Kye Alfred Hillig: Ugly We Were Born

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 06/12/2014 - 14:00

Kye Alfred Hillig Its time for a change for Tacoma, Washington based singer-songwriter Kye Alfred Hillig. Apparently his last two records have drawn heavy from roots, folk and Americana but as a songwriter Hillig felt it was time for a change.

His newest album “Real Snow” is his third studio album as a solo artist, and describes as his version of a ‘folk hip hop record’, full of everything but the acoustic guitar his fanbase has grown accustomed to.

“I hope this change in sound is a surprise, a shock really” Hillig explains. “Not that I want to alienate people but I want to shake things up. I want people to be as excited about different and new as I am.”

We took a listen to the entire release and are happy to say its solid all the way through, one of the best releases we’ve had the privilege to hear thus far in 2014. A few of our other absolute favorite tracks from this eclectic 12 song full-length include “Useless Keys”, “Remains of Elephants”, “When You Were a Waitress”, and the attention grabbing opener “Cold Front.” Do yourself a favor and check the Bandcamp site below where he is currently offering up this entire release for FREE.

New God: Firework

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 06/10/2014 - 14:00

New GodIn the spring of 2013, Baltimore-based art-pop band New God, lead by brothers Kenny and Curt Tompkins, began crafting songs for their sophomore LP, Firework.

Sessions continued in Baltimore throughout the summer of 2013, and by early fall they had completed a large collection of songs that would eventually be boiled down to the lean eight tracks found on Firework. The album is a slight departure from the sugar-rush fuzz-pop of their debut, 2012′s polished lo-fi Motorcar, but maintains the stylized production values, thick harmony vocals and sun-soaked melodies that originally won them so many Beach Boys comparisons.

New God is currently planning a tour in support of Firework, which will be released digitally and on vinyl and CD by Yellow K Records on July 29, 2014.

Trevor Larkin joins us again in the studio and we are invaded by masters of their instruments as The Oz Noy Trio dropped by to have a chat before their show at Main Street Studios. Yes, we’ll have some excellent independent music for your ears as well.

The current amalgamation of The Oz Noy Trio includes Oteil Burbridge on bass, Keith Carlock on drums and of course, Oz Noy on guitar. If you listed all of the current touring players, these chaps will have played with all of them. We got to discussing getting in the groove, the zone, learned about the Oz Noy Trio’s most recent release, “Twisted Blues, Volume 2″ and were blown away later with their live performance at Main Street Studios.

The Afghan Whigs: Matamoros

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 06/08/2014 - 14:00

The Afghan WhigsThe Afghan Whigs have returned with their first new album in sixteen years, titled ‘Do to The Beast’ under one of our favorites, the Subpop label.

Do to the Beast was created in L.A., New Orleans, Cincinnati, and Joshua Tree – a virtual map of the band’s past and present homes. “The album was named in Cincinnati, which is especially fitting,” singer Greg Dulli notes. “I was recording a beatbox track for the song ‘Matamoros,’ and my friend Manuel Agnelli (of Italian rock band Afterhours) was in the control room. After I finished, he said it sounded like I was singing ‘Do to the beast what you do to the bush.’ And I thought, ‘Brother, you just named the record.’”

The group is currently gearing up to start a European tour at the end of June and just added a few extra dates to their forthcoming US tour, coming this Fall.

H.M. Hammarin: It Began Again

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 06/07/2014 - 14:00

H.M. HammarinGothenburg Sweden indie artist H.M. Hammarin has just released what appears to be his newest single, ‘It Began Again’ which I am thoroughly enjoying, partially due to some similarities to a favorite artist, Dave Wakeling (from English Beat and General Public). Whilst there are some aforementioned similarities like the smoking sax throughout, it definitely is unique in several ways and is quite the quality track.

A bio on a company website, translated from Swedish calls H.M.H an incurable hypochondriac, tormented by OCD and sometimes provocative narcissistic packaged with a good dose of self distance and bizarre humor.

To listen to more recent tracks, it appears that H.M. Hammarin released a new EP earlier this year around March called ‘Ham Acting’ which you can get to by hitting up the Soundcloud link below.

Edinburgh Man #169

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 06/05/2014 - 20:07

I should have recorded this podcast on a tram shouldn’t I? I missed a trick there. Unfortunately the thought didn’t occur to me until halfway through the podcast. Never mind.

There were some grumblings from various sources about last week’s (early morning) podcast that seemed to suggest it contained a bit too much rambling and uninteresting chat. So this week I try desperately not to talk as much… and to play more music. I don’t think it really worked out that way though. I’m sure I probably talked as much as normal. I think we may just have to face the fact that it’s a physical impossibility for me not to ramble at length about nothing in particular. I’m so very sorry.
