IR Orlando #9
Hello again… autumn has arrived in Orlando and the temperature has finally dipped below 95! It’s my favorite season, so if I sound a little perkier, it’s because I’m happy that the long, hot summer is waning…

Life of Pi
From their 2005 album ‘Pyrrhic Victory,’ available on iTunes along with their debut ‘Sunrise with Seamonsters.’ New album ‘Monsoon Season’ is due out this fall, and one preview track is available on their MySpace page.
The BradLeo Administration
Another sneak peek from a soon-to-be-released 7-inch from Florida’s Dying. Brad recently left Orlando, and he played what may be his last Orlando show for a while last weekend. We’ll miss him!
‘Shut Up and Kiss Me’
In the course of emailing with these guys to ask about playing their music on the show, I learned that they are in the process of incorporating steel guitar, writing a new album and changing their old stuff a bit. They have a new sound, but we agreed that this song still sounds very good!
‘Letter of Intent’
The shortest song I’ve played on IR Orlando, this one clocks in at just 1:02. He’s a one-man band, a bit of a man of mystery who simply describes himself as ‘a loner from Fort Lauderdale’ who now resides in Winter Park.
‘Love & Friction’
Their debut full-length release, ‘Love and Friction’ is due out in November. It was engineered by Ryan Freeland, whose credits include Aimee Mann, Ryan Adams, and Fiona Apple.
Dish consists of 2 brothers – Roberto and Nathaniel Aguilar. Roberto does the singing and guitar & mandolin work to go along with Nathaniel’s unique ‘junk-gypsy found percussion’ (pots, pans, guttertubes, sheet metal, etc.).
‘My Heart Is Weighed and Found Wanting, Kabul’
The Oaks’ first full-length album, called ‘Our Fathers and the Things They Left Behind’ came out in August 2006.
I can’t say enough nice things about these guys – they are excellent musicians and excellent people. They recently sent me a copy of their album and it’s been in heavy rotation for me ever since. The album is textured with audio clips recorded during guitarist/vocalist Ryan Costello’s 2-year stint with the humanitarian organization Global Hope Network. Not only is it an excellent album, but a full 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Global Hope Network to aid refugees in Afghanistan. You can purchase it by following the links on their website. Visit www.ryancostello.com to see the many photos Ryan took while living in Kabul, Afghanistan.
This is a project involving 2 guys:
Buddah-Kai, who used to be the resident DJ at Barbarellas, and has played guest spots at Firestone, Antigua and the Blue Room in Orlando, and
Dr. Dabble, who got his start at the young age of 14, back in 1994.
You can buy their stuff at the Vinyl Chemistry website.
