Formed in early 2013 by drummer Jeff Lees and guitarist Angelo Morreale, Shadow Of The Flag set out to make music that would stand the test of time. Both come from the Pittsburgh, PA area. They started writing music online using a Mac, Logic Pro and the wonderful visuals of Skype! Upon the completion of their third song they set out on their global search for a singer to front their project.
After wading through several submissions from fine singers from all over the world the choice was clear, Gordon McCready from Toronto, Canada was the new front man for Shadow Of The Flag. Recently the band added guitarist Don Sigmund to the lineup to add a much fuller sound to their live performances.
They’ve added a few extra tracks to their Soundcloud page, and the new songs are just as good, with a signature full guitar sound and gravitational dark pull that will leave the listener enraptured and undoubtably digging for more.Download Do the Math HypeMachine

From the Restless Years free indie artist celebration compilation comes Adelaide Australia band THE HARD ACHES. They’ve got a four song EP out, Organs & Airports, with the first track ‘Die Young, Die Happy‘ appearing on this thirty-two track smorgasbord of unreleased and exclusive tracks out of Australia.
The release includes a PDF zine supplement, which notes the three band members as Bri Mahoney, Ben David, and Alex Upton. Their sound is quickly described here as “sing along punk songs about feelings and running away,” although make sure to check the compilation link below for MUCH more.Download Die Young, Die Happy HypeMachine

The second Dose of the New Year is the Debut single from Floridian fuzz punks The Modern Sixties. Check out their Facebook page for a few details, but they’re so recently formed that there isn’t a lot of information out there yet. Its a great track, we’re wondering if there is any more fuzz left after this. Hopefully yes, and we’ll be hearing more from them in 2015. Check out the heart-stopping break in the middle of this song too, it had me worried for a moment, but all ends well.
Happy New Year from all of us here at IR! From the free Olive Grove Records sampler comes Randolph’s Leap, an 8-piece Glasgow-based folk-pop band. Today’s featured track and another of RL’s excellent songs, Counting Sheep, can both be downloaded along with about ten other tracks through the Scottish record label compilation link further below.

A fitting end to 2014 and a welcome to 2015, we found this track by Manchester, UK band Decoration who were discovered and championed by John Peel, and are still recording more than ten years later. They released their fourth album in October. Check out their BandCamp link below for a wealth of material. Today’s Dose was featured on the Small Bear Records Christmas sampler in 2012, and was on an EP (Pine/I Just Froze/See You in the New Year) released in 2005.
It’s the end of year podcast – the last one of 2014. As such I’m tucking into an array of left over Christmas food and drink, including a nice red ale and the remnants of a cheese selection. All the good cheeses have gone mind you, and I’m stuck with Wensleydale and Cranberry. There’s also a gingerbread house… although that’s been kicking around for a couple of weeks so I suspect it’s not a great idea to start on that.
Anyway, more importantly it’s the second half of the best tracks from 2014 as voted by the listeners of the show. Some fantastic selections in there, and the number one track is absolutely spot on if you ask me.

As another milestone New Year approaches for 2015, we thought it would be nice to feature the close-out Daily Dose feature from Montreal songwriting duo, Bride & Groom. They released a fun EP for the Holidays, ‘A Very Merry Bride & Groom Christmas‘ and this beautiful traditional track is the final one, although we have one last track on the Dose tomorrow that Stuart will be unveiling from the other side of the pond.
Enjoy, and have a safe and hopefully profound NY Eve!Download Auld Lang Syne HypeMachine
Lovegrenade are a three piece from Tel Aviv in Israel, who released their 3rd album Your night will come on limited edition vinyl and name your price download from BandCamp. Today’s Dose is the opening track on the album.
