The Roadhouse Podcast - Sun, 01/18/2015 - 02:35
We're at the corner of Maxwell and Halstead this week with an hour given over entirely to Chicago. Focused on the years from the mid-1940s to the early-1970s, we hit what may be a sweet spot for Chicago blues. Little Walter, Junior Wells, Otis Rush, Big Bill Broonzy, Big Walter Horton - legendary names that helped define Chicago as The Home of the Blues. It's another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 516th Roadhouse.

“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.”
Musashi Miyamoto, The Book of Five Rings

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.

The Vultures: The Plague

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 01/16/2015 - 18:42

The VulturesToday’s Dose by London UK based The Vultures is from their upcoming album Three Mothers Part 1 which will be released on February 9 2015 on Ciao Ketchup Recordings. We’ve had a sneak preview, and its worth waiting for. It is a follow up to their double A side Vlad/Cancer (video for Cancer below) and has been described as “this sensual, sinister and proudly singular record is an orchestral post-punk masterclass in noirish songcraft.”

“The Vultures are an evenly split male/female sextet whose members descended on London from five countries spanning three continents. Comprising three-part vocals, cello, violin, viola, bass and drums, the band bonded over a shared belief that rock’n’roll has become stiflingly dull. The Vultures are anything but, eschewing guitars, synths and digitalism in favour of intense in-the-flesh performance. The group’s darkly gorgeous soundscape is sculpted from a broad range of material, encompassing influences from Bjork to Blondie, Serge Gainsbourg to The Pixies, and resulting in innovative and impassioned alternative songs that are set to contaminate the public consciousness in 2015.” [bio]

Best Girl Athlete: Talk

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 01/15/2015 - 13:00

Best Girl AthleteKatie Buchan (aka Best Girl Athlete) is a 15 year old female indie-folk artist from Aberdeen, Scotland. Her father, Charley was the pivotal inspiration to her musical career. Growing up watching her father perform in various bands, Katie had always played a part in offering critical comments for her father when he needed an honest opinion about his songs. Charley began writing for himself just over the last few years, anchoring his style in contemporary Scottish folk, and with Katie’s involvement has begun to veer towards a more pop direction, whilst firmly retaining that folk element.

Talk comes from Carve Every Word, Best Girl Athlete’s debut album, releasing in the United States under the Minty Fresh label. She’s got a forthcoming American tour in support, and a UK release to boot via Fitlike Records on 2nd March 2015.

Chastity Belt: Time to Go Home

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

Chastity BeltWalla Walla rock band Chastity Belt has just released the excellent featured single from ‘Time to Go Home’ the first full length for the label Hardly Art, seeing its release date in a few short months on March 24th.

Chastity Belt consists of four friends – guitarists Julia Shapiro and Lydia Lund, bassist Annie Truscott, and drummer Gretchen Grimm. They met in a tiny college town in Eastern Washington, but their story began in Seattle where they packed into a cramped practice space and emerged with their debut album, No Regerts.

Recorded by José Díaz Rohena, the upcoming release of Time to Go Home sees Seattle four-piece Chastity Belt take the nights out and bad parties of their past to their stretching points, watch the world around them break apart in anticipatory haze, and rebuild it in their own image with stunning clarity before anyone gets hung over.

Crozet: I’m On Fire (Bruce Springsteen Cover)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 01/12/2015 - 13:00

Crozet“Having already established a huge fan base within the synth scene, US-based electro synth pop duo, Crozet is back with a dreamy cover of I’m on Fire by Bruce Springsteen.

“An ode to the ’85 original, the track’s gentle drum beats and smooth vocals work perfectly over a video so effortlessly cool that it looks like it was taken straight from the Boss’s film collection.

“Beginning as a late night musical outlet during the last year of college for John Helmuth, Crozet was formed with the much needed help from long-time friend and musician Sean Lee. Creating an epic wall of sound, built out of huge drums, creamy layered synths, reverb-drenched vocals, and rich guitar tones, Crozet’s musical direction blends emotional John Hughes’ style film scores with an influential synth-pop background.” [press release]

Auditorium: My Grandfather Could Make The World Dance

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 01/11/2015 - 13:00

AuditoriumAuditorium is the musical project of Los Angeles based Spencer Berger, and today’s Dose is his new single.

Spencer says “When I was a kid, I performed onstage from the ages of 9-12 with a variety of large, sweaty, golden-throated dudes like Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo in front of thousands. Nowadays, I perform by myself in my bedroom in front of my old He-Man action figures. It’s not quite as grand, but it’s less sweaty, and a good deal more cozy.”
