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]

Super Magic Hats: This Last Week http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/16/super-magic-hats-this-last-week/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/16/super-magic-hats-this-last-week/#comments Sat, 16 May 2015 12:00:32 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48428 Super Magic HatsSuper Magic Hats is a Melbourne-via-London based musician, beatmaker and producer whose work embraces melody, noise and experimentation. As an accomplished guitarist and bass player, live instrumentation makes its way into many Super Magic Hats tracks, while a love of the unusual leads to electronic gadgets such as Yamaha’s Tenori-On featuring prominently. Super Magic Hats also loves experimenting with a wide range of samples, including chopped up vocals, field recordings of streetscapes and everything in between. This sound is underpinned by interest in production trickery and effects, which washes intricate edits, delicately placed details and other sonic mutations with layers of reverb and delay.

Today’s featured track comes from ‘Slowly’, the 3rd EP following up from last year’s “Kumori” on Seattle’s Hush Hush Records. Slowly is a bright and bubbly collection of tracks that see Super Magic Hats exploring an upbeat, melodic and glitchy musical territory, loosely focused around the theme of falling in love. Slowly brings to the fore Super Magic Hats’ J-Pop influences and playful, Gold Panda-esque sample slicing, pairing this with a growing maturity as a producer.

Slowly is Super Magic Hats’ first collaboration with Japan’s Tanukinieri Records, a prolific and eclectic netlabel that has been listed by Pitchfork & MTV81, among others, as one of the essential labels in Japan right now.

Jeremy Bass: Firefly http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/15/jeremy-bass-firefly/ http://insomniaradio.net/2015/05/15/jeremy-bass-firefly/#comments Fri, 15 May 2015 12:00:45 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=48423 Jeremy Bass Today’s Dose is by Jeremy Bass and is from his album New York In Spring which is to be Self-Released on June 9th, 2015. This one of two seasonal albums released in 2015, earlier he released Winter Bare.

“For the last decade, Brooklyn-based songwriter Jeremy Bass has been the Musical Director of The Secret City, the OBIE Award (Off-Broadway Theater Awards) winning performance gathering. Bass started with the group when its membership numbered in the single digits, and has seen The Secret City’s membership grow to the thousands during his tenure.

“Even with such a substantial and supportive artistic community as an integral part of his daily life, Bass wrote his new pair of albums in literal isolation. Returning to single living in Brooklyn after a rough divorce in late 2013, Bass found himself secluded in an empty house, sifting through his memories.” [bio via Fanatic]
