You can always request a song right from the player page, or go to gashouseradio.com/request. Now here is a look at some of the bands currently on The Radar:
Out of the Beardspace: We have seen these guys several times, and they are a spectacle. They are incredibly talented musicians with a sound that cannot be compared or placed in any single genre. In a psychedelic explosion of sound and color, Out of the Beardspace expresses its wide range of emotions. Planned sections of improvisation flow seamlessly in and out of compositions which fuse jazz, pop, funk, and rock into a Beardly Beast that will certainly move you. Beyond sound, Out of the Beardspace is also committed to facilitating a conversation about redesigning human systems for a healthier future. Include this band in your Friday soundtrack today at 9am, 2pm, and 6pm.
tHE POLES: The Poles from Vancouver BC started out in late 2012. Their first 7 inch ‘Merman / The Pest’, which they self released last November (2013), perfectly captures their erratic approach to post-punk.
Elastic Sleep: Dark dream pop from Cork, Ireland.
Mortimer Nova: Mortimer Nova is a dark indie band from Tampa, Fl that has been around since 2002. They are in the midst of recording their third full album set to release around the summer of 2014. Currently they are ranked as the #1 local and the 19th national band on Reverb Nation.
Vita and the Woolf: The band consists of a drummer and a vocalist who plays keys and guitar. Vita and the Woolf got its name from the love relationship between writers, Vita Sack-ville West and Virginia Woolf and Vita is a stage character the lead singer assumes while on stage. We are inspired by electronic, folk with some soul mixed in between.
The Daydream Club: Picked up by BBC Introducing, the track has now been played by all 39 regional BBC radio stations and we’d love you to consider adding it to your station playlist too. The track is the second single to be taken from the Leicester duo’s Found EP which was released at the end of 2013.
Orion Freeman: Orion Freeman is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing seeker from the woods just beyond the mortar and bricks of Philadelphia. His souled-out, reggae-infused, flamenco-tinged, bluesy folk-rock aspires to move: your shoes; your heart; the cobwebs, so as to peer into your soul. Hovering somewhere within the chasm between the worldly and the divine, his music is an intimate glimpse into the spiraling states of freedom and folly, playfulness and prayer.
SWITCHMEN: Reveling in their Appalachian roots, Switchmen boasts the sounds of unapologetic, Shotgun-Fed Rock ‘n Roll. Nashville-based by way of Kentucky, the rock trio has a knack for tastefully mixing a slew of influences from edgy rock to raw blues, and even a polished touch of classical undertones.
And congrats to Skinny Cool Kid. SCK spent 15 straight days on The Radar and will be the first retired champion of the year. Look for Skinny Cool Kid in studio on Thursday, February 15th. His EP No Risk (available on Bandcamp) is now in heavy rotation.
So turn on Gashouse Radio right now, and leave it on for the rest of the day. You will hear new music, great music, and we even give you the option to program a few songs with the auto-request. Make us your Friday soundtrack.
