Also, they’ve had some great success gigging with their international debut at Croatia’s INmusic Festival alongside The Arctic Monkeys & Basement Jaxx.

Big Wild: Aftergold http://insomniaradio.net/2015/04/23/big-wild-aftergold/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/04/23/big-wild-aftergold/#comments Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:00:08 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48169 Big Wild“Aftergold” by Big Wild is the second release from Foreign Family Collective, a brand new highly anticipated outlet for musicians and visual artists alike curated by the duo behind ODESZA.

Big Wild is Venice, CA based musician Jackson Stell who likes to tap into our natural curiosities by bending conventional boundaries in music and bringing danceable beats to the masses in the same fell swoop. We’ve included a bit of his Youtube hosted video below via a venue in Bloomington, Indiana, a pretty cool look at his live dynamic and well worth watching through. As of yesterday he was heading upwards on the Hype Machine charts at #4, now onward to “#1 with a bullet”.

The group’s musical style has been described as catchy reverb-ish indierock with postpunk, dreampop and shoegaze influences that takes inspiration from the likes of Interpol, Foals and DIIV.

“The band, centered on the songwriting partnership of Joren Heuvels and Bram Schabbink, also includes Tom Groeneveld on bass and Mette Veldhuis on drums.” [bio]

Their new EP As We Stand In Line will be released soon.

Emerald Park: LiberTeens http://insomniaradio.net/2015/04/21/emerald-park-liberteens/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/04/21/emerald-park-liberteens/#comments Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:00:30 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48148 LiberteensMalmo, Sweden’s Emerald Park are back with a sample from their forthcoming release, GO! GO! GO!. The first single, “Liberteens” comes from the promising new album due June 23rd.

The song “Liberteens” was written after the group had listened to some Imogen Heap and were deciding on how best to incorporate Autotune into their music.

We’ve also embedded the great song and video below for the pretty recent release of “Blue” from the “Black Box EP” in July 2014. The video was shot by Ormdadet Film & Media in April 2014 outside The AstraStube in Hamburg the day after an Emerald Park gig.

The Vultures: Weakest Storm http://insomniaradio.net/2015/04/19/the-vultures-weakest-storm/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/04/19/the-vultures-weakest-storm/#comments Sun, 19 Apr 2015 21:59:43 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48138 Artist The Vultures are a London sextet whose roots lie in five countries spanning three continents, they create songs that strain at the seams with eerie majesty and bewitching melody, courtesy of three-part vocals, cello, violin, viola, bass and drums. This is a band who eschew guitars, synths and digitalism in favour of intense in-the-flesh performance. The group’s darkly gorgeous soundscape encompasses influences from Bjork to Blondie, Serge Gainsbourg to The Pixies, and was beautifully captured on their 2015 debut LP ‘Three Mothers Part 1’, a sensual, sinister and proudly singular masterclass in neo-gothic sonics and timeless tunes.
