Gig Preview: Discovery 2 with Karl Phillips, The Bulletproof Bomb, Kolo, Amy Odell and Chris Preston

The Justin Wayne Show - Thu, 01/22/2015 - 17:04


The first Discovery 2 show of 2015 features rock, ska, rapper Karl Phillips, raucous, edgy, indie punk from The Bulletproof Bomb, rock/pop from fast rising London trio Kolo, alternative songstress Amy Odell, 19-year-old singer/songwriter Chris Preston plus resident Discovery Dj Delphi.

Hear our preview including a track from each artists in this podcast.

The gig details Buy Tickets More about the artists KARL PHILLIPS

The last few years has seen Karl support Chase & Status, Example, Wiley, Reverend & The Makers, Skepta, RDGLDGRN & Alabama 3 on tour. Air time on numerous BBC Introducing shows, including BBC 6 Music.

Headline gigs at O2 Academy’s and a sell-out EP launch at Camden Barfly and squeezing in the odd gig in France. Karl even found time to gain support from the ‘Dont Flop’ Rap battle league after taking part in what might be the worlds first ever “guitar rap battle”.

Summers were spent in festival mode spreading the rock/rap/ska vibe as far as Latvia! Sharing stages with the likes of The Subways, Tinchy Stryder and Zane Lowe.


Their raucous edgy guitar driven sound has gained unprecedented attention including support by Zane Lowe on Radio 1, Gary Crowley BBC London, a headline slot on BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival. They have also played Leeds and Rob Da Banks stage at Bestival. Their debut EP was produced by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Yuck and The Palma Violets).

“Definitely a band that music appreciators from around the rocking globe should most certainly listen and watch closely for. Ace band.” -Forkster Rocks


Kolo are a three piece pop rock band based in London. Originally from Devon; Jon, Steve and Dan’s epic pop rock anthems have been charming audiences up and down the UK since 2006.

Their much anticipated debut album was produced in Nashville by Chris Henderson from 3 Doors Down .’Castro’, the first track off the album, ‘Who Wants to Rule the World?’ Comes out on January 19th 2015.

“I produced this album and I am still listening to it… every day.” -Chris Henderson, 3 Doors Down.

“Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music.” -Vic Morgan, BBC


From the depths of East London a dark soulful storm is brewing in the form of alternative songstress Amy Odell. The gritty sound that emanates from her pipes has an element to it that no other brother can touch. Amy contributed a vocal guest appearance on legendary Irish musician Gavin Friday’s album ‘Catholic’ after Gavin chose her personally to feature on the song ‘Land On The Moon’. Don’t be fooled by the lack of noise this siren is making. It has been a long time coming, and bubbling under the ground ready for the explosion of 2015


Chris is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from the Southwest of England primarily influenced by acts such as City and Colour, Daughter and Local Natives. Debut songs ‘Hold on’ and ‘Bridges’ were viewed over a thousand times each in less than 24 hours after being uploaded and and were each reposted.

Plastic Handgun: Introverts

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 01/22/2015 - 13:00

Plastic HandgunMark Di Giovanni, otherwise known as PLASTIC HANDGUN, is an independent musician and filmmaker based in Toronto, Canada who just released his first full album on January 11th that was composed entirely of experimental indie rock songs. “Involuntary Memories” was recorded over a 4 month period at the very end of this past year and touches on sub-genres like psych rock, post-rock and dream pop. He cited a few major influences in this endeavour, namely Animal Collective, Sunset Rubdown and Atlas Sound – as well as others.

The featured track “Introverts” takes the listener on an interesting ride, the seemingly symbiotic and dynamic musical layers leading toward the final moments as the surreal dreamlike world solidifies taking the song to wide-eyed heights into its final notes. Introverts is a stunning single, and we recommend partaking in the entire album, which can be downloaded through the band’s social sites below.

What’s Happening At Dave’s Lounge

Dave's Lounge - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 15:05

What’s this? Oh, y’know, just a viral video sensation hanging out with a podcaster and his future wife. (And guess which one of them forgot to turn the flash on?)

Dave, Kawehi, and Melissa

I had the opportunity to see Kawehi perform live in Raleigh last Saturday. The energy she puts into her performance is just tons of fun to watch. Also, her Ableton Live skills make me feel like a caveman rubbing two sticks together while she’s cooking with gas. I’ve got a long way to go.

I’ve captured some video from her Raleigh show here:

Check out her tour dates on her web site, and when you meet her, tell her Dave sent you.

Meanwhile, if you’re waiting for the next episode of Dave’s Lounge…

  • Show #301 is in the can! You can hear it first on BeatLounge Radio on Sunday, January 25, at 6:00 PM ET / 2300 UTC.
  • The episode will hit the podcast feed on January 30, though it might get to the Dave’s Lounge App a bit sooner.
  • From here on out, all show notes will include timestamps, so you can see when a particular song was played.
  • This is the first episode in which I announce what each song is after it’s played, rather than before. Do let me know how you like that  format.
  • There is new music from Natalie Walker in this episode. Yes. I’m rather stoked.

One more thing: Dave’s Lounge is no longer accepting Bitcoin donations, but will continue to encourage the use of Dwolla where I can. (I think I received a grand total of 0.02 BTC from that experiment, so no big loss.)

That’s all for now. For more updates, follow Dave’s Lounge on TwitterFacebook, and Ello.

Someday I Will Miss You: Dreaming

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 13:00

Someday I Will Miss YouNot too long ago a Croatian native informed us there’s not much you can do in their town of Karlovac except for taking long walks by its rivers and apparently “recording songs about ordinary love.” This comes straight from the perspective of a local solo outfit, ‘Someday I Will Miss You’, who had put together two excellent tracks this past January (‘Hold On’ and ‘Dreaming’) and a third track dubbed ‘Winter July’, released a few months later in August. They are all presumably for the band’s upcoming debut EP which I don’t think had an official release date yet (as far as I can see).

Today’s feature, ‘Dreaming’ has a gorgeous languid build, an intriguing composition of synth meets shoegaze instrumentation that has the most satisfying payout to all those who drink up the lo-fi song in its entirety. You can also find a self-titled track and a work in progress through their Soundcloud page with more goodness to follow, no doubt.

The Fleas: Born to Run

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 01/19/2015 - 13:00

The FleasReading UK five piece The Fleas have released Born To Run, a track taken from their Telling Tales EP, which will be out in April.

“The Fleas are a Reading-based five-piece who meld vintage influences and fresh grooves, landing somewhere between The Kinks and the Pixies. Their heady brew of expansive indie pop and funky folk-rock is elevated by an ear for inspirational melody, resulting in an irresistibly feel-good sound incorporating elements of The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Elvis Costello and Kirsty MacColl. Vocalist Piers peppers his lyrics with worldly wisdom, his voice embellished by gorgeous three-part harmonies from percussionist Bernadette and drummer Mannie, who, with Woody on double-bass and Chris on guitar, form an Anglo-Argentine backbone that infuses the band’s indie instincts with touches of Latin and jazz. The Fleas’ set at Manchester’s In The City was one of a hatful of sought-after festival slots, and the band have been aired on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2 and Absolute Radio, as well as performing two sessions for BBC Introducing. A forceful live proposition to boot, The Fleas are one bug you’d do well to catch this winter.” [bio]

At long last – I have working equipment and will return next week!

Three From Leith - Sun, 01/18/2015 - 22:58

I know – I’ve been absent again for a VERY long time. There have been a number of reasons for this, but the main one has been that the podcasting PC has not been working and I’ve not been able to record.

However, the acquisition of a used laptop from an ex-work colleague in the last week, followed by the purchase of an external soundcard, means that I am now finally up and running again and I’ll be recording this week for release next Tuesday (27th January).

If there are any subscribers still there, thanks for hanging on and I’ll be in your ears again shortly!

Malory Torr Live at Discovery 2 with Olly Andrews

Our very own Olly Andrews of Van Susans spoke to Mallory Torr at Discovery 2 a few months ago. Hear their full interview as well as Mallory’s live performance on stage at Discovery 2.

More about Mallory Torr


Malory Torr speaks to our own Olly Andrews in this podcast before her live recorded set.

Often described as ‘quirky and unusual’. Malory has a rare sound using a combination of ukulele, guitar and banjo to create her indie/pop originals. She’s a prolific songwriter , in the summer of 2013 Malory was featured as‘Uncharted Territory’ artist of the week by Richard Madeley on Terry Wogan’s show on BBCRadio2. Her track Heart of Gold was played on Dermot O’Leary’s show on BBCRadio2 in August. She was recently awarded runner up with her song ‘Utopian World’ in the national Song Academy Young Songwriter Competition 2013

Drawing upon her mixed background, having lived in both South Africa and Mexico, Malory creates music with the lyrics at the heart of every song. Her inspiration ranges from the song writing of legends, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell to the alternative styles of tUnE-yArDs, Dr Dog and St Vincent.

Her songs are simple but impressive with an inherent drama that calls to mind Regina Spektor…’ John Kennedy XFM – Dazed and Confused Magazine

Cam Penner: Memphis

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 01/18/2015 - 13:00

Cam PennerToday’s featured artist is Calgary, Alberta singer-songwriter Cam Penner and a track from his fifth quality effort, ‘To Build a Fire’. ‘Memphis’ is the sixth song on this stellar 10 song folk/americana release from 2013.

Cam’s songs look to come from the life experiences starting when at eighteen Penner left small town life to wander the highways and back roads of North America. A year later he found himself in Chicago serving mystery soup and stale bread to two hundred and fifty homeless men a day. Next, a women & children’s shelter, then youth shelters and detox centers, thirteen years. Cam would spend cathartic hours writing and playing his guitar, exorcising his emotions through music and eventually decided to become a full time touring artist.

His inspiring bio best states that ‘To Build a Fire’ is full of hope. It’s full of love. It’s electrifying and provoking. It’s full of everything we should be looking for, not only musically, but in life.

“The important thing is to polish wisdom and the mind in great detail. If you sharpen wisdom, you will understand what is just and unjust in society and also the good and the evil of this world; then you will come to know all kinds of arts and you will tread different ways. In this manner, no one in this world will succeed in deceiving you. It is after this stage that you will arrive at the wisdom of strategy. The wisdom of strategy is entirely distinct. Even right in the middle of a battle where everything is in rapid movement, it is necessary to attain the most profound principle of strategy, which assures you an immovable mind. You must examine this well.”

Huxtable: Attack

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 01/17/2015 - 13:00

HuxtableHuxtable are a 2 piece riff rock band based in Kilmarnock Scotland, formed in early 2014. The duo of Jordan Yates and Marc William Brown released their debut release as a mini-album in July called “We Are Huxtable”. The track dubbed “Attack” is from this first mini-album and is very solid effort, hitting a roaring level of musical urgency along the lines of RATM or even Cleft, and cementing their place among bands to watch in this next year.

The duo have just announced their first Glasgow headline show which will take place on 28th February at The Admiral Bar and it sounds like they’ve got a new EP release planned out and currently in the works. Be sure to check out the official video below and get the latest news at their following social links.
