Foggy City Orphan: Rocket

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 01/07/2016 - 13:00

Foggy City OrphanFoggy City Orphan formed in early 2015 in a Glasgow basement, the band name apparently the Chinese translation of Dickens’ Oliver Twist. FCO will mark their first anniversary with the launch of their debut single, Rocket, on February 1st at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut’s annual New Year’s Revolution Festival. Its quite an infectious track that coincides nicely with consistent worldwide news of reusable rockets, space tourism and 3-D printed engines.

The band has apparently had quite a productive past year apparently. While they’ve started to gather some serious attention in the UK, the band’s singer, Paul, also won a Scottish BAFTA for composing the score for an award winning BBC Scotland documentary. This great news has been coupled with sell-out shows supporting acts such as Dexters, Calm Fiasco and Scottish Indie luminaries Spare Snare.

The Story So Far: Scowl

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 01/05/2016 - 13:00

The Story So FarFrom Walnut Creek, CA, the bay area band released their self-titled album via Pure Noise on May 18, 2015. Their excellent singles “Solo” and “Heavy Gloom” appear to be the first singles, but we gravitated to “Scowl“, a track with chugging guitars reminiscent of Kirsch-era Pinhead Gunpowder. The powerful vocals also effectuate the precision instrumentation, definitely a favorite off this very solid release.

You can purchase the 10 tracks via their Pure Noise page at Bandcamp below, and if you are in Brazil at the end of January ’16 you are in luck as they are playing there for several days (tourdates at their website)

MIRA: Ghost

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sun, 01/03/2016 - 13:00

MIRAGöteborg Sweden based singer-songwriter Mira Aasma [MIRA] released the single Ghost about six months ago. Its quite a stunning multi-faceted emotionally charged song, guided throughout by Mira’s beautiful vocals. The instrumentation on the single uniquely conjures up a dark haunting dreamscape [perhaps in the vein of Neko Case], perfect to go along with a future animated video perhaps.

Not much is currently known about MIRA, but you can bet with the strength of her four singles on Soundcloud [take a test spin on Aligned for another great example], much more will be forthcoming soon. A few social links follow.

Roadhouse 566

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sat, 01/02/2016 - 15:44
With the first show of the new year, I take a look back at the old, with an hour of some of my favorite releases from 2015. Buddy Guy, Cash Box Kings, Knickerbocker All-Stars, Sonny Landreth, and Slam Allen are just some of the names that represent the finest and freshest blues from 2015. And they lay the foundation for another hour of the finest blues of the year just passed - the 566th Roadhouse.

Paper Beat Scissors: Go On

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 01/02/2016 - 13:00

Paper Beat ScissorsHeaded by vocalist Tim Crabtree, Paper Beat Scissors is best described as a musical monstrosity deposited in Halifax, Nova Scotia after the first years in Burnley, England.

While the eponymous debut album was concerned with ends, Go On focuses on starting again; putting your head down and pushing forward. The songs alternately shimmer and float, while reserving the right to occasionally punch you in the gut for good measure.

Produced by Crabtree, Go On was set in motion in London, Ontario in 2013 with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes). Fleshed out in Nova Scotia, tracks were bounced around Montreal, New York, and even rural Lancashire, before the album was mixed by Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin). Crabtree’s reputation as an orchestrator has been growing following symphony and chamber orchestra concerts across Canada and his arrangements give a unique stamp to Go On. The album was officially released on August 14, 2015.

Best of 2015

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Fri, 01/01/2016 - 23:22

It’s the Edinburgh Man Best of 2015 show!

If you listened to the show throughout 2015 you’ll know that I had some issues with the regularity of the show in terms of duration, content and release dates. Normally at the end of the year I produce two shows comprising a listener voted top 50 tracks of the year. This year, I just didn’t have the time to devote to putting such a show together. However, in making the “weekly” shows I stick a rating in the comments field of the tracks – this helps me select the music for each show. So this year, instead of doing a listener selection, I just sorted all the tracks I played by my rating, and out popped a 25 track show! No more thought and preparation has gone into this show – other than pouring myself a big glass of Drambuie – so it’s likely to be as much of a surprise to me as you.
