Martinibomb are a duo from Portland, Oregon who have been realeasing some very creative songs for at least the last five or more years, as we recall always being inspired by their sampling while listening to a variety of shows and digging through the Internet stacks. The page at the FMA claims Martinibomb enjoy cobbling odd songs together from vinyl records, tin cans, sticks and chewing gum, as well as enjoying reading books, collecting records, brewing sake, and watching obscure films.
Check out the links below and be amazed as their efforts are always very inspired. For example check out the newest effort embedded below, a short sample of the video for “Death Ray Samba” their new release on vinyl. More info on this can also be found via their Facebook page.Dizzy ke Peche HypeMachine
Sleeper, Secret Friend’s second self-produced album set to release August 14th, melds psychedelic ambiance and electronica with soft layers of acoustic pop melodies. Blue Sky inspires a dream like state of mind further illustrated throughout Secret Friend’s upcoming album.
The podcast returns after a short vacation to New York City! Today’s rambling tales cover such subject matter as lactose intolerant sickness and the playgrounds of NYC.
Also, many apologies if you attempted to listen to this show live. Dodgy internet issues plagued the show, and the web connection seemed to give out halfway through. Hopefully the recording will be fine. I must sort this out before attempting another live show.
Music-wise, it’s definitely got a bit of a Brooklyn vibe, with tracks from Las Lanas, The Planes, Toby Goodshank and more.

LA musician Daniel Finfer’s inspiration for blending accelerating technologies with music may sound familiar to many of you. Five years ago, he was struck by how few pop songs really had a meaningful message, and at the same time he was reading Ray Kurzweil’s The Singularity is Near.
Finfer got the idea for creating songs that explored the themes of the Singularity under the guise of pop music. While his lyrics may sound like they are a stereotypical exploration of love, romance, and youthful bravado, they are actually “a conversation between my future and present selves, I’m sort of talking back and forth through time.”You in the Future HypeMachine

BJ Bonin and Mike McCloskey became Demolition Means Progress in late 2011, having toured together since 2000 (as The Underthings). Grant Martin joined in 2013 to complete the lineup, and they have an ongoing collaboration with Minneapolis cellist Amy Waller.Their first EP “Destroy as Directed” features song topics ranging from politics to silly road trips to relationships, each with a different musical theme (punk, americana, rock). “Destroy as Directed” has been described as REM meets the Pixies, or Billy Bragg meets Sugar. Think Teenage Fanclub with a cellist, or Murder By Death with shoegaze pedals, the EP has garnered airplay on independent radio stations around the country.
Demolition Means Progress is currently recording their sophomore effort “Lovesongs for Saboteurs.” The LP features songs about work, debt, despair, and love with strong melodies and harmony,
jangly guitar, bass chords, and some cello over layers of reverb that comes close to shoegaze without crossing that event horizon. [bio]

Opa! unites musicians from different parts of the huge area of the former USSR, who came together in Saint-Petersburg, the multicultural capital of Russia. This band is a product of self-expression via experienced musicians who grew up on a fertile ground of traditional weddings of the 90s, town celebrations, and world music festivals around the world.
The band’s music expresses freedom and euphoria of post-soviet spirit and ancient enigma of Russian soul. Open-hearted shows, the multilingual lyrics of “Opa!” and their willingness to give it all to the audience make this wild positive folk remarkable and understandable for everyone around the world.Russian State Museum’s Lottery HypeMachine

In this podcast, you’ll hear full live sets and interviews from each of the bands, presented by the amazing Claire Rozario.More about the artists KNITES
Combining 3 piece rock elements with electronic/pop influences creates KNITES unique sound. Their distinctive songwriting have attracted attention from Sony ATV and they’ve been recording in EMI Studios, as well as ratcheting up airplay from BBC Introducing and KRCW. They’re catching the attention of blogs too – “Set Me Right” was a recent track of the day on Killing Moon.
“Its going to be exciting watching these guys grow this year” – Don’t blog me, blog you
“They are definatly going to be creating a buzz over the coming months” – Rockandroll creationsPALUMBO AND THE FUNK
Big original sound, based on the old school. Palumbo provides the rock, the band provide the funk! They incorporate Sgt. Pepper and James Brown-esque horn lines, funky rhythms, big riffs, and 3 part vocal harmonies to build their big sound.
Winner of the Jazz/Funk/Fusion EP section at the 13th Independent Music Awards, Palumbo and the Funk have performed in Vienna, Paris and Geneva and numerous festivals in Australia.
Folk pop singer-songwriter, loop station addict and odd socks enthusiast. His work has received critical acclaim from the likes of Ultimate Guitar. He conquers the intricate layering of loops on a live stage that would put many to shame. He’s a regular performer at Discovery events, Liverpool Sound City and Kendall Calling. His new EP is produced by Ciaron Bell.
“A beautiful song and a wonderful melody.” – Sir Paul McCartney
“A great voice and a great understanding for melody.” – Billy Ocean
“His ability to command the room was nothing short of remarkable…” – Bido Lito Magazine
A singer/songwriter playing a new genre of Americana, with influences from Neil young, Bob Dylan and Ryan Adams. Self-released debut album “Well Tread Roads” has received critical acclaim as an honest and heartwarming collection of songs.
“This album is quite simply stunning with thoughtful intelligent lyrics, caressing melodies and, despite some of the subject matter, not an ounce of maudlin to be seen… One of 2014’s best albums.” – AMERICANA UK
“Well Tread Roads” warms you up, holds you close and makes you feel richer for having encountered it. Each of the 10 songs cradled in the lyrics and melodies so thoughtfully written and steadfastly felt. This album haunts you with the echoes and essence of Neil Young & David Gray whilst inspiring your heart to surrender all its questions and find its own way home.” – FRESH INDEPENDENCE
Since her first appearance at Discovery 2 when she was just 16, Cara Mitchell has gone from strength to strength, completing two full UK headline tours as well as countless support slots with the likes of Simone Felice, Gemma Hayes, Little Comets, Rachel Sermanni and Fatherson . Now 19, Cara has just released Afraid Of The Dark – her second EP to much critical acclaim including being named in the Top 15 EPs of 2014 by Rave Child.
“Check her voice. There’s something a little bit Bjorky about that. That was not like one of those people that go on TV talent shows and sound like everyone else. She has a totally unique voice and thats the kind of thing we like to promote on BBC Introducing.” – Ally McCrae – BBC Introducing – BBC Radio One
“With such soft, lush tones to her voice, Cara could probably sing the phonebook and have lots of success. It is an added bonus that she is such an accomplished songwriter.” – For Folks Sake

Poppy Brothers just released their new album Dreams of the Newly Awake and today’s Dose Pillow Talk is from it.
“Poppy Brothers is an American electropop duo consisting of vocalist James Tillman and producer Matthew Taylor. In 2012 the real life brothers released three radically different songs online which ranged from smooth R&B to thick alternative rock. However, it was the slick electropop gem One that caught fire and propelled the brothers to record a full-length album: 2013’s Mark of the Beat. Shortly after the release, the pop duo returned with the even more ambitious collection End of the Rainbow before beginning work on their sophomore LP Sour Fruit, which saw the brothers sharpening their pop credentials on tracks like Dance Floor Forever and Perfect. Less than a year later, the brothers are back again with their fourth release in three years, 2015’s adventurous Dreams of the Newly Awake.” [bio]
