The Non-Domestiks

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.

Songs Played

– Is There No One

The High Fidelics – Surf Instrumental – AG170

Play

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.

Songs Played

– Lil’ Curfew
– Black Dahlia
– Midnight Requisition

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.

Songs Played

– Under the Sky
– Underneath
– Shards

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.

Songs Played

– Cease Fire
– I Miss You Like Summer
– Oh, Love

We’re coming back!

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!
