Chancius: A Piece of You Wherever I Go

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 11:00

ChanciusA veteran of the New York music scene, Chancius honed his live performance skills playing to crowds in the New York City subway system where he first started selling homemade demos. Fans of his music began to recognize him on the street as the subway musician with the striking vocals and memorable song lyrics. It was at this point that Chancius lent his vocals and song writing skills to the electro-rock outfit Automatic Duo. During his tenure as front man, Chancius toured towns and cities up and down the east coast. His soon to be released LP Bando is an 11 song an album that tells a tale of self-discovery and the meaning of being human in the 21st century. [bio via Planetary Group PR]

Jesca Hoop: Hunting My Dress

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 09/04/2014 - 14:00

Jesca HoopWe recently ran across the wonderful Lost Ark Studio Compilation – Vol. 07 which had the following tantalizing track by Jesca Hoop entitled ‘Hunting My Dress’. The good folk at the San Diego, CA based studio had the following things to say about the session that the currently based Manchester UK artist appeared at:

“We’ve done many compilation sessions over the last year or so, each one a revelation of sorts. But rarely do we have a session that was as simple and surprising as the day Jesca arrived with her guitar, sat down – and left us with such a moving performance of a beautiful song. She headed out just a short time after for a show here in town, and there we were, wondering what just happened, how great it is to be able to work with such unique, talented people. Thank you, Jesca – and enjoy all…”

SnC 425 – Crooned and stirred

Suffolk And Cool - Wed, 09/03/2014 - 17:00
Twin Brother bring their thoughtful brooding music to the show this week.

Twin Brother bring their thoughtful brooding music to the show this week.

Variety again I’m afraid, with tracks from  a bunch of Milwaukee collaborators, a film music studio not quite on the Pont d’Avignon, the legend that is Plastikman and, to start, a multi-instrumentalist obsessive in Portland, Oregon.


Violet Waves Bike Thief Stuck in a Dream- Bike Thief (Portland, OR, USA)

Bike Thief is the brainchild of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Febian Perez. According to, Perez was inspired by the Italian film, The Bicycle Thieves, when he named his band Bike Thief. After moving to Portland in 2012 and auditioning over one hundred musicians, Perez finally found band-mates who could help him realize his precise and complex musical vision.

Perez acknowledged that he knew exactly what he wanted out of the band back when he was the only member and living in Austin, Texas. It was tumultuous at the beginning, and Perez admits that he is a bit obsessive when it comes to his sound and, by extension, the pieces that make it. Perez is adamant, however, that this obsession comes from a place of passion: “I want to make our music as true as possible to the sound I hear in my head.”

Last weekend saw release of their debut record, Stuck in a Dream. Benjamin Violet, known for his work with Of Montreal, The Polyphonic Spree, and Kishi Bashi, directed the animated video for “The Burning Past.” According to Portland’s Deli Magazine, Bike Thief “capture sounds of deterioration and rejuvenation through crooning vocals and stirring string movements.”

Ghosts of Providence – Bike Thief



ALMSwing – ALM Productions (Avignon, France)

A hip hop enthusiast from a young age, ALM offers us a journey through time. Starting with 1930s samples and swing jazz exclusively from old vinyl he builds layers out of those old sounds accompanied by rhythmic old school hip hop, sometimes very “dirty”, but always impressive. Everything is inflated by the very powerful and enriched sounds of vintage synthesizers and subs.

His work seems to be geared towards sound for sync licensing but you can still enjoy it free from Jamendo.

Just do it…every night – ALM Productions


twin brotherWho Is Right Now? - Twin Bother (Milwaukee, WI, USA)

Twin Brother has been kicking about their musical aspirations in the upper Midwest in various formations throughout their collective years in Milwaukee, rooted in the steady musical (and comradic) bond between vocalist/guitarist Sean Raasch and drummer Tyler Nelson.

The energetic pop-rock duo, Jackraasch is where Twin Brother really took off, and their progression into their freshly determined (but still easy-spirited) music is a testament.

It wasn’t until Raasch and Nelson ironed out those early-20s’ wrinkles in their Jackraasch days that they set their form to fly true by joining forces with musical comrade, Lodewijk (“Lodi”) Broekhuizen on bass and violin and set to writing, together, with Raasch at the helm. The three matured and bonded with their new musical form, claiming its name of Twin Brother (holding familial meaning to Raasch), flying right and singing out with a sincere, new sound.

Early 2013 saw Twin Brother reach out, pull in and collaborate even further with several Milwaukee musician friends to set to tape Raasch’s songs filled with nervous conviction. Nelson’s busy but delicate shuffle on the kit and Broekhuizen’s steady bass and strings set the ground solidly for additional strings from Nathaniel Heuer and Amelinda Burich (upright bass and viola, respectively) and lapsteel from Shawn Stephany (all of Milwaukee’s Altos).

That collaborative taping lead to Twin Brother’s fully realized and sparsely beautiful self-titled debut, Swallow The Anchor which The Onion’s AV Club hailed as “[taking] the basic elements of folk and graft[ing] them to the fraying body of alt-rock.” True enough, Twin Brother’s debut held fast to modern folk efforts but was singed through with the defiant energy of the 90s — heartfelt and winsome but with plenty of piss and vinegar, playing off of Raasch’s lyrically acerbic but hopeful viewpoint.

plastikmanExhale – Sonar Live Mix – Plastikman (Windsor / Berlin)

Richie Hawtin is many things – an extraordinary DJ, creator of the ENTER. experience, mastermind behind the M_NUS label, technological innovator, art aficionado – in 2011 he collaborated with British sculptor Anish Kapoor for an installation in Paris – and style icon. Before this, though, and perhaps most famously of all, he was and is Plastikman, an electronic music phenomenon whose followers are legion and fanatic.

Between 1993 and 2003, Plastikman created an astonishing body of work, one that didn’t so much define a time and place as explode them, expanding the dimensions of Detroit techno and redefining the possibilities of electronic dance music. Across six albums (‘Sheet One’, ‘Musik’, ‘Recycled Plastik’, ‘Consumed’, ‘Artifakts (B.C.)’, and ‘Closer)’ and numerous singles such as ‘Spastik’, ‘Plastique’, and ‘Sickness’, Plastikman evolved into one of contemporary electronic music’s most distinctive voices: minimalist, psychedelic, seriously groove-laden, and ever mindful of the transcendent properties of electronica.

On the evening of 6 November 2013, at the invitation of Raf Simons of Dior, a special Plastikman live show composed of entirely new material took place at the Guggenheim Museum, NYC. The album, EX, was released in June, and then days after its release, a second performance took place at the renowned Sónar festival in Barcelona.

Plastikman has now unveiled a live recording of EXhale from the Barcelona performance – the Sónar Live Mix – available as an MP3 / AIFF to download for free.

EX Plastikman’s first album release since 2003’s Closer, and is out now on vinyl, CD, digital and limited edition SubPac bundle. For the limited edition, Plastikman teamed up with SubPac to create a Limited Edition Premium Bundle: the album is presented on vinyl, with a signed certificate of authenticity and a custom Plastikman edition of the SubPac S1.

Here’s the video of the Barcelona performance.




Early Worm: Water Colors

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 09/02/2014 - 14:00

Early WormWe again find ourselves on the Twitter search page, this time imagining a quarter drop and mechanical crane grabbing this beautiful EP and prized track out of the sea of million tweets. Well, we like to think it was something akin to that.

Early Worm is a three-piece indie rock band out of St. Louis Missouri whose hometown is actually in Collinsville, Illinois. The “Early Worm EP”, where you can find this track, was released in May of 2013 and the band has also apparently just released a name-your-price quality full length titled ‘Truck’ this past month over at BandCamp.

You can also get a physical CD over there that comes in a full color digipack with art work by Ariel Biggerstaff. The Early Worm EP is also at Bandcamp, fifteen great tracks to download between the two releases!

Edinburgh Man #176

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Mon, 09/01/2014 - 20:17

What’s with the milk bottles I hear you cry. I’ve been making milk. From nuts! It’s crazy, I know. I never knew such a thing was even possible, and now I’m addicted to it. I guess it’s the same part of me that likes making beer or wine or bread or any number of things that are easier and cheaper to get from a shop. Cashew is my current favourite. That and almond. Don’t try sunflower though. That’s bogging.

Anyway, on today’s show I talk politics. Apologies. If you read my blog post last week about how I’m voting ‘yes’ in the upcoming Scottish independence referendum you probably thought this was coming. If the blog post was well thought out, then this is the opposite. It’s rambling nonsense. Please don’t base your vote on anything that I say – research this yourself. If you are in Scotland then it’s probably the single most important vote you’ll ever cast – make sure you are absolutely right in your mind not just about the way you are voting, but that you are doing so for the right reasons. Not out of fear for the alternative, but out of hope for the way forward.

Kye Alfred Hillig: We Buried a Cop

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 08/31/2014 - 14:00

Kye Alfred HilligKye Alfred Hillig’s new album ‘The Buddist’ has just released digitally earlier in the month, with a CD being issued on 9/9. For those who like to lovingly admire a larger scale version of the artwork and enjoy a more visceral experience, he is currently running a Payola funding campaign for a vinyl copy that has a little over a week left to run.

The new record was produced by Hillig alongside Daniel G. Harmann and is a collection of what Hillig describes as his most honest and raw material to date. Apparently a preview of the material at The Dutch Embassy earlier in July left some audience members in tears and the feedback was apparently outstanding.

We love his songs as they all have such a strong intelligent storytelling presence that is hard to find, joining such company as Tom Brosseau, Drew Danburry, Eddie Vedder and a handful of others we think have the rare gift.
