Eclectic Picks: Batch 397

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 1st March 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 70 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!

With the amount of music we listen to each week, we often don’t realise which artists have an album out, let alone have time to listen to it. However, we did spot that Restless Mosaic has an album out and, having made his third appearance on Eclectic Picks, we thought we’d check it out. We weren’t disappointed, so if you like that track, why not give his album a whirl (after you’ve listened to the playlist below in full of course).

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.

  1. I had no idea what to expect submitting my debut tracks to this the first day I could, but…I’m blown away by the support and the community a continent away (I’m in Seattle). Everyone I’ve told about Fresh on the Net and Eclectic Picks has been impressed by its ability to collect and curate great new talent, and I’ve got a friend who wants to listen to the Eclectic Picks list every week just because it’s good.

    Thank you SO MUCH.

    Particle Drift – Conversational Equations
    Depths Records – El Silencio
    Weatnu Records – Glow
    88/89 – Valentine (because I 100% need to know if that is a doubled-up kazoo solo in the middle)
