Weak-Willed: Rods and Cones

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Sat, 03/29/2014 - 14:00

Weak-WilledRods and Cones is from the Austin, Texas electronic duo of Tyler James Flowers and Hector Carlos Ramirez, otherwise known as WEAK-WILLED. Their six song self-titled EP released this past January, with a self-described style as senseless dorm room music. They’ve got a few new excellent tracks you can check out on the social sites below and you can pick up the EP at Bandcamp for $5.

We thought we’d introduce you to the music via the EP as this exceptional track really caught our attention, although do make sure to hit up Soundcloud for some S y n e s t h e s i a, and other excellent new efforts.

Dave's Lounge Music Podcast #281Every so often, when I’m trying to put together a mix that just isn’t working, I tell myself I’m going to shove these tracks to the side, dig up a bunch of songs from the Dave’s Lounge back catalog, and play those songs instead. Most of the time, that feeling subsides, and I play the new stuff instead. This week? It actually happened. If you’re new to Dave’s Lounge, here’s a taste of what you’ve been missing over the years…

Edinburgh Man #160

Edinburgh Man Podcasts - Thu, 03/27/2014 - 19:14

Another pre-recorded podcast tonight on account of Edinburgh Man Junior current avant-garde approach to sleeping. In fact it’s the second of two attempts at recording today’s show. First of all I thought it would be a great idea to record the podcast walking down the canal tow-path. This was without checking the weather, which would have shown me that there were twenty mile an hour winds at the time. Unsurprisingly the resulting recording didn’t sound too good and I aborted the whole thing after 20 minutes.

The second take fared a little better. Recorded late in the afternoon before Edinburgh Man Junior was collected from nursery, all we had to contend with was the noise of next door neighbours having a bathroom fitted, the other next door neighbours small child “cleaning the stair” and vacuum cleaning going on in our flat. So nothing much then.

Scarlett Rabe brings her heart-ferlt music to us this week.

Scarlett Rabe brings her heart-felt music to us this week.

A selection of some considerable contrast this week with a couple of quietly beautiful and affecting tracks matched up with some solidly crafted pop from California and Singapore and even a blast of Australian electronic dance music.

 

WeareshiningWheel – We Are Shining (London, UK)

‘DEVILEYES’ is the latest offering from London-based WE ARE SHINING. An 8-track mixtape showcasing the duos signature hypnotic blend of vocal led beats; stand out tracks include their debut release ‘HEY YOU!’, ‘WHEEL’ and title track ‘DEVILEYE’ ft. vocals from Roses Gabor and the recently unveiled ‘KILLING’.

Meeting in London, the production duo ‘We Are Shining’ (are Acyde and Morgan) discovered an affinity for making music together after several years of connecting at some of London most forward thinking and musically expansive club nights.

Exhibiting an outright lack of restraint with their instinctive outbursts of beats, raw grooves and psychedelic noise – what holds their music together is what should tear it apart.  Adhering to no single style or genre, We Are Shining stand out for their unique and distinctly modern approach.

Featuring vocals from Eliza Doolittle, ‘KILLING’ became the soundtrack to one of the most anxiety-driven and heart-stopping dance displays ever seen. The video features professional knife thrower James Taylor and blade dodging dancer Shannelle ‘Tali’ Fergus.

The Fool and the Thief (Feat. Tim Gelo) – Dee C’rell (London, UK)

Holm Records presents three new compositions from Dee C’rell under the title, Kommunikation, with featured German trumpet player, Tim Gelo.

The Fool and the Thief is a down-tempo, contemporary electro-acoustic jazz composition that brings Dee C’rell back to electronics and grand piano, alongside the trumpet tones of German musician Tim Gelo. Combining the elements of electronic sound manipulation, acoustic piano, and the electroacoustic treated down-tempo rhythms, The Fool and the Thief merges all of the possibilities of contemporary electro-acoustic jazz in an exquisite composition.

Wicked – Boy Epic (Location unknown)

The song, which is the third instalment of what Boy Epic calls “an intensely personal” video trilogy, comes as his online popularity is skyrocketing. His recent rendition of “Say Something” by A Great Big World (and featuring Christina Aguilera) has nearly 2 million YouTube views in just over two months.

Like its predecessors, “Hell” and “Say Something,” “Wicked” focuses on the darker side of a relationship gone bad. “Wicked” was, according to Boy Epic, “the most difficult of the three videos to film.” The Dallas, Texas native lost 15 pounds to accurately portray the negative effects of the depression and mental instability that often follow a traumatizing event. The video for “Wicked” finds Boy Epic somehow managing to sing while being restrained and seemingly overwhelmed and clawed at by hands covered in a black paint-like material.

For the sake of achieving authentic emotion, Boy Epic decided to feature in his videos someone he knew well: his ex-girlfriend. The two had recently broken up when filming began, so if it seems as if Boy Epic’s anguish is real throughout the trilogy, it is.

Battle Cry - Scarlett Rabe (Santa Monica, CA. USA)

Scarlett Rabe, the classically trained prodigy turned soulful singer/songwriter, unveils the new lyric video for “Battle Cry,” the new single off her EP Scarlett. “Battle Cry” will be made available in her online store. Scarlett, who was forbidden as a child from participating in pop culture, now has over one million fans on her Facebook page. She has recently won comparisons to Feist and Florence and the Machine.

Her parents prohibited television and radio. At the same time, they adamantly preached the classical arts. This included five hours each day that were dedicated to piano practice – a tedious routine that honed her musical craft. The result was that her early exposure to pop and rock music came from secretly listening to the radio, forbidden as it was. Scarlett explains: “I’d lay awake at night in my bed writing my secret songs. I’d silently sing about a girl who was suffocating, who wasn’t really alive. The music saved me, pushed me, made me free.”

Independent music growing but still in the margins

According to information just published by Tunecore, one of the largest digital distributors for indie and unsigned artists alongside services like ReverbNation and CDBaby, indie artist revenues grew by almost 20% last year, four times as fast as overall recording revenues which grew at under 5%.

But don’t get too excited.

Despite the heady growth among indies, mainstream artists are completely and utterly eclipsing independent artists overall. According to a recently-released study by MIDiA Consulting, the top 1% of artists are making 77% of all recording revenues.

Another interesting trend from the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) Digital Music Report, is that unofficial videos are getting more traffic (and generating more advertising revenue) than official artist videos. You know the answer, let the artists make unofficial videos.

 

Come together – Light Year (Sydney, Australia / London, UK)

Light Year came to be, many aeons ago, in a celestial orb – just slightly to the east of Australia’s dance music capital, Sydney.

Light Year’s final release on Bang Gang: “Moderation” made waves within the electronic music scene with Tensnake & Tiga calling it one of their favourite tunes of 2012. Moderation later received remixes courtesy of Paul Woolford’s Special Request project and Jori Hulkkonen (of My Favourite Robot and Turbo fame), which resulted in further worldwide acclaim.

2013 saw Light Year make a definitive move to the UK to allow himself to settle and hone his craft. The move paid instant dividends as Light Year enjoyed a very successful year in the studio with noteworthy releases on distinguished labels Turbo, Convex Industries and This is Music.

Next Monday, Light Year will be releasing his highly anticipated first EP with seminal electronic music record label Ghostly/Spectral. As he continues to work hard behind a rack of drum machines and synthesizers, in his studio, making sounds to merge the global dance floor community into a singular consciousness of light, sound and dance.

Take Me To Love - Monster Cat (Singapore)

MONSTER CAT releases their radical full-length record The Violet Hour. Produced by Tim Carr (Matt Corby, Flea, Mark Ronson) at the famed Studios 301 in Sydney.

Lushly layered and full of fresh, exotic sounds, MONSTER CAT’s new album The Violet Hour is hard to pin down. Despite drawing from a host of genres, the record focuses on creating intense, melodic rock songs while keeping the band’s trademark vocal harmonies. The result is an exciting and emotional sonic trip, that aims to give the listener new perspectives on the rock paradigm.

MONSTER CAT is slated to tour the new record in China (JUE Festival featuring The Lumineers), Australia and Europe for the year 2014. A music video is in the works for their lead single “Take Me To Love”, with more videos and new merchandise to come.

65daysofstatic: Retreat! Retreat!

Insomnia Radio Daily Dose - Wed, 03/26/2014 - 11:00

65daysofstaticUsually the Daily Dose is new music. This is new, as in re-released on the 10th anniversary of its release in 2004. We have always featured 65dos on The Network, when we can, so here is the promo track from “The Fall of Math”.

On the album’s significance the band had the following to say:

“In the first year of the weird post 9/11 future we all now occupy, 65daysofstatic wrote a record entirely by mistake in an obscure room in the North of England, usually in the evening after finishing whatever day jobs we were holding down. In the weird spring of 2003 we watched in horror as the US invaded Iraq, aided by our own morally destitute government and seemingly for completely fabricated reasons. A month later, we went into the studio to record the music that would become The Fall of Math aided by the kindness of Monotreme Records, the label that helped to build 65dos from the ground up into a viable commodity fit for digestion in the public sphere. We pulled a huge round the clock session, aided by the wisdom and skill of the infamous Alan Smyth, a man whose expertise and advice we seek to this day. While not exactly a global smash, The Fall of Math was met with some excitement by a number of people we had never dreamed of, and threw us into a world of very hard touring and recording for the foreseeable future. In short, it changed our lives, as did the aftermath of the events we were quasi-soundtracking by living through.

“While 65daysofstatic are no longer the same people we were back then, The Fall of Math holds a great significance for us. Maybe it does for you too. The world is as big a mess as it ever was. Come and see the results in March!”

ARTIST INFORMATION

TREETOP
TreeTopMusic.co.uk

Treetop is the solo project of Craig Lamb, a singer songwriter from Liverpool. Treetop began in the summer of 2013 and took off in a big way with numerous support slots, a live session for BBC introducing and an extremely well received performance at the Liverpool Music Awards. Since then, Craig has continued to gig around the northwest and record in a variety of locations around Liverpool. The first song to be released from these recording sessions is “I Just Need You” – a sparse stripped back song combining electric guitar and vocals, recently released for free from TreeTopOfficial.bandcamp.com

With many other releases planned for the coming months along with numerous high profile gigs, 2014 looks to be a good year for Treetop.

THROWING PANDAS
reverbnation.com/throwingpandas

An eclectic mix of sounds, heavily acoustic, with a great slab of ukelele sparkle, from funky to folky with influence from Dylan to Arcade Fire; from Marley to Midlake; sweet songs and revolutionary tales of a war with humans and pandas! A new sound has arrived – freshened folk alternative with a psychedelic twist!

CARL FOULKES JONES
soundcloud.com/carl-foulkes-jones

Sounding loosely like a street quartet of musicians Carl plays four instruments at once: a bass pedal (made up of old piano hammers and bass guitar strings) with his right foot, a snare drum with his left foot, a hung harmonica and acoustic guitar.

Armed with this he goes about troubadour alike exploring the rootsy end of the pop spectrum and playing in a long line of tradition with songs passed down from country blues to folk. Recording has been done live at the minute and Jones is in the process of recording his first album to be called Monkey Chunk.

MILLIE COURTNEY
facebook.com/millie.courtney.33

12 year old Millie Courtney hit the press last year with her self-penned Hillsborough tribute Broken Winged Angels. Since then she has been awarded an Artist Development Deal by Bold Management with Martin O’Shea as her manager.Millie recently played the Young Musicians Showcase at The Brink and is looking forward to announcing more exciting gigs for later this year.
