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 15th 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 90 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!

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).

  • 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 us 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. Thanks to Signal Committee for listening and sharing.
    Absolutely chuffed to feature. Thank you.

  2. Thanks Signal Committee. I loved loads of these tracks… in particular:

    YOUKOL – Rest – nice to hear a deliberately slow electronic track for a change
    WALTER ALIENSON & MINUTE TAKER – Neon Lines – just a great track
    SAM JUNER – Silhouette – dreamy dream music with a fog of meshed guitars
    SPINDLE ENSEMBLE – Okemah Sundown – ye gads there is so much in this to love, unexpected cadences, strange instrumentation… the melodies…
    JAMES LINDSAY – Observatory – fab sounds and thoughtful build up to a jazz/rock/folk extravaganza, loved it when the bass followed the main tune.
    NEON GRU – I Am A Bird – wonderful flowing chord sequences and great singing, bit like a dreamy bond movie theme
    WHIRLING ROMANTICS – Press Play – a lovely cool groove and laid back feel

  3. Many thanks to Signal Committee for featuring our upcoming single ‘Tidal Wave’ on this wonderful playlist. We feel very honoured!

  4. Thanks so much sharing my track. Really appreciate the support!!
