New year? Check. New kit for recording on? Check. New tunes? Check. Same old blethering? Hell, yeah! It’s true – I’m finally back with a
laptop (thanks, Glen!) and a new external soundcard to create the new TFL recording studio. As I found during the recording though, I need to rearrange my studio workspace to avoid having to lean in to reach the mic & knackering my back… I also have to apologise to The Persian Leaps, as my rustiness meant that during the recording I failed to tell you what their songs were called. All that aside, it’s bloody good to be back!

Seawitches – Stars

Thank you for continuing to support the independent artists in 2015 by listening, feeding back and buying their music.
The Black Lamps recently released their debut album through Of National Importance Records. Today’s Dose is from the album.
“The Black Lamps are an alternative post-rock and ambient guitar band from Barnsley, South Yorkshire with a deep history. Members Greg Firth (bass), Dean Ormston (drums), Lyndon Scarfe (guitars and keyboards) and Liam Stewart (vocals and guitars) have played their part in many a celebrated band throughout the previous three decades” [bio]

After a new track from me it’s my tip for 2015, powerful and evocative Little Brother Eli – Who Do You?, picking up where Eddie and the Hotrods left off and bringing it right up to date The Silver Bayonets – Schemes. If Peter Gabriel had stayed with Genesis and listened to a few Jacques Brel records he would have come up with something like the enigmatic Marvin B Naylor‘s new single Brief Encounter. My last two tracks Wolfe Sunday - Botany Bay (if Axle Rose had picked up an acoustic guitar and wrote folky punk songs) and ending with my number one and number 2 French punk band H.O.Z. and one of my favourite tracks from their album Ain’t Got No Woman. What a show!

Edinburgh UK (via Oklahoma, US) indie artist Adam Howard, otherwise known as THE DUKE OF NORFOLK, released his debut album “Birds… Fly South!” this past February on the Mint 400 label, and while upcoming season is still a few months out, we’re happy to feature the excellent first single from the album ‘First Day of Spring’ here on the Dose.
We also hope your enjoy the corresponding new video which we’ve embedded further below. The track itself is described as standing in slight opposition to Ode to Winter, the 4th track on “Birds…”, and is about the relief that Spring brings. Adam wrote it on the first warm day after a hard winter they had a few years previous.

The last few years has seen Karl support Chase & Status, Example, Wiley, Reverend & The Makers, Skepta, RDGLDGRN & Alabama 3 on tour. Air time on numerous BBC Introducing shows, including BBC 6 Music.
Headline gigs at O2 Academy’s and a sell-out EP launch at Camden Barfly and squeezing in the odd gig in France. Karl even found time to gain support from the ‘Dont Flop’ Rap battle league after taking part in what might be the worlds first ever “guitar rap battle”.
Summers were spent in festival mode spreading the rock/rap/ska vibe as far as Latvia! Sharing stages with the likes of The Subways, Tinchy Stryder and Zane Lowe.THE BULLETPROOF BOMB
Their raucous edgy guitar driven sound has gained unprecedented attention including support by Zane Lowe on Radio 1, Gary Crowley BBC London, a headline slot on BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival. They have also played Leeds and Rob Da Banks stage at Bestival. Their debut EP was produced by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Yuck and The Palma Violets).
“Definitely a band that music appreciators from around the rocking globe should most certainly listen and watch closely for. Ace band.” -Forkster RocksKOLO
Kolo are a three piece pop rock band based in London. Originally from Devon; Jon, Steve and Dan’s epic pop rock anthems have been charming audiences up and down the UK since 2006.
Their much anticipated debut album was produced in Nashville by Chris Henderson from 3 Doors Down .’Castro’, the first track off the album, ‘Who Wants to Rule the World?’ Comes out on January 19th 2015.
“I produced this album and I am still listening to it… every day.” -Chris Henderson, 3 Doors Down.
“Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music.” -Vic Morgan, BBCAMY ODELL
From the depths of East London a dark soulful storm is brewing in the form of alternative songstress Amy Odell. The gritty sound that emanates from her pipes has an element to it that no other brother can touch. Amy contributed a vocal guest appearance on legendary Irish musician Gavin Friday’s album ‘Catholic’ after Gavin chose her personally to feature on the song ‘Land On The Moon’. Don’t be fooled by the lack of noise this siren is making. It has been a long time coming, and bubbling under the ground ready for the explosion of 2015CHRIS PRESTON
Chris is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from the Southwest of England primarily influenced by acts such as City and Colour, Daughter and Local Natives. Debut songs ‘Hold on’ and ‘Bridges’ were viewed over a thousand times each in less than 24 hours after being uploaded and and were each reposted.
Mark Di Giovanni, otherwise known as PLASTIC HANDGUN, is an independent musician and filmmaker based in Toronto, Canada who just released his first full album on January 11th that was composed entirely of experimental indie rock songs. “Involuntary Memories” was recorded over a 4 month period at the very end of this past year and touches on sub-genres like psych rock, post-rock and dream pop. He cited a few major influences in this endeavour, namely Animal Collective, Sunset Rubdown and Atlas Sound – as well as others.
The featured track “Introverts” takes the listener on an interesting ride, the seemingly symbiotic and dynamic musical layers leading toward the final moments as the surreal dreamlike world solidifies taking the song to wide-eyed heights into its final notes. Introverts is a stunning single, and we recommend partaking in the entire album, which can be downloaded through the band’s social sites below.

After something of a break for the Christmas holidays I’m pleased to say Rathole Radio is back! I finally got the show back on the road as they say and here’s another hour of eclectic tunes and waffle. I was experimenting with a new studio set up and I had a weird echo all the time in my headphones when I spoke, you will hear me mention it as the show goes along but thankfully it’s not on the recording. I hope you enjoy the show

What’s this? Oh, y’know, just a viral video sensation hanging out with a podcaster and his future wife. (And guess which one of them forgot to turn the flash on?)
I had the opportunity to see Kawehi perform live in Raleigh last Saturday. The energy she puts into her performance is just tons of fun to watch. Also, her Ableton Live skills make me feel like a caveman rubbing two sticks together while she’s cooking with gas. I’ve got a long way to go.
I’ve captured some video from her Raleigh show here:
Check out her tour dates on her web site, and when you meet her, tell her Dave sent you.
Meanwhile, if you’re waiting for the next episode of Dave’s Lounge…
- Show #301 is in the can! You can hear it first on BeatLounge Radio on Sunday, January 25, at 6:00 PM ET / 2300 UTC.
- The episode will hit the podcast feed on January 30, though it might get to the Dave’s Lounge App a bit sooner.
- From here on out, all show notes will include timestamps, so you can see when a particular song was played.
- This is the first episode in which I announce what each song is after it’s played, rather than before. Do let me know how you like that format.
- There is new music from Natalie Walker in this episode. Yes. I’m rather stoked.
One more thing: Dave’s Lounge is no longer accepting Bitcoin donations, but will continue to encourage the use of Dwolla where I can. (I think I received a grand total of 0.02 BTC from that experiment, so no big loss.)
Daniel G. Harmann stopped by for an interview and to share his upcoming album, White Mountains. He also provides tips on how to travel the country hugging cats. Crucial info, so don’t miss it. This week’s show also includes quite a bit of new music from the submission box, as well as one from our current EP release, The One Takes, which is still available for you to purchase from our Bandcamp page.
