Cavalry: Everything

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 04/03/2016 - 13:40
Cavalry “Emerging indie five-piece Cavalry have announced the release of their brand new single Everything. The Merseyside quintet’s exquisite latest effort, the sumptuous sound of a band making music at their own spectacularly slow motion speed, arrives ahead of what promises to be a busy few months with slots at Liverpool Sound City and BBC Music Day.

“Drawing influences from the likes of The National and The Maccabees, the alternative outfit’s successful 2015 singles ‘Soak’ and ‘An Understanding’ saw them gain attention from The Guardian and Music Week, alongside radio support from Huw Stephens (Radio One), Janice Long (Radio 2) and Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music).

“With support slots for British Sea Power and Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks already under their belt and additional single releases planned throughout 2016, Cavalry’s profile is only set to increase further in the coming months.

Cavalry’s Everything is was released on 1st April via Fierce Panda Records and will be is available to purchase on iTunes and Spotify.” [via Super Cat PR]

Roadhouse 579

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 04/02/2016 - 22:29
Let's call this edition of The Roadhouse tough as chrome with a little more blues rock than usual and a couple of extended tracks from some Roadhouse favorites. Guy King, Joe Bonamassa, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Gary Clark, Jr, and Peter Karp featuring Mick Taylor - all are driving the hour. Even the slower tracks have a toughness to them. But tough or tender, fast or slow, you know the 579th Roadhouse will be another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

Kelvin: Give It All

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 04/02/2016 - 12:00

KelvinKelvin is an electronic indie pop band from Kristiansand, Norway who navigate wide musical landscapes with their signature electro sounds. The band members formed from a wide range of musical backgrounds around 2014 and have since released a few singles, as well as their first music video, and have had the opportunity to open for the band ZZ Top in Poland for about 11,000 people.

Their song Give It All has a great build via the vocals of singer Oda Ulvøy, slowly trying to escape the darker introspective depths before viscerally exploding into a soul barring force of hope and light by songs end, just before the inevitable fall of night. At least that’s what we felt… The single was released on the 18th of March.

Edinburgh Man #229

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Fri, 04/01/2016 - 13:45

I like to try and do podcasts on Thursday nights, but yesterday was a crazy busy day so I wasn’t able to put together a playlist in time. Instead I collated the playlist this morning in Brew Lab while enjoying a (free) coffee. Actually, I suspect I drank too many free coffees this morning because within a couple a minutes of starting this show I had a blazing headache. I struggled to the end like a trouper though. Made easier by all the great music, including tracks from OhBree, King Post Kitch, Buddy Holliday Pegasissy, and more.

Skinny Blonde: King

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 04/01/2016 - 12:00
Skinny Blonde Skinny Blonde – the musical alias of 22-year-old New York student and resident Michael Turzilli – takes upbeat pop and turns it on its self-aware head. Often satirical in nature, Turzilli’s music draws the line between taking ourselves too seriously and not taking ourselves seriously enough. His debut EP, City Girls [out 3rd June], explores the creative process and dense community of artists in New York with a sharp and realistic tongue. He explores how quickly the artistic process can turn narcissistic, not leaving anyone free from critique – even himself. [via GLG Pub]

Ghost King: Bones 1 & 2

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 03/31/2016 - 12:00

Ghost KingOur featured song today is the excellent conjoined two-part track, “Bones 1 & 2” by the band Ghost King, who throw a rope up from the rabbit hole, inviting you to slip down into their dark psychedelic world.

Ghost King is a Bronx-based foursome that have been banging out rock and roll in the basement since they were eight years old. The band was formed after Carter McNeil (vocals/guitar) finished touring/playing drums with Spires. Inspired by his experiences on the road, McNeil decided to form his own band and reconnected with long time childhood friends Tom D’Augustino (drums), Lee Hayden (bass), and Andrew Wolfson (guitar/synth; post-album) to help shape his vision.

Their debut album, BONES, was recorded live in 3 days and officially releases tomorrow, on April 1st via Fleeting Youth Records! If you can’t wait a day you can pre-order below via Bandcamp.

Kinder Than Wolves: Hover

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 03/30/2016 - 12:00
Kinder Than Wolves Orlando trio Kinder Than Wolves will release their debut EP Mean Something, 15th April. The second single from it, “Hover” is today’s Dose

“Delicate and hazy, the EP gently smolders like a cool blue flame. The shy flicker of the guitar is an invitation to step into the waterfall of sound on display.

“For Kinder Than Wolves the process of writing and recording their first album was a collaborative effort. All three members are audio engineers by trade, but it was singer and guitarist Paige Coley who produced, engineered, and mixed the EP in their converted studio/home. Coley says, “The title ‘Mean Something’ was chosen partly as a reminder for our future selves to remember why we make music.” Coley, combines her aqueous vocals with Ryan Snow’s shimmering guitar and Grant Freeman’s rolling drums.
