Summer School is now in session! Introducing idobi Radio Summer School, the brand new touring festival that aims to put new music discovery at the forefront, providing emerging and developing bands a platform to be introduced to larger audiences across the country. The inaugural run features some of the most buzzed-about up-and-coming artists in the scene today: Stand Atlantic, Magnolia Park, The Home Team, Scene Queen, Honey Revenge, and Letdown. This group of artists - truly our next generation of headline acts - highlights the music, diversity of culture, inclusivity, and positivity of the community.

Founded by Eric Tobin (Hopeless Records), Michael Kaminsky (KMGMT), and Kevin Lyman (Warped Tour), the idea for idobi Radio Summer School came about as the three founders saw there was a development deficit for artists in their music community and scene. These acts are often left to support touring bills and festivals where there is no spotlight on their current success or a moment for them to truly shine. Alongside that, prices for tickets have soared astronomically, subsequently turning away potential new fans looking for a community and cultural home. (continue)

The 50th anniversary of Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs album is being celebrated by the syndicated radio show In The Studio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands.

Redbeard shared this synopsis for the episode: Apparently Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs album, released in April 1974, is held in high esteem by more than just me over these last five decades. If you really were paying attention prior to 1974, you might have noticed Robin Trower's muscular, bluesy guitar on English art rocker Procol Harum's Home and Broken Barricades albums, albeit tantalizingly brief, on the songs "Simple Sister" and the rollicking (although incongruous for Procol Harum's baroque keyboard sound) "Whiskey Train". "I think I got a little sick of keyboards," Robin chuckles by way of explaining why he left to form his own trio bearing his name. (read more)

Hamilton, ON indie folk act Dark Mean just released their new single "Working Hard", and to celebrate we asked Sandy Johnston to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

I remember coming up with the main guitar riff for this track alone in Billy's jam space while waiting for Mark to arrive and for Billy to finish putting his newborn baby (who is now 11 haha) to bed. For some reason I was inspired to crank up the volume and distortion, which is rare for me. I started messing around and all of a sudden the idea started to form. Then it was just a matter of getting it from my head to my guitar. It's one of those riffs you know from the start is fully formed and not going to change. I remember rockin out pretty hard all by myself and getting excited to show the guys. At that point I didn't think it would turn into a Dark Mean song because it was more rock n' roll than our usual vibe, but I was excited to jam it with the guys just for fun. (continue)
