Silhouette Cities: Enough

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 07/08/2015 - 12:00
Silhouette Cities Washington DC based Silhouette Cities will be releasing their new album “No Worse for the Wear” on August 4th. They were kind enough to send it to us pre-release, we had a listen, and selected Enough as today’s Dose. The rest of the album is great too, worth waiting a few weeks to get the album. In the mean time head to the SoundCloud link below to stream three tracks from it.

We first featured Silhouette Cities back in March last year, with the track “See it from your side” from their EP “Objects In Motion”.

The Jaguar Club: Stringer

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 07/07/2015 - 12:00

The Jaguar ClubNew York/Massachusetts band THE JAGUAR CLUB have recently issued a new EP, Close, which was inspired by a return to the idea of a band being “a band.” Someone writes a song and then the group completely re-moulds it fighting to fit their best ideas in. Hoping to catch the magic of the rehearsal room, the new EP came together over a week in a DUMBO Brooklyn studio under the guidance of Nick Stumpf (French Kicks, Caveman, etc).

William Popadic (vocals & guitar) explained: “Stringer is a song that, for me, really represents the whole reason we reunited the band. It started as a little chirpy all synth demo I made by myself, but once the full band got their hands on it the song became something else entirely.”

They will be spending the remainder of 2015 touring, including winter dates in the UK and developing material on the road for their next release, a full length album.

Twin Within: Bernie

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 07/05/2015 - 12:00

Twin WithinTwin Within consists of Steve McKay and Alex Samaras out of Hamilton, Ontario (CAN). Together their voices have a natural affinity beyond technical ability, and recall classic duos like Righteous Brothers, Walker Brothers, or Simon & Garfunkel.

Bernie comes from a place of discovery, with Steve McKay relaying, “Writing melodies and coming up with arrangements comes really easy to me, but writing lyrics is tough. When we were writing songs for this record, I was listening to a lot of Elton John and thinking about that whole Bernie Taupin lyricist-partner thing. It’s like it would be so much easier if somebody else would write the lyrics for me and I could just hammer out the hooks”. Describing the writing process, he continues, “We were going for a bit of a James Taylor vibe with the arrangement – it’s just an acoustic guitar, tic-tac bass, piano and floor tom. We specifically recorded this with a classical music engineer, Kirk Starkey, with the hope that he might pull a little more out of the acoustic instruments and the Church where we recorded. I think he did a pretty good job”.

Their debut record “Horizontal Lines” is out July 10th on Hidden Pony Records.
