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.

ARTIST INFORMATION

ROXANNE DE BASTION
roxannedebastion.com

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”
Artrocker

“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 youtu.be/l0MakOHNq8Y – Here’s the video for Seeing You, the title track from Roxanne’s current EP.

 

JEZ WING
cousinjac.com

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 youtu.be/Mwp6ATVn5GI – Here’s Jez Wing performing with his solo project Cousin Jac live a the Kazimier.

 

JO BYWATER
jobywater.com

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.

Roadhouse 521

The Roadhouse Podcast - Sun, 02/22/2015 - 01:16
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.

Fabryka: Young Signals

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 02/21/2015 - 13:00

FabrykaBuri Italy based indie pop band Fabryka will be arriving here stateside in Austin, TX this coming March for the South By Southwest Musical Festival, their debut performance there. The group is apparently led by vocalist Tiziana Felle, who interestingly sings in Italian and English, and has been compared to Feist, CHRVCHES, and St. Vincent.

In 2012 everything came together for the band when they released 5 Days, a successful EP that brought Fabryka all over Italy and abroad. It is from the 5 Days EP that today’s featured track comes, a beautiful effort and one of many great discoveries on this five track release.

For those in Austin, Texas this March, Fabryka’s SXSW showcase is on Friday, March 20 at Buffalo Billiards. Fabryka will follow their stop at SXSW with an appearance at Primavera Sound in Spain and then onward to their third EP in April 2015.

Watch their video for “The Good Insight” further below.

Auditorium: Ten Ton Park

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Fri, 02/20/2015 - 13:00
Artist Auditorium is the musical project of Los Angeles based Spencer Berger, and today’s Dose is his new single.

Spencer says “When I was a kid, I performed onstage from the ages of 9-12 with a variety of large, sweaty, golden-throated dudes like Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo in front of thousands. Nowadays, I perform by myself in my bedroom in front of my old He-Man action figures. It’s not quite as grand, but it’s less sweaty, and a good deal more cozy.”

Edinburgh Man #193

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 02/19/2015 - 20:42

Back when I started this podcast I made it 30 minutes long. Partially because I had no idea what I was doing, but mostly because I thought that 30 minutes was a good length of time for a new music podcast. Over the years it hass grown in size to 45-60 minutes in length for a variety of reasons. However, recently I’ve been listening to lots more podcast during my commute, and I still think there is a sweet spot round about half an hour. So, as an experiment, we’re reverting to 30 minute long podcasts for a few weeks. I don’t want you to feel like you’re being short changed though, so there’ll be two a week! Starting next week. 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

In other news I shaved my beard off. My chin is cold and my son laughs hysterically at me.

NoPop: O, TV

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Thu, 02/19/2015 - 13:00

NopopNoPop is a nowave, pop act out of Brooklyn heavily influenced by such groups as the Pixies, DNA, Minutemen, and David Bowie. In April we saw the first single O, TV from their new effort, an excellent song that drives home, hitting the raw pulse and energy behind some of the peak years of those they are influenced by, albeit containing the band’s own unique pink-punk touch.

NoPop’s first EP “See Pretty” was officially released in May of 2014 and can be found at the Bandcamp link below for immediate purchase. In addition, you can also check out more from the band and a slew of other great artists on Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen Compilation: Section 5 at the link below.

Elle Exxe (pronounced L.X.) describes herself as an explosion. After amassing well over 1mil YouTube hits, regular shout outs on one of the worlds biggest blogs PerezHilton.com and reaching the coveted top spots on the Hype Machine charts with her last single “Dirty Beat (Kat Krazy Remix)”, the artist formerly known as Harrison made the shock decision to set the counters back to zero and refresh as Elle Exxe. Starting from scratch may sound hard for some, but within a month of launching as Elle Exxe, she had shared a stage with acts like Professor Green, Jess Glynn and MNEK at Westfield London’s Music Cube (sponsored by Kiss FM & Sennheiser). She has new music ready for release in 2015 both self-produced and cowritten with the likes of Kevin Hastings (Rihanna, Lady GaGa), Jon Castelli(Jason Derulo, Gotye). Her style takes the best from hip-hop to rock but lands firm in the dirty pop arena.

FJOKRA

Fjokra and his eponymous band have gained a reputation for exhibiting a uniquely bizarre and energetic live show that ‘combines near-minimalistic, lo-fi electro-pop with retro swing, metal and occasional epic Muse-like explosions’ (Time Out). Gracing the stages at Isle Of Wight Festival, Beach Break Festival, Shambala, Boomtown and Liverpool Sound City, Fjokra was also hand picked by Adam Ant as support for his London show in November 2014.

During the summer of 2014 Fjokra worked with director Catherine Hardwicke on her latest film Miss You Already starring Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine. Fjokra and his band feature in a concert scene performing one of his own compositions and also plays the part of Dominic Cooper’s best friend throughout the film. Miss You Already is scheduled for international release in 2015.

“I want to recommend something new to iTunes this week, a very exciting new band..Fjokra” – John Taylor, Duran Duran.

“Im going to have to go and lie down in a darkened room after playing that”. – Gary Crowley, BBC Radio London on playing Infinite Loops

“Sex music for metallers” – Peanut Baines, Kaiser Chiefs

“The ever impossible to pigeon-hole Fjokra with the musical masterpiece that is Slyrex.” – Peter Donaldson, Absolute Radio

FRAGILE SOULS

Fragile Souls are ready to bring 21st century porch blues to a time where music is lacking something fresh, with one foot firmly planted in electronica and the other foot in chain gang blues an integral sound that has brought the two hues together as one genre. The Fragile Souls take pride in giving the listener a visual experience; their tracks evoke the primal gift of dance and the deep dream like trance of a movie soundtrack “Devil Sun” Fragile Souls’s next single launches on 3rd March. Alongside the releases will be be two alternative mixes thanks to their friends at Quote Records. This showcase is being used to platform the release.

“ unique with its unusual combination of components (which), through the beauty of music they produce a canny beat and work perfectly together.” Gigslutz review.

“Music when it hits you, it hits you hard – here is Fragile Souls Devils Sun” – Huey Lewis – BBC Radio 2

JORDAN ALLEN

“Bolton songwriter Jordan Allen has been simultaneously blessed and cursed by the label “Manchester’s Answer to Jake Bugg” – but he’s so much better than that. This fierce, feisty debut single has a tough energy that owes far more to The Hives or Arctic Monkeys – and carries off the kind of swagger and attitude that young Jake can only dream of. Sharp lyrics, great attitude and a seemingly unstoppable momentum behind him – what’s not to like?” Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music Introducing.

“It would be easy, but lazy, to describe Jordan Allen as the half-way point between Alex Turner and Jake Bugg. That said, fans of Arctic Monkeys and Bugg will most likely find something in Allen’s songs of Northern accented dark nights and sharp lyrics that they approve of. Unsigned – but probably not for long!” – Fred Perry Subculture

“Intelligent, articulate lyrics laced with an ascerbic wit observing people and situations around them married to robust tunes that already show a rich diversity of sound.” – Even The Stars

RACHAEL SAGE

New Yorker, Rachael Sage  combines music with between-song banter, which The New York Times dubbed Sage’s “inner Fanny Brice”, and “Jewish Norah Jones”—even going so far as to call her a comedienne.

A soulful vocalist,  innovative multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer. Rachael Sage has become one of the busiest touring artists in independent music, performing 100+ dates a year with her band The Sequins throughout the US, UK, Europe and Asia.

Sage has shared stages with Sarah McLachlan, A Great Big World, Judy Collins, Colin Hay, Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, The Animals and Ani DiFranco. She has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received numerous songwriting awards including The John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize) and several Independent Music Awards. Her songs have appeared on MTV, HBO, the “Fame” soundtrack, and in the current season of Lifetime’s #1 reality series, “Dance Moms”

“One part Elton John, one part Kate Bush.” — Uncut

“Her keen ironic sense of humor and quirky sense of the profound is what makes her special as a songwriter” — billboard.com

Saycet: Volcano (Julia Losfelt remix)

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Tue, 02/17/2015 - 13:00

SaycetVolcano marks Saycet’s discography comeback on “Mirage“, the third album for his Saycet project following One Day at Home and Through the Window. Since the last release, he has had four years where he was finally able to devote all his time to music, including multiple collaborations with the Pompidou Centre and France Culture, and a live tour that took him as far as Asia and Russia:

“I wanted to make a much more elegant, more frontal record, something less convoluted.”

Saycet’s new track was remixed quite brilliantly by 23-year old Parisian producer and singer, Julia Losfelt, whom you can find out more about at her music site below.
