One Finger Riot“It’s not a concept album or anything,” Los Angeles-based musician and painter Faris McReynolds says of The Sea, his latest album as the one-man band, One Finger Riot. “But there’s definitely a Side One and a Side Two, because the first half is angst, and the second half is acceptance,” he explains of the record, arriving July 22nd.

Roadhouse 487

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 06/28/2014 - 22:13
We turn this week to the harp - not the stringed instrument of the angels but the Mississippi Saxophone - the blues harp. There’s a killer harp track in nearly every set of this edtion, featuring Little Mike & The Tornadoes, Seth Walker, Rick Estrin & the Nightcats, Leon Russell, and Bob Corritore. For blues fans it’s a heavenly hour. It’s definitely another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard, the 487th Roadhouse.

Moving Castles: I’m A Fever

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 06/27/2014 - 11:00

Moving CastlesMoving Castles from Austin TX recentlyly released I’m A Fever, the first track from their full-length follow-up to their 2011 EP Twin Daggers.

They say on their web site: “Our new album is already recorded and is currently being mixed by our good friend John from New York. We spent the first half of 2014 bouncing between our houses in Austin and some friend’s houses in East Texas tracking the album with the help of Trevor Tull, who also did production and engineering on Twin Daggers. We were listening to Quadrophenia by The Who, London Calling by The Clash, Diamond Dogs by David Bowie and the newest Midlake album while making our record. It is big, loud and heartfelt. We are very proud of it and we will have plenty of details to share soon.”

Edinburgh Man #171

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 06/26/2014 - 18:18

The second of two podcasts recorded in Toronto, featuring an all Torontonian playlist, and more rambling chat from the palatial waterfront Airbnb condo that is the Edinburgh Man family home for the last two weeks.

Edinburgh Man Junior is improving, and we even managed to do touristy things for the last few days. We went up the CN Tower and Edinburgh Man Junior was fascinated by the glass floor. Something that most of the adult visitors seemed to be a bit freaked out about. Or maybe they were just freaked about by his Chickenpox scabs. Don’t worry – we did get the okay from a Doctor that he was no longer contagious.
