Every week Signal Committee create an Eclectic Picks playlist. All tracks are selected from the full inbox of 200 tracks that are submitted each week to Fresh On The Net. Check out their picks from Monday 19th October below.

WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?

Our playlists are orientated to the alternative music fan. Lyrics are not essential, abstract ideas are embraced and the fusing of different genres is encouraged.

This week we ended up with 17 tracks. We tried to keep it under 60 minutes, but we didn’t quite make it!

A FEW WORDS ON THIS WEEKS PICKS

We get the ball rolling with some immersive post-rock from Rave on The Dole that even Explosions In The Sky would be proud of. HACT picks up the mantle with some abstract electronica with hints of Jon Hopkins, passing it on to Liz Cirella who delivers a masterpiece of electronica orchestra that is as upbeat as it is haunting.

Sunstack Jones bring the guitars back on stage, creating a warm fuzz with nods to the early work of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Urzla counters that with some more abstract electronica, Undicii then take us in a new direction with some sublime spacey electronica before it gets weird and funky with Walt’s Frozen Head.

Marble Stars scream ‘3am festival dance tent’ with their nicely textured, downtempo dance music. That transitions nicely into some chilled, atmospheric vibes from Lazy Tiger, with Pulses continuing the downtempo dance grooves, with added emphasis on the electronica.

Shiva and the Hazards resurrect the guitars and give us an Australian take on BRMC with shades of Ian Brown. After that, it’s time to wind down and look at the stars with more spaced out ambient textures from Minimums. Hailing from Zimbabwe, FLVS wins the award for best profile banner but, more importantly, he sounds as good as he looks with his experimental form of eclectic electronica.

Time to sit down and look at the stars again with Bliss Report, and probably best to stay there whilst Velcro Mary threatens to rock out, but keeps it smooth and mellow throughout. The penultimate track from Rainbow Road had me at ‘electronic music for imaginary platform games’. Finally, Junkyard of Silenced Poets bring the list to a close with their interpretation of the sounds of the electronic jungle – a little reminiscent of the Stone Roses’ often overlooked Breaking Into Heaven.
