They say they play “Noise Pop / Space R&B / Kraut Jazz / Psychodelicious Gucci Shoegaze.”

They also say this of themselves: “Imagine your head’s stuck in the belly of an oud, run through a battery of effect pedals, then amplified to hell with old tube cabinets, and you might get close to grasping what racket Tigers of the West have been making in their rehearsal shack.”

Joe Morton: Giants http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/18/joe-morton-giants/ http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/18/joe-morton-giants/#comments Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:00:24 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=46277 Joe MortonNew Zealand artist Joe Morton released his debut single a few months back after recording this stunning first effort at Parachute Studios with producer Sam De Jong. We couldn’t find too much out there on this artist to date, but we found the following description of this rootsy song on his SC profile:

“Giants is little story inspired from my time living on the orchards around Motueka as a boy. While my parents were busy apple picking, I’d go play in the river with the other ‘hippie’ kids, it felt like we’d play there all day, then we’d make our way back to the tiny orchard bach’s, the evening sun would make our shadows look like giants.”

I Am the Sky: If You Love Me (Overnight at McGill Studios) http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/16/i-am-the-sky-if-you-love-me-overnight-at-mcgill-studios/ http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/16/i-am-the-sky-if-you-love-me-overnight-at-mcgill-studios/#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:00:05 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=46251 I Am the SkyJesse Daniel Smith is one-half of the incredible Canadian songwriter duo, Bride and Groom, and has another new solo project you may not know about entitled, I Am the Sky. He issued a new single this past October, of which you are hearing here today, and looks to have just posted a great Dylan cover in the last week on his Soundcloud stream. I Am The Sky’s first album, “The World Doesn’t Need Another Record” was released a few months previous on August 19th and from the looks of it, Jesse is now involved in writing his second anticipated effort, “The Follow Up”.

JDS claims to have recently had open access to a recording studio from Midnight to 5am and recorded ‘If You Love Me’ in a live style setting, basically with nothing virtually added or arranged – a rather impressive feat. taking into account the quality shown here. Check the associated video below found via his YouTube site.

Apologies about the audio quality this week.   Having Issues with my Mic that I was not able to sort out while recording :(

Show ended up being less new music than I hoped.   Wrapped up with a song I’ve been trying to get my hands on for a long time.  Love the vocals on that last track, and I’m sure most of you will too!

Tom Rosenthal: Hey Luis Don’t Bite Me http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/13/tom-rosenthal-hey-luis-dont-bite-me/ http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/13/tom-rosenthal-hey-luis-dont-bite-me/#comments Sat, 13 Dec 2014 13:00:33 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=46203 Tom RosenthalLondon UK singer-songwriter Tom Rosenthal put out today’s featured single, “Hey Luis Don’t Bite Me”, back in June, to what appears to be an ode to a hungry footballer we all primarily remember from Brazil’s World Cup. It’s a superb stand-alone track which you don’t even need to know of the biting sportsman to love. If there was actually a retrospective for the year on this site, this song would likely be among the top.

Animation on the video we’ve embedded further below is by a lad named Dave Anderson. Also be sure to check out Tom’s first two albums and more on his releases over on his Bandcamp page and over at Soundcloud.
