Eclectic Picks: Batch 396

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 22nd February 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 WEEK’S PICKS

This week we ended up with just over 60 minutes of eclectic picks. As always, there’s some belters in there. If you got this far, give the full list a blast and drop a comment below with your thoughts!

Also worth a listen are miniBodZ (electronic) and Will Johnson-Dublon (acoustic) who were only omitted due to a conflict of interests.

You can listen to this weeks playlist using the player below, or click here to open the Soundcloud playlist in a new window.

RADIO OPPORTUNITIES

We all have ambitions to get on national radio, but in the meantime there are loads of great, independent radio stations that are always looking for new music of the alternative variety. They offer no promises, but the following hosts tell me they that, if you made this list, they’d like you to get in touch to be considered for their show:

  • Chris Watts, presenter of “In The Moog” online on NCCR (UK) (Twitter: @chriswatts1965.  Electronic/synth-based tracks (mp3 &/or WAV) to chrisinthemoog@gmail.com, together with artwork &/or band pic and your Twitter handle).
  • Lucas Gil, presenter of Supernova on Glitterbeam Radio (Twitter @lucasgil, apply by his website here)
  • Joe Figueira of North Manchester FM (Twitter @moretonguy, apply with MP3, short bio & twitter handle by e-mail to joefigueira@yahoo.co.uk)

Any other radio producers looking for a steer, just let me know if you want to join the club.

PLAYLIST ARCHIVE

All tracks featured above will be added to our monthly playlist. We will also ‘follow’ you on Spotify to keep track of any future releases – which will appear on our revolving weekly playlist. As for our ‘all time favourites’, well, there’s a playlist for that too.
