Three From Leith - Tue, 09/01/2015 - 04:30

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Well, this was a first – a show recorded on the iPad, live, and flying by the seat of my pants! Other than a slightly fluffed vocal and soudbed coming in a little too soon at the end of one song, it went pretty well (although hearing what I said coming back through the headphones a fraction of a second after I said it was really off-putting). Still, it’s good to try something different every now and again to keep you on your toes. Enjoy the tunes – there’s a real feel of energy behind this week’s selection.

Peur – Explosions

My Cruel Goro – Crapford

Zurich – Chemical / Menace

The soundbed was ‘In The Sky (Original Mix)’ by Karan & Shivil
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Hezekiah Jones: The Dark Heart’s Out

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 08/30/2015 - 12:00

Hezekiah JonesHezekiah Jones is the musical vehicle for Raphael Cutrufello, a Philadelphia-based musician who has been recording with his bandmates–AKA the family Jones–since 2006. Drawn to the cartography of imaginary worlds, Raphael began writing soundtracks to nonexistent science fiction films in middle school. He has written about everything from the inability to grow a proper beard to letters from 30 years in the future, to psychic mobility, or the lack thereof.

In Loving Memory of oosi Lockjaw marks a significant departure—and expansion—in style for Hezekiah Jones–this album is the first time the live band has participated in the recording process. Up until this release, the albums were recorded layer by layer on out­dated equipment in bedrooms and basements across Philadelphia.

Their newest creation, In Loving Memory of oosi Lockjaw, will be released by Woodfarm Records in November of 2015.

We Came As Strangers: Eyedom

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 08/29/2015 - 12:00

We Came As StrangersToday’s featured track is the latest single from the English band We Came As Strangers, whose new album ‘Eyedom’ releases this coming Monday – Aug 31, 2015.

The song from the forthcoming release is a striking effort, the underlying vocals of lead singer Ellem steadily building in intensity beneath the surface and welling up over halfway through as the ambient track slowly unfurls. Its quite a stunning albeit short track, which slowly enraptures the listener up until the end and leaves one absolutely hungry for more. Luckily the full release is only a few short days away and in the meantime for starters you can check out the July release of the excellent video for their first single ‘Still Life’, embedded below.

Dave’s Lounge #315: Happy Accidents

Dave's Lounge - Fri, 08/28/2015 - 12:12

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast 315This week’s show starts off with two happy accidents. The first comes courtesy of Evil Needle. I was originally going to play a catalog track of his from a Soulection compilation — until I stumbled across the song that opens this week’s show. It is absolutely amazing, and you should click on that Bandcamp link below and get yourself a copy.

The second happy accident comes courtesy of Odesza, another group that’s made a few appearances on this show. They were hired to do a remix for Little Dragon, but instead of getting the song to be remixed, they got the vocal stems from a completely different, unreleased song. So they created something beautiful with it.

And that’s just how we open the show this week. I think y’all will enjoy this one…

Foxtails Brigade: Far Away And Long Ago

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 08/28/2015 - 12:00
Foxtails Brigade We first featured a track from Foxtails Brigade‘s last album in November 2012.

Now the Oakland CA band just dropped a new single and music video Far Away And Long Ago. The track, with rich textures of strings and clockwork percussion, explores the disintegration of humanity in an increasingly sterile and more automated world. It’s a free download as part of the new OIM Vol.1 Compilation, so check the link below for that on Bandcamp.

The video, produced by the band and directed by their drummer Dominic Mercurio, follows front-girl Laura Weinbach through a labyrinth of nightmarish rooms in a decaying historic mansion.

Protomartyr: Dope Cloud

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 08/27/2015 - 12:00

ProtomartyrDetroit based band Protomartyr’s new record, “The Agent Intellect”, arrives October 9th worldwide via Hardly Art. This week they started sharing “Dope Cloud,” a new song from the full-length, and apparently as close as the band as ever come to a “radio single.”

The almost-anthem deals in a currency of lost ownership and the futility of creature comforts, as Joe Casey’s lyrics paint mental images of a “saltmine racist gang” and a “pizza king” swollen with riches. It reminds us of the melodic raw power that we initially heard in old favorites like early Jawbreaker, Dag Nasty, Sebadoh and Pavement – definitely one of our favorite tracks released this year.

The Agent Intellect remains available for pre-order, with all initial LP orders on dark green vinyl.

Century Thief: Pillar

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 08/25/2015 - 12:00

Century ThiefPillar is the first excellent single from the upcoming new album by Toronto six piece indie-pop collective CENTURY THIEF, with the release date set in a few short weeks on September 10th.

Being in the studio allowed the group to experiment as a band and brought them closer together, after which they ended up with a 13 song labor of love, ‘Reverie’ that tackles the subject of fighting stagnation. Regarding this subject, the band explained that it is “an honest attempt to understand the boredom and comfort of unhealthy situations, poisonous loves, cruel social structures, doubt and dead end routines”.
