Cafeine: Love Disease (Christmas in New York) http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/20/cafeine-love-disease-christmas-in-new-york/ http://insomniaradio.net/2014/12/20/cafeine-love-disease-christmas-in-new-york/#comments Sat, 20 Dec 2014 13:00:49 +0000 http://insomniaradio.net/?p=46312 CafeineMontreal artist Xavier Cafeine is preparing to release his next album New Love on February 17th and has just put out the first excellent holiday flavored single, “Love Disease (Christmas in New York).” While the forthcoming New Love is described as an anthemic celebration of the will to survive, his first single, is also described an ode to the pain and isolation of one’s first Christmas without a lost love.

Fluent in both English and French, Cafeine likens his approach to songwriting to an accomplished chef who favors using several varied ingredients:

“I really want to push my musical boundaries, explore a wider spectrum, and return to what I love about writing and recording. We often try to define music into styles and categories. My music has been described as garage, glam, punk, and pop. Whatever. I always found it a bit simplistic. I am a musician first and foremost.”

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!
