Demolition Means Progress: North Wind http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/25/demolition-means-progress-north-wind/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/25/demolition-means-progress-north-wind/#comments Mon, 25 May 2015 12:00:19 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48485 BJ Bonin and Mike McCloskey became Demolition Means Progress in late 2011, having toured together since 2000 (as The Underthings). Grant Martin joined in 2013 to complete the lineup, and they have an ongoing collaboration with Minneapolis cellist Amy Waller.

Demolition Means Progress Their first EP “Destroy as Directed” features song topics ranging from politics to silly road trips to relationships, each with a different musical theme (punk, americana, rock). “Destroy as Directed” has been described as REM meets the Pixies, or Billy Bragg meets Sugar. Think Teenage Fanclub with a cellist, or Murder By Death with shoegaze pedals, the EP has garnered airplay on independent radio stations around the country.

Demolition Means Progress is currently recording their sophomore effort “Lovesongs for Saboteurs.” The LP features songs about work, debt, despair, and love with strong melodies and harmony,

jangly guitar, bass chords, and some cello over layers of reverb that comes close to shoegaze without crossing that event horizon. [bio]

Opa!: Russian State Museum’s Lottery http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/24/opa-russian-state-museums-lottery/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/24/opa-russian-state-museums-lottery/#comments Sun, 24 May 2015 12:00:06 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48506 Opa!Opa! unites musicians from different parts of the huge area of the former USSR, who came together in Saint-Petersburg, the multicultural capital of Russia. This band is a product of self-expression via experienced musicians who grew up on a fertile ground of traditional weddings of the 90s, town celebrations, and world music festivals around the world.

The band’s music expresses freedom and euphoria of post-soviet spirit and ancient enigma of Russian soul. Open-hearted shows, the multilingual lyrics of “Opa!” and their willingness to give it all to the audience make this wild positive folk remarkable and understandable for everyone around the world.

Poppy Brothers: Pillow Talk http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/22/poppy-brothers-pillow-talk/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/22/poppy-brothers-pillow-talk/#comments Fri, 22 May 2015 12:00:30 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48470 Poppy Brothers just released their new album Dreams of the Newly Awake and today’s Dose Pillow Talk is from it.

Poppy Brothers

Poppy Brothers is an American electropop duo consisting of vocalist James Tillman and producer Matthew Taylor. In 2012 the real life brothers released three radically different songs online which ranged from smooth R&B to thick alternative rock. However, it was the slick electropop gem One that caught fire and propelled the brothers to record a full-length album: 2013’s Mark of the Beat. Shortly after the release, the pop duo returned with the even more ambitious collection End of the Rainbow before beginning work on their sophomore LP Sour Fruit, which saw the brothers sharpening their pop credentials on tracks like Dance Floor Forever and Perfect. Less than a year later, the brothers are back again with their fourth release in three years, 2015’s adventurous Dreams of the Newly Awake.” [bio]
