Edinburgh Man #195

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 02/26/2015 - 20:36

The second podcast of the week! I’m not totally convinced I’ve got this thirty minute podcast thing sorted out – it feels so weird. It’s also a bit strange because it’s the second podcast using my DIY standing podcasting station – which is basically a collection of boxes stacked randomly. At any point the show may abruptly end because I’ve knocked something over in some sort of podcast jenga.

Anyway, music-wise we kick off with a remix of Wozniak’s Five Star, a new track from Brooklyn’s Arm Candy, and a whole loads more besides.

Ahahahah. I’m already regretting this two podcasts a week lark and I haven’t even started the first one. Hopefully you didn’t listen live, and instead went to see Deerhoof in Glasgow. In a spectacular babysitting fail I’m unable to go and see one of my favourite ever bands. Organisational disaster.

Never mind, there’s a packed musically eclectic podcast for you today including multiple tracks from Olympia’s G.L.O.S.S from the release of the week!

Lorenzo’s Music: I Never Wanted to Say

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 02/24/2015 - 13:00

Lorenzo's MusicIR favorites via Madison Wisconsin – Lorenzo’s Music – are back with a brand new solid track, “I Never Wanted to Say”, recently released to the masses in the past couple of months. We are excited to hear the sax is still quite intact here, making its appearance quite often throughout this infectious song. My first impression came from the underlying guitar groove, reminding me a bit of a SD favorites Pinback at moments, which I can never get enough of.

I think the band best describes the current feel of the music they are currently releasing with the following clip from one of their social sites: “…with each release it’s progressed from the previous sound and continues to grow. Which can be good or bad depending on your own tastes. But it always comes down to the songs. Being exactly who you are and not apologizing. It’s like a trip to a place where nothing else matters but exactly what we feel is right that very minute.

Be sure to check out their video below for the single “Picture It All” if you haven’t yet had the pleasure.

Preview: Liverpool Acoustic Live – Friday 27th February 2015

Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight - Sun, 02/22/2015 - 19:43
The Voice, The Piano and The Guitar play Liverpool Acoustic Live’s 6th birthday this Friday

Double award-winning Liverpool Acoustic Live celebrates its sixth birthday with three top vocal, piano and guitar talents at Mathew Street’s View Two Gallery this coming Friday 27th February 2015.

The Voice
Headlining the show is everyone’s favourite Berlin-born, London-based singer-songwriter Roxanne de Bastion. No stranger to Liverpool (she appeared on Dave Monks’ show last year – listen here), Roxanne, who BBC 6 Music’s Tom Whalley described as having one of the most perfect voices I’ve ever heard, is celebrating the release of her latest EP Seeing You, produced by double BBC Folk Award nominee Ben Walker.


The Piano
Supporting Roxanne will be Jez Wing, Echo & the Bunnymen keyboard player, and member of Cousin Jac. Jez will treating us to a rare solo performance as he shares some of his own songs whilst putting the View Two Gallery’s grand piano to good use in this intimate venue. Last year Jez was featured on BBC Radio Merseyside’s Folkscene (listen here) talking about his musical career and his forthcoming album with Cousin Jac.


The Guitar
Completing the lineup is local musician and guitar tutor Jo Bywater who won the Judges’ Award at the 2014 Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge with her song Riches To Rags. Jo, who has been compared with Janis Joplin and Ani Difranco, recently performed at both the Great Britain Rhythm & Blues Festival and the Great British Rock and Blues Festival.

Roxanne de Bastion was born in Berlin and grew up both in England and Germany until she set out on her own, leaving Berlin for London, equipped only with her guitar and a one-way ticket. The young troubadour tours throughout the UK, mainland Europe and the United States, all on trains and busses. She self-released her debut album The Real Thing, produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes / Regina Spektor) in 2013 and has since then been championed by Tom Robinson on BBC6, John Kennedy on XFM, Ruth Barnes on Amazing Radio, as well as MTV and Radio Eins in Germany. With Seeing You, Roxanne de Bastion continues to forge her own style and a unique approach to a classic musical genre.

Musically, Roxanne’s compositions are routed in the music of the 1960’s, but the tone of voice is very much her own and the stories told are expressed in a way that could only be now. Her lyrics range from introspective journeys in Seeing You and Same Moon, through to observations on instant gratification and repetition (Rerun) and the tearing down of the East Side Gallery in Berlin, Roxanne’s town of birth (Wasteland).

“recalls moments of Martha Wainwright and Joni Mitchell”

“If you ever get a chance to go see her live – definitely do!”
BBC Introducing

One of the most perfect voices I’ve ever heard.”
Tom Whalley, BBC 6 Music

VIDEO PREVIEW – Here’s the video for Seeing You, the title track from Roxanne’s current EP.



Cousin Jac is the project of songwriter Jez Wing. Performing solo, and featuring songs from debut album Believe Me To Remain as well as new material, the Echo & The Bunnymen keyboard player and previous BBC Young Folk Award winner drew from his Cornish folk roots and pop songwriting to produce Believe Me To Remain at the end of 2014. Recorded at Mello Mello Studios in Liverpool, whole grain church organ pop meets progressive bluegrass/folk on this journey of autofiction, ancestry and seafaring on the shores of the Atlantic. Jez has been showcasing the new album with a full band as well as performing solo, recently supporting Paper Aeroplanes on their UK Tour. The album is launched in Liverpool on 1st May 2015.

VIDEO PREVIEW – Here’s Jez Wing performing with his solo project Cousin Jac live a the Kazimier.



Jo Bywater’s latest EP, Chasing Tales has been described as “delicious, laid back folk-tinged Americana” and “unorthodox, uncompromising, simply brilliant”. Over the last few years she has been establishing her place in Blues, Americana, Folk and Roots music with sessions and airplay including BBC6 and Introducing and festivals including The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival and The Great British Rock & Blues Festival. She has been compared to Janis Joplin, Alanis Morrissette and Ani Difranco.

In January 2014 Chasing Tales was voted winner of FATEA Awards Best EP/Mini Album/Single of 2013.

In November 2014 Jo won the Judges’ Award for her song Riches to Rags at the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge.

Jo is currently writing new material, collaborating with various artists and performing in the UK.

VIDEO PREVIEW – Featuring Andy Jones on electric guitar, here’s Chopping Wood from Jo’s Chasing Tales EP.

The mix in the 521st Roadhouse is definitely eclectic. Robin McKelle & The Flytones, Gary Moore, Shaun Murphy, CeDell Davis, and Tangled Eye fill the hour with new releases, most of which have just been released in the past month. I'd say this is definitely the first you've heard of these releases because - yes - it's all about another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.
