Strange & Primitive: That Big City Glow

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 06/14/2015 - 12:00
Strange & Primitive “[Toronto based] Strange & Primitive announces the release of their post-punk revival album, Strange & Primitive, due out August 21st. Structurally dynamic and inspired by the cinema, the duo takes the listener on a visual journey with a blend of earthy and synthetic tones.

“True to their namesake, Strange & Primitive incorporates primitive tribal beats to evoke abstract emotions. Graham Fish and Jeff Musgrave are inspired by artists whose approach is to create new landscapes within their music. Fish says, “We want people listening to our music to feel transported, the way they might while watching a great film.”

“The first single off their album “That Big City Glow,” eludes atmospheric verses with a celebrating, driving chorus, while exposing the underbelly and the inability to see the shadows for the lights.” [GLG press release]

Roadhouse 537

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 06/13/2015 - 20:35

A rare intermittent Internet issue has left me tethered to my iPhone and pushed a new edition of The Roadhouse back to next week. Enjoy what I hope will be the last Roadhouse Rewind before the holidays - the Chicago-centric Roadhouse 312.

There's a good variety of blues in the 312th Roadhouse, with a stronger-than-usual emphasis on Chicago blues. The hour features Luther Allison, Big Bill Morganfield, Smokey Wilson, Todd Wolfe Band, and a great live track to remember Gary Moore. From Chicago to New Jersey to Georgia to Ireland, it's a well-rounded hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

I Am the Albatross: Port City

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 06/13/2015 - 12:00

I Am the Albatross‘Port City’ is an ode to the part of I-10 which runs between Texas and Louisiana and passes through the many industrial port cities that lie between Houston and New Orleans,” says vocalist and guitarist Jesse Berkowitz of Austin-based trio I Am The Albatross.

The band’s debut album “Lonesome Son” (arriving August 7th via Rail Rider), is a natural, but substantial progression from the its early-2014 EP, which Ovrld called “Haunting and alien, full of menace and fire.”

“It’s a rock record for sure,” Berkowitz says matter-of-factly of the new group of tunes that mightily show off the influence of Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Kyuss, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, and Clutch. Berkowitz’s heavy, blistering guitar work is complemented by the no-nonsense contributions of Giuseppe Ponti on bass and vocals, and Marc Henry on drums.

Berkowitz continues to discuss “Port City,” saying, “The song is about that time spent alone, driving. On long drives it’s easy to get lost in thought and caught in a flood of memories.”

Berkowitz goes on to explain that “Lonesome Son” is “a record about things ending. It’s about searching, aging, and all the irreparable change that comes with the passage of time. It’s very much inspired by life in Austin.”

A House for Lions: Peace and War

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 06/11/2015 - 12:00

A House for LionsDaniel Norman, singer/songwriter of Los Angeles band, A House for Lions, was a music lover who never intended to become a musician. But while hitchhiking through Germany, a melody and a few words popped into his head and never left: “we’ll write a book worth reading!” – the first line of what would become the first song Daniel ever wrote and A House for Lions’ statement of purpose, “Let Back”. In that moment, he realized it might be possible to get off of the fence and create a project of his own; at least, it would be fun to try. Daniel had played guitar since he was a kid, but had no experience playing in a band. So he’d have to get better, (“we’ll pass the test, no cheating!”) but he’d also need to seek out kindred spirits to flesh-out the sound of his bare bones experiments.

The band’s debut full-length album made with Grammy Award-winning producer Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Elliott Smith, Fiona Apple, Warpaint) will be released 06.24.14 on Randm Records, home to the cult status Lost Ark Studio. They recently completed an innovative DIY crowdfunding campaign to fund the making of the album.

We’ve also embedded a great live 2013 performance of theirs below for the track Nightfalls, live at The Echoplex with a String Section.

Track Review: Everyone’s Problem, No One’s Problem by Chalk

Is This Thing On Podcast - Wed, 06/10/2015 - 09:27

Another great track review from Te Hao Boon. This time it is for Chalk – Everybody’s Problem, No One’s Problem  Is This Thing On Podcast PURPLE

Ah… Good ol’ capitalism. Something so ingrained in everyone’s psyche. In 2005, an economist/psychologist duo from Yale managed to teach seven capuchin monkeys how to use money. The reason they choose capuchin monkeys is simple: They are selfish creatures. They would rather eat more than they can, puke, and eat the remaining food than give it to another monkey that might be starving.

What do you guys think the monkeys would use the money for? Food, shelter, friendship? Nope, they just use the money for sex. And why would the female monkey need money anyway, you might ask? Well, to buy themselves some grapes, of course!

With materialism taking centrestage in urban society, there are now programs created to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Programs that force you to drop everything you have: Your work, your smartphone, your laptop, even your car and just enjoy nature for a week or two (for the low price of $199.95!).

How many people can actually drop all that we have a go at a non-materialistic life? I know I can’t, I wouldn’t be able here sitting on my bum typing this review on my desktop otherwise. I am a “gutless shit” as mentioned in the song.

Brighton singer-songwriter Chalk‘s Everyone’s Problem, No One’s Problem sounds like a lovechild of Modest Mouse and The Paper Chase: Lo-fi grungy sounds with a tinge of hollowness throughout the song. The protagonist calls himself a “man of money” and he is nothing else really. He doesn’t have any hopes and dreams of his own; he just buys them from others with the money he has.

The protagonist knows he is working under the system but he is not questioning if the system could be changed since he was brought up in it. In fact, he has even started to think intangible things like dreams and hopes can be bought with paper money.

Lets all not be so materialistic for once. After all, everyone is going 6 feet under at the end of the day. Money only means so much.

Urvanovic: Warrens

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 06/09/2015 - 12:00

UrvanovicEdinburgh seven-piece band Urvanovic [‘er-van-o-vitch’] have recently announced the arrival of their debut album Amateurs, which drops via Survivalist on 15th June 2015. On Amateurs, Urvanovic have created a spectacular amalgamation of live and programable instrumentation that creates an overwhelmingly powerful sound.

Originally created as a studio experiment in Edinburgh, Urvanovic formed in 2012 as a byproduct of songwriter Tom Irvine’s (vocals, keys, guitar) composition projects at university. He then created a musical collective with the aforementioned Seonaid Stevenson (vocals, trumpet) as well as Niall Sinclair (laptop & keyboard, noises), David Hill (drums, percussion), Emma Donald (violin), Bethany Coyle (violin), Rachel Wilson (cello), David Norris (violin), Amanda Currie (violin), Tim Cais (cello) and Graham Coe (cello) to create the intense and captivating sound you hear on this album.
