Baby Baby: Can’t Spell Conch Without the “CH”

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 14:00

Baby BabyFrom “Big Boy Baller Club,” released 4/1/2014

Channeling the Beastie Boy’s silly irreverence and party-rockin’ spirit, Atlanta Georgia’s BABY BABY blend pop/punk songwriting with a hip-hop swagger and an emphasis on the live experience, which is something akin to the party scene in a teen movie, only everyone there can drink, and the party’s actually fun.

Baby Baby convened in the summer of 2009, when singer/guitarist Fontez Brooks and drummer Grant Wallace shook off the sleepiness of the suburbs and set out to bring a new element to the Atlanta scene. Packed with unfriendly, broody artists, hostile hardcore kids and the strip-club rap scene on the creepy fringes, The A simply needed some fun rock. And that’s what Baby Baby — which has since expanded to include percussionist Colin Boddy, bassist Kyle Dobbs and Ryan Burruss on keys — delivers on their sophomore album, Big Boy Baller Club, the follow-up to 2011′s Money, released on the Gospel of Rhythm Recordings.

Baby Baby are described as a big, inclusive tent. There’s room under it for friends, foes, Nickleback fans, even haters; we all need someone to keep us in check, don’t we? All they ask is that you come ready to dance and make some new friends on the floor. They’ll take care of the rest.

Gig Preview: Strangefruit, The Undivided, Stella and the Shakes and Ethan Ash at the Discovery 2 & IMC Easter Extravaganza

The Justin Wayne Show - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 15:49

Discovery 2 has again teamed up with IMC (International Music Community) to present some of the UK’s hottest emerging bands and singers at the AAA in Kensington on Thursday, April 17thStrangefruit bring their haunting cinematic anthems, blistering Welsh rock band The Undivided have just released their new album, This New Day, the cheeky and talented starlet-fronted Stella and the Shakes return with a new band name and singer/songwriter Ethan Ash has been garnering mainstream attention with his mesmeric and intimate vocal-style. You’ll also hear DJs TwentyOne & AKW playing till late.

The Skinny The Bands STRANGEFRUIT (London)

Featuring the collective talents of the charismatic Jenny Maxwell [vocals/piano], the Perrett brothers (Jamie Perrett [guitar/vocals] and Peter Perrett Jnr [bass]) and Jake Woodward [drums], Strangefruit has garnered a burgeoning reputation as a captivating live band. Their original and powerful musicianship has been mesmerising audiences at UK clubs and festivals including Secret Garden Party, Solfest, Blissfields and The Wilderness Festival. They’ve also already played with the likes of Florence and The Machine and Dizzee Rascal.

“Beautiful indie rock with a darker edge…File this one under psyche/folk/ambient and oh so great.” – Tom Haugen – Inforty

“Stunning debut brimming with cinematic, diverse and haunting tracks that are akin to a mini movie soundtrack.” –


The Undivided have been making waves across the South Wales music scene and beyond with their anthemic brand of indie rock. Hailing from the South Wales valleys, they have gained a reputation as a blistering live act, delivering passionate performances that have swelled the ranks of their growing and dedicated fanbase. The band have supported Ash and The Xcerts and have had songs from their new LP, “This New Day” played on Radio 1. Top band!

“The Undivided have a knack for writing anthemic songs as big as the mountains that overshadow their hometown of Abergavenny” – Kerrang Magazine

“Wingman guitarist Bray does a fine line in stadium trashing intros, and numbers like ‘Open Your Eyes’ and ‘Panic’ are immediately mesmerising. Singer Joe comes alive on these numbers too, as if he knows Bray’s scorching intros, a collision of U2, early Simple Minds, and SLF, are something to follow and indeed match.” – AP Childs – Artrocker.TV


Stella and the Shakes draw on blues, jazz, soul, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll influences to create a unique and eclectic concoction of sonic brilliance. The band are the current “Mayor’s GIGS Big Busk” champions. Over the past year, they have been working with composer/producer Guy Jackson on their sophomore EP, “Shake It Up”. With an upbeat rock ‘n’ roll track penned in as the leading single, their bright and audacious musical journey continues at a pace.

“We expect big things for this young starlet!” – Becca Wren – Project Manager, SBTV

“Stella instantly reminded me of Baby from Dirty Dancing – delicate, smooth, cheeky and talented. Her initially shy stage presence completely vanishes when she starts to sing and her live show is gracious, flawless and entertaining.” – Sian Anderson – SighTracked

ETHAN ASH (Cambridge)

Singer songwriter Ethan Ash began studying music and playing guitar when he was 6 years old and played his first solo show at the tender age of 12. Fast forward in time and Ethan has gone on to support a number of high-profile artists including Ed Sheeran, Passenger, Foy Vance and Seth Lakeman. Ethan has also played at a number of prestigious UK festivals including Bestival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Wilderness, Latitude and The Secret Garden Party.

“Great artist, great EP, great track… just great” – Tom Simkins – BBC Introducing

“More than anything else it’s the range Ash has that proves why it’s only a matter of time until he smashes through his glass ceiling into mainstream attention.” – 7 Bit Arcade

The She’s: My Secret to Keep

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 11:00

The She'sTHE SHE’S just released their first new single in over 3 years called My Secret to Keep. It’s the first track off of their upcoming EP Dreamers.

“The She’s are an all girl soft-garage-rock band from San Francisco, Ca. All four members met in high-school, and at age 15 they began practicing together in their parents’ basements.

Now with high school behind them, the She’s plan to tour the US this summer and fall.” [bio]

King of Prussia: Your Work is Magic

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 04/13/2014 - 14:00

King of PrussiaIn 2011, King of Prussia songwriter, singer and guitarist Brandon Hanick returned from Barcelona to American shores a new man, having written the 20 songs that would become King of Prussia’s first double album, Zonian Girls…And The Echoes That Surround Us All.

A “concept album” wasn’t the goal at the start. It just so happened that half of the songs represent the lighter side of the human psyche (love, joy, and ‘whitewashed afternoons’), while the other half represent, well…the other half (the loss of love, woe, and ‘the dark side of town’). Each ‘light’ song on Zonian Girls has a darker counterpart on The Echoes that Surround Us All, and the two ‘cousin’ songs are bound together by related melodies, musical arrangements, lyrical themes or a combination thereof.

What Moon Things: The Astronaut

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 04/12/2014 - 14:00

What Moon ThingsDrawing inspiration from a range of influences including the Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Modest Mouse, and the Cure, NY-based – What Moon Things blends distorted guitar hooks, somber synthesizers, and the rubbed-raw vocals of Jake Harms and John Morisi to jolt listeners wide awake with stinging dreamo (shoegazey, dreamy, and a little bit emo…) sound.

The band began recording together in the early summer of 2013, and within a few frenetic months had completed their eponymous debut LP. What Moon Things is managed by Left Brain Artist Management (founded by Deerhunter and Drive-by Truckers producer David Barbe, also member of Sugar) in Athens, GA. The band is set for a June 3rd issue on 12” vinyl and CD as the inaugural release on the Athens label Hot Grits Records.

Edinburgh Man #162

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 19:58

Another podcast, another series of technical cock-ups. This week on the podcast I thought I’d attempt to do a live show, however the new Internet at Edinburgh Man towers is of a lower quality than it used to be, so it was a non-advertised live show. I’m not even sure if it worked for the full 45 minutes, or if anyone listened this week. I really should figure out how I can find out that information. Anyway, no-one talked to me on the old twitter, which is probably just as well.

Music-wise it’s a great eclectic mix this time. Garage-Rock from Barcelona in the form of a new single from The Saurs on Mama Vynila Records, there’s the welcome return of chiptune to the podcast with the title track from Oregon’s astroskeleton’s fantastic “you are not alone”, and a wonderful new track from the new EP by Aberfeldy’s Star Wheel Press. Super.

Red Wanting Blue: Black Canyon

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 14:00

Red Wanting BlueColumbus Ohio’s RED WANTING BLUE are on the verge of releasing a new album “Little America” this Summer after 2012′s “From the Vanishing Point”. The last album apparently hit the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, but we unfortunately completely missed this achievement after featuring the band on the Dose back in 2010. But hot damn, I can easily now say that the newest single ‘Black Canyon’ is the perfect song for the entire upcoming Summer and likewise “Little America’s” release on July 1st. The vocals strike somewhere in the vein of Wintersleep or even that of Eddie Vedder, conjuring up the perfect feeling of Americana, long sunny days/warm nights, and strong new memories forged with family & friends.

“Little America” celebrates a community spirit that Red Wanting Blue shares with its audience, that goes beyond fans who simply give back the passion that comes off the stage. Red Wanting Blue’s hard work is matched by fans who work hard, too. It’s not unexpected for members of this growing legion to take days off of work and cross state lines to follow the band, to learn just-written tunes from wobbly YouTube videos, and to sing every word at every concert.

Band leader Scott Terry sums up his connection with the songs on “Little America” and his connection with Red Wanting Blue’s fans this way: “These songs are the soundtrack of my life, and it’s my calling to give that back with the hope of having our songs be the soundtrack of someone else’s.”

JW Show 231: Comedy Roadtrip

The Justin Wayne Show - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 08:00

Hilarity ensued on the show this week as the Comedy Roadtrip came to town, allowing me a few minutes with Billy Anderson, Aaron Kirby and Robert Lackey. I got a good education into the Seattle and Tacoma comedy scenes and learned about this crazy undertaking of a tour they’ve embarked on.

Correction: We banged on about The Undivided’s new album “World’s Apart” and were mistaken, it’s called “This New Day” as we’ve previously reported – no idea why we decided to change it now! The album IS out today, so go grab it from their website.

Douga: Kids of Tomorrow

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 04/08/2014 - 14:00


Manchester band DOUGA are about to release their debut LP, The Silent Well on the 19th of May via Do Make Merge Records.

Named after a childhood nickname given by his parents to founder, frontman, and former Plank! drummer Johnny Winbolt-Lewis, Douga recorded their album (sans vocals) at 80 Hertz studio with George Atkins, although the bulk of the record was recorded at BlueSCI – a service and space set up in Trafford, Manchester, for people who suffer from psychological and emotional distress. Winbolt-Lewis volunteers there and as such many of the sensitivities of those he comes into contact with have indirectly rubbed off on the record’s own reflective, deeply thoughtful resonance.
