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

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.
