchy musical territory, loosely focused around the theme of falling in love. Slowly brings to the fore Super Magic Hats’ J-Pop influences and playful, Gold Panda-esque sample slicing, pairing this with a growing maturity as a producer.

Slowly is Super Magic Hats’ first collaboration with Japan’s Tanukinieri Records, a prolific and eclectic netlabel that has been listed by Pitchfork & MTV81, among others, as one of the essential labels in Japan right now.

Jeremy Bass: Firefly

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 05/15/2015 - 12:00
Jeremy Bass Today’s Dose is by Jeremy Bass and is from his album New York In Spring which is to be Self-Released on June 9th, 2015. This one of two seasonal albums released in 2015, earlier he released Winter Bare.

“For the last decade, Brooklyn-based songwriter Jeremy Bass has been the Musical Director of The Secret City, the OBIE Award (Off-Broadway Theater Awards) winning performance gathering. Bass started with the group when its membership numbered in the single digits, and has seen The Secret City’s membership grow to the thousands during his tenure.

“Even with such a substantial and supportive artistic community as an integral part of his daily life, Bass wrote his new pair of albums in literal isolation. Returning to single living in Brooklyn after a rough divorce in late 2013, Bass found himself secluded in an empty house, sifting through his memories.” [bio via Fanatic]

Crookram: Crookrilla

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 05/14/2015 - 12:00

CrookramNetherlands based artist Crookram (Chris Angelovski) hails from The Hague, with today’s featured track coming from his 2010 release, ‘Through Windows’.

Angelovski said much of his inspiration and many of his samples come from his parents’ record collection, which contained much 1970s jazzrock and jazzfunk. Its a great blend and really monumental when you can equate a great music riff with some great visuals from an old film, such as in the case of ‘The Good, The Bad, & The Gypsy’ linked to further below.

The album is available on bandcamp, where you can downloaded in much higher quality digital formats, including FLAC, OGG and ALAC.
