Ireland is home to a variety of underground music scenes, from electro acoustic, to new music to noise to free improv. I've interviewed dozens of Irish experimental musicians who are pushing the boundaries of what music is and can be. This series takes you on a tour of the fringes of music, and introduces you to a world of new sounds. It focuses in particular on circuit bending, chiptune and collaborative music. The show explores the world of Circuit Bending, Chip Tune, and Electroacoustic music in Ireland. Low cost technology, recycled instruments and a new attitude to tinkering embodied by the ‘maker movement’ are helping to reinvent music. A new generation of Irish musicians raised around computers, the internet and video gaming, see noise as something to be hacked, taken apart, and reconstructed. These artists build their own instruments, whether by recycling toy keyboards, modifying video game consoles, or attaching electronics to traditional stringed instruments. They often share their music online for free, and in doing so challenge our ideas about copyright and ownership. Their playful attitude to technology finds new uses for obsolete devices and brings the collaboration of musicianship to engineering and the arts.

What makes a good band great, what makes them stand out above all the rest, is their commitment to an infallible ideal, the one thing that they strive to do to change people through their music, giving them a deeper experience. For Coyote Union, that ideal is connection. Connection to their fans, to their music and to each other. Coyote Union hopes to inspire, uplift and encourage their listener to overcome the “hard stuff in life” by providing musical therapy and songs that move people by sharing their own life experience, hardship and emotion. People say they might be a little too nice, but they don’t care, they just want to reach as many people as they can with heartfelt words, and a positive spirit. The band was born when founding members Mark Bertel (Percussion), Chris Royer (Guitar), and Jacob Lane (Guitar) discovered Jordan Finley (Bass, Vocals) at the Baxter County Fair in Mountain Home, AR. After many long nights of jamming to the sound of yipping coyotes under the Ozark night...
Austin-based indie roots/pop band, First Year On Earth, have announced their debut self-titled EP set for release June 25th. The EP was mixed by Matt Meli (Sons of Fathers, Gary Clark Jr.) and features violinist Michael McClintock (Gotye, Crowded House). First Year On Earth will be playing a number of upcoming shows in the Midwest surrounding the EP release. Please see below for more details. For more information, please visit: http://firstyearonearth.com/ First Year On Earth, a collaboration between Ryan Murphy (acoustic guitar/vocals), Kris Aflerbaugh (upright bass/backing vocals), Jordan Birchill (lead guitar/backing vocals) and Jimmy Milner (drums), was born from one simple question: What would you do with your last year on earth? Frontman Ryan Murphy knows what he’d do with his. After witnessing a friend tragically lose his life, Ryan Murphy sold what he had and hit the road with nothing but a backpack and a bucket list. His blog (http://lastyearonearth.org/) has since gained attention...
Indie force of nature Skipping Girl Vinegar have returned from the U.S. to officially launch their anticipated third album The Great Wave at Bluesfest in April 2015. Celebrated songwriters, the band have released two critically acclaimed albums to date; Sift the Noise and Keep Calm, Carry the Monkey that made many ‘Album of the Year’ lists, receiving extensive radio play on U.S. college radio, Triple J, ABC and community radio nationwide, as well as thrilling audiences at many of Australia’s premier festivals including Splendour In The Grass, Falls, Woodford, Bluesfest and more. Charting on the U.S. CMJ charts with their Chase The Sun EP, the band were invited to play the CMJ Music Festival in New York in October 2012 alongside showcases in Los Angeles & Nashville. The subsequent U.S. tour saw them climb the CMJ charts, featuring seven weeks inside the Top 100 with numerous #1 and #2 positions across the U.S. including 46 Top 10s.

Described as “a jazzier blues stuck in the wild west” and “a force to be reckoned with” (Musical Chairs Podcast), Burnside & Hooker is a true Americana band. Hailing from Chicago, the band incorporates elements of blues, rock, pop, country, and jazz into their songwriting, using a complex and colorful tapestry of instruments. Lead singer Rachel Bonacquisti, channeling the vocal stylings of Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin, “...crackles with speakeasy sass, and can belt big, brassy notes when called upon” (Illinois Entertainer). Violist Diana Mayne and cellist Ted Graham tackle shredding blues leads, but also transform effortlessly into a lush orchestral texture. Guitarist Michael Vogus, upright bassist Ken Fuller, and drummer Vuck groove on danceable swing tunes, and shake the house with powerful stomping folk beats. With the release of their first album in fall 2013, "Rail Yard Hymns", Burnside & Hooker was described as having “injected a fresh sound into the local music scene through...
Crobot: There was a time when rock radio was dominated by great riffs. From Deep Purple’s “Smoke On the Water” and Derek And The Dominoes’ “Layla” to Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” and Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name Of” it was all about that unmistakable guitar sound that instantly identified a band or song. The four members of Crobot — Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals), Chris Bishop (guitar), Jake Figueroa (bass) and Paul Figueroa (drums) — have united to bring that back. Blending funk, blues, metal and good old-fashioned rock and roll into a howling vortex of Yeagley’s vocals, Bishop’s guitar and the Figueroa’s backbone, Crobot have crafted an album of endless good time rock hooks that sound as inspired today as they would have on AOR radio in 1974. “We grew up with the same riff rock and it’s seemingly lacking in today’s music. We really seem to like the rock of old and felt that was missing,” Yeagley says. “It seems like once we started jamming we didn’t try to find a certain...

Up next, we’ve got some new friends we met up with at a Local Music Week meeting a few weeks ago, Days That End In Why and their song, "Trick Silver Linings".

Trumpeter Jeff Oster was a lounge jazz musician playing clubs until he bailed for a career in finance. But in the early 2000's he decided to start creating his own music. He connected with Windham Hill's Will Ackerman who produced his first album, At Last. Five albums later, he's still working with Ackerman and has a new CD of ambient jazz called Next. Playing mostly flugelhorn, Oster creates atmospheric, slow motion songs and moves into a bit of lounge funk with the legendary Rhythm and Blues rhythm section of Chuck Rainey and Bernard Purdie. From his home in Northern California, Jeff Oster talks about putting together his new album and exploring new directions.

Geographer's hit track "I'm Ready" gets remixed again. This time around, Vacationer add their tropical synth touch to Mike Deni's soulful vocals. The track is transformed into a chilled out summer ready anthem - the perfect nod to Geograher's upcoming spring tour dates, kicking off in Portland on May 6th. Geographer's latest LP Ghost Modern is out now via Roll Call Records. On the twelve songs comprising San Francisco-based romantic indie pop outfit Geographer’s fourth proper studio album, Ghost Modern, composer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike Deni creates timeless compositions with blossoming synthesizers paired with precise orchestral arrangements. Growing increasingly tired with the lack of emphasis on songwriting prevalent in today’s popular culture, here Geographer has fashioned their most cohesive and compelling work to date. “I took a great deal of time crafting the songs for this album before arranging them, before blowing them out with swelling sonic textures that might...
Jonathan Jackson + Enation are an anthemic American rock band with a Euro/Rock flare. Their music has been featured on MTV.com, ‘One Tree Hill’, and ‘General Hospital’, as well as made it into the Top National iTunes Alternative charts. MUSIC BENEATH THE SURFACE 'The first thing people ask us if they've never heard us before is who do you sound like? Well, we like to say that it's as if U2, Radiohead, and Bob Dylan all got together for breakfast, decided to adopt a baby boy, called it Jonathan Jackson + Enation, and then left it to fend for itself,' drummer Richard Lee Jackson says. Jonathan Jackson, lead singer, songwriter, guitar and piano player for the band, speaks up. 'Bands like Coldplay, U2, and Pearl Jam are great examples of artists who are dedicated to their craft but who also see their music as a vehicle for emotional and social change. In short, they are bands who have inspired us to go beneath the surface, to create songs that are not just for entertainment -- but for emotional...

Episode 49: #LMW2015 The Heroine RADIOThanks for tuning in to day four of our Local Music Week 2015 episodes.Well, it finally happened, we’re proud to bring you the hardest working band in San Antonio, The Heroine and their second release, Songs From The Southland Volume 1. Next month, we’ll be taking a trip back in time and bringing you their first full album release, Playing For Keeps. I’ve only seen The Heroine a couple of times, but both times, they were insane. The Heroine is 5 parts hair, 10 parts sweat, 20 parts good old southern rock, and a whole hell of a lotta showmanship. Frontman Lynwood Presley King and the rest of the band truly leave themselves on the stage each night and sometimes Lynwood will throw in a couple of sermons about pain, love, and joy. By the way, if they tell you to some closer to the stage, I’d leave at least 5 feet around them, or you’ll be likely to catch a flying mic stand to the head. However, if you do get hit, it’s rock and roll baby!This is day four...

It would be simple to label Joel Walter as yet another folk songwriter, riding the wave of the genre's increasing popularity. You would be wrong. Joel pens songs with emotional depth unmatched by only but a few of his peers. Today on Inside the Machine, we begin by examining his most recent release, Bitter Lake Reservoir, the inspirations behind it, and his experiences on tour so far. Plus, you'll get to hear tracks from his past efforts, Nowhere In Fiction, and Heart of Branches.
What song makes you cry? It could be "Adagio for Strings," but it could also be "Highway to Hell." As you'll learn on this week's All Songs Considered, the music that gets us weeping can have as much, or more, to do with association than with composition. Last week we sent out a request for songs that make our listeners cry. After reading (and sniffling) through more than 7,000 responses, we've pulled ourselves together and are ready to share a few.

Episode 48: #LMW2015 Fair Coyote RADIOThanks for tuning in to day three of our Local Music Week 2015 episodes.This episode is another RADIO episode, this time for our friend Mauricio Vazquez, known to me as Fair Coyote. Fair Coyote’s music is a veritable plethora of sonic and aural soundscapes. There’s no tying him to a specific genre, although I hear Pink Floyd, tribal, and industrial influences throughout. He is a 23 year old multi-instrumentalist, born in Mexico City, but has transplanted to San Antonio. Right now, he’s been busy creating solo projects and has recently been collaborating with local filmmakers and musicians. Currently Fair Coyote is recording for "Paths" an EP that is set to be released in July.
