Static Shock: ‘Till Death

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 06/17/2014 - 14:00

Static ShockLA experimental beatmaker Static Shock has recently created a cohesive sixteen minute aural suite entitled ‘Till Death’, a masterpiece of unique sample laden pieces, each one flowing into the next, all high quality, which can be really rare to find in this style of soundscape, (especially with so unique moments fitting together back-to-back like you find here).

The project has several influences stated, such as producers like DJ Shadow, Madlib, and Cut Chemist. Many of the samples come directly from Static Shock’s late grandparents’ record collection. They both recently passed away, and left him a treasure trove of old vinyl – jazz, big band, blues, and comedy.

This suite was produced as one solid track so that listeners can absorb the entire thing in one sitting and is intended to be one cohesive listening experience, not chopped up into bits and pieces. Get those headphones out, its one of our longest Daily Dose features to date.

Live Session: Brady Goss at Sinclair Estate Vineyards

The Justin Wayne Show - Mon, 06/16/2014 - 16:56

I had an excellent afternoon with Brady Goss talking about his hard-earned musical career and where he’ll be headed in the future. We stole some time at Sinclair Estate Vineyards in Walla Walla, Washington where they have a lovely grand piano which Brady rattles and shakes with the best of them. In this live interview and session you’ll also hear him play guitar, proving his development as a musician and an artist has just begun.

Brady Goss has become something of a northwest institution across Oregon and Washington in the last few years. His signature piano man stylings akin to one of his biggest influences, Jerry Lee Lewis,  have brightened the stages of fairs, celebrations, bars, club rooms and all other sorts of musical gatherings. Having added guitar to his repertoire and now sometimes appearing with a band, he’s coming into his own and look to the future and a possible transition from playing mostly covers to playing mostly his own songs.

Trivial Shields: Amerikan

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 06/15/2014 - 13:00

Trivial ShieldsWe featured Trivial Shields (the project of Christian Carpenter) once before, now in preparation for the upcoming Trivial Shields EP, Vassal States, he’s releasing a segue-single entitled Amerikan which is today’s Dose.

Christian says: “I spent most of last year in Istanbul and traveling around Turkey. My first time living for an extended period abroad triggered an onslaught of peripheral neuroses that remained hidden back in the familiar stream of my American life. These common mini-existential crises were a powerful frame for my experience abroad and the primary inspiration for this song.”

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.
