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 11th January 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.
A FEW WORDS ON THIS WEEKS PICKS
This week was always going to be mighty competitive after the 6 week break, and that shows with just over 90 minutes of eclectic picks in our opening playlist to 2021.
As always, there’s all sorts going on in this mix with the usual offerings of trip hop, electronica, ambient, indie rock, dreampop and lots of other weird and wonderful stuff.
First of all, hats off BLISS REPORT, CLUSTERS OF EYES and SKINNYBOY TUNES for also making this weeks ‘Fresh Faves’ – consider that ‘doing the double’, with the triple possibly in sight if you’re lucky enough to have caught Tom’s ears for the R6 Mixtape.
I won’t dwell on every track but put it this way…. if we picked your track, we liked it and inevitably others will too if you can keep plugging away to get your music heard! I will, however, give a few shout outs to:
- CHRIS McCONVILLE, for going out of his comfort zone this week and dipping his toe into a bit of electronica – we’d like to see how that might develop!
- LOHRD SNOHW, who somehow managed to bend the rules (I don’t actually have any rules) to make the list twice in the form of a guest vocalist, and also a collaboration with KATE BRUNOTTS.
- BULZARA, who I noticed got his track below, Anuta Howl, on to his local BBC Introducing this weekend
As for the ZEROPOINT PROJECTS track, this is a track I came across a few months ago and frankly I’m fed up of telling everyone how good it is, so I’m not going bother to mentioning him, or his track. Not once.
But, seriously, there’s some absolute belters in the list below so if you’re reading this please put aside 90 minutes, give it a full blast through and drop a comment below with some positive vibes to all these emerging artists.
