Edinburgh Man #192

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 20:35

What a day. Today was the day I tried (and loved using) a standing desk. I know, I’m about two years too late to this fad, but now, as I sit (SIT!) at my normally podcasting console I wish I had a standing desk for that too. That said, I’m a bit shattered. I guess standing up for most of the day probably contributed to that somewhat. In fact, I’m really looking forward to lying down.

On the podcast I talk at moderate length about standing desks, porridge (yep) and poo filled soft play areas. If only I’d stuck by my promise last week not to talk much.

Maybe the Moon: Hammers See Nails

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 13:00

Maybe the MoonBay Area (Northern California) residents Karmen Kimball and Alex Lasner fortuitously met at a party on December 21st, 2012, the day the Mayan calendar had predicted the world was to end. That night, they struck up a conversation about their mutual love for Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music, and realized they had both gone to the same elementary school, years before. They got engaged a few weeks later and, since then, they’ve been in the studio working on a batch of singles they plan to release over the course of 2015.

Hammers See Nails was just released a few short days back in February and is a slow-driving beautiful piece that gets in your head-space and pays off in spades throughout the course of the song, opening up and soaring at just the right moments. Be sure to bookmark at least one of their sites below as you will no doubt be hearing several more of the same high caliber releases in the coming months.

Angharad Drake: Swing

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 13:00

Angharad DrakeBrisbane Australia based singer-songwriter Angharad Drake (ang-ha-rad) combines gentle folk melodies with insightful lyrics, reminiscent of artists like Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell. Originally hailing from the Sunshine Coast, she has built a solid following through regular performances in and around Brisbane and at more regional festivals such as Woodford Folk Festival.

Angharad Drake has been influenced by the musical stylings of artists such as The Tallest Man on Earth and Emma Louise and 2014 marked the release of her third EP ‘Swing’, a collection of songs inspired by her various travels and experiences. The songs reflect on the relationships of friends and the changes experienced throughout life, taking the listener on a melodic journey through the eb and flow of life.

We hope you enjoy this truly incredible piece and take a listen to some of the additional excellent tracks she’s offered up at her Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages below. We’ve also embedded one of her newest videos below, for the song ‘Meddling’.

Sorren Maclean: Rows & Rows of Boxes (acoustic)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 13:00

Sorren MacLeanScottish indie-folk artist, Sorren Maclean has just announced the release of his forthcoming EP, Way Back Home, arriving next month on 9th March 2015 via Middle Of Nowhere Recordings.

Growing up on the Isle of Mull, Sorren began playing in bands from age 11. He recorded his debut album, Island, with Colin MacIntyre of Mull Historical Society, which led on to Idlewild singer Roddy Woomble inviting Sorren to co-write his second solo album, The Impossible Song and Other Songs, and they’ve been working together ever since.

As well as playing and touring with a few local groups, Sorren also produces albums and works and records with a composer for soundtracks to a few different television shows. Sorren’s talent has seen him transcend his own musical projects, having performed on over 20 albums, including upcoming releases from Nashville singer Eliza Lynn and one of Scotlands finest exports, King Creosote whom he is supporting currently on tour.

The Woodlands: Carousel

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 13:00

The WoodlandsIt has been a few months since The Woodlands released their album Gems And Bones (we featured the title track in July 2014), and now Samuel + Hannah have released a new EP called Secret Language.

They say of it: “Secret Language is essentially a love album — dreams of wanting love, exhilaration of finding love, despair of losing love. A secret language instinctively known, wistful in its shimmering, and elusive in its capture.

“Built on a foundation of acoustic warmth, the songs also have a smattering of vintage synths, surprising percussion, guy/girl harmonies, and even a cameo appearance by this beast of a musical time machine on the song Beating Hearts Ablaze.” [see picture below]

Edinburgh Man #191

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 21:15

It’s the first rambling podcast of the year… and I’m not ready for it. Firstly I couldn’t even find the cables that would allow me to broadcast live. And secondly I had at least four, maybe five, abortive attempts at starting the show. We got there in the end though.

I also have a new years resolution – if I don’t have anything interesting to say I’m just going to play some music. How did I get on so far? You decide.

The Hourglass Cats: Too Damn Rude

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 02/05/2015 - 13:00

The Hourglass CatsIt’s nice to hear another good new band bust out some tight ska and reggae-infused rock, especially when it comes from the nearby Arizona scene. The Hourglass Cats (THC) are from Phoenix, AZ and formed there not too long ago in 2012, apparently with members from all over the place: Germany, NY, CA, and of course Arizona. The group has already made quite an impact in that time-frame with their high energy act, sharing the stage with established groups such as Allen Stone, Slightly Stoopid, Dispatch, Thievery Corporation, Passion Pit and more.

They sent over a few tracks and apparently have created their own unique sound, spanning all the way from desert-driven rock to latin inspired ska/reggae and even Hip Hop. We’ve embedded a great video for an earlier release below from their YouTube page which we think you’ll like. We recommend bookmarking the social sites below for the latest news and to hit up Bandcamp or Soundcloud for all the newest sounds being put out.
