Winter: Crazy http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/29/winter-crazy/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/29/winter-crazy/#comments Sun, 29 Mar 2015 12:00:39 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=47803 WinterLA dreampop band Winter just last week had the opportunity to perform at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin and are also making quite a splash when they very recently released their first full length record “Supreme Blue Dream” via Lolipop Records. The LP was reportedly created through a coast to coast collaboration between band members Samira Winter and Nolan Eley, and it appears the two added a few extra musicians to round out their live sound when they were down in Texas.

In addition to this excellent track we’ve also included the great video for the earlier release of ‘Bedroom Philosophies’ found further below. You can find the rest of the tracks from “Supreme Blue Dream” at the respective Soundcloud and Bandcamp links.

Inlet Sound: Saturday http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/28/inlet-sound-saturday/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/28/inlet-sound-saturday/#comments Sat, 28 Mar 2015 12:00:37 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=47787 Inlet SoundToronto, Canada indie pop band Inlet Sound is described as the musical convergence of passionate folk-rock spirit and atmospheric pop form. 2012 found the band surrounded by and tirelessly crafting ‘The Romantics’, their first full-length record, in cabins and churches with acclaimed producer Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep, Hey Rosetta!).

A year following the release the band offered up a special download on Bandcamp of ‘The Romantics’ (Special Edition) for free, a really solid album we highly recommend you add to your collection. You can check it out in its entirety at the respective link below.

We’ve embedded one of the band’s last cover tracks as well, a favorite by Canadian indie band, Wintersleep, namely “Weighty Ghost”.

Broken Boy: She Said http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/26/broken-boy-she-said/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/26/broken-boy-she-said/#comments Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:00:48 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=47766 Broken Boy

Scottish band, Broken Boy started up in 2013 when brothers Stewart and Cam began to write together after flirting with several separate musical projects. Initially, the ambition was to expand their sound into an Arcade Fire style six piece band, but they decided their sound was more suited to a stripped back three-piece indie vibe, and in 2015 the brothers joined forces with drummer Fraser Laing.

With the band fresh out the studio with Chem 19’s Paul Savage (Twilight Sad, Teenage Fanclub). Broken Boy have announced their forthcoming single Just To Leave You, releasing on 27th April 2015 via Canvas Records. They’ve apparently got a new video to join this on the way, but in the meantime check out this rocking single called “She Said” and the excellent accompanying video below, posted last February.

Garlic Kings – Shoulder to Shoulder http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/24/garlic-kings-shoulder-to-shoulder/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/03/24/garlic-kings-shoulder-to-shoulder/#comments Tue, 24 Mar 2015 12:00:24 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=47707 Garlic KingsIn our most recent dive into the world of celtic music near St. Paddys we ran into the following self described “folk-punk-rock” eight-piece from Saint Petersburg, Russia, who started pulling off their first high energy live performances in 2009. The musicians adhere to a position of ‘No politics No racism’. The music is best described as thus:
It represents rather a fascinating mix of pirate, sea and port romance, boisterous punk, covers of popular songs unusually interpreted, all of it made rich with a fair portion of folk instruments, flavoured with Celtic jigs and spiced with a decent spoonful of cynical humour. The main orienting points in the band’s music are world-famous ‘pillars’ of the genre: Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers, The Pogues.

Today’s excellent featured track is from the 2011 release, “On the Shores of the Baltic” and a taste of their live performance of the same title follows in the video below.
