CLOSED As much as it pains me to announce, Audio Gumshoe is now in permanent hiatus. I absolutely enjoyed the many years of production and the opportunity to share music from so many talented musicians.

Unfortunately, the times have changed and priorities have shifted. Perhaps, one day, I’ll be able to pick up the glass to again scour through the many great files that contain independent music releases. Until that time comes, PLEASE visit the Association of Music Podcasting to find many other great independent music podcasts. I’ve been a proud member of this organization for so many years. I highly recommend that you explore the shows found there.

When possible I am working to add all shows played since 2005 to my account at Archive.org. You can search for Audio Gumshoe or Miami Valley Musicast to find many of them now. This has been a great journey.

Keep the music playing. I wish you all the best.

Rich

Sam Harrison

image of musician Sam Harrison
Can we talk about dynamics? Seriously, you need to investigate this. Something has happened in the music world over the past several decades. We’ve lost the dynamics. Every song being produced for commercial consumption seems to be pushed to its very sonic limits. Songs are compressed, pushed to a point where the frequencies are clipped and we’ve become conditioned to be okay with distorted recordings (I’m not talking about distortion as an effect with guitars and other instruments).

Sam Harrison is an artist that has released new songs that are mastered in the way we should hear them. Very little compression. Dynamics are intact. In fact, his entire EP “The Wish” is mastered for listening on vinyl recordings.

The most impressive information about Sam Harrison’s new release is that it was recorded on a 1969 Sully 8-Track 1 tape machine. He and his producer/engineer brother, Rob, discovered the machine and refurbished it for use in their studio at Long Haired Music in Spilsby, Lincolnshire. They wanted to experiment to see what type of sounds that they could produce. It soon became obvious that something special was forming; they released these sessions in the order that they were recorded as the EP “The Wish.”

Sam Harrison is quickly carving a name for himself. He has played at the 2012 Olympic Games, at Glastonbury 2013, and the Edinburgh Fringe. He also tours with his band “The Breakfast Club.”

When discussing his new EP, Sam says, “Working to tape was the best thing. I had to work less on building a texture, because whatever I put down just sounded right.” He continues, “When I heard myself back, I heard classic records in the tone and just went ‘OK – That’s how they did it. Mystery solved.'”

I leave it to you to follow the (very few) links in this page to find out more about this musician.

Enjoy the show — and don’t forget to talk up Sam Harrison on your social profiles. He’ll love knowing that you’re talking about him.

Babirusa

Babirusa album art for MMGS
From time to time a band or solo artist will submit music to Audio Gumshoe that is difficult to describe. This particular submission comes from an experimental group based in Louisville, Kentucky. They offered very little background info about themselves, so the gumshoe had to go to work.

Babirusa has several albums and single songs released at their account on Bandcamp. These include the recent collection “Mitch McConnell’s Grapefruit Stand.” I’ve played three songs from that collection, as well as a new release from December. And, if you are so inclined, I highly recommend that you visit the Bandcamp page to hear their rendition of the Disney tune “Grim Grinning Ghosts.”

What can I say about the band? First, I like them. Second, for some reason this album reminded me a bit of The Small Faces release from 1969 called “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake.” I don’t need to tell you, but I will: I listened to that release over and over again until I broke the… 8-track. Yes. I said it.

Finally, one of the most unique things about this band is that they have foregone the typical pop-rock instrumentation that includes a bass player. Instead, they have a cellist. I like cellists. I am one. (But I’m also a bass player.)

I leave it to you to follow the (very few) links in this page to find out more about this band.

Enjoy the show — and don’t forget to talk up Babirusa on your social profiles. They’ll love knowing that you’re talking about them.

Bliss Bomb

Bliss Bomb Album Art for Fever Dream
Whomever decided to deliver the file for this band to the Audio Gumshoe offices must have known that this would be a case that we couldn’t refuse. Bliss Bomb is a smoldering female-fronted ten-piece band playing a dynamic blend of original pop, funk and jazz, with a sexy-sophisticated vibe that harkens back to old Hollywood glamour and smoky film noir. What’s not to like?

And just when we thought that we’d figured them out — they switched direction on us. It wasn’t the classic double-back maneuver, though. They went into outer-space! You’ll want to take your gravity boots — and maybe your elephant gun — if you want to catch up to this group. They’ll have you so distracted with gravity-resistant dancing and full-on jungle boogie that you’ll forget what it was that you meant to do.

Bliss Bomb released an album called “Fever Dream.” It is available at CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon. Here’s some surveillance video that we found.

Somebody else seems to be watching them, too. You’ll want to play the show audio to hear full cuts of these songs, though.

I leave it to you to follow the links in this page to find out more about this band. Watch your back, though. They seem to know how to get into trouble.

Enjoy the show — and don’t forget to talk up Bliss Bomb on your social profiles. They’ll love knowing that you’re talking about them.

Monks of Mellonwah

Monks of Mellonwah Ghost Stories EP album art

How this band showed up in the Audio Gumshoe file stack is a mystery to me. They are well known the world over. They have won awards (‘International Rock Artist Of The Year’ at the Los Angeles Music Awards, 2012 and ‘Best Indie RockBand’ at the Artists In Music Awards, 2012) and they have appeared on broadcasts, web sites and podcasts for quite some time.

Something must be hiding in this band’s existence that has caused to us to miss something significant. Is it that they recently worked with producer Keith Olson (Fleetwood Mac, Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner, Heart, Joe Walsh)? No, that’s readily available information. Are we missing something about their diligence in working toward worldwide acceptance? No, they’ve recently signed with A&R Worldwide (Coldplay, Muse, Adele). That information is readily available, as well.

I leave it to you to follow the links in this page to find out more about this band. After listening, I believe that you’ll find that they create good, solid, well-produced music that will leave you to wanting to hear more. Be cautious, though. They may have a dark side. The song titles played in today’s episode hint to something a bit more sinister.

Enjoy the show — and don’t forget to talk up the Monks of Mellonwah on your social profiles. They’ll love knowing that you’re talking about them.

James Tristan Redding

James Tristan Redding album image
In this file you will find information about a man that has been difficult to track. He has come out from a difficult situation, however, and has begun to tell his story in his songs. James Tristan Redding was known to be a member of the genre-bending band Union Pulse in Wisconsin.

After a period of time to drag himself out of the bottle while writing songs in Mexico, he has moved himself to New York City. There he has recorded a solo album of material called Walking Into Brooklyn, which he released on 12 November 2013. He recorded this collection from his small seven foot by nine foot apartment.

You’ll want to look for Redding outside of his apartment, though. He can often be found performing his material throughout eastern U.S., including parts of Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and beyond. Be sure to look for his schedule at his ReverbNation or Facebook profiles.

I should also mention that he shows a philanthropic side. He’s donating 1/2 of his music sales at ReverbNation to Love, Hope, Strength.

Songs Played

- A Girl Named Elizabeth

The Non-Domestiks

non-domestiks file image

When the client doesn’t seem to know what sound they are looking to find, it makes this gumshoe’s work a bit more difficult. I had been asked to locate a band that sounded like “early 70’s ballad pop in the likes of the Carpenters and Elton John, combined with a hint of art and prog rock with classical influences similar to the Moody Blues and Renaissance, then throw in some Lou Reed, Bowie and Rundgren for a little edge.” Yeah, sure.

So, with a little digging I was able to locate a duo in the Philadelphia area called The Non-Domestiks. Apparently, these two women don’t spend much time in the home or in the office. They are busy playing multiple instruments and recording tracks for their albums. Both Rosalba Gallo and Katrina Wylie have the ability to play keyboard, guitar and bass. It seems that Rosalba focuses on playing lead guitar, as well as bass and drums. Her musical partner, Katrina, plays keys and woodwinds, not limited to saxophone, clarinet and bassoon.

They’ve recently released an album called September Monday. In my research, I discovered that they named it this way after reading a news article about the frequency of suicides on Mondays in the month of September. Youch. I’d be cautious about the lyrics in these tracks, just to be safe.

I have to admit, I dig the sound these two are dishing out. Be sure to talk about them on your social media profiles, such as Twitter and Facebook. It will raise their egos and also let them know that you’ve been to the office to dig through my files. You never know what you’ll find in that heap o’ manila folders on my desk.

The High Fidelics

The High Fidelics promo image

Be careful with that submission envelope. You might want to grab a towel. Today’s artist is “retro fresh” surf instrumental music by Birmingham, Alabama’s very own The High Fidelics.

According to the info tracked down at their ReverbNation profile:

This “retro fresh” all instrumental band has started the chattering-class chattering and the toe-tappers’ toes tapping. When you’re at a High Fidelics show, you’ll feel like you’re basking on a California beach, hanging out in a no-wave NYC club, and eating grits at a Memphis soul club — all at the same time. Based in Birmingham, Alabama, this group of men-of-a-certain-age burst into the public eye in October 2010 and has not slowed down yet.

Be sure to talk about the band on your social media profiles, such as Twitter and Facebook. It will raise their egos and also let them know that you’ve been to the office to dig through my files. You never know what your’e going to find in that ragged stack on my desk.

Starfall – Shards

Starfall band image

We’ve found some rock and metal in the latest envelope slid under the door at the Audio Gumshoe offices. It made the package a bit heavy. And that’s good; there have been some lightweight submissions recently. This band, Starfall, has changed their identity, so it’s good that you found them. They used to be called Blood of the Fallen. It is known that they frequent the Mississauga and Toronto, Ontario communities. Not only have the changed their name, they have released a new tune, Shards, with a slightly different sound. I gave you some leads to find out more about them in the info below.

Oh, by the way, if you find any more information about this band, be sure to share it on your Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or other social media accounts. It will help them be found by others much more quickly.

Apparitions – The Minimalist and the Illusionist

The Minimalist And The Illusionist

Thanks for coming back the Audio Gumshoe offices. I see you’ve found the envelope that I had placed on the top of the stack. This band, Apparitions, released an EP on October 15, 2013. They have confused me, though. They were post-hardcore. Now, it seems, they have released an acoustic style collection of tunes. See what else you can find out about them. I gave you some leads in the info below.

Oh, by the way, if you find any more information about this band, be sure to share it on your Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or other social media accounts. It will help them be found by others much more quickly.

– I Miss You Like Summer

paper work piles

It took a little bit longer than expected, but Audio Gumshoe is returning soon with a brand new lineup of music to share.

There was a pile of dust on the desk and a great number of envelopes shoved through the AG office mail slot. We’re sifting through it all and putting the files together.

The format will differ slightly from what you have heard in the past. Each episode will feature three songs with link information to help you find the artist. It will be your assignment to track them down if you like what you hear. There are a great number of files piling up, so expect to hear a lot of music very soon!

Many of the recent episodes of Audio Gumshoe have not been available for download. When I took a break, I put the hosting service on hold. Unfortunately, they cycled the previous episodes into a closed archive which made them unavailable for streaming or downloading.

Over the course of the next few weeks I’ll be adding these shows to Archive.org. When these are posted, they will slowly start becoming available again in the feed and for streaming here at Audio Gumshoe.com.

You will find that many of the original Miami Valley Musicast shows (the early version of this offering) are already available. Go way back to episodes 1-30 to hear more!

Audio Gumshoe is Taking a Break

image of electric bass with broken neck

Dear Audio Gumshoe listener and reader:

Audio Gumshoe is taking a break. Many outside commitments cause me to divert attention away from the show. It is not fair to the musicians when I let their files stack up in the AG file cabinet. Many great artists have sent tunes to the show. I don’t get enough opportunity to let you hear them.

The show will be back as soon as I can give it more attention. Until then, I invite you to follow my posts at Twitter, Google+ and Facebook. I will share links to artists that I like. Hopefully, you will like them, too.

Many of you have been faithful listeners since the show began (as Miami Valley Musicast). I appreciate your comments and your dedication. Thank you for being on this wonderful ride with me.

I will see you around the next bend. Until then, I wish you all the best.

Rich

Christina Custode

Songs Played

- Wasting My Time
- Nothing
- The La-La Song
- The Mistletoe Song
- Mirror
//

About the Show

Custode was twice named “Buffalo’s Best Female Vocalist” (Artvoice “2010 Best of Buffalo” and “2011 Best of Buffalo”) and currently fronts a pop-rock trio. “Christina Custode and Rerun” were recognized as “Buffalo’s Best Original Music Act” (Artvoice “2011 Best of Buffalo”),

Audio Gumshoe is privileged to present the music of Christina Custode. Familiar to long-time listeners of the show, this episode returns to an earlier format with an interview of the featured artist. It was a pleasure to speak with Christina. Opportunities such as this are few and far between, but they give us all a very intimate look at the work and personality of our featured guest.

Christina Custode is a busy musician. She performs regularly in and around her home of Niagara Falls, New York. She performs with numerous jazz groups on piano and vibraphone, is a cocktail piano soloist, and is a member of numerous blues and commercial bands.

In the interview, you will hear what inspires Christina to write her music, a bit about her stage show, and where to get her music (see links below). She shares insight to her family’s background in music, as well as her career as a music teacher. You’ll also learn about a very special tune called “The Mistletoe Song.” Christina talks about her motivation to write this great tune.

Be sure to visit Christina’s web site — and most certainly pick up a copy of the album “I” so that you can continue to enjoy her well written, well produced, collection of music.

“A little Sara Bareilles at times, some Lisa Loeb at others, even a bit of Basia at one point. Christina Custode has a little of everything for you here. Nothing & Crush are the big power ballads surrounded by pop songs like The One Thing and The LaLa Song. There’s an excellent chance her first big hit will come from this album.”

Recalling Love in the Here and Now

calendar image with heart

Original image created by findingthenow at Flickr.com. http://www.flickr.com/photos/-karens-/ Creative Commons by-nc-sa 2.0

It seems that the lyrics and titles of songs begin to create a greater theme when I’m putting these shows together. As I listen to each of the artists’ submission, I begin to realize an overall picture or thought. Today, it is that love can be brutal. We remember it, we want to dismiss it, we want to find it again, we fear it, and yet we hope to make it last. If you like what you hear in today’s show — or perhaps don’t — please leave me your thoughts/feedback by clicking the “Send Voicemail” tab on the right hand side of the page — or by visiting the voicemail page. You can also submit your comments using the form on the contact page.

Many listeners and readers of Audio Gumshoe know that Music Xray is an additional place to find opportunities to have their music heard. From the Music Xray FAQ:

MusicXray is a platform where artists can submit their music directly to Industry Professionals.

Just a Bit Negative

Negative image in foreground with positive images in the background

Why the title? There are titles, themes and lyrics in many of the songs on this episode that tell us the songwriter was inspired by a significant event or their dislike of a situation. But, these are some great songs, that I hope you enjoy. If you like what you hear — or perhaps don’t — please leave me your thoughts/feedback by clicking the “Send Voicemail” tab on the right hand side of the page — or by visiting the voicemail page. You can also submit your comments using the form on the contact page.
